Where are the Anime lovers? Were you one of those folks who subscribed to CrunchyRoll and tuned in to Cartoon Network’s “Toonami” segment? What were your go to Anime shows? Inspired by the production of the late Japanese Producer Jun Seba a.k.a. “Nujabes“, Jamaican Producer BoomDraw steps out with his first Dancehall Riddim in over 3 years titled, “Jamaican Nujabes“.
A Riddim that you can really deliver some thought provoking lyrics on, BoomDraw shared that the melodies were inspired by the works of Nujabes as he produced the soundtrack for one of his go to Anime shows, “Samurai Champloo“. One of Boomdraw’s favourite Producers, he wanted to channel the Nujabes’ eclectic approach to putting together sounds, and inject into his Dancehall creations. Boomdraw went on to say, “I wanted the track to feel very vibrant and transport the listener into a carefully constructed soundscape that would bring feelings of euphoria. I feel very satisfied with how the final product turned out and I’m very excited to share it with the listeners.” This production is a follow up to BoomDraw’s “Juss Beats” compilation he released in January.
Think you can drop a song on the beat? The Riddim can be found below, and will be available on popular Streaming platforms on Friday February 8.
You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!
The mad Producer/DJ Yared Lee a.k.a. BoomDraw is back at it again with another remix! Today he goes in on Reggae Artist Jah Cure’s “Rasta“. A single that has been popular thanks to an Instagram post of Cure singing it with his Daughter Kailani, it is also a part of his Grammy nominated album, “The Cure“. As BoomDraw describes it, he wanted to re-imagine the sonic environment of the song as well as leave room for the vocal to shine through the track. Providing his signature Production, you can’t help but rock to it, let it free you, and share with others. Artwork by Trinidad’s Sarkastik Ambassador. I say 1, 2, Rasta is passing through, I n I a keep it cool…Real Reggae Music! Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
