Is Dancehall Dying? (13th Street Rants Ep. 2)


You frowned or scratched your head when you saw the title. It’s ok (lol). With Dancehall Music seeing a lot of gimmicks, beef, drama (most of them unnecessary) over the years, it hasn’t really been seeing favourable returns. Instead, we have outsiders enjoying our musical styles with most not paying homage, or even helping out some of the talent here. While they can’t shoulder majority of the blame, many Artists, Producers, DJs and Industry folk are the culprits as they failed to innovate, hold back many promising opportunities, and failed to give the music that needed “push”.

Today, we speak on a few things that turn us (and many others) off about this genre that has the potential to do even more, but is being held back. Respect to all the Artists and DJs who are trying in the meantime. We love Dancehall, but it has a tendency to be a little stubborn in thinking. Check out our rant below. You can hear our 1st episode here.

Enjoy Your Easter Weekend With @DemoXD’s “WullaVybz”!


One thing with Jamaicans, everything we touch turns to gold! While you all are enjoying the Easter Weekend (If you’re at work, I’m sorry šŸ˜¦ ), I present to you a lil theme music courtesy of Producer/Recording Artist DXMVRC. Titled “WullaVybz“, the Production encourages you to just “Gwaan WullaYybz (Hol’ A Vibes/Get Lit/Have Fun)”. It’s amazing what can come from chilling on the beach (He revealed that he made thisĀ while dipping in Jamaican waters). For those new to DXMVRC, the former Glenmuirite has been producing for a couple years and has released a couple EPs along the way. He has also lent his voice as a part of a couple Choirs in Jamaica. You need to get in the car, and head to the beach with this blasting at full volume! A part of the AME Sound, hear the track below.

@ZJLiquid Unleashes New @IamTheKartel Album, “Black & White”!


Popular DJ and Producer ZJ Liquid has released the long awaited Album from Dancehall Artist, Vybz Kartel. Titled “Black & White“, features 13 hits that were producedĀ by Liquid himself, and famed Producer Don Corleon. The tracks however date back as far as 2003, a time when Liquid’s H2O Records was established, and include “Hello Moto”, “Dem Bwoy”, “Mother In Law”, “Life Me Say”, “Fix Up”, and “Live Your Life”. The Album name is based on Kartel’s change in physical appearance over the years.

“When I decided to venture into Production, I had my objectives lined out and I was determined to make my mark in the Music Industry. Over the years, I had the opportunity to produce a few of Vybz Kartel’s hits which I have now compiled into an album,” said ZJ Liquid. The Album saw a March 10 release, and is currently distributed on all major Digital Media outlets by 21st Hapilos.

ZJ Liquid also shared that this album will give the general public a better understanding of who he is as a Producer as many fans tend to pay more attention to his DJ persona. “Many fans see me as a DJ first and Producer after. They know I am in Production but they are not aware of the altitude to which I take it. This Album will help them to recognize what Instrumentals were produced by me as well as which of their favorite Vybz Kartel tracks I’ve produced over the years,”Ā shared ZJ Liquid. “Since its release, I have been receiving a monument of positive feedback. The fans have been supportive, and have been sharing the project on various Social Media platforms,” he added.

ZJ Liquid is optimistic that the Album will climb the charts both locally and Internationally.

@KCharlzMusic Returns To Shake Up New “Kngly Live” Session


A new installment of “Kngly Live” is finally here featuring a familiar face, Recording ArtistĀ K Charlz. This is our first tango with the Artist this season and he does not fail to deliver his sound reverberating acoustic melody. Unlike last time, we find ourselvesĀ outside the familiar space that is Kngly Studios, and Producer Kris Karz is nowhere in sight! Taking on a more natural atmosphere, K Charlz invites us to shake off some of those purely bad vibes by chanting this fully acoustic cover of the Bob Marley track, “Crisis“. Trevor Hansen provides the music and puts our minds at ease while K Charlz delivers the lyrics! Stay up to date with “Kngly Live” by visitingĀ  KnglyStudios.com! Feel free to share your thoughts after checking out the video below.
