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.

.@DawnPennMusic & Tenor Saw Classics Featured In “See You Yesterday” Film!


Have you been watching any films lately? If so, have you seen the new Netflix movie, “See You Yesterday“? Directed by Stefon Bristol and produced by Spike Lee, the movie finds two best friends, CJ and Sebastian, (Eden Duncan-Smith and Dante Crichlow respectively) building Time Machines in an effort to reverse the unjustly death of CJ’s brother. While the Film aims to give you a lil Sci Fi fun, you might hear some familiar music in it. As a part of the Film’s soundtrack, the late Tenor Saw’s 1985 hit, “Ring The Alarm“, and Dawn Penn’s 1994 hit, “You Don’t Love Me (No No No)” were featured! “Ring The Alarm” was featured on the “Stalag Riddim” and released through Winston Riley’s Techniques label while “You Don’t Love Me” was a Dancehall remake of Dawn Penn’s 1967 single.

The soundtrack choices wouldn’t be the first time a Spike Lee production featured Caribbean music as his Netflix series “She’s Gotta Have It” featured Dancehall, Reggae, and Soca music (more on that here). “See You Yesterday” is now playing on Netflix, but you can check out the Trailer below and share with a friend.
