The Biggest Lovers Rock Anthems of the 90s

Episode 2 - Greatest Lovers Rock Combination Anthems of the 90s

Reggae Lover Episode 2 – Greatest Lovers Rock Combination Anthems of the 90s

1   Yami Bolo and Merciless – Curly Locs

After a short intro from yours truly, this mix starts off with a 1996 hit, Yami Bolo and Merciless singing Curly Locs – a lovely representation of the Junior Byles original song.

2   Andrew Bell and Shelene Thomas – Can You Give Me What I Want?

A big lover’s tune that can be found on one of the VP Records “Strictly the Best” compilation albums from the 90s.  Andrew Bell is still performing today and goes by the name Joseph Quote (aka “Bello”.

3   Sanchez and Beenie Man – Going Away

Quite simply one of the biggest songs on the prolific “Love Bump” riddim.  The King of the Dancehall alongside Sanchez, one of Jamaica’s most beloved voices.

4   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton – My Woman Now (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix)

In the original version of this song, Buju takes too long to come in.  Here, I have taken care of that problem.  Let me know if you like the sound of this “Extra Buju Mix.”

5   Cocoa Tea and Nadine Sutherland – Its Now or Never

Many have forgotten that these two artists ever sang together on a track. The combo of silky smooth male and female vocals make this tune simply SWEET.

6   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks – Waiting In Vain

This is one song I just don’t mind hearing at any time.  Done nicely by Cocoa and Cutty, this Bob Marley classic is bound to live forever

7   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton – Who Say

Stop everything!  No keep going.  This is one of the top combinations in the business period.

8   Cocoa Tea and Buju Banton – Too Young

I had a tough time selecting only one song from this riddim, but the production on this track is just perfect.  Forward, Rewind and pull up dat!!!

9   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks – I’m Not A King

Once again, hear back-to-back entries from the sweet voice of Cocoa Tea, this time accompanied by Cutty Ranks, who remained relevant in the 90s with solid lyrical delivery in this style.

10  Buju Banton and Wayne Wonder – Lonley

The “Swing Easy” is always a riddim that one can I listen or skank to for an extended period.  In this selection, I am pulling out some of the best cuts to feature, and Buju Banton along with Wayne Wonder have a winner with “Lonely.”

11  Chevelle Franklin and Lady G – The Right Slam (Kahlil Wonda Spicy Mix)

As a second song on in a row on the “Swing Easy” riddim, this song features two of the finest ladies of the era (80s – 90s dancehall).  I have reworked the song here to bring Lady G in at the proper time, thus maintaining the vibes of the mix.

12  Twiggi and Buju Banton – I Want Your Love (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix)

Buju is my artist, but here again the original press of this Penthouse Records Tempo riddim single makes you wait for a few verses to hear Gargamel come in.  I have made some adjustments to the arrangement so that the singer, Twiggi, goes back and forth with the DJ. This creates the ultimate in vibes.

13  Beres Hammond and Josey Wales – Free and Single (Sweetness)

Beres is the living legend – what more can I say? With father Josey in combination on the Conversation riddim, this remix to “Sweetness” is dancehall solid gold.

Nadine Sutherland Releases New Music for 2009

1
    nadineNadine Sutherland first captured the world’s imagination as a child, and her star has shown brightly ever since. An internationally recognized Artiste, and acclaimed songwriter, Nadine has been blessed with many talents, dancer, media personality, not to mention her many journalistic contributions throughout local print media, make her one of Jamaica’s most formidable talents. Throughout the years, she has continued to grow and blossom as an artiste; like fine wine, toned, beautiful, and sexy, she has grown from a little girl, into a phenomenal woman, all right in front of the public eye.
In 2009, Nadine decided she wanted to record new music, early January, she began writing and recording, working with some of the brightest new producers in the industry, but, still keeping the link with some of the more established producer’s she collaborated with in the past, Shane Brown , Lenky Marsden, Arif Cooper, and others have helped in creating exciting new songs that her fans have long been waiting for. “I am happy to be just working in the studio again, music is my life, no matter what else that I do, I am a singer/songwriter, who wants to perform, and just get my stuff out there”, she says. Her unique vocal styling has been compared to the likes of Whitney Houston, and Anita Baker, her range and tonal quality has been respected by music ears around the world. Nadine Sutherland is one of our best, and she carries herself and our flag with her usual humility and grace.

After garnering a new generation of fans with her work on “Rising Stars,” she recently took a short hiatus from the popular television show to perform in a series of concert dates across North America. Her singing and dancing had her fans excited by the sheer power of her stage magnetism. Nadine’s many years of hits, had her audiences singing word for word, her every move keeping them in her command.”Manchester Fiesta”, saw her exciting the local masses, one of the defining moment of that night, was her performance. She left them wanting more, and having one emcee marveling on her fitness. Fans are remarking on her new energy, her new drive, and loving her new look.

Her first single “Down on my knees,” produced by Arif Cooper, showcases her range, and her ability to capture raw emotions, and project her depth, and passion. The beautiful, haunting melody, of the music highlights Cooper’s usual musical flare, and the truth and experience Nadine conveys to her audience in the lyrics, proves that she is one of our most dynamic songwriters. Nadine brings a vulnerability, and sensitivity, to the lyrics that paint a picture all can relate to.

Nadine has already established her place in Reggae history, and with this new music you can expect that she will definitely continue to add to her rich legacy, establishing her own unique place in the musical history.

Girl Power – 7 Women Carrying the Reggae Banner

2

The results of the Highlanda.net survey on new female reggae artists are in…

Several female voices have come out of Jamaica in the last few years who are looking to one day be mentioned amongst the likes of dancehall veterans like Marcia Griffiths, Nadine Sutherland, Lady Saw, Tanya Stephens and others.  Who is your favorite FEMALE reggae artist on the scene right now?

…and the winner was a Jamaican actress and Dancehall/Reggae vocalist, Cherine Anderson with 40% of the votes. Her duet with Chuck Fender entitled Coming Over established itself as an anthem in the dancehall. Download a free mixtape of her music hosted by Rory of Stone Love from her website CherineAnderson.com. Cherine is a young, but accomplished talent. Her films to date include Dancehall Queen and One Love.

In second place was Queen Ifrica, also known as Fyah Muma out of Tony Rebel’s Flames Production camp. Queen is more than just a good entertainer. In her hit song Daddy she tackles the issues of child molestation in the household. Her music is a true inspiration especially to all women and is filled with reality and very timely, conscious messages.

Next we introduce to the world Etana. Etana, which means ‘strong one,’ rejected the words and image of the sexy dancehall genre in favor of a visible lifestyle defined by Rastafari. She has by all evidence, been vindicated in her choices. Etana’s debut single, Wrong Address, struck a resounding chord and is still getting major radio play, while Roots, her next release is climbing similarly.

Also weighing in was the young Jamaican idol and Universal Motown recording artist Tami Chynn. A pop princess who emerged from one of the grittiest, male dominated music scenes, Jamaica’s dancehall. “My influences are very eclectic. If you browsed my iPod you’d get confused, but it all works really,” says Tami. Her new single Frozen featuring Akon is the title track of her new album in stores now.

All these artists are a big wave in the tsunami of talent coming out of the Caribbean. Other upcoming stars in the business to keep an eye on:

Tessanne Chin
Alaine
Mischu Laikah
