What better way to kick off the summer than with Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Pitbull, Jason Derulo and Shaggy? Yes that’s right the summer has begun and the concerts are popping up all over the United States with some of the ‘hottest’ artists for the summer and our dancehall/reggae icon Shaggy is on the line up with them all.

This past weekend Shaggy headlined two major concerts. On Saturday he was in Las Vegas, Nevada at the iHeart Radio Pool Party held at the Caesars Palace. Hosted by Nick Jonas, the concert, which was streamed live, featured some of music’s biggest stars including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, David Guetta and Shaggy. Shaggy served the crowd with hits after hits on the outdoor stage. Opening with one of his many classics “Boombastic” the crowd was thrilled.

“When Shaggy hit that stage the party got started, he has the perfect songs for any party especially a pool party” says Megan Wickerman of Detroit.

Shaggy served an electrifying performance and dug into his vast catalog with “It Wasn’t Me”, and “Angel”, which he performed with Rayvon, and his brand new hit sing ‘I Need Your Love’ which thrilled the bikini clad crowd.

It was now off to New York for the KTU Phoria concert held by KTU 103.5 FM at Nikon Jones Beach Theatre, Long Island New York. Filled with several thousand fans ready to see Shaggy, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson and Jason Derulo just to name a few, rain was not going to stop this party. With the long cold winter that New York experienced, Shaggy was adamant that he was ready to bring the heat. Supported by his DJ Kue and Rayvon, Shaggy walked on stage to a warm warm welcome and ignited the crowd with his new single ‘I Need Your Love’. Drowned out by the audience singing the chorus it was evident that this billboard hit single is a staple for the summer clubs and concerts.

Shaggy who recently returned from his Austarlian tour, has a jam pact summer schedule. His next concert will be on June 6 at Xfinity Center, in Mansfield Massachusetts, where he headlines JAM’N 94.5 Summer Jam with Trey Songz, Natalie LaRose, Fetty Wap and Jordin Sparks just to name a few.

Legendary International Reggae Crooner Sanchez Wants his Voice to be Heard “In The Ghetto” – @godmumma

CultureLatest Music

A staple for over the past two decades on the international music scene, Sanchez (Kevin Jackson) epitomizes the genre of Lover’s rock by having covered some of the most romantic songs of all time as well as his own classic lyrics, fusing reggae and R&B. For years Sanchez music as stood the test of time and music lovers were serenaded to an arsenal of hits after hits which led him to the billboard charts. Besides numerous awards and accolades, it was almost a year ago to the date that the city of Miramar in Florida took the time out to honor and recognize him for his contribution to reggae music and his career accomplishments, May 17th, 2014 was officially proclaimed as Sanchez Day in the City of Miramar.

For the past few years the international reggae crooner has been delivering music sporadically, as well as a critically acclaimed album, but on his latest single titled “In The Ghetto”, Sanchez wants his voice to be heard. The song is a departure from his usual romantic themes as Sanchez belts the familiar words “People, don’t you understand the child needs a helping hand or he’ll grow to be an angry young man some day Take a look at you and me, are we too blind to see, do we simply turn our heads and look the other way”. Speaking of this latest endeavor, Sanchez explained “Every day I hear the news from home to abroad, and it seems like another person died in vain, so many angry people. I am hurting for humanity and the best way for me as a singer to have my say, is with my voice, with lyrics.”, he further added “I grew up listening to this song, I even won an award and a standing ovation in school with my rendition. So when I received the riddim, the words came back to me, It made sense, a hurt child becomes an angry adult, and more often enough society turns a blind eye, especially IN THE GHETTO”.

The single produced by Triple T Production will be available on all major digital markets by the end of the month. Triple T Production is ​responsible for some of ​acclaimed music from Natural Black, Luciano, Turbulence, among others.

Dancehall Artist Future Fambo Signs Deal With US Based Label

Latest MusicMediaNews

he key to success for any entertainer is reinvention and quality music. Although music taste is subjective, the common thread of quality will always succeed albeit be a commercial hit or not. That train of thoughts is what Future Fambo claims for the new year. Evolve and Rebirth!

Since his entry in the musical scene, Future Fambo scored various hits such as the chart-topper Kung Fu and remained constant through the years while connecting with newer generations through positive songs and party anthems Drunken Dance, Rum and Red Bull featuring Grammy award winner Beenie Man and This Life among many others. But to fans of the artist and music lovers it seemed as if Fambo took a musical hiatus.

“Well I have been touring extensively in the states and other countries around the world both independently and also with the King Beenie Man. I may have been out of sight in Jamaica but I have been working on my craft and image while out of the Jamaican Diaspora. This is a new me physically, mentally and creatively, I have been recording for top local producers such as Seanizzle, UIM, Richieloops and also a few upcoming overseas producers. The foundations has been set so now its time to step out and make the moves and get the movement up and running. I am also happy to tell my fans that I have also recently signed a 1 album deal with american based indie label “Blaze Entertainment Records Inc” which is a big deal for me because this is my first ever album, so you will definitely be seeing more of #BrandFambo in the mix.” stated the reggae/dancehall star.

Signing an album deal is a great feat for any artist, but for Future Fambo a veteran of music, this concurrence will be his first studio length album. In a statement to the media, Blaze Entertainment CEO explained the decision to work with Fambo “In this day and age of music its all about the unexpected to be the expected. Fambo voice is like non other and for years it has been one of the best kept secret on a global scale not just dancehall. Yes he has hits under his belt but with such a voice and likable spirit and energetic stage presence, all he need is that guidance to turn him into a legitimate global star/icon/legend. I said to myself, Fambo has so many songs out and has had so many hits and has never produced a EP, mixtape or a album so I decided to approach him with the idea of a joint venture. It took us 3 years to actually get to really sit and have a man to man convo about business and just lifestyles and struggles and it was basically a wrap after that. As for the album this its a new Fambo, no more drunkingmaster image, no more playing around this is a more mature, grown and sexy type image for ladies want him and fellas want to be him. Swag and everything way up. His sound is revamped, his entire style is revamped I guess we can officially say a full fledged make over. The album features Jamaican producer, richie loops, american producer Magnedo7- produced for Eminem, Jay Z, 50cent and many more, also american producer Blahzae and many more. It is slated to be release sometime in April we are still figuring out dates. But the singles are def about to start picking up steam. “Bloodclaute Song & One more Time”

2 lead tracks were recently released in anticipation of the album, “Bloodclaute Song” for the streets, and “One More Time” a friendly radio hit. The feedback has been very positive both locally and internationally and will garner a video to be shot on location in New York while Fambo is there headlining the “Be True, Be You” benefit concert.

“It is one of my greatest inspirations to know that I am from the same parish as greats like Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Shabba Ranks. I aspire to leave a legacy as they
did.”

While the musical fans recognize Future Fambo as Mr. Rum & Redbull, the man born as Warren Gladstone Williams, is extremely proud of the fact that he hails from the “Garden Parish” of St. Ann, along with some of the most iconic legends of Jamaican culture. Growing up his talent shined immediately, by the age of eight a young Future Troubles (as his was known) began performing for local meetings. By his teen years vocal talent gave way to physical and saw him as a member of the dance group “Crazy Boys”. As childhood passion gave way to a viable livelihood, Future Troubles evolved into Future Fambo turning his hobby into a career.

From his first hit “Iya Iya Hoo” (fashioned after a Jackie Chan movie), Future Fambo realized his knack for creating that perfect high energy song that’s easy to grasp yet exciting enough to incorporate dancing. This combination has made Future Fambo one of the few sustainable Dancehall acts over the last few decades. 2010 saw a groundbreaking revitalization within the grasp of Dancehall, one particular riddim and song tapped into that energy. Fambo’s mega crossover hit “Rum and Redbull” featuring Beenie Man, produced by Seanizzle. Future Fambo was able to keep the party flowing with follow up singles like “Wedding Crasher” (w/ Sean Paul), “Faded”, “Drunken Dance” and “Swaggin” (featuring Wayne Marshall & Tifa). While Fambo has worked or collaborated with just about everyone in the Dancehall genre from producers to artist, his creativity and seasoned artistry affords him many opportunities to create with a variety of production houses to date. Recent releases include singles from Seanizzle, Kapa Shanti and UIM Records.

In August 2014, Fambo inked a deal with US based label, “Blaze Entertainment Records”, which has set out to produce and release Future Fambo’s debut album “Evolve – The Uprise”. Through Blaze Ent, Fambo’s album will see production from Grammy winning producer Magnedo 7, Richie Loops, Blahzae, Stylez and Sisco Kennedy. While the album awaits an official 2015 release date, it’s receiving rave reviews from industry tastemakers such as Atlantic Records own Mike Keran and Dancehall gatekeepers. Premiere singles “Bloodclaute Song” and “One More Time” will mark the promotional launch for “Evolve – The Uprise”. So if “Rum and Redbull” is Future Fambo’s current legacy, just sit back and have one more as he journeys to legendary.

Top Riddims of 2014

Latest MusicMediaNews

COMPARED to recent years, there was no flood of hit ‘riddims’ in 2014.

There were some standouts though. The top five beats were Wul Dem, Happy Hour, Rising Sun, Good Book and Igloo. Produced by disc jockey Katrina ‘DJ Sunshine’ Irons, the Wul Dem was so huge, it spawned a follow-up called Wul Dem Again.

Featured on the Wul Dem are What a Way We Shatting by IOctane, Wul De Claffy Dem by Alkaline and Duh Weh Yuh Waan by Mavado. Wul Dem Again is driven by the popular Box Lunch by Vybz Kartel, Fool Fool Gangsta (Demarco) and Violate (Bryka).

It was a good year for Jordan McClure and David Hale, the team behind Chimney Records. They enjoyed radio and chart action with two projects: Rising Sun and Happy Hour.

Rising Sun was released in late 2013, but did not take off until this year with hits including My Day by Tarrus Riley, Anything’s Possible (Tessanne Chin), Mi Alright (Kabaka Pyramid and Chronixx), My Destination (Zagga) and Better Way (Jah Cure).

Happy Hour featured Kartel’s Mi Nuh Trust People, Free Up (Tarrus Riley and Zagga), Bagga Tings (Alkaline); and Bad Mind People (Beenie Man). Michael ‘ZJ Liquid’ Brissett rode high with Good Book, his most successful production since 2004’s French Vanilla.

Demarco’s chart-topper of the same name was the Good Book’s biggest hit. Delly Ranx (Silly Billy) and Aidonia’s Wuk Off Yuh Gal also did well for the Liquid beat.

Producer Elvis Redwood’s So Unique Records got a lift thanks to the Igloo which enjoyed strong rotation with Vybz Kartel’s You Want Me, Money (Konshens), Family First (I-Octane) and I See the Light by Kip Rich.

ArtistsDancehallLatest MusicMediaNews

VPAL, VP Records’ subsidiary label  teams up with Lady Saw’s label Diva Records to release her new album Alter Ego, available  from November 18, 2014. The Queen of Dancehall is celebrating 25 years in the business with Alter Ego.

The album puts her creativity on full display and showcases both the racy side of “Lady Saw” and the more subdued side of “Marion Hall.” The album features collaborations with Beres Hammond, Estelle, Ali Campbell ofUB40 and Flo-Rida. Judging by her latest singles, “Hoping” and “Me & Mi X”, Lady Saw is adding some extra sizzle to the holiday season and posed to ignite the charts. The Queen is back and she means business.

Lady Saw is a musical pioneer. She is the first female Jamaican artist to win a Grammy, certify as a triple-platinum artist and headline dancehall shows outside her native country. Born Marion Hall in Galina (parish ofSaint Mary), she started her career on local sound systems like many artists on the island. As a female artist in a male-dominated world ofJamaican dancehall reggae, Lady Saw defeated all odds when she went on to top the Jamaican charts with “Find a Good Man.” In 1999, she had a major hit in the United States with “Smile,” recorded with Vitamin C, which peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.

It’s not all MAGIC! on Canadian reggae scene

ArtistsCultureDancehallInterviewsLatest MusicMediaNews

If MAGIC! wins Single of the Year at the American Music Awards this month for its hit “Rude,” Toronto’s reggae culture will have played a part.

“Growing up in Toronto, there’s a pretty heavy Caribbean descent (and) community there,” the band’s frontman, Nasri Atweh, told Spin magazine in a summer interview. “So you grow up going to different college parties and everyone’s always playing reggae in the clubs . . . for whatever reason ever since I was a kid, whenever I heard reggae or reggae groove or whatever it was, I just understood the fun but serious part of it. I kind of got it.”

But the success that made “Rude” a No. 1 hit in the U.S. has eluded other reggae acts in the Greater Toronto Area.

Take Brampton’s Tasha T. She has had top 10 songs in Canada, Ghana, Italy and the U.S., earned a Juno nomination and toured worldwide, but she has to work regular jobs to help sustain her 25-year music career.

Her most recent album, Real Talk, was released in May via her own label, RasVibe Records.

“A lot of times what I find with a lot of us here is that we have to have a 9-to-5 to really balance everything,” she said. “I do all types of different jobs. Administrative jobs, customer service, sometimes I work in the factory.

“Even with grants, there’s so many independent artists that try to apply for these grants and they’re not able to get it unless there’s a close link that you know inside that can help,” she added. “It’s like an up and down situation.”

Cultural critic Klive Walker has written about the history of Canadian reggae, including his 2005 book Dubwise. He says a big gap has existed since the 1970s, when artists such as Leroy Sibbles, Jackie Mittoo and Carlene Davis migrated here, and local acts such as Truths and Rights, Mojah, the Sattalites and Lillian Allen emerged.

The music industry never truly backed the reggae movement, he argues, lacking the financial backing of a visionary such as Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, who successfully marketed Bob Marley to an international fan base.

“The thing was kind of diseased from morning,” Walker said. “Lillian, Mojah and Truth and Rights had to do a lot of work on their own. It’s a tribute to them that they were able to chip off a piece of mainstream notoriety out of it, but at the same time they didn’t have a consistent and substantial mainstream presence because the industry around them didn’t understand what they were dealing with.”

He also says a lot of Jamaican-born artists who grew up here during the emergence of hip hop in the 1980s and ’90s chose hip hop instead of reggae given there were more opportunities to make money.

Perhaps the most successful mainstream Canadian reggae act was Messenjah, who originated in Kitchener in 1980. They were the first Canadian reggae band in 1985 to be signed by a major label, Warner Music Canada, and appeared in the Tom Cruise movieCocktail in 1988.

The group has been reconstituted and will appear at the Tattoo Rock Parlour on Nov. 14, releasing a new single and performing other songs from their upcoming album We Return.

Charles “Tower” Sinclair, the band’s bassist, argues that a lack of business sense has hindered progress within the Canadian reggae scene and thinks artists should hold themselves more accountable.

“What (labels) look for is a business,” he said. “You need a business head to talk to a business head. We cannot just blame other people, we have to blame ourselves too.”

Sinclair said reggae acts here should bear no grudge against MAGIC!, which mixes reggae with other styles, including R&B and jazz, in its music.

“We have a little jazz influence in reggae, a little country influence. So why can’t they have reggae in their funk or reggae in their calypso?” he said. “Why must we think reggae must belong to us. . . . We got it from somewhere too. We got it from ska, we got it from jazz. That’s how reggae came down to what we made it today.”

JuLion King, a Toronto reggae promoter and founder of Canadian Reggae World, notes that European and Asian countries, as well as the U.S., have become big markets for reggae over the years and questions why mainstream Canada has not adopted the music.

“I’ve done reggae jams in this country for the past 15 years,” he said. “We used to play at the Opera House, BamBoo and other places. There are people who do love the music here.

“Reggae is the only music that doesn’t get mainstream airplay, yet why is it in Poland? Why is it in Japan? It’s not a fluke that reggae can penetrate every country; how come we can’t sell it here in Toronto? We’re a nonentity.”

There is some hope for the future in the form of Manchester-born Toronto singer Exco Levi, who has won the last three Reggae Recording of the Year Junos.

He admits there could be more mainstream promotion of reggae in Canada but says the music has evolved in terms of production and public interest since he immigrated here in 2005.

“I remember the first time performing in Montreal, there were 15 people,” he said. “But at the beginning of this year, I performed in Montreal and it was a sold-out crowd; me alone and my band. When I looked around the crowd, it was mostly white people. The promoters said to me they’ve never seen a reggae artist from Toronto draw those crowds in Montreal before.”

With a new album set for release next March, Exco believes he can carry the banner for Canadian reggae music but says the industry here must do a better job of unearthing and developing reggae talents.

Things won’t change “until Canada and the reggae community here realize what they have and realize that they have to support their artists and play them on the mainstream (airwaves),” he said. “We need booking agents, we need an industry.”

ArtistsDancehallLatest MusicMediamix-upNews
According to the Yardflex snitch, Ishawna and Satara Elliot were close friends until the sinjay decided to have sexual intercourse with her boyfriend Skatta Burrell.
After Satara found out about the Affair, an anonymous Instagram page was created and began to attack Ishawna accusing her of backstabbing Satara. We are not sure if the page was being operated by Satara or not. However Ishawna has since released a song sending subliminal disses at Satara.
“me and yu man cyah stop f@#k…of course am a side bitch cuz a pon the side him kotch it mek mi ride it,” she sings. See song below as well as a pic of Satara.

Mighty Crown and Fire Links to Settle ‘Unfinished Business’ on ‘Money Pull Up’ Tour – @IrishAndChin

DancehallLatest MusicMedia

It is a known fact that Fire Links and Mighty Crownare far from friends. In fact, these sounds move more like rivals than anything else. But in the rare instances when Mighty Crown and Fire Linksmeet up, an explosive, intense hardcore juggling experience is guaranteed! Last year, Irish and Chinstaged “Money Pull Up” inHartford, CT, featuring the rivaling sounds and Dancehall fans went crazy. Now, a year after the historical night, due to the demand of the masses, The Far East Rulers and the feisty Fire Links are taking their high level sound system entertainment on the road to settle ‘Unfinished Business’ on their “Money Pull Up” Tour, November 26 -29, 2014.

Staged by Caribbean entertainment gurus Irish and Chin, the “Money Pull Up” Tour will offer sound system aficionados 4 nights of unforgettable action packed performances in East Coast cities, including Boston, Rochester, Bronx and Hartford. This is definitely a special treat for fans and the industry alike. Prior to the landmark “Money Pull Up” in Hartford last year, Mighty Crown had not shared a bill with Fire Links in over a decade. The event was significant, as it showed that even warring sounds with public differences could entertain in a professional, fun manner.

“I think that it’s so important to keep the sound system industry buzzin’ with fresh and exciting concepts,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin“Bringing sounds together such as Mighty Crown and Fire Links supports a major goal of our R.E.S.E.T. (Restoring Exciting Sound System Entertainment Together) campaign.
