Norris Man´s brand new album “REAL” is produced by swedish based HOT THIS YEAR BAND
(producers and musicians: Partillo, Lance-a-Lot, André Roots & Björn Bonnevier) and is released by Partillo Productions.
This album really shows Norris Man’s capability to build and write songs on a different level together with a band and producers. That makes this album genuine compared to lots of other releases nowadays.
The cooperation between Norris Man and Hot This Year band started in 2011 when they did a show together at the sometimes infamous but great reggae festival “Uppsala Reggae Festival“.
Their first studio sessions took place the same year and resulted in the 2012 released album “GHETTO LIFE” produced by Partillo, Lance-a-Lot, Kap10 and Rigo (Topaz/Infinite Mass).
The new album “REAL” contains high quality timeless one drop and roots reggae with a few exceptions with PAPA DEE
on the dancehall tune “REAL PEOPLE” and the collaboration with legendary U BROWN
on the rub a dub tribute “REGGAE ROLL CALL”
Check out the first single and video REAL PEOPLE with Papa Dee
Roots Musician Records is celebrating the release of E.N Young’s new single, “Eye of the Storm”, available on all digital outlets on NOVEMBER 18TH!
E.N Young’s new single, “Eye of the Storm,” will give listeners a taste of his upcoming sophomore album, ‘Live Love Stay Up.’ The single includes an original, acoustic and dub version and the album will follow suit. Each version stands on its own and highlights a different strength within Young’s wealth of talent as both an artist and producer. His vast knowledge of reggae’s Jamaican roots is demonstrated by the song’s upbeat rhythm section and dub inspired delays. An uplifting message of hope is expressed by the song’s lyrics and strengthened by the reassuring tone of his calm voice. Intricate layers of sustained electric piano, pulsing bubble organ and percussive synth are accented perfectly by Young’s signature melodica and will only help to solidify his standing as one of reggae’s most sought after producers.
Check out the JUST RELEASED music video for “Eye of the Storm” below!
Also a member of Tribal Seeds, E.N Young’s keyboard and studio skills are featured on the band’s new album, ‘Representing’. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes, Amazon and Billboard Reggae Album Charts and won Best World Music Album at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards.
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.
