Half of the story...



Popcaan, Romain Virgo, Spragga Benz...

Every jamaican reggae superstar seem to have their alter-ego on the huge "zimdancehall scene" down in Zimbabwe.

And we love it same speed.

And guess what.

I do think it's the same thing for the world legendary "Afrodrop mixtape"!!!

Somebody told me that this "so very great" mixtape paying tribute to the african one drop genre will soon also have its follow up!

Selah.

Keep in touch.

(Message sent to the 10 massives who follow this page):) (but life is great still!)

DUBBY FRIDAY

Feel like posting some ra*ssclat dubby zelekshuns today.

Thanks to Cash Money Sound from Portmore for bringing back this perfect soljie anthem(2013) by Mavado on their last cultural mix.

The ghosty voice of the Gully Ghost fits this version so perfectly.

"-Mavado, are you here in this room?

-...

-?????

-.............................................. "

Anyway. Gangsta for life.

Soldia Sound for Life.

Sweet Song Of The Day: "Best for you" - Sean Tizzle

This song is just the perfect match between dancehall(diwali sample, you again?), pop and delicious cheesy rnb.

Best 2018 tune so far in my humble opinion.

Enjoy.

MOZEY RADIO est mort (et la musique aussi un peu du coup). C'est nul...



Pour ceux qui ne le connaîtraient pas, Radio était le chanteur d'un duo ougandais qui a régné sur la musique urbaine est-africaine pendant plus de 10 ans.

Ça s'appelait "Radio and Weasel".

Et Radio c'était le big man du groupe.

Sa voix, c'était un peu du Jah Cure mais en mieux.

Il y a 5 jours, ben il est mort.

D'une manière de merde. Il s'est retrouvé dans une baston qui a mal tourné et il est mort.

Même si j'ai jamais capté toutes ses lyrics vu qu'il balançait souvent en swahili ou en d'autres langues vernaculaires,

à chaque fois que je l'entendais, ça me faisait du bien.

La violence de ses harmonies saturées d'autotune m'ont buté plus d'une fois.

On kiffait bien s'envoyer ses derniers tunes avec mon pote Chukky.

Ça paraît con à dire mais la musique, ce sera plus vraiment la même chose sans Radio.

Y aura plus de nouveaux tunes de lui.

Et ça fait vraiment chier.

Respect éternel à ce gars-là.

Voilà un de ses derniers tunes et ce putain de trio avec Wizkid...

Why go anywhere else?

It's always fun to see how some punks a gaze time looking for the best reggae mixes on the internet.

If these nerds had some sense, they would come straight to this fucking mo'future page.

Cause this is the home of good reggae.

Dem shoulda kno (#gangsta taaak)

But anyway...

These two hot mixes below are a concentrate of what last year was all about, both reggaematically/onedropically and dancehallically.

Dont search anymore. It's here.

Made up by my friends from Straight Sound.

BOOKAM SHOOKAM!

Solid shit as usual.

PS: SHARE!!!




Tune Of The Day: Ota Benga Smile - King Mas (USA)

If you've been visiting this blog from long time you supposed to know how much I rate King Mas.

If you don't, you can still(yes still...)download the first volume of the mo'future mixtapes HERE.

This one, which was released 7 years ago, is packed with a whole lot of King Mas (then known as MASSICKER) early efforts.

Check "Legacy"-probably his biggest tune ever.

But in the mean time, this video could go by the simple name of teachings.

If you don't overspend the concept of the video, just watch it to the very last drop.

Then you'll understand the point, I think.

Trinidadian Chronicles Chapter III: Kerry John



Was already deep deep in Jah Melody's delivery on this riddim (Bidibidi bad tune named "Lucky").

Only came across this one by Kerry John yesterday, 2 years after its street release.

What a waist of time...

Big up John Kerry Kerry John and Millbeatz same speed.

3000% Mo'FuTURE seelekshan dis.



Version of the chief of staff. Just in case...

Well talking bout Trini...

... here's what happens to be A BIG BADD BLOODCLAAAAT TUNE.

YUH hear?

BUN A FIRE, MOSIAH. YOU ROCK!!

pull up that a thousand times, please.

Artist Of The Day (again?): BLACK LOYALTY (Trinidad)


In my opinion, Black Loyalty is the best kept secret from outta Trinidad reggae scene.

Together with mentors Jamelody and Isasha (Zebulun where yuh deh?), they keep the rasta flame burning on the soca island.

Now, finally, one year after its release, the very laid back "On my Way"song gets its own video.

In the pack are also included a few other big tunes from the bredda.

Now why not just ketch a fresh litchee smoothie, light up a cigarette and enjoy the moment...huh?

-JAH?

-RASTAFARI.

Listening to the MASTERPIECE...


Tears of joy.

This is definitely a classic! ALBUM DE MA VIE.

Reggae is born again. Run go tell it on the mountain!

Selah!

Hamdoulilah!

Hosanna!

Amen!

Hallelujah!

Mazal Tof!

Rastafari!



Samory I "Black Gold": The BEST REGGAE ALBUM of the DECADE drops tomorrow!!!!


This one is gonna take the world by storm.

Samory I is way more gifted than a lot of bandulus who claim to be the next generation of reggae or the so called reggae revival movement. He doesn't need to sell out (= wear fake throwback yellow mesh marina + hype round sunglasses + desert clarks like the classic rastamen from the 80's... ) to sell records.

His talent is just natural.

So, once and for all, fuck hype and fuck this plastic "reggae revival movement" #bigthieves.

This is real R.E.G.G.A.E.

Nobody can't tell mi nothing...

Gwaan SAMORY. YOU ARE THE BEST.

SIMPLY THE BEST.

BIG UP TINA SED SPEED.

"GOOD SKUNK", HEMP HIGHER AND ALL OF THESE THINGS...

JAHNATON is a long time riddim maker based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Besides building riddims for RIGA'S HEMP HIGHER (check www.hempigher.com), JAHNATON is also member of the famous swiss sound system STRAIGHT SOUND alongside MEHDI and MIGWAAN (pree www.straightsound.ch).

A few days ago, this bredda finally decided to release his first both musical AND vocal effort.

It's a remix of Travis Scott's "Goosebumps" rewritten in a more, let's say, "rasta livity oriented" kind of style.

The whole thing is sung in a sufferer's ("sufferant"'s) style on a cool "dubby-aquatic-one dropical" riddim built by the chef himself.

Hope you'll enjoy it as I do.

Reespek to the whole HEMP HIGHER/STRAIGHT SOUND fam'.



Besides this great remix, JAHNATON and RIGA are also the originators of these amazing reggae remixes of Ed Sheeran's "Shape of you" and Rihanna's "Work".

This is reggae 3.0, bitches!
