One Fi Di Lovers

The brand new Karma Riddim, guaranteed to set the mood for all of you with spring fever. Another from the Unity Sound studio - the order of the tracks are Voicemail with "Time," Higher Tone with "More," Jah Cure with "You Don't Understand Love," and finally a schmoood track from I-Octane, "Mama You Alone."

Indiscretions Riddim

I take back what I said earlier about the Indiscretions riddim and Jah Cure. After listening to the Jah Cure tune a few times, I've grown to like it, I admit it..

As far as the Indiscretions riddim, straight fire. When I first heard it, I didn't like it; I thought it sounded too pop-ish. Upon further review though, I withdraw my initial impression. The riddim was made by JukeBoxx, who also produced the Nylon Riddim, so these guy definitely have some talent for sure. Below are my two favorite tracks off the rhythm, "Stay Like Bees" by Assassin--who I've really been getting into these days--and "Missing You" by Busy Signal.

Is Jah Cure Selling Out?

A lot of the new shit I've heard from Jah Cure is really "over-produced." It sounds a lot more like pop, and a lot less like the modern roots/culture vibes that have made him so popular. The song below, "Searching," on the Indiscretions riddim is alright, but you forget it's supposed to be reggae. I don't know what he's trying to do, but I don't like it. I wanna see more Jah Cure like from Freedom Blues and True Reflections. I was psyched when I heard his track on the new Changes riddim; I had high hopes for the Cure in 2009, but then I heard this and it killed all of my expectations..

Nickel B Interview - April 6.2009

Be sure to check out my interview with Nickel B of Itation Sound/Records below. If you got some time to check out the whole interview, the guy definitely has a lot of insightful and intelligent things to say about not only his career as a DJ and the journey of Itation Sound from a sound system to a record company, but also nuff words of wisdom about the past and future of Reggae music as well as the teachings of Rastafari. Thanks again to Nickel B for sitting down with me last night - It's always nice to see someone who's found success still care enough to take time out of his schedule to give thanks to fans. ONE LOVE

Delly Ranx to Drop NEW Album Summer '09

Artist and producer Delly Ranx, in collaboration with Itation Records, is set to drop his second album this summer. The project is titled, "Good Profile." Delly has made huge strides over his career as mainly a dancehall artist, with an occasional roots hit here and there, and also as a successful producer. His next album is just wrapping up production with Itation out of California, and I expect nothing but greatness from these two.
