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.

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.

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

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!
