Dancehall & Reggae Music continue to influence many worldwide whether through the various sounds, lyrics, or even some of the people who create from the genres. Today’s entry is no different as famed Hip Hop Producer 9th Wonder dabbled in a bit of the sounds in his latest compilation album, “Jamla Is The Squad 2“! While the album features a host of tracks for every flavour, it’s the opening track that will surprise and awe many. On “Welcome To JamRoc“, the opening vocals come courtesy of Dancehall Artist Quick Cook, while the following production samples Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s “Welcome To JamRock“, and Ini Kamoze’s “World A Music“. With 9th tackling the production, Rapsody, Heather Victoria, GQ, Reuben Vincent, and Ian Kelly provide the lyrics that go well with the dope sounds. This isn’t the first time 9th sampled Jamaican music as he borrowed sounds from The Mighty Diamonds on the tracks “L.A.” and “Bad Man” by MURS, and Third World on the track “Let It Go” by Little Brother. Jamla Is The Squad 2 is out now, check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Recording Artist Maticulus Auburn is a yute you need to hear. Fresh from a short hiatus, he delivers his first recording since our 2017 favourite “All For You“, the Roe Summerz produced “Like I Do“! With his signature delivery, he gives us a tune that the ladies will surely love. Roe Summerz definitely provided the right sound for this track as it compliments the lyrics really well. This is the track you get close to her with, talk about the stars, crystals, the future, and assure to her that you’ll be her rock. Despite all that’s going on in the world, we all need some good music to help us get by, and this single is one of those you need to have near. Get familiar!

Today’s new entry comes from Singer/Songwriter/Producer Sheen (formerly known as Ashani), and you will feel the emotions in this one. Recently, he made his video debut with the single, “Lot To Lose“. Brought to you by the combined efforts of Stephanie Channer, Live High Meds, and Andre Livingston, Sheen is seen here belting out the Blues as he deals with some difficulties in a relationship. Co-written by Roe Summerz and produced by Irish Hill Records, this one is definitely a repeater as many of us can relate to the scenarios sung here. We love the direction of the video here as it fits the dark tone of the lyrics, simple and effective (and black and white (the proper term, right?)). Expect to hear more from this Artist as he has made waves over the years. Check out the video below and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Recently, Kevin Anthony Jackson o/c the Veteran Reggae/Dancehall Artist “Sanchez“, was recognized by the Government of Jamaica for his contribution to the music industry in the form of a street being renamed in his honour. “Park Lane“, off Red Hills Rd in St. Andrew, made way for “Sanchez Drive” and was met with much fanfare. We’d like to honour the living legend in one of the best ways we know how. Hitting up Spotify, we curated some of Sanchez’s greatest cover singles in the first volume of our “Cover Kings” series. A man who commanded the music scene for a few decades, your heart must be made of stone if you don’t feel these classics. Check out the playlist below, and share with a friend.
