.@Aidonia4thGenna Shines Through The Dark Times On “Faith”!


Recording Artist Aidonia has been through a few storms in his life, and is overcoming them day by day. Still mourning the loss of his son Khalif, many of his supporters are still sending well wishes to him and his family, with the hope that better days are near. In the meantime, the Deejay steps out with his first release of the year called, “Faith“.

The Banga House MG/Darshan Records-produced track finds Aidonia keeping his head up despite the troubles he is facing. While many would turn to vices, he keeps his faith in God, and stays strong for himself and his family. The Shane Creative-directed video finds him further emphasizing that faith will move mountains, and he will keep his son’s name and memory alive. “Faith” is Aidonia’s first release in months, and we urge fans to be patient with him at this time of grief.

While we’ve been awaiting his album for quite some time, Dancehall Artist Teejay continues to put in the groundwork that will further increase his following, and solidify his catalogue. His journey as an Artist has seen substantial growth over the years, making him one of the go-to Artists. No matter the level he is at, he remains ambitious. He speaks on that on “Visa“.

On a Sweet Music-produced track and a Xtreme Arts-directed video, Teejay still eyes the kind of success that will be long-lasting, and forever beneficial for himself and his loved ones. Despite the many challenges that may come his way, he trusts in the higher power to guide his steps, and avoid the oppressors who may try to block his path. Teejay connects with various people in the visual including some kids in the community, and at this point in time the youth need positive messages and the right people around them for guidance.

Marcia Griffiths’ “Electric Slide” Featured In “How I Met Your Father” Season Premiere!


It’s always a good time when it comes to watching your favourite TV shows. No matter the taste, there’s something for everybody. Earlier, the Hulu series “How I Met Your Father” premiered its 2nd season. The spinoff of the popular “How I Met Your Mother” series has featured a few hit song on its soundtrack, but for the season premiere, it featured a global Reggae classic.

On the episode titled “Cool and Chill“, Marcia Griffiths’Electric Slide” was featured. Originally called “Electric Boogie” which was recorded and produced by the late Bunny Wailer in 1976, and released in 1980 and 1989, “Electric Slide” lived a few lives over the years. While it was a minor hit for Wailer in the late 70s and 80s, Marcia Griffiths’ 1983 version of the record was released and became a minor hit as well. It wasn’t until 1989 when a remixed version that was featured on Griffiths’ “Carousel” album quickly made it a dance staple around the world. The new version gave birth to the “Electric Slide” dance, which became the official dance for cookouts, family gatherings, Weddings, and various celebrations and events over the years.

The premiere episode of “How I Met Your Father” featured a Wedding conversation, and was suggested by a cast member to include it in a Playlist, to which it was met with rejection. “Electric Slide” was previously featured in the Marvel series “She-Hulk, and was sampled last year on Cardi B’s “Hot Sh**” featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk. “How I Met Your Father” is a weekly series featured on the Hulu streaming platform.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Culture – Two Sevens Clash (1977)


Today we celebrate the birthday of a Reggae Icon who has contributed greatly to the culture, and funny enough he was the founder of a band called, Culture. We feature the late Joseph Hill today on Oldies Sunday by highlighting his band’s track called, “Two Sevens Clash“.

Produced by Joe Gibbs and released through Joe Gibbs Music in 1977, the Joseph Hill-led Culture shared an apocalyptic message on “Two Sevens Clash”. Inspired by a vision by Joseph Hill and a prediction by Marcus Garvey, the song spoke of the year 1977 becoming a year of judgment, and the date of July 7, 1977 (7/7/77) becoming a day chaos respectively. The song’s lyrics spoke of the 7s clashing (i.e. the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventy-seventh year), and it would mean that past injustices would be avenged. Joseph Hill’s vision came during a bus ride, with lyrics and melodies following, thus becoming a song in the process. “Two Sevens Clash”, while it was a very influential record upon release, it was paired with Marcus Garvey’s prediction, and caused many individuals in Jamaica to remain indoors and establishments closed, awaiting the fulfillment of the prophecy on July 7, 1977. The single itself was very successful as it gained a following overseas, and became the title track of Culture’s debut album that was released the same year. “Two Sevens Clash” went on to become Culture’s most memorable, successful, and influential song to date.

Since the release of “Two Sevens Clash”, Culture went on to release more music, securing its place as one of Reggae’s greatest bands. The band split in 1981, with Joseph Hill keeping the name, and recruiting new members. The band also had a rift with Joe Gibbs over unpaid royalties for the “Two Sevens Clash” album. The band continued to be active over the years till Hill passed away in 2006, prompting his son Kenyatta to take over as the lead Singer till this day.

THANK YOU CULTURE FOR THIS CLASSIC!
