Here is what we found this week.......Enjoy!
Instead of not doing a blog this week we decided to list a bunch of good songs that released. I did not find anything great just good. Maybe this should be the start of an additional playlist? What do you think?
Yoha & The Dragon Tribe "SoulCore"
This new album "Soulcore" from Yoha & The Dragon of France starts off right with the albums first single. The track itself has a great musical intro with changes, then breaks down into it's own musical rhythm. The drum roll drops and brings great harmonies with a beautiful horn medley. Add a classic guitar riff almost solo and you have 'Just To Spread The Roots.' Yoha sings 'we only love the roots.' As a rootsman, what more could you ask for? Can the rest of the album be this good? Roots do continue and as a rootsman a 'Natural Woman' who can 'Give Me The Love' would be ideal. The voice from the 'Roots' side of Yoha comes with 'The Wind Of Change.' It's not only the voice it's the vibe. Maybe the voice brings both. It's 'Reggae Music' that helps me to survive. Roots rockin reggae continues with '25 Years Old.' 'I Bet You Know' is a sexy duet of rootsy Lover's Rock reggae. 'The Roots Of Time' is so good to hear and know that roots music is out there. Please support this and all of it when and where you can.
Sam Gilly & Teacha Dee 'Dub The Comb Away'
A classic reggae track gets a dub version. "Throw Away The Comb' by The Twinkle Brothers gets the dub treatment from Sam Gilly of House of Riddim and Teacha Dee on vocals, what a tune.
Maffio, Kymani Marley, Julian Marley & Jo Mersa Marley 'Blessings'
The medium is a dancehall laced 'Murder She Wrote' type of beat/riddim. The lyrics and vibe are strictly positive with the 'Blessing' and being thankful for what we have. The respective single is a part of the exclusive full-length album of MAFFIO entitled “Eso Es Mental.”
Naaman feat. Cheeko, Marcus Gad, Francis, Volodia, Jahneration, Scars, Brarda 'Load It (We All)'
Naaman brings the world together with artists from all over the world to 'Load It' as 'We All' need it. Heavy on the French side as thats Naaman's homeland. Hearing Marcus Gad like never before. Great track enjoy the vibes.
Various Artists "Ginger Stick riddim"
Ephraam Alves starts the new "Ginger Stick riddim" with 'Again.' It's a colorful description of Carnival when night comes were going to do it til day....again & again. Newcomer Terron is a 'Soca Baby,' just like all his fans and country men. Tish has the catchiest tune for two reasons because the title 'Use Yuh Tongue' and the melody stands out. Jadel has been making good noise. She's talking to the boys when she says she needs them to 'Fix It.' Lastly, College Boy Jesse gets boasy with 'Hold Yuh Gal.' Want to know why just listen here.
