What’s better than listening to a Vybz Kartel song? Listening to many of them in one sitting of course! With many unsure of the chances of the “World Boss” being a free man anytime soon, it’s good that we have plenty of his music to hold us over till then. Having had a run of Vybz Kartel themed mixtapes, DJ Heavy D of the big bad Chromatic Sound delivers another one in time for the holiday party season. Titled “Str8 Vybz Vol. 1“, we get over an hour of Addi hits, dubplates, collaborations, and some offerings from some of his “children” that we know you’ll love all over again. In case you didn’t know, this is also promotion for the upcoming “Str8 Vybz” event to be held in New Kingston in December. Check out Str8 Vybz here for more info on that. For now, tun up di sound, World Boss time! Check out the mixtape below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

You may have heard of the “Tall Ras“, you may have enjoyed his DJ gigs whether he plays in the club, the street or at your favourite University, but what you know about DJ Ariez? Representing Clarendon, he has been in this DJ game for quite some time. While many may be familiar with his stint as a member of YxB (Youngest x Baddest), he has recently joined the ranks of Chromatic Sound and continues to keep your attention thanks to his collection of Mixtapes and live juggling. We had a chance to holla at the DJ and get his thoughts on his recent signing, thoughts on the Jamaican Entertainment Industry, plans for the future and more.
13thStreetPromotions: Greetings Ariez, pleasure to hear from you. Catch us up on the momentum you’ve been gaining recently. Fans would love to know about your recent game-changer, bring us into your shoes so we can know what the Chromatic experience is firsthand.
Ariez: The momentum since the move is a little overwhelming as it is a huge step up in my DJing career. This new opportunity has granted me more work (more Mixtapes, DJ gigs etc.), access to a larger fan base, and more promotion for my brand. I am ever so grateful for all of this.
13thSP: Let’s not kid ourselves, to work with one of Jamaica’s current top selectors is a huge achievement. Did you always figure it would be Chromatic and if this doesn’t get you into too much trouble, were there any other prospects?
If you’re a fan of the “Big Bad Sound” Chromatic, then you definitely know about Niko a.k.a. Nikomatic a.k.a. NikoChromatic. A founding member of the DJ Collective, he was missing out of the limelight for quite some time. While many speculated a possible rift with the other members, Creep, another founding member, assured fans that he’s still a part of the team. Today, the real reason Niko has been missing from the Collective’s various gigs, and Mixtape releases was the fact that he has been battling Kidney Disease. While the news has sent shock waves across Social Media, Niko stated that his battle can be a short one through the help of surgery and revealing it to the public wasn’t an easy feat. The team recently started a GoFundMe account to seek additional aid for the ailing DJ/MC. While we here at 13thStreetPromotions wish the best for NikoChromatic, we urge you the public to assist in any way by donating via the link below, sharing the article, and of course praying.
