Octane friends

A single that has been a popular one on Troyton Music’sIntoxxicated Riddim” has finally gotten the visual treatment. That single is I Octane’sHurt By Friends“. Directed by Bling Blang Productions, Octane shows us scenarios where people have been betrayed by their friends all while sharing his own stories and warns us of “fake friends”. A great visual from Bling Blang as usual and a solid single from I Octane. Octane has been working pretty hard to get new material out and has no intention of slowing down.

Dancehall/Reggae artist I Octane brings the vibes in his latest music video and doesn’t want it to end. Titled “Don’t Stop The Vibes” and directed by Bling Blang and shot at Paint Jamaica, we see the “Hot Ras” in a dancing mood and is joined by fans, dancers and DJs to kick off a party. See cameos from Ding Dong and the Ravers Clavers, and Markus Myrie, who happened to produce the single on the “On Fleek Riddim“. Great visual, and a fun song for now and the summer.

NEW MUSIC: @RealIOctane x @TheAlkaline x @Mavado_Gully – Above Them


Abovethem

Staying higher than mountains today are I Octane, Alkaline and Mavado. In what a few would call an unlikely combination comes “Above Them“. Produced by DJ Frass Records, we hear the trio speak on elevating themselves, looking back at their struggles, achieving success and laughing at those who try to stop them. Interesting to hear these three on one track, but they make it work over a dope DJ Frass production. Three artists who respect each other’s work, and one track that I believe will be a hot one this year. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
