NEW REGGAE RELEASES
King Kong - 'In The Old Capital'
One of reggae's kings has returned with a nice EP called 'In The Old Capital.' It's the 'Old Time Gorilla' and he's always ready to 'Work.' This 'King On The Throne' is the Kong and as he says 'Cyaan Break Me.' Gwaan!!
Shawn Antoine - 'Conversation'
Frankie Music releases new music from Shawn Antoine. Leading up to the release of his full album, Neo-Reggae-Soul artist Shawn Antoine let's us in on the "Conversation". Lover's rock feel with a touch of R&B, which is true Lover's Rock reggae, we've been blessed with 3 new tracks and I am feeling the one track they are not pushing, 'Missing You.'
Publik Report feat. Freddie McGregor & Gentleman - 'Babylon Have The Nerve'
Publik Report gives it to Babylon about the herb in 'Babylon Have The Nerve, with the help of Freddie McGregor & Gentleman.
Mystery P - 'I Love You'
Who is Mystery P? I have no idea. She has a nice love song called simply 'I Love You' and that's all that matters. To put it into musical context, she has a vibe similar to the Queen, Queen Ifrica, if that helps.
NEW DANCEHALL RELEASES
Chicken And Dumplin Riddim
Walshy Fire & Kubyashi present the new juggling dancehall riddim 'Chicken & Dumplin' with an all star cast Sean Paul, Shaggy, Leftside, Bunji Garlin, Denzel White & Skinny Fabulous. There's potential in crossover success with songs like 'Fat Piece,' 'Lock N Key' & 'Party Time' as well as crossong & merging dancehall & soca with the vibe of the riddim & the artists on the riddim.
NEW SOCA RELEASES
Love Bug Riddim
The new bad riddim out of the soca world right now is 'Love Bug.' Patrice Roberts & Pternsky do it two weeks in a row by making Shok Wave blog. My favorite soca artist does it with 'All Of It,' while soca's neweest sensation & Vybz Kartel sound alike just a pitch higher, returns with 'Dey We Gone.' The original Problem Child is just that on the track 'For Forever' with his clever lyrics and then there's new artist Terron the Artist. Boom Bam Big ridden.
