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 😦 ), 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 this 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.

5 Star’s potential has been recognized throughout the world using music that not only brings awareness to real life situations but by also providing encouraging lyrics that simultaneously stand as reminders to stay on the righteous path.
