Eyes On My Purpose Riddim

My last post from a few days ago showcased Spectacular's new single, "I wish," which comes to us off the Eyes On My Purpose Riddim. Still not sure if this rhythm comes from Irie Ites Records or not, but I'm pretty sure it does, especially considering all these artists on the rhythm are signed to that label.

Check out the Eyes On My Purpose Riddim mix below: Black Warrior starts off with a his track, Warrior, which has a real mean hook. Second is Lutan Fyah with, Cut It Out, and lastly is the man who kills this rhythm, Spectacular, with his new single, I Wish.

The Elusive Talents of Spectacular

Spectacular has been a long time favorite artist of mine. His rich, powerful and energetic voice is an unmistakable one that continues to deliver on every tune I hear from him. The only problem is, is that Spectacular is found on rhythms few and far between, and I believe he only has one album out. The reason, I do not know. I would be all over this guy if I were a producer. He has the capability of murdering any sound.

This video is of Spectacular on the new, "Eyes On My Purpose Riddim." His track is called, I Wish. I believe the rhythm comes from Irie Ites Records.

I think this tune is another perfect example of Spectacular's talents. I hope we get to see more of this guy in the future.

Ifficially The Hottest Riddim This Fall!

I've been hyping up this riddim release for a while now, and finally, a week or so ago, the Ifficial Riddim hit the ground running. With solid performances by just about every artist listed, this is no doubt one of Itation Records' biggest drops. I'll personally put this one right up next to (just below actually) Itation's Higher Meditation Riddim as my favorite release from them. I would have liked to see as many big names on this rhythm as that one had. I think if it did, the two would be in fierce competition for the up-and-coming record label's hottest riddim yet.

This mix below are my favorite tracks on the rhythm: Bescenta, who seldom shows his face, but when he does, he makes sure you know here's there, with "Your Love." Kali Blaxx with "Backyard," which is a song that grows on you for sure. I didn't like it at first, because of Kali's unique, sometimes annoying, voice, but the more you listen to it, the more you find yourself singing it to yourself in yourhead throughout the day. Anthony B comes HUUUGE  on this riddim, straight out of the reggae artist graveyard,  with his track, "Outta Road." Play this tune at any party, see if you don't get everyone dancing.  Lastly, new artist, Monsoon, does well with "Jah." I'm super interested to see some more work from this guy, and see what Itation can do with his talent and voice.

Be sure to rep this rhythm. This comes from one of my favorite production groups, Itation Records. It's always exciting to see what they come out with next. Big up to Tune In Crew as well - they were a huge collab on this rhythm.


Konshens - Showing Us That Versatility is the Key to Success

Konshens is one of my favorite artists today because of his ability to come strong, lyrically and passionately, on any rhythm. The first track is his  new single off the "Feel So Good Riddim," titled, "Who Jah Bless" - a more low key tune, while the second track is a heavier, dancehall/roots song. "Crossfire" is a much more hard-hitting single, where Konshens, as always, comes with a lot of energy. Be sure to keep an ear to the street for this guy as he continues to climb his way to the top of reggae stardom.
