God Bless Dancehall

Conscious dancehall reggae music from Chronixx, Vybz Kartel, Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Jesse Royal, I-Octane, Etana, Konshens, Jah Cure, Tarrus Riley, Capleton and more.

Enjoy a mix of songs with danceable beats and lyrics imploring listeners to stop negative behaviors.  This is feel-good music professing positivity and denouncing injustices.

This episode is an example of reggae’s power and evidence of message music continuing to come out of Jamaica in “dancehall” style. It is up to us DJs and Sound System selectors to use our influence to set a tone of consciousness by featuring better music.  We can and should influence artists and producers to clean up their act by not playing low-quality, negative music.  There is an opportunity to strengthen and edify the future generations with our music and I feel obligated to wave that flag.

New Reggae Music: MS PAIGE – ‘RISE UP’

Ms Paige has teamed up once more with Enos Peniston (a.k.a. Mandrike) of COZMIKNATION PRODUCTION to share with you her first 2014 release.  In celebration of what-would-have-been Bob Marley’s 69th birthday, Ms Paige presents a positive message through the lyrics of this conscious reggae track entitled RISE UP.     Written and performed by Ms Paige, RISE UP is featured on the Wreckless Riddim.     “With all of the terrible things that generations before us had to endure, it blows my mind that the ignorance of racism still lives today. The colour of one's skin does NOT define whether or not they should be held in higher regard than another. It is time to rise above stereotypes, rise above hate, RISE UP!”  ~ Ms Paige

Proceeds from Gramps Morgan’s new single Go to family of Trayvon Martin

3

 

Soulful Reggae star, Gramps Morgan has taken a stance in solidarity with the family of Trayvon Martin, the 17 year old boy recently killed in South Florida.  To date, the man who shot and killed Trayvon has not been charged. So in an effort to support the Martin family’s demand for justice, Dada Son is donating a portion of the proceeds from the iTunes sales of Gramps’ new single, ‘Life Too Short’.

 

“Yes Rasta!” American-Jamaican crooner, Gramps Morgan is unleashing another anthem with his unique brand of ‘Rockaz’. His first single ‘Life Too Short’emerges from his upcoming second, solo album, Reggae Music Lives which will be released on April 24 2012, in time for Mother’s Day.

 

Penned with his brother Peetah Morgan, ‘Life Too Short’ was co-produced by Roy ‘Gramps’ Morgan and keyboardist, Llamar ‘Riff Raff’ Brown (Stephen Marley). Gramps Morgan has the gift of delivering spiritually uplifting lyrics aimed precisely at the listener’s soul. Through song, Morgan reminds us to live this life while we still have it. Gramps says ‘Life Too Short’ is simply “a song of comfort”, and as a firm believer in delivering music to heal humanity, ‘Life Too Short’ raises consciousness of the fragility and sanctity of life.

Gramps Morgan’s songs and lyrics tend toward the positive in all situations, so when he belts out “…Life too short fi a stress di small things when we know Jah bless me with everything /Life too short fi a worry bout bad mind when the world a suffer from war and crime…” he means that he draws his strength from Jah/God. Believing in a greater power than self, Gramps urges the listener to stop wasting time sweating the small stuff and to let go of grudges and “bad mind” (a Jamaican idiom that refers to being envious of, or grudging someone).

 

Trayvon Martin

 

Gramps’ perspective on the murder of Trayvon Martin is that of a father and an American citizen. In a recent statement the Centric Soul Train nominee said: “I couldn’t imagine that ever happening to my son.” He’s speaking of his eldest, Jemere. “As a father of a 16 year old…I don’t know what I would do if I was in that situation, but I know that justice must be served.”

 

“We have been following the tragedy that has happened with Trayvon,” explains Wendy Morgan, Gramps’ manager, “and after reading a report that he was a lover of Reggae music, it humbled us to have someone of that age love our music. We wanted to do our part to pay respect to his young life and contribute to help keep Trayvon’s memory and legacy alive.”
Finding strength in the hardest of times isn’t always easy, but Gramps is reassuring people that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

 

‘Life Too Short’ was recorded in Kingston, Jamaica at Grafton Studio and Dada Son Recording Studio in Atlanta Georgia.

 

The single is now available on iTunes with a portion of the proceeds going to the family of Trayvon Martin.

 

“I’m free like a bird, Jah is my word, that means my word is love.” Gramps Morgan
