Major Lazer & Jah Dan


This is my favorite track off Major Lazer's new album, "Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do." This is Jah Dan with "Cash Flow."

I recently just saw Jah Dan perform at Club Metronome in Burlington, VT. He sticks mostly to Dub Step and Dancehall, but there's no doubt that this track above highlights his abilities to deliver strong on any reggae or roots rhythm. I wish he would stick to more of this kind of vibe...

Re-Release of The Meditation Session!



For all you local Burlingtonian's following, you can now pick up the re-release of Rudeboy Reggae's Fall '09 mix - The Meditation Session, Volume One. Cut with new tracks and edited in key, the re-release stands in hopes of making up for the lack of my annual summer mix that I unfortunately ran out of time for this year.

Be sure to swing by Ridin' High skateshop on the corner of Battery Street and Pearl, Burlington VT, to pick up your copy today. Also keep an ear to ground for a winter mix release this year from Rudeboy.

RiddimTube


Introducing the easiest way to get a hold of the hottest and most up-to-date rhythms in both reggae and dancehall: http://www.riddimtube.com. It's like YouTube, but strictly dedicated to reggae and dancehall videos and music. Check it out.

The Latest From Tarrus


My all-time favorite artist -- yes, that's right, I said ALL-TIME -- Tarrus Riley is back with a new roots track on the Rebellion Riddim titled, "Poverty Nuh Inna Fashion."I cannot get enough Tarrus innah mi life! While I do prefer his modern-roots music, he is a very versatile artist and will dominate any rhythm, whether it be roots, modern-roots, dancehall, hip-hop roots, etc.




Below is a mix from BMC that I just came accross. I haven't listened to it yet, so I don't know how good the quality is, but it's titled "Tarrus Riley & Friends," so if you don't know much about the man, this mix is a  MUST LISTEN. On it is every single one of his hits...

Introducting: Ras Penco


Hailing from Riversdale, St. Cathrine, Ras Penco has recently been stirring up some commotion with his new chart-topping single, "Thousand Miles." With his debut album due out soon, Ras Penco has also released two other singles: "Be By My Side" and "Most High." While the latter is more of a dancehall-roots track, the first two singles are more along the lines of catchy, almost popp-ish tunes, but still very good nonetheless.

"THOUSAND MILES":



"MOST HIGH":



"BE BY MY SIDE":

Another From Gyptian


Gyptian's track, "She's My Lady," on the new Slaata Riddim, is another smooth, low-key tune from the vocally gifted Jamaican artist. Making himself busy these days, with the recent release of his third album, "Hold You," Gyptian delivers strong on this new tune:
