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.

Various Artists Compilation Album: Clarks in Jamaica

Greensleeves, in conjunction with One Love Books, is proud to present ‘Clarks in Jamaica’ the album tie-in with Al Fingers’ critically acclaimed book of the same name which chronicles the celebrated status of Clarks shoes in Jamaica.

Al, who compiled the CD and recently gave a talk on the subject at the V&A says, “Growing up in England I’ve always been fascinated by the Jamaican love of Clarks shoes and the way the brand is referenced within reggae and dancehall music. Vybz Kartel‘s tune ‘Clarks’ brought the phenomenon to many people’s attention in 2010, but the relationship goes back a lot longer, and I wanted to bring attention to that, highlighting the work of artists such as Dillinger and Little John who sang about Clarks many years before.
