NEW REGGAE RELEASES
Big Ganja Bizness Riddim
Nice new riddim called Big Ganja Bizness. Looks like all tunes are about the Ganja Bizness. The title track is from King Mas. Gappy Ranks has a nice one too called "Breakfast.' RSNY uses the Ronnie Thwaites melody from 'Mr Luxury' also made popular by The Born Jamericans. Bobby is always on the Hustle so he knows about 'Stay High on the Low.' Also on the riddim is Mighty Mystic, JahDan BlakkaMore & Chino.
Etana - 'My Man'
Songstress & strong one for the ladies, Etana, returns with one for her man or shall we say 'My Man.' The lyrics about her 'Man' are special because he's special, music is nice & the melody is great. One for the men form the Lady of the moment.
7 Chakra Riddim
Lastly, the 7 Chakra riddim drops. It has Luciano, Horace Andy, and Ras Zacharri & Lutan Fyah team up on one called 'With Jah We Stand.' All this talent & the lesser known talent shines with his ability to manipulate the words in a sweet melody that make it the stand out cut. Just listen to how Zacharri takes it to them on the chorus and says 'with Jah we stand.'
NEW DANCEHALL MUSIC
11 Eleven Riddim
11 Eleven Riddim has dropped with two bad tune pon di riddim. The Big Man Popcaan has a very encouraging song 'ghetto youths don't let them hold you back, Gwaan Out Deh' with a special short feature from rising Versatile. Vanessa Bling a beat dem bad with 'I Love My Life,' and why shouldn't she? Everyone's in control of their emotions so take charge and 'nah give it up.'
NEW SOCA RELEASES
Popcaan - 'Way Up'
Popcaan's 'Way Up' has been remixed into soca and I actually like it better in soca. What do you think?
