OLDIES SUNDAY: @SteelPulse – Steppin’ Out (1984)


It’s Grammy season! With Reggae Artists like Koffee, Julian Marley, Sly & Robbie, Steel Pulse, and Third World in the running to cop one this year, we felt the need to highlight one of the unique moments in the Reggae category on Oldies Sunday. The aforementioned Steel Pulse Band is up with their 1984 classic, “Steppin’ Out“! Produced by Steel Pulse, Jimmy “Senyah” Haynes, and Del Newman, the track was featured on their 5th studio album, “Earth Crisis“. “Steppin’ Out” is also one of the first Reggae singles to be nominated for a Grammy award. The other single to be nominated was Jimmy Cliff’sReggae Night“. The Grammy eventually went to Black Uhuru in 1985 for their “Anthem” album.

With its energetic production, the single became a favourite for many listeners. Since its release, it has been sampled by the likes of Hip Hop Artists Rakim, Bun B, Blac Monks, Society, and EDM Artist Miguel Migs. It has also been covered by Alborosie, and remixed by Producer Steve Thompson, and the late legendary DJ Screw (you can hear the screwed & chopped version below).

With No Handouts, @FVRFVN Does His Thing On New Track!


Upcoming Trini Recording Artist FVRFVN is closing off his 2019 with new music! Having teamed up with Sarkastik Ambassador a couple months ago, he’s now handling things on his own here with the track, “Do My Thing“! With the title of the track, he definitely could back it up as he has handled production on this one. With lyrics like a heatwave over some booming beats, FVRFVN sparked a few flames here, and is ensuring listeners that he has a lot of clips loaded to go.

With the Island being synonymous with Soca Music, it’s interesting to see Dancehall and Hip Hop Artists pop up in Trinidad & Tobago in recent years. With the playing field widening even more, there is now more room for Artists to be as creative as ever. FVRFVN is just one of many who have taken on the challenge. Keep your eyes peeled for more developments from the young Artist.

We Look Back At @LenkyMarsden’s “Diwali Riddim” In Our Throwback Playlist Series!


Happy Friday everyone! While many of us are in the middle of Black Friday shopping all over the world, and our American friends are still sleepy after their Thanksgiving feasts, we thought we’d put a lil pep in your step. Bringing back our #13thStreetThrowback Playlist series, we go back to the year 2002 to check out the “Diwali Riddim“!

Produced by StevenLenkyMarsden and released through the 40/40 Label, the Riddim gave us plenty memorable tracks from the likes of General Degree, Wayne WonderBuju Banton, Danny English, and timeless hits like a track called “Get Busy” by Sean Paul (which was featured on a multiplatinum album), and a duo named Brick & Lace with the hit, “Love Is Wicked“. The Riddim has also been sampled by Tiwa Savage, Thutmose, Lumidee, and a certain Superstar by the name of Rihanna.
