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?


Rekall feat. Deliman  'Changes Gonna Come'
Austria's and even more specifically Vienna's two best reggae artists team up on this tune that could very well turn into an anthem for the world's situation. The chorus on this is murder. Big tune so tune eeeeeennnnn........seen


Various Artists "One World riddim"
A nice, new riddim courtesy of Selecta 7 Sound & Loud City witha little bit of a different sound. Modern roots reggae with top cuts coming from Medisun who named the riddim in 'One World.' Keznamdi's 'Super Woman' is everyone's mother. The other top track is Lutan Fyah's 'Without Jah.' All songs are good with a great line up of artists: Marla Brown, Perfect, Anthony B & Delly Ranks.

Popcaan, Zamunda & Dre Island 'Jah Love'

Afrodizia with Chico Cesar & Yong Mbazo  'Mand'ela'

SOJA 'Stop That Train'

Rapha Pico & Nga Han  'Haile Selassie '




Dubtown Rockers feat Miles of Slightly Stoopid & Jackson of the Elovaters  'On A Sunday'


The Mighty Mighty Bosstones feat. Aimee Interrupter, Tim Timebomb, Angelo Moore & Stranger Cole  'The Final Parade'
What a great song! Just wondering if this is the end or just the beginning of another chapter (hopefully the later). Great guest line up in front lady for The Interrupters, the legend Tim Timebomb, Fishbone's certified mad man Angelo Moore & the living ska pioneer out of Jamaica Stranger Cole. They pick it up by playing around with that punk rock reggae sound. They were skanking for a longtime. 'The Final Parade' has to be the longest ska song ever, thank Jah it's good.


Rafael Cardoso  'Iluminado Amor'
Maluma   "7 Days In Jamaica"
As one of the world's favorite Latin artist, Maluma is doing what should have been done a long time ago. Reggaeton is basically started after the 'Dem Bow' song by Shabba Ranks. Since then the difference between reggaeton & reggae have clearly been established. In the beginning, it was not like that. People got them confused. The album starts with 'Tonika' with reggae's biggest name in Ziggy Marley. The song is basically a reggaeton song with a bit of a dancehall vibe. The last minute goes into a straight reggae song, which we love. Then, the Latin world's favorite dancehall artist, Charly Black joins on 'Love.' Similar to the first song, the difference is its a bit smoother, has a great melody, the duo kill it and give it more of a reggae vibe throughout the whole song. One of reggaeton's biggest songs and first major hit was El General's 'Tu Pum Pum.' The famous line out of that song is 'levante su mano te gusta chocolate.' Maluma capitalizes on that theme with the reggaeton tune 'Chocolate.' If there was a title track it would be 'Agua De Jamaica.' A sexy reggaeton track showing what Maluma does best. 'Desayun-Arte' it similar yet it has a light hip hop/dancehall feel. I love the play on words in the title, as if breakfast was an art because desayuno means breakfast. We just realized that the videos are a visual story of his trip to Jamaica and all filmed on location. 'La Burbuja' epitomises Jamaica best. It ends with danger and a straight reggaeton tune called 'Peligrosa." Our favorite songs are the first two. Now you decide.
Suku Castro  'Dj Put The Soca'
A great combination of English/Spanish with reggae/ragga soca. Cutting edge type of tune breaking new ground. Good tune good vibes. Hope we see more
