Here is what we found this week.......Enjoy!
Wixard & Walshy Fire have released two holiday dancehall styled songs on the Xmas riddim. The first from Lybran with an appropriate message 'Be Careful' yet done in a comical, almost hypocritical way.
Well the new name is 'Sokah' and it's coming from the branch of the root of Soca. Nailah Blackman's new song and she's the daughter of the inventor of Soca : Ras Shorty Blackman.
Nailah Blackman - Sokah
Macka Diamond has a new soca hit 'Caribbean Wine.' It represents all the Caribbean.
Macka Diamond - Carribean Wine
Living Legend Ken Booth releases 'Inna De Yard.' It's most of his classic hits in a striped down, acoustic style of the originals, right along the 'Inna De Yard' style of the series.

Ken Booth - Speak softly love
Inna de Yard - Let the Water Run Dry Feat. Ken Booth
DI JUGGLIN VOLUME 1 is a compilation riddim album. The riddim sounds just like the lick over version from the 1990's by Penthouse Records called 'Tempted To Touch' on the compilation called Good Fellas. The original name is 'A Love I can Feel.' Top cuts for me come from Kristine Alicia, Mr Vegas & Delly Ranx while Joanna Marie & Galaxy P have a nice tune too. Here, you make the call.

I wouldn't necessarily call this a reggae album. Reggae is the closest thing I can categorize to the styles I know.
'Keep One Eye Open' as this new talent known as Honey Larochelle will be her own 'Boss' & 'Party Everyday Like It's Saturday.' She's 'Serious' talent that's doing the lighter side of reggae & pop. Her best reggae sounding song is a real story to be heard called 'Actor.' It's not even her best song.
