“You’re gonna enjoy the s**t out of this vibe…”

Last year, International Recording Artist/Producer M.I.A. announced the release of her 5th Album, AIM.

Earlier this year, M.I.A. previewed a second track with the Singjay during a livestream, and today we have it! Titled “Load ‘Em“, Dexta delivers his signature sound to get the party started over a production that sounds like a blend of Jamaican and Indian influences while M.I.A. chants at different points of the song. A song to build a vibe with and reel in a few of your friends to dance to. Get your dance crews ready for this one. Weh mi Rum deh? Check out the track below.

@DelhiSultanate Uses Reggae For Political Activism In India


While your favourite Artist may be using Reggae/Dancehall creatively (or stupidly) in Jamaica, the influence of the Music Culture continues to affect many others worldwide. One person in particular is Taru Dalmia a.k.a. “Delhi Sultanate” of New Delhi, India, as he uses not only Reggae, but the Sound System Culture to channel his Political Activism. While India is under the rule of the Hindu Nationalist Government lead by Narendra Modi (Bharatiya Janata Party), Taru alleges that free speech is being threatened under his rule, and using his talents will assist the many protests that are being held in many Universities across the nation. Armed with classic singles, and Dub Plates from the likes of Toots Hibbert, Barrington Levy, and Anthony B, he hopes that his assistance in the fight will not be in vain.

Taru is also a member of The Ska Vengers, a live Band that blends Dub, Pop, Ska, Jazz, Rap, and Punk to deliver a new sound. Below is a clip from the Al Jazeera Network where we look into Taru’s journey, and the challenges he has faced so far. We also feature some of the singles that could spark protests, and some that speak against the Jamaican Government.
