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?


Mystic Revealers "Jah Jah People"
Mystic Revealers return with a new album. Guided by Jah with Billy Mystic fronting the band and sings lead, plays guitar. His voice is still smooth. The album opens with the song 'Are You Ready?' Asking the Rasta man chant are you ready to trod out of babylon are you ready for a revolution?' At this point most of s our ready for a revolution. 'Blue Nile' is about judgement. Judgement day is mentioned again in 'Business Man.' The strong lyrics of 'mothers die, babies cry, there is no food to eat, no clothes to wear and the feet are bare, children sleeping in the street., you say you sacrifice for a better life, somebody got to pay......Mr. Business Man it's what you do to get richer every day.' Many will feel it in the song. There's another voice on 'Got To Get Away,' that's the voice of which immediately catches your ear. The first single, upbeat track is one of the albums best 'Jah Jah People.' It's an anthem, it's lyrically strong with a nice melody. 'Jah Jah People dont' study no evil cause terrible is the price you will have to pay So Jah Jah People just try to keep it simple, cleans hands and pure in heart will be the only way,' the way of the Rasta man. Our next song 'Just Can't Deny It' clearly has a different vibe you just can't deny it. A good mellow vibe with a wicked bassline. 'I know that Jah is real, it's something I can feel deep inside of me I Just Can't Deny It.' One of our favorites. We all know what a kiss can do and it is expressed quite well in 'Kiss For Me' and a true love song. 'Remember The Days' has a similar feel and is a love song as well. In life 'Many Are Called' unfortunately the chosen are few. This song reminds us of the ideologies and rasta themes this album is filled with. Some forgotten so it's a nice melodic reminder. Billy Mystic is no stranger of 'Sitting On The Beach.' This is where he literally lives and he does the song in a nyabinghi style while playing his guitar 'Sitting On The Beach.' Remember 'There's A Place' and a time for Jah Jah righteous people, filled with only love and joy lift up your voice and let their works be heard. 'You'll Never Know' unless you try and Jah will never give you more than you can bare. Make it a mission to be the best that you can be, take it on yourself to fulfill your wholly destiny and dont let vanity steal your soul away. Another reminder, are you happy with your works in life. There's always still time to change. Jah Jah People it's the works that you have done that you will be remembered. 
Lila Ike 'Wanted'
A roots reggae track that has a real nice feel and vibe to it. Not atypical of Lila, it's nice to hear here in this realm. Maybe it's because of the production from J-Vibe, either way it sounds real nice. A tune that talks 'momma your son is wanted.'
Khalia & Dre Island 'Wild Fire'
An uptempo reggae love song called 'Wild Fire' produced by Tony "CD" Kelly and samples the classic 'Officially' from Lloyd Parks. They sing about the power of love


Romain Virgo 'Good Woman'
Still one of Jamaica's best byproducts, Romain Virgo remains one of reggae's best talented singers. His latest is a little different in it's musical stylings as dancehall is the medium. The message remains positive and his upliftment of the 'Good Woman' in his life....his wife. Its a memoir to all the 'Good Woman' out there.
