Diseases Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound | Episode 66

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim is featured here.

I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled “Mad Mad Mad” produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad Mad.

This mix starts with Mad Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. Thank you for listening to the #ReggaeLoverPodcast

Top Reality Songs in 1990s Reggae Dancehall Music

It was a time when Bounty Killer was given the title “Poor People Governor” and had a streak of hit songs banned from radio airplay in Jamaica because he spoke out against corruption and divisiveness in political policies and sang about ineptitude and abuse by local law enforcement. There was a resurgence of lyrical protest songs uniting and re-energizing the dancehall followers in the streets of Jamaica with positive messages earning the biggest crowd responses. Buju Banton, who emerged as the “Voice of Jamaica” delivered words of wisdom and warning to his fan base and his lyrical ideals deepened right along with his Rastafarian faith.

MORE FIRE! Top Reality Songs in 1990s Reggae Dancehall Music | Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 60

The same went for Capleton who was dominant and was dubbed “The Fire Man.” Capleton burned the hottest fire with a string of releases that dissected and illustrated all the faults he found with “Babylon system” and during his live stage performances, massive eruptions of energy occurred. Artists such as Sizzla, Luciano, and Anthony B were also extremely influential within this conscious movement of the 1990s.

The up-tempo (dancehall) riddims being produced in this era of Jamaican music offered very diverse story lines so there were songs about the latest dance moves, gunman tunes, girls anthems, and ganja dedications surrounded by songs about spirituality, African liberation, “burning out” current corrupt government officials and taboo trends, or the struggles of the poor in the ghetto.

This mix focuses on the danceable selections of that period that kept it real. Reality tunes, similar in content to the roots reggae standards of reggae’s foundation era, but aligned with the most popular riddims that dominated the dancehall. This was the music that could be heard at the climax of sound system sessions primarily from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. Please press play and take a brief trip back to “fire time.” More Fire!

Michael ‘Que’ Nugent, an engineer/producer who has done work with artists such as Sizzla Kalonji, Lt. Stitchie and many other great Jamaican acts, has re-entered the music business after a very long hiatus.

Cyber World Riddim

Que, as he is affectionately called by his colleagues in the industry, this week, released the “Cyber World Riddim.” This is a four track compilation featuring Omar Perry, son of the legendary Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Karamanti, Tasha T and Blessed. The songs are currently only available to disc-jockeys as the official digital retail date has not yet been announced.

Stream all songs on the Cyber World Riddim via this link . DJs may email mariajacksonent@gmail.com for the promo mp3s.

 

Music Review: Various Artists – Reggae Vibes Riddim

Reggae Vibes Music presents the Reggae Vibes Riddim featuring 15 all new one drop productions from Reggae Vibes Music / Warriors Musick Productions.   The Riddim features a new song from reggae legend Sizzla, strong entries from Lutan Fyah, Jah Mason, and Fantan Mojah along with emerging singers Devano, Deego, Dreama, Shane Hoosong and more.

Highlanda.net review of The Reggae Vibes Riddim

Reggae Vibes Riddim artwork

Sizzla Kalonji bolsters the riddim with “Greatest Mother,” a song in which he channels his inner synthesizer while bringing forth words of appreciation reminiscent of the vibe on his popular “Thank You Mama.”  Kana Stone performs a festival ready anthem for reggae music with a simple, yet passionate delivery on “Love the Reggae.”

Ginjah delivers a fresh marijuana ballad with a catchy refrain on “All This Time.” In a love song about his island nation entitled “So In Love,” Guche London pledges allegiance to Jamaica convincingly. Turbulence infuses his voice with the melodic notes of the riddim in the most soulful way as he sings of a love written in the stars on “For Me.”

Harlem, New York Hip Hop artist Charlie Clips combines with Delus on “They Don’t Know,” the most natural-sounding combination between rapper and singer over a one-drop reggae riddim. This joint is laced with conscious lyrics which would resonate with real hip hop heads and hardcore  reggae enthusiasts alike.

The official release date is November 6th, but the Reggae Vibes Riddim will be available for Preorder on iTunes on October 23, 2015.

Welcome to the first reggae lover podcast episode of Spring 2015, marking the show’s one year anniversary. I have nothing but appreciation for those of you who listen to and support my podcast. I am in the process of moving and setting up a new studio to be able to continue producing this content so there have been some delays, but that will be over soon. Expect more unique mixes and informative updates to come your way on a weekly basis right here.

This mix was recorded live at Studio No. 7 in Atlanta on Friday March 20, 2015 where I represent the theme “Welcome To Jamrock.” This is a refreshing 100% reggae excursion where tunes and good vibes flow all night – a true reggae lover’s event in Atlanta.

This audio portion begins with 3 Protoje collaborations off the new ‘Ancient Future’ album featuring Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Jesse Royal, and Sevana. Also in the mix, hear from Bob Marley and the Wailers, Dennis Brown, Barrington Levy, Sluggy Ranks, Luciano, Sizzla, Inner Circle, Beres Hammond and many more.

Reggae Singer Luciano, Greatest Hits Highlighted

luci

We salute a living legend, reggae singer Luciano who has released 21 studio albums over the course of a brilliant 22 year career. One of my favorite artists and live performers, Luciano gained prominence around the world during the “Rastafari renaissance” in dancehall that took place in the mid-late 1990s. He established himself as a name synonymous with roots reggae and became one the sub-genre’s pillars.

This 1 hour mix of 42 songs focuses heavily on Luciano’s material from Where There Is Life, and Messenger, which were albums produced by Phillip “Fattis” Burrell and his Xterminator label. His latest album,The Qabalah Man, was released on the 29th of November 2013. Please support this phenomenally talented artist by buying his music/merchandise and patronizing his live concerts. You will not be disappointed.

This Reggae Lover Podcast episode opens with the leader of the reggae revival Protoje explaining that he makes music from his heart and not for the charts. Sizzla can be heard begging “Please do not mash up the dance.” George Nooks and Mikey Spice tell stories about having a good time in the dancehall. Alborosie excerpts that Reggae and rubadub music still rock the dancehall to this day.

Garnett Silk compares music to the rod that Moses walked with as he led the Father’s people to the promised land. Luciano sings about the many positive effects of reggae music on the body and mind. Richie Stephens and U-Roy sing out about the nicest times when real reggae music used to play.

Bryan Art describes the love and confidence that overcomes one when entering the dancehall. Christopher Martin paints the picture of a reggae road block where people are dancing in the streets, creating the perfect chill spot. Crooner Kashief Lindo shares a bit of his personal story on the song “Music Is A Part Of Me.”

Steel Pulse, Dubtonic Kru, Gramps Morgan, XO, Hero and Richie Spice all give their take on why Reggae music is so good and what it means to them. Busy Signal goes in about how everybody smiles and unites when positive reggae music is played.

Gentleman teams with Sugar Minott to reminisce about the good old days when there was no drama and the musical foundation imparted love and good vibes. Inner Circle alongside The Reggae Wave sing in defense of the genre.
