We Look Back At Songs That Sampled @BunnyStrikerLee In Our Latest Playlist!


On October 6, Jamaica and the world lost another Icon, Producer Extraordinaire Bunny “Striker” Lee. Known as “The Gorgon“, Bunny Lee was man who has helped to shape music as we know it as he was an early adopter of Dub Music along with the late pioneer King Tubby. He was a pioneer of the Reggae Music market in the UK, and he was also the man who produced former child star now Dancehall Icon Beenie Man’s debut album. If you didn’t know, Bunny “Striker” Lee is one of the fathers of the Remix! Today, we pay tribute to his production work by highlighting some of his classics, and those who sampled him in our latest Playlist!

From Koffee, to Kardinal Offishall, to KRS-One, to Sister Nancy, to Sean Paul, learn a thing or few today, and enjoy some great music! He broke barriers, made stars, produced timeless music, and created a wave for many to follow. Walk good, Mr. Bunny “Striker” Lee O.D.! Check out the Playlist below, and share with a friend.

There Are No Flowers And Candy Included With Our “Lonely Valentine Playlist”.


Today’s Valentine’s Day! While many couples will be color coordinating and sharing gifts and quality time, there will be a lot of loners today. While reasons vary for the loners, it’s gonna be a long day. With that said, we’ve released “The Lonely Valentine Playlist“!

Featuring 14 classic sad songs from Alton Ellis to Vybz Kartel, we’re going with the theme as we’ve previously catered to the couples (even the Dancehall ones), and even the sidechicks (click the linked text for the Playlists.). Hang in there loners, things might turn around in a crazy way today, or soon. To those who miss their love, we hope they give things another chance. It’s still all about love. Shout out the couples on VDay.

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 3)


First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 3 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.

NEW VIDEO: @DJKhaled – Ain’t Nobody Got Dubs Like This


DJK

In the Dancehall culture, one of most important aspects is the Dubplate. Vital in Soundclashes and dances, it can either make or break a Sound System. Today, via Boomshoots, DJ/Producer DJ Khaled shows off some of his most cherished Dubplates. Khaled, no stranger to the Dancehall culture, played dubs from the likes of Buju Banton, Bounty Killa, Beres Hammond, Capleton, and more. This is a great watch (and listen) here as I’ve been familiar with DJ Khaled’s presences in the Dancehall. Older fans might remember his appearances at events such as “Fully Loaded” and his contributions via mixtapes. Can he beat Wyclef for having the most expensive dubplate? Stay tuned. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @TheRealJahCure x @SizzlaKalonji – King In This Jungle (1998)


R-2066737-1330027283

Today’s Oldies Sunday selections come from two Lions of Reggae Music, Sizzla Kalonji and Jah Cure. Titled “King In This Jungle“, this was produced by Beres Hammond for his Harmony House Productions in 1998. In this song we hear the two artists speak out on those who wish to oppress people but stumble with the help of Jah. They also consider themselves Kings in a society that’s like a Jungle and encourage people to follow Jah and have more faith in the teachings.
