It's ALL reggae this week
Charly Black has really stepped up his game, kinda reminds me of Busy Signal and when he started singjaying too. Here's a new reggae song with a positive message.
The Cali & Collie big up the herb & reggae music 'Everywhere We Go.'
Green Lion Crew release the EP from Mr Williamz called 'The General Comes To Town.' The album features 5 tracks & 5 dubs. The dubs feature Adidis Pablo, Lone Ranger, Dean Fraser, Tony Greene & Horsemouth while the songs feature Joe Lickshot on several intros, Pinchers, Gappy Ranks and on the single 'Bad Boy Business' he sounds like the Don Dadda Supercat. Straight 80's style.
Jah Cure returns with giving a youth by the name of Mikki Ras a bligh on the track 'Rude Bwoy Skankin!' Jah Cure sounds great.
The Green return with their best album yet called 'Marching Orders.' The album features Busy Signal on the title track & lead single. It also features J Boog on my favorite 'Mama Roots,' Eric Rachmany from Rebelution on 'Good Feeling,' Fiji & The Mana'O Company. The other top track is 'So Cool.' There might be bigger hits on other albums, no other is more root'ed !!!! & solid.
Living Legend Prince Alla releases 'Stand Firm' on the 'I Mean It' riddim.
Canada's The Phonosonics release a reggae version of 'I Put A Spell On You' for Halloween.' Anything this group is good.
A new riddim called 'Body & Soul' has released with great fanfare. The whole riddim is solid from Notis Heavyweight Rockaz & they have been stepping up their game.My favorites are from Javada, Notis & friends, Nattali Rize, D Major Craigy T & Kenny Smith. All are good though.
