Jahdan Blakkamoore, “All Comes Back to One”

22 Nov

Jahdan Blakkamoore captures the element of community in his new video for the single “All Comes Back to One”, a mellow track from his new album Babylon Nightmare coming out December 7th. It’s is a feel good moment: summer time in Brooklyn, a bunch of homies hanging out (aka Matt Shadetek of Dutty Artz, 77 Klash) and kids vibing in a playground with the brightly clad Blakkamoore. Summer should last forever (which is why I’ll probably never leave the Caribbean.)

Showa Eski Riddim

13 Nov

Natalie Storm says “Yum Yum!” because she eating Boys for Breakfast in her new track with the same name on the Prodigal Entertainment produced Showa Eski riddim. Storm exudes a rebel persona in her music that would lead one to believe that if there were a punk scene in Jamaica, she would be the unofficial spokeswoman. The riddim, which stirred up a craze after the release of “It’s Wiley” track with grime artiste Wiley, also features tunes from Stein, Rage, Lady Chann and Ward 21 and was released digitally this week. The Stein and Rage serve a supple helping of slackness– not for the listener who prefers to keep their ears unsullied– while Lady Chann gives her Brit-Jamaican edge to the genre-crossing beat and Ward 21 pays tribute to bump and grind.

Get the tracks now on Juno.

Oh the slackness. Wow.

Wildlife! ft Terry Lynn, “Nocturnal World”

Jamaican house/electro artiste Terry Lynn just finished touring with Swiss producer Wildlife! and Tricky last month in a short circulation through England and while the artiste is expecting to drop her second full length early in the new year, her collaborator Wildlife! is releasing his new EP “BuckUp” on the 22nd of November. Wildlife!’s “BuckUp” will feature tracks with Lynn, Major Mackeral and Sammy Dread with a series of remixes by mastermixers Douster and L-Vis 1990. The new single from the album called “Nocturnal World” featuring Lynn dropped earlier this week giving a preview of a more emotionally focused Lynn over the spacey Wildlife! production.

NYC-2-Africa Riddim

12 Nov

In a transnational collaboration of African, Jamaican and New York artistes, a riddim from NYC label Subatomic Sound, Peoples Records and African Hip Hop label Nomadic Wax called NYC-2-AFRICA dropped digitally earlier this week.

The riddim features tracks from Anthony B, Jahdan Blakkamoore and Bajah of Dry Eye Crew out of Sierra Leone, Africa. NYC-2-AFRICA, which was released just before the irruption into Tivoli Gardens last May, has a hollow drumming of a beat with a dubstep throwback and a political theme that exercises the rowdy lyricism of the triad. Hear the full riddim below or on the label’s Soundcloud (which includes a free download) and purchase it over at Itunes or Amazon.
