Two outstanding one riddim EP’s from Rorystonelove

Rory Stone Love releases 2 new Riddim EPs.  The word from Reggaemani.

Reggaemani

6zuzVeteran selector and producer Rorystonelove, who produced Jah9’s exceptional and acclaimed debut album New Name, has sneaked out two strong one riddim EP’s over the past months. Both Braveheart and Zeen are outstanding and superbly arranged.

Zeen comes with seven cuts and includes strong cuts from and number of up and coming singers, including Jesse Royal, Skygrass and Samory I, who’s Take Me Oh Jah was listed on Reggaemani’s best tunes in 2015 so far.

Braveheart comes with a statement. It includes six songs. All sung by female vocalists and no one is particularly well-known. But all cuts are minor masterpieces, especially Mamad’s Do Your Best, Racquel Jones’ Inna Di Giddeon and Kristine Alicia’s Freedom Fighter.artwork

These sets have been released with virtually no marketing or promotion, so don’t worry if you haven’t heard about them.

Girl Power – 7 Women Carrying the Reggae Banner

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
