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?
Through The Roots feat Busy Signal 'Refund'
If you base your relationship on material things than expect a 'Refund.' TTR wants his love back...all of it. It's done on a King Jammy's 80 styled dancehall riddim and then add Busy Signal, this is the best reggae song TTR has done.
Ras Attitude 'I Adore You'
Life changes affect everything in your life. It looks like Attitude, out of the US Virgin Islands, has found his woman and has hi child with her. His new single 'I Adore You' exemplifies his woman. We are hearing an Attitude we have never heard. Reaching places with his voice that have never been reached. Love the vibe.
This is the father of Chronixx called Chronicle. He influenced Chronixx to do music and his name, notice the similarity. Chronicle does digital dancehall. This EP "Suzy" is 80's style dancehall even though his popularity was in the 90's. The EP starts with the title and best song. About his 'Suzy,' fills us in that 'Suzy' can have whatever she wants. Chronicle was a big dubplate artist and 'Murder A Soundboy' is in that vein. 'Real Woman' is a classic King Jammys dancehall riddim with help from Azrock. 'Ganja Man Riddim' is the last song in a dub style with 'Ganja Man' lyrics and sound affects. The dub tracks continue backwards as is the dub for 'Real Woman' in 'Nosferatu Dub' and 'Suzy' ends the ep with the riddim. Patate records is the produceer behind the ep and this is their style so if you like the sound chexck them out.
One Culture & Mellodose 'Otherside'
An interesting record that stands out. It starts out like a an electric rock tune. The drums come in not hard and hard to explain then breaks into reggae. Then breaks down into an acoustic track and back to the reggae. Different and that is what we like. They are trying to take take it to the 'otherside' and improve who they are to 'make a better version of themselves. After all this they have 'found their way to the otherside.' It's One Culture & Mellodose making happen.
