The Heavyweight Rockaz Release Their Long-Awaited Self Titled Debut Album!


Known for hit singles such as “We Are The Builders” and “Raggy Road“, the dynamic duo of Unga Barunga and Welsh Bass a.k.a. the Heavyweight Rockaz finally release their long-awaited self-titled debut album. Released through the Notis Records imprint, the duo display 10 tracks that will stay at very high volumes, and bringing in vibes from all around for a wonderful listen.

The album has been seven years in the making, but the Drum ‘n’ Bass duo wanted to ensure that they accumulated enough productions that would secure a body of work that displayed them at their highest peak as Musicians, Producers, and now Recording Artists. The “Heavyweight Rockaz” project features appearances from Bay-C, Jesse Royal, Ding Dong, Vanessa Bongo, Imeru Tafari, Riff Raff, and Big Ras. Accompanying the album’s release, is a Lyric Video for the single “Dancehall Style“, which features Bay-C. If you’re in need of a project that brings different sounds and genres together by a duo who have made magic for years, then this is a great pickup.

Salim "BruceLim" Brown x Robert "Dubwise" Browne - "My Mind = Made Up" on 13thStreetPromotions.com

.@SalimxBruceLim Rocks Out With Dad @RobertDubwise On “My Mind = Made Up”


Musician/Producer Salim “Brucelim” Browne like many musicians, has been channeling his feelings through his Instruments. The Bassist has been crafting beautiful sounds for quite some time, and may be the secret weapon you need in a Studio session. With a handful of releases showcasing his production prowess, he takes a task that finds him collaborating with an Icon. That person is legendary Musician/Producer Robert “Dubwise” Browne, also known as his Dad! Together they make a beautiful moment called, “My Mind = Made Up“.

Armed with their many analog and digital Instruments, Salim and Robert Browne give us the father/son tag team with a diverse range of sounds. Originally an Instrumental with an Artist in mind, Salim scrapped the idea after not seeing any progress, and extended the beat with the help of his Dad. If you like the production, you may want to reach out for a chance to rap/sing/deejay over the beat. The father/son dynamic is no stranger to the music scene, as we have seen collaborations with Vybz Kartel and his sons Likkle Addi and Likkle Vybz, Burro Banton and Leno Banton, Buju Banton with his sons Jahazeil and Markus Myrie, and most recently Tommy Lee Sparta and his son Skirdle Sparta. We hope this opens the door for more father/son collabs, and we look forward to more from Salim “Brucelim” Browne!

(Editor’s note: Big up the Browne family! Generations of talent. Check out this classic.)

Hector "Roots" Lewis - "Ups And Downs" on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Chronixx #Reggae #RootsLewis

.@RootsLewis Is Saving Lives With @JLLProd Produced Single, “Ups And Downs”


A few years ago we did a weekly segment in honour of “Women’s History Month“, and one of those Women we honoured was the late Singer, Barbara Jones. She blessed the scene with her lovely voice, gave us beautiful music to remember, and left a solid legacy. Carrying on her legacy and carving his own lane, is her son Hector “Roots” Lewis Jr. He is a Musician, a frequent collaborator with many of your favourite Artists including Chronixx, and is now fully stepping out as the first Artist signed to Chronixx’s Soul Circle Music label. He puts his best foot forward with his much anticipated single, “Ups And Downs“.

Teaming up with acclaimed Producer J.L.L., Hector “Roots” Lewis gives listeners healing, upliftment, and all around good vibes with “Ups And Downs”. He encourages listeners to never give up when there is failure in their life as “you can never rise if you never yet fall down“, holds his ground as he knows he’s built for the challenges that life has in store for him, and reminds us to always have Jah in everything you do. “Roots” Lewis steps out strong with “Ups And Downs”, and we’re confident that his new journey will be very fruitful.

Jamaican Creative @Aurora_NG_U Hosts “Endz Off” Creative Mixer Event!


Update 1: “Endz Off” postponed until further notice!

The ability to create is such a beautiful thing, and the Island of Jamaica boasts a plethora of Creatives that help to elevate the Culture in Music, Fashion, Literature, and Art. Unfortunately, not many Creatives are being recognized as physical platforms for them to display their work are in short supply. Enter Kamoey Ng-You a.k.a. “GyalKapone“, a fellow Creative who hopes to make a change and start something new with her Creative Mixer event called, “Endz Off“! With a September 30th date and being held at Chaser’s Cafe (5 Belmont Rd., Kingston), Ng-You invites DJs, Writers, Musicians, Artists, Photographers, and Designers to attend and display their works of art to a new audience which can in turn create Business opportunities, make new connections, and growth in their careers.

When asked the reason for the event, Ng-You said, “I want to give all mediums a chance to just be comfortable in a non-competitive environment, because for young Artists in this Country, everything is a “Fight to the top”. While some competition is healthy, it’s not always the best because a lot of us suffer from issues that our Art gives us refuge from“. While the Event is free to attend and Creatives showcase their works for free, Ng-You hopes to get the attention and assistance of Corporate Jamaica, and encourages attendees to support by purchasing pieces from a Creative. “I’m trying to invite as much people to participate as possible, even if I have to pay for their work to be printed and mounted out of pocket because people need fi buss, and I’ll be damned if I don’t make that happen because I know I wish someone would help me” she added.

Creatives participating in the Mixer are requested to bring a copy of their favourite piece of work that they’re willing to part with as a giveaway session may arise during the event. “I want everyone to leave with someone else’s favorite artwork because that energy and positivity is channeled to others. Sharing the things that make you happy with someone else is one of the greatest things you could ever do and I want to promote that movement. I want everyone to have a smile on their face at the end of the day” said an exuberant Ng-You. She closed by saying, “It’s not about money, it’s not about hype, it’s not about a bagga chatting. It’s about giving everybody a platform to be themselves, be comfortable and make a future“.

The “Endz Off” Creative Mixer will start at 5PM, and ends at 8PM. To participate, contact Kamoey Ng-You at 848-2367, or send her a Direct Message on Instagram at @GyalKapone.

ART: @TajFrancis x @OverStand_JA x @Protoje x @IamChronixx Present: Who Knows Dub


TajFrancis

Now here is something appealing to the eyes! Top Jamaican Illustrator Taj Francis recently collaborated with Reggae acts Protoje and Chronixx, and Producer Winta James to craft an Audio-Visual EP titled “TENFOLD:Opus“. The EP is a collection of Audio-Visual pieces that interprets the works of the Musician, Producer and Artist. Titled “Who Knows Dub“, this piece was inspired by the duality of inner peace and anxiety. If you’re not familiar with Taj Francis, he is the person behind the artwork for Protoje’s albums, Green Lion Crew’s “Rough Road”, and many more. It’s always refreshing to see art like this on display and this is something that you watch over and over. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
