  1. Why Tessanne matters

    We need a breakout Reggae superstar in a bad way. Records sales are down across the board regardless of genre. While Pop, Country, Rock and Hip Hop can sustain the drop in sales Reggae cannot if we wish to remain viable internationally. We have had several artist with potential crossover appeal but none that lasted or was able to build a core fan base. The Marleys remain an international entity but outside of Junior Gong they are more a tale of the good old days rather than blasting new trails and ...

  2. Dancehall's Arrested Development

    It was the summer of 2011 when the fiery debates reached a crescendo regarding the deleterious impact both locally and internationally the antics of DJ Vybz Kartel on Dancehall music. The ferocious attacks were coming from all fronts and nothing was off limits including his business practices and ventures, personal choices, wardrobe and complexion chemistry, just to name a few.

  4. Back To Basics Riddim

    Review:
    Star Kutt Records takes dancehall back to basics (well, if basics was eight years ago) with a riddim called, you’d never guess, Back To Basics. Highly reminescent of Dave Kelly’s Fiesta Riddim which featured Beenie Man hit Dude (appropriately enough, off Beenie Man’s own album titled Back To Basics), the production is solidly satisfying (although if this was 2003, fans of hardcore would probably be rioting down the place bout “it too jiggy”). Of the seven artists on the riddim so ...

  5. Darkness Riddim

    Review:
    Just in time for Halloween, Claim Records and Gutty Bling released Darkness Riddim over the weekend. The riddim sounds like it was inspired by di Genius in his Dark Trilogy phase and attempts to capture the same ominous feel, but it doesn’t really work.
