REVIEW: @TaZzHTG – “Savage” EP


It’s taken me a little while to get around to checking this project out but i’m finally hip. First Coast Jamaica describes aficionados like myself who are obsessed with paving the way for an underground movement which clamors for a mainstream boost.

Words By: @Sef_Jo

Montego Bay native/South Florida based Daley has compiled Savage EP as a way of communicating this whole idea that Kingstonians cannot call all the shots where the game is concerned. With only a couple months since Know My Intentions by MoulaUE [featured on the project], Savage was released at an ideal time to get the place lit right before Summer ’16. I would personally call this 8-track project a smooth spin on this wave of future trap. It comprises of elements that TDE fans might enjoy with a production vibe which reminds me of SABApivot’s work. Without further adieu…
  • MANTRA
    The seamless Introduction to the project features the alluring vocal essence of Rosh. “One time for your mind..” is the message invoking a mindful meditation wherein listeners are asked to sit back listen and enjoy for the next 28mins~ Success, wealth and health for all.
  • CITY SAVAGE
    Clever metaphors and punchlines; sonics are on point too as we jump right in. Get used to the sound of Daley as his entire flow is switched up. At this point, I’ve made up my mind to refrain myself from too much comparisons. As we know, Mobay is the city Daley reps; I want to assume, however, that living in Pembroke Pines has had some influence on the Rapper’s creative experience. MoulaUE’s booming rhymes and OneLoveTheo final verse reminds us that we have got to keep it savage. This is the ultimate rule and trap culture is reiterated.
  • IGNITE
    As an audiophile, I always love when Artists choose singles that will get me hype. This is what made me interested in giving the project a listen. From the Instrumental to the energy presented here, I’m hardly regretting my decision to compare Daley to some one else. The mystery box that is First Coast Jamaica is that just as it in every other corner of the world, you never know what you will find. Ignite allows me to experience the full versatility of Daley, solely. Don’t care how you feel about it, this joint slaps.

GET TO KNOW: @JoshEra_ Of @REMlivingdream


Rapidly taking over your listening, social and creative space, Jamaican brand REM Entertainment is gradually generating a wave of tremendous proportion. If you don’t know now you DO, so sit back and take a peak into the mind of Josh Era as he sits with us to discuss the role his movement is playing in pushing the Jamaican entertainment scene to a higher plateau in 2016.

Sef: Kicking it off the right way, apologies for the delay; flu been had me sleep. We are honored to be working w/ REM Entertainment on various fronts. Punnany Pleasures is definitely a good look, well worth the 28 mins of play time.

JoshERA: Respect bredda, appreciate the support!

Sef: Got the go ahead to get things started so without further hindrances, I’d like to start by asking about REM: Who are you and what do you [as a collective] represent?

JoshERA: Basically… REM is a group of friends [more like family] and we put all our talents in music [DJ, Production, Artistry] and in Art [Photography, Graphics] in all forms. REM ENTERTAINMENT now is the sound made complete with DJ Kelly, DJ Laing and myself.

We play out at various events bring a unique energy and vibes to the crowd. REM itself stands for Rapid Eye Movement, just in case you weren’t aware.

Sef: Very interesting, surely seeing the correlation between your work as creatives and the dream state; I believe much of our creativity comes from the subconscious. I also do know versatility is key to gain credibility as a Jamaican DJ so what genres of music do you prefer to work with when mixing?

JoshERA: Versatility is very key and when I’m DJing I try to mix it up at all times – from old school hip-hop and rap to current Dancehall to current Hip Hop. I personally prefer current Hip Hop/Dancehall though.

When it comes down to it, the game of emcees will not and is not made for every living soul out here. Any class of elites that exists does not need to prove that they are elite, they just are. #PayAttention boasts of being Jamaica’s premier Hip-Hop event, where is the contention? If you ask me, those bragging rights are fully legit and unchallenged.

Laron, CEO/Founder of Deadline Promotions, has few words but is a major player to know.

Q: Deadline Sound has been working closely with #PayAttention since it’s inception. What has the experience been like carrying Jamaica’s largest Hip-Hop movement?

A: It has been a great experience and a great journey with the 1st Coast Massive. Deadline Sound represents for music and especially if that music comes from our own island shores. I have seen the #PayAttention movement grow and it continues to grow. I can only say: we are privileged to be apart of the movement!
