for sure. But seeing as he had a big hit with a version of the original song, it would have been appropriate to tag him on there in some fashion. Thug is there only in the capacity of having been on Havana, lol

Ohhh I get it now. Sorry, Delroy Wilson's classic Studio One version is a fave so I blanked on Buju & Wayne:

three weeks pass...

anyone know what the riddim is on this Sikka Rymes track "Ready"?

(starts about 90 secs in lol)

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:17 (one month ago) link

really into this new Chronic Law "Good Name":

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:21 (one month ago) link

another confusingly excellent Kartel banger, ho hum:

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:27 (one month ago) link

hi rob, can I just say: fuck that video Sikka Rymes video.

breastcrawl, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:34 (one month ago) link

so upsetting I fucked up that sentence

breastcrawl, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:35 (one month ago) link

oh no, I didn't actually watch it, I'm sorry. I just cue videos up and then do things on other tabs. I better check it out...

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:36 (one month ago) link

ugh, sorry about that! I would have posted a warning if I'd realized.

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:39 (one month ago) link

I do the same with videos, I often post links without actually watching them - not necessarily the smartest procedure.

breastcrawl, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:44 (one month ago) link

Yeah absolutely, I'll be more circumspect in future, not looking to ruin anyone's day here.

I'm never quite sure what I think of Jah 9, but consider this a morally astringent palate cleanser at any rate:

rob, Saturday, 22 February 2020 15:53 (one month ago) link

a breath of fresh air for sure

I haven't had time to listen/browse lately, but did want to say two related things:
1) "Highly" is awesome and deserves more appreciation than my prev post; really beautiful track, will def check out her album which I think comes out Friday
2) thread followers might like the For Posterity podcast; I've only listened to this woman-centric episode so far, but it was a lot of fun: (first ep is with Gavsborg from Equiknoxx and third is w/Jah 9)

Dancehall is some of my fav music lately tbh surprised this thread doesn’t have more shit in it

Likkle Vybz & Likkle Addi released an album as U.T.G. and it’s pretty good.

i will ride for highly which should be far more corny than it is considering the lyrics/structure; jah9 is pretty dope

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 13 March 2020 18:46 (three weeks ago) link

exactly! the album is out now, but I might be too distracted today to give it a listen

Chronixx's new one, "Dela Move," is stately, spiritual reggae--layers of hand drumming, chanting and flutes--with Chronixx getting closer to rapping (I swear he goes into a triplets/trap flow for a few bars) than I think he ever has before; the Koffee influence is mutual maybe?

At any rate, it's a scorcher:

in a completely different mode, Jada Kingdom's new dembow banger "Heavy!" is super infectious uhh fun:

rob, Sunday, 15 March 2020 16:06 (three weeks ago) link

Heavy is indeed... uhhh... dope.

DJ Frass' High Rev Riddim is nice.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Monday, 16 March 2020 09:18 (three weeks ago) link

love “Dela Move”

the way trap dancehall is crossing over to Trinidad is really interesting to me... enjoying these new medz records esp

but also prince swanny and boy boy

everything I heard on the Incredible riddim was great; here's Konshens:

rob, Tuesday, 7 April 2020 14:32 (two days ago) link

Nice and minimal riddim

curmudgeon, Thursday, 9 April 2020 04:00 (seventeen hours ago) link

agree that Konshens is the best on the incredible riddim

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 9 April 2020 13:32 (seven hours ago) link
