REVIEW: @Protoje’s “For The Culture” Event + Highlights


The Hope Gardens Shell Bandstand served as the perfect backdrop to showcase some of Reggae’s young royals to an eager audience of Locals and Tourists all with one thing in common…a love for the Culture. I personally gave up on Music in Jamaica until I came across these new school of Reggae Royals who through their socially conscious offerings, give honour to the many men and women who preceded them in the genre…

The gates opened at 7:30 Pm and the DJ for the night Yaadcore kept the early patrons entertained on the turntables, and DJ Jimmy Q of NewsTalk 93 FM handled hosting duties. By 9 Pm, the venue was almost full and the show kicked off with the opening act Sevana. Featuring cuts off her Sevana EP and even debuting a new song and a remix to Protoje’s “Love Gone Cold” (she was featured on the original), she had the audience mesmerized as she belted out tune after tune. I still refused to believe she did all that on a sore throat (Editor’s Note: She’s my Hero!!). By the time ZJ Sparks gave Protoje & The Indiggnation the greatest introduction ever, the venue was packed with patrons who were eager to sing and dance along with them.

The mad Producer/DJ Yared Lee a.k.a. BoomDraw is back at it again with another remix! Today he goes in on Reggae Artist Jah Cure’sRasta“. A single that has been popular thanks to an Instagram post of Cure singing it with his Daughter Kailani, it is also a part of his Grammy nominated album, “The Cure“. As BoomDraw describes it, he wanted to re-imagine the sonic environment of the song as well as leave room for the vocal to shine through the track. Providing his signature Production, you can’t help but rock to it, let it free you, and share with others. Artwork by Trinidad’s Sarkastik Ambassador. I say 1, 2, Rasta is passing through, I n I a keep it cool…Real Reggae Music! Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @Onstagetv Interviews Richie Stephens


20130818-132148.jpg
Reggae music is a dominating genre the world over. Hailing from Jamaica and with the help of acts including Bob Marley, it touched and inspired all walks of life to the point its byproducts were not limited to coming from the island itself. One of the Jamaica acts to witness its global reach and effects is singer Richie Stephens. Here on Onstage he spoke about his recent tour which was a tremendous success, his collaborations with artists from Portugal to Germany including Gentleman, how Jamaica is missing out on all this attention, how local acts can benefit overseas and many more topics. Reggae is a very strong genre and the Jamaican culture broke every barrier possible. If only “Brand Jamaica” made it possible for the locals to benefit as well. What do you think of the Interview?
