Lila Ike “The Experience”
Recently signed thru In.Digg.Nation and the first release on RCA Records thru the signing, Lila Ike’s debut album & 7 song EP “The Experience” gets the nod. Four singles have released and it’s all over seen by executive producer and Indigg’s main man Protoje. This is great because it’s not produced or overseen by the major record label. It’s all done in Jamaica by reggae's top progressive producers. What a great look & sound for everyone. Lila is quoted as saying “It’s a beatiful time to release this kind of music from Jamaica, we are showing people there is no linear way of anything.”  The music is a mix of styles influenced by reggae yet does not define the sound. There's so much there and doesn't feel or sound out of place. She naturally gets soulful and that track would be ‘Forget Me,’ sweet & jazzy on ‘Stars Align’ and ‘I Spy’ has a reggaeton vibe. My favorites are the two straightforward reggae tracks. Interestingly, they both are on new takes of ok'd tracks: Dennis Brown’s ’Promise Land’ and Sly & Robbie’s ‘Baltimore.’ The songs are ‘Second Chance’ and ‘Thy Will. There’s also r&b, hip hop and trap. Lila’s greatest attributes are her ability to freestyle & sing in the same breath, her angel like voice, cutting edge lyrics and her witty play and takes on utilising her manipulation of the track and timing . She’s already a favorite of the ladies and feared by the men. “The Experience” is of her and ‘showing my versatility and different tones, values and vibes of a woman.’
