Wow! That pretty much sums up this EP. Its been an honor and pleasure at Rudeboy Reggae to be involved with the launching of this debut project "Dubstop EP" for Hawaii artist Eli-Mac. With production by Live Animaux (Leslie Ludiazo - J-Boog & JP Kennedy - The Green) the high caliber sounds out of the gates are no surprise. Easily one of the most diverse yet well put together compilation of music for an EP I have heard in a while, maybe even ever for a female reggae artist. Am I biased? Who cares. Listen to this album and you'll see what Im talking about. Pretty crazy that just about every single song off the EP has already been in rotation on Hawaii radio. Mad respect to Eli-Mac!!! Cant wait to see what the future has in store for this quickly rising female solo artist. Make sure to buy your copy on iTunes and check her out on The Collision Tour with The Green & J-Boog starting next month. Dates can be found at elimacofficial.com.

Is it possible to ever go wrong with the music of Groundation? Of course not. I consider Groundation as not only one of the pioneer American reggae acts but also one of the most consistent reggae bands of our generation. Not one album or show have I ever been disappointed and I think that is quite the testament to the musical legacy of Groundation. The new project, A Miracle, has everything we've come to expect from Groundation's music and a listen through the album will certainly leave you better off then you were before listening to it. Big ups to these guys for always coming through! Make sure to buy on iTunes & support the movement. Respect!

Cool episode of the Vice series, Noisey Jamaica, titled "The Reggae Revival" that features Chronixx and Protoje. Very interesting to hear about reggaes place in the contemporary music scape of Jamaica and what artists are doing to keep the music alive. Check it!

Legendary lead vocalist Ali Campbell of UB40 has reunited with Astro & Mickey to drop a full length album, Silhouette. One of the biggest reggae stars of the time, this album certainly live up to the expectations. The three songs above are some of my now all time favorite UB40 songs to add to the collection of jams from these guys. Make sure to purchase your copy on iTunes & enjoy the UB40 legacy! Respect
