Sizzla Kalonji bolsters the riddim with “Greatest Mother,” a song in which he channels his inner synthesizer while bringing forth words of appreciation reminiscent of the vibe on his popular “Thank You Mama.”  Kana Stone performs a festival ready anthem for reggae music with a simple, yet passionate delivery on “Love the Reggae.”

Ginjah delivers a fresh marijuana ballad with a catchy refrain on “All This Time.” In a love song about his island nation entitled “So In Love,” Guche London pledges allegiance to Jamaica convincingly. Turbulence infuses his voice with the melodic notes of the riddim in the most soulful way as he sings of a love written in the stars on “For Me.”

Harlem, New York Hip Hop artist Charlie Clips combines with Delus on “They Don’t Know,” the most natural-sounding combination between rapper and singer over a one-drop reggae riddim. This joint is laced with conscious lyrics which would resonate with real hip hop heads and hardcore  reggae enthusiasts alike.

The official release date is November 6th, but the Reggae Vibes Riddim will be available for Preorder on iTunes on October 23, 2015.
