“It is time for us to push the creative boundaries and let our masterpieces speak loudly for itself in some classic, timeless, ageless manner.”


Jamaica is home to a musical culture that’s quite diverse in nature as displayed at the #PayAttention concert series. Regular patrons should know that after a short hiatus the show will be back on Saturday, January 31 at C&C South Beach, 2 Brompton Road.
Pay Attention - January 31 (Back)Rseenal is ready to perform a Hip-Hop laced set & he explains why as we caught up with him to ask about his 2015 plans.

Q: You’re a #PayAttention veteran, how exactly does it feel to be hitting the stage after the short break? [July 19th being the last staging of the show]
A: For the opening act after the break, to hit THAT stage means to set the precedence: upholding the highest standard all others must follow hereafter. This is a great task.. rather, a noble task in the local Jamaican Hip-Hop community, that must reassure the rest of the world of Jamaica’s Rap relevance. It is a worthy force to be reckoned with because the First Coast movement is fully active and greater is yet to come!

PRESS RELEASE: Why Is @DelusDJ Afraid To Love Again?

Standard

Delus (2)

Recording artiste Delus has been receiving a lot of support for his single ‘Afraid to Love Again’. The single has also sparked much debate on social media from his fans about his personal life. ‘Afraid to Love Again’ speaks about his heart breaks and relationships and shows a more vulnerable side of the artiste.

He shared “the inspiration for this song was based on true events in my life. Most people who have been in relationships and break up because of infidelity can relate to this song”. The single, produced by World Union on the ‘Four Seasons Riddim’, came after the success of ‘Another Gal’ which was released in January of 2011. ‘Another Gal’ also spoke about infidelity in relationships but, if you follow the storyline carefully Delus released another single entitled ‘Mi Find Her’ in December of the same year; now he is afraid to love again!

The Subkonshus signed artiste has since released ‘Love Hates You’ produced by Broxton Music and let us not forget the popular ‘Gallis (From Birth)’ single by Blaqk Sheep. When asked about his present relationship status and the releases of these story telling singles he had this to say, “I honestly had not planned that these songs be released in any particular order; I guess it’s just musical destiny. As for my relationship status, I am sure my music will give you updates”.

Delus is set to release his EP in March 2015 and possibly the lady interest influencing the lyrics behind his singles.

PRESS RELEASE: “Say Di Weerd” With @JavadaSubK x @KonshensSojah

Standard

unnamed

Subkonshus recording artiste ‘Javada’ is set to release

his new collaboration entitled ‘Say Di Weerd’ with Konshens on the ‘Fix Up Riddim’. The

release of the riddim, produced by ZJ Liquid’s H2O Records is eagerly anticipated.

“I am always using the slang “Say Di Weerd” so Konshens and I were in the studio

and I said it while talking and he said that’s going to be the song” Javada shared. Javada came on the scene in

2011 and was called “Loucrative” before he was given his present name by the Subkonshus CEO,

Konshens. The song is set to be released in the third week of January on I-Tunes.

He has since released videos for singles such as ‘Special Delivery’ and ‘Anything you

want’ and his mix tape entitled ‘Rude and Smooth’. When asked about his affiliation with

Subkonshus he shared, “I do get a lot of support from producers and deejays because of the

respect they have for my music and the music that Subkonshus puts out”.

Javada is currently working on his website javadamusic.com which will be accessible to his

fans in weeks to come. The website will feature news releases, give a-ways and new music.
