The Top Conscious Reggae Collaborations of the 1990′s

3

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.

Sizzla Kalonji: “Make it Right” on the Reggae Land Riddim

1

SIZZLA KALONJI, KARAMANTI & KERON WILLIAMS TALKS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS, ABUSE & MAKING IT RIGHT

Canadian based production house, Street Digital Records recently released the very powerful, Reggae Land Riddim, on which was featured songs from Sizzla KalonjiKaramanti 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.

Jesse Royal – Little Did They Know (from XTM.Nation’s Living Heart Album)

1

Living Heart Artwork) sm

“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 HammondSly & 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.”

MR VEGAS INSPIRES WITH LOVE YOURSELF

2

Top flight Reggae/Dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas, who is known for heart tugging compositions such as Do You Know (2006) and more recently Black and Proud, has once again affirmed his place in the Jamaican reggae scene with a new and provocative Reggae jam titled Love Yourself.

mvly2013-rs

This powerful song, co-produced by Mr. Vegas and Troy Mclean of First Name Music, was created while Vegas was vibing to a beat presented to him by Troy Mclean and addresses issues associated with true love, not love of money or vanity.

The track, laced over a true reggae beat, addresses issues of self worth and like Black and Proud, seeks to inspire fans to build their self confidence and self worth. With lines like, ” Yuh cah find true love if yuh a run down wealth Some Nuh want Nuh love dem want physiological help.”  Mr. Vegas connects with current issues and concerns within the society.

According to Mr. Vegas, “The song is telling everyone to love themselves before anyone else….have self respect and appreciate life. Love Yourself was written when I just was holding a vibe and thinking about what people go through to reach stardom… the song is on the Selection Riddim and artistes such as Capleton, Christopher Martin and Sizzla have voiced on it.”

mv-music-logo

He has already started preparations to shoot the video for Love Yourself and his latest single Give It To Har.

Mr. Vegas promises fans that the video for Love Yourself will be innovative and will seek, like the song, to inspire change, “This song is very important to me as it addresses issues that not only affect people in my field but also many people in society who struggle with their identity and self-worth. The song is meant to inspire and so will the video”

This summer Mr. Vegas will then hit the road again, adding Europe to his list of performances on a summer tour.
