While it has been “Too Late” for some this past Summer, Recording Artist Jane Macgizmo is right on time with the way her career is going. Recently she, along with Zinc Fence Records Producer Teflon, were called up to lend their musical hands in the Soundtrack to the upcoming Amazon Prime TV series, “SYN“. Jane’s latest single, “Too Late” will be featured, along with her contribution to the Series’ Theme Song. Original Production by Teflon will also make an appearance throughout the season.

“SYN” is a psychological Thriller written and produced by Award winning Jamaican Director/Producer/Writer Toni Morgan Haye (related to the this Blog’s Founder? Maybe lol) that focuses on the main character named Jess (played by Emily Sweet). Jess has amnesia and remembers nothing about who she is or where she came from.

We featured Jamaican Producer Chnce earlier this year along with some other dope Producers, and today we’re dropping something new from him! Titled “Deep In There“, he not only plays his role as Producer, but dons the hats of Songwriter and Recording Artist. Featured on the “Therapeutic Riddim“, a part of a Compilation by Kreatif Substans (more on that later down), Chnce goes into “Mr. Loverman” mode for the ladies! Putting a chosen lady in the starring role for a good time, Chnce details what they’ll do from the foreplay right down to climax. According to the Producer, while the track is explicit, the intention of the song was to be soft and mellow, with a few dashes of aggressive and clever lyrics. From here, Chnce flexes his pen to ensure that the ladies’ imagination is on fire when giving the track an earful. This is Chnce’s second appearance as a Recording Artist, but don’t expect him to put it at the forefront anytime soon. Expect more Production from him later this year, and maybe a surprise verse or few. Have a sexy good time by checking out the track below.
Update 1: “Endz Off” postponed until further notice!
The ability to create is such a beautiful thing, and the Island of Jamaica boasts a plethora of Creatives that help to elevate the Culture in Music, Fashion, Literature, and Art. Unfortunately, not many Creatives are being recognized as physical platforms for them to display their work are in short supply. Enter Kamoey Ng-You a.k.a. “GyalKapone“, a fellow Creative who hopes to make a change and start something new with her Creative Mixer event called, “Endz Off“! With a September 30th date and being held at Chaser’s Cafe (5 Belmont Rd., Kingston), Ng-You invites DJs, Writers, Musicians, Artists, Photographers, and Designers to attend and display their works of art to a new audience which can in turn create Business opportunities, make new connections, and growth in their careers.
When asked the reason for the event, Ng-You said, “I want to give all mediums a chance to just be comfortable in a non-competitive environment, because for young Artists in this Country, everything is a “Fight to the top”. While some competition is healthy, it’s not always the best because a lot of us suffer from issues that our Art gives us refuge from“. While the Event is free to attend and Creatives showcase their works for free, Ng-You hopes to get the attention and assistance of Corporate Jamaica, and encourages attendees to support by purchasing pieces from a Creative. “I’m trying to invite as much people to participate as possible, even if I have to pay for their work to be printed and mounted out of pocket because people need fi buss, and I’ll be damned if I don’t make that happen because I know I wish someone would help me” she added.
Creatives participating in the Mixer are requested to bring a copy of their favourite piece of work that they’re willing to part with as a giveaway session may arise during the event. “I want everyone to leave with someone else’s favorite artwork because that energy and positivity is channeled to others. Sharing the things that make you happy with someone else is one of the greatest things you could ever do and I want to promote that movement. I want everyone to have a smile on their face at the end of the day” said an exuberant Ng-You. She closed by saying, “It’s not about money, it’s not about hype, it’s not about a bagga chatting. It’s about giving everybody a platform to be themselves, be comfortable and make a future“.
The “Endz Off” Creative Mixer will start at 5PM, and ends at 8PM. To participate, contact Kamoey Ng-You at 848-2367, or send her a Direct Message on Instagram at @GyalKapone.
