This mix consists strictly of my favorite type of song, the collabo aka combination (duet, trio, etc.). There is usually more energy to a song whenever two or more artists decide to join forces on a single musical project and in reggae music, the excitement is heightened when singers team up with deejays.

Canadian based production house, Street Digital Records recently released the very powerful, Reggae Land Riddim, on which was featured songs from Sizzla Kalonji, Karamanti and Street Digital’s own, Keron Williams. The overall project has been doing well on Reggae radio programs around the world with three specific tracks gaining traction on commercial media: Sizzla Kalonji’s “Make It Right” (original and remix), Karamanti’s “Domestic Abuse” and Keron William’s “Di Lovin”.
Veteran artist Sizzla Kalonji is in his element on the track “Make It Right.” Many have said that this song reminds them of Sizzla Kalonji when he just came on the scene delivering powerful messages on authentic Reggae beats. Karamanti also remains in her element as she talks about the controversial issue of “Domestic Abuse,” something that happens at an alarming rate in Jamaica. And finally, Keron Williams, who is fairly new on the international scene, manages to capture the listener’s ear with his track “Di Lovin.” Of all songs on the Reggae Land Riddim, these three are in heavy radio rotation worldwide with the videos from Karamanti and Sizzla Kalonji getting consistent television airtime.
All songs on the Reggae Land Riddim can be purchased directly from Street Digital Records by visiting their website here.
“The passing of 57 year old Phillip Fatis Burrell at a time of great nostalgia for his 1990s productions resulted in a huge outpouring of sadness and love for his music. Burrell’s Xterminator empire was a chief architect of the 90s roots revival that helped make Sizzla and Luciano’s names — while giving valuable grounding to next generation artists such as Chezidek and Lutan Fyah.
His son Kareem “Remus” Burrell’s reboot label XTM.Nation has been attracting attention for similarly distinctive rhythms that continue the tradition of clean-sounding,
intricate, eclectic live instrument based reggae. And to commemorate a quarter century of the parent imprint he has released this compilation of unreleased material
produced by his father, along with his own creations. The cover depicting Luciano, Sizzla, Beres Hammond, Sly & Robbie, Dean Fraser and Earl Chinna Smith is illustrated by Original Jeremiyah and the heartfelt liner-notes are penned by writer and friend of Burrell, John Masouri.”
