.@DZLRecords Brings The Heat With New Releases From @SaineMusic & @Scantana1


Kingston based Record label DZL Records continues to put out quality music for the world to enjoy. With success in 2019 and most of 2020 so far, the label looks to keep the energy up moving forward. The Dale “Dizzle” Virgo founded label was started in 2012, and has been responsible for producing hits with Christopher Martin, Kim Nain, Chronixx, and Ikaya to name a few. With new releases from Saine and Scantana, DZL Records wants to close out the year in style.

Scantana is the first to step out with the release of “Goodie Goodie”. A song directed at the ladies, it finds Scantana putting together catchy lyrics, producing melodic flows, and cleverly weaving the names of 39 beautiful Jamaican women, and International celebrities throughout. Overall, Scantana’s aim with “Goodie Goodie” was to make the ladies feel good, further boost their confidence, and recognize their beauty in every way. “Goodie Goodie” was premiered on New York’s Hot 97 through the legendary Bobby Konders and Jabba, in various elite African Radio stations, and is the first single off of his upcoming EP with Dale “Dizzle” Virgo. Born Kibwe Lawrence in Central Kingston’s ”Tel Aviv” area, Scantana is a Rapper, Motivational Speaker, Actor, and Screenplay Writer. He found a love for music at an early age, wrote his first song at the age of 12, and went on to make a name for himself in New York’s South Bronx neighbourhood, and in Jamaica. He has shared the stage with the likes of Ma$e, Foxy Brown, SWV, and many others, and has collaborated with the likes of Anthony Red Roze, PseudoKhule, Serani, and Bugle.

Saine follows the release of new singles with the track, “Peace Of Mind”. An upbeat Reggae track produced by Dale Virgo, Saine focuses on Mental Health here as she encourages everyone to find their peace, and protect it. With the world experiencing the Covid 19 pandemic, Mental Health is something that is being greatly affected, and Saine provides comfort and relief at this time through music. “Peace Of Mind” will be featured on Saine’s upcoming EP. Born Saine Rapley in St. Andrew, she believes in putting in the work to become great. With a few years in, she has blessed listeners with a powerful voice through her many releases, and has recently collaborated with Spragga Benz on his chart-topping “Chiliagon” album, and International Author Gregory David Roberts’ upcoming “Love And Faith” album.

Scantana’s “Goodie Goodie” is now available on all digital music streaming platforms, and distributed through AWAL.

.@PopcaanMusic Checks In With @JorjaSmith On “Come Over”!


International Poppy is at it again! Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated “Fixtape“, Popcaan continues to cross seas and plant the Jamaican and Unruly flags in various territories. Finding himself in the pop scene this time around, he connects with Singer Jorja Smith on, “Come Over“.

Produced by Dre Skull, Pasque, MadisonLST, and Cadenza, we get a Dancehall flavoured/sampled track that finds Jorja wanting to “fix tings” with her love interest, while Poppy smoothly steps in the fire off some slick lyrics. Accompanying the single, is a Future Power Station animated visual which was directed by Amber Grace Johnson. A not too fast, not too slow release here, definitely something to slow wine with that special person with. With the pandemic causing a lot of distance between many, may the Zoom and Facetime calls find this song a worthy part of the soundtrack.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @MichieBadGalMee x L.A. Luv – Jamaican Funk (1990)


For today’s “Oldies Sunday“, we’re going give it you Hip Hop style. For those unfamiliar, Hip Hop’s roots traces back to Jamaica. While many have done tremendous things for the genre and its culture, we have to remember the pioneers. Jamaica has DJ Kool Herc, and also Michie Mee, a Canadian Hip Hop pioneer. Today, we feature Michie Mee’s single, “Jamaican Funk“.

Produced by King Of Chill and released through First Priority Music in 1990, “Jamaican Funk” was a collaboration between Michie Mee and DJ L.A. Luv, and was a single that helped to spawn the growth of the Canadian Hip Hop movement. It was also one of the first singles that blended Hip Hop and Dancehall as Michie deejayed and rapped throughout the track. The single did very well for Michie Mee, and was given a remix called, “Jamaican Funk Canadian Style“. Both versions were featured on Michie Mee & L.A. Luv’s album, “Jamaican Funk-Canadian Style“, which was a success for the duo as the album crossed borders, charted on American charts, and was nominated for a Juno award. Since “Jamaican Funk”, Michie Mee went on to make more moves as an artist including founding the band, Raggadeath, influencing the new generation of artists, and kicking down the door for many of your favourites. She also dabbled in acting with roles in the film “In Too Deep“, and appearing in TV shows like “Soul Food” and “Da Kink In My Hair“. She is the Queen of Canadian Hip Hop, and a yaad she come from!
