Jamaicans Want More Stitchie!

Jamaicans Want More Stitchie!The lieutenant turned pastor converted the patrons that came out to the 2015 Rainforest Seafood Festival in Montego Bay last Wednesday night. With heavy rain pouring down the massive crowd cheered, danced and applauded as Lt. Stitchie delivered an entertaining, inspirational and humorous set.

When he arrived at the event, Lt. Stitchie and his team were advised that the time allotted to him initially would be reduced to 20 minutes due to the late start. With this in mind Stitchie had no choice but to shorten his performance, something the audience was clearly not happy about.

Stitchie took them on a musical journey, teasing them by doing snippets of some of his biggest hits; “wear yu size”, “natty dread”, “great ambition and more. The lieutenant also did some of his more recent releases, tracks like “man a pastor”, which had the crowd laughing at the comical story lines, “fast and pray” and “Lord Almighty” which captivated them. He also did some new exclusive pieces written specifically for the event.

At the end of his set the veteran Dancehall artist was flooded with requests to make additional appearances in Montego Bay (the city where he got some of his biggest breaks and made some of his biggest changes in music).

While on tour in Europe Karamanti shot the video for her single “Big Woman Ting,” one of her more popular tracks in that region. The video features two of Scandanavia’s top female dance groups, the Vuvuzela Dance Crew and the Kazoo Dancers. As the beat was built by a producer from Zimbabwe, Karamanti was also fortunate to get an African model, Lea Monde, to play a key role in the video.

Check out the official video for “Big Woman Ting” on Karamanti’s youtube channel. DJs may download the song from a link placed in the description box.

Powerhouse Production Team Yaga Sounds features Sizzla In New Tune DBM (Dem Bad Mind)

Reggae artist SIZZLA

Powerhouse production team, Yaga Sounds, features Sizzla Kalonji with the new tune DBM (Dem Bad Mind) currently available on iTunes. While Sizzla is constantly releasing songs throughout the year, this trio aspires to take this one from a major buzz on the streets to the international market.

DBM was premiered on Large Up and Reggaeville last week, two of the largest Reggae sites in the world. Sizzla delivers a heavy message over a driving up-tempo riddim, “You have some people go on like them are the best, all them do is fight against the progress, tell da wicked man say dem just can’t test, tell dem life over death….Dem Bad Mind.”

Dubbed as a hard-hitting dance hall tune, DBM gives a hardcore message. It speaks against negative people and negative situations, while promoting a good positive environment and positive energy. Playfully at the end Sizzla teases with an unpredictable ending for the ladies.

Yaga Sounds member, EchoSlim describes the message, “Dem Bad Mind is deep in turns of all the social issues that are going on with the Ferguson Riots, the murder of Mike Brown and Mario Deane, all the way to Trayvon Martin to as far back to even Emmett Till. It represents injustice happening to people all over the world. It speaks to everyone that has an unjust way of thinking from politicians to police officers to every day people. No one is exempt, from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low.”

“The riddim is going to be one of the baddest riddims of the year. This track should be one that the DJ’s will like and will turn up the parties. It can fit in any time of early or late juggling. The lyrics and the riddim fit in for everyday life, everyone can relate to it. Look out for more bad riddims that we will be releasing in the future,” expresses one of the members of Yaga Sounds, Joshua “Gappo” Manning.

Yaga Sounds is currently made up of Flexx, a Dominican and world-renowned engineer that works with Flo Rida, Lauryn Hill, Robbie Shakespeare and others. EchoSlim is a Trinidadian that has toured the world with Black Violin under the moniker DJ TK. Gappo is a Jamaican and the son of legendary reggae singer Donald Manning of the Abyssians and is currently the keyboard player for Beres Hammond. Yaga Sounds is an unorthodox sound crew. A hybrid of a sound system and a live band, aimed to spread West Indian culture and music around the world.
