Speaking on a troubled relationship, Stone made reference to Disney as one of the factors for keeping it together and working things out. With Karz on the keys, Stone with a Drum and Trevor armed with a Guitar, this session was a great listen and even without the song, you can still move to the rhythm! Kapital Stone is an Artist based in Florida that has been making some noise there for a quite a while. Look out for more “Kngly Live!” sessions soon! Get familiar with KnglyStudios.com!

@Troyton_TM Is A “Dancehall Bully” On New Riddim.

International Producer Troyton of Troyton Music, is quite optimistic that his latest Riddim project titled Dancehall Bully, is one of the biggest in the Dancehall circuit. The star-studded project was only released a little over a month ago, but is already making the charts and taking over the streets. Dancehall Bully tracks are featured on BBC 1xtra and many more stations, locally and Internationally.

Dancehall Bully featured artistes such as Aidonia, Mavado, Demarco, Jahmiel, Busy Signal, Charly Blacks, I-Octane, Moshan and Theron, and was released on August 26, 2016. Dancehall Bully is distributed by 21st Hapilos, and is available on iTunes, Amazon and all other digital outlets for purchasing. “The Riddim is already creating waves in Dancehall space. It is one of the most talked about Riddims right now, especially since Mavado’s song is seen as a diss track to fellow Deejay Popcaan,” said Troyton.

Troyton is currently in the studio working on another Riddim project for next year. This project is called True Emotions and is set to be released early January. “I am targeting audience worldwide with my productions; I do good quality music and try to incorporate different genres,” said Troyton.

@IshaBlender Has An “Epiphany”!

Isha Williams was a Toddler in the early 1990s, a period of cultural awareness in Dancehall led by a phalanx of Artists, including her father, Everton Blender. Strongly influenced by his message, she followed his path into music as Isha Blender. Her first EP, Epiphany, will be released in October. It contains seven songs with Don’t Be Used, an acoustic number, being the lead.

Blender first recordings began at age 12 with the first being Bad Boy, produced by her father for his Blend Dem label. She continued to record sporadically while attending Garvey Maceo High School in her native Clarendon. Shortly after graduation, she migrated to the United States, settling in South Florida where she is a registered nurse. “Because my dad’s an Entertainer, people think you have to do the same thing, but it doesn’t have to be,” she said. “I kept going away from music, but I was pulled back like magnet to steel.”

Epiphany also contains Testimony, a duet with Capleton, Tonight, Joy, and Babymother. Capleton and Everton Blender were part of the Roots Renaissance of the 1990s that was led by Yasus Afari, Garnet Silk and Tony Rebel. Everton Blender had a series of big hits back then such as Lift Up Your Head, Family Man and Blend Dem. While she counts the ‘old man’ among her biggest influences, Isha Blender says she gets a different vibe listening to different genres. Neo-soul artistes Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, as well as homegrown acts Nadine Sutherland, Etana, Tessanne Chin and Ikaya are also favourites. She is hoping Epiphany will be a career definer. “I want to be an household name as Isha Blender. At the same time I want my songs to uplift and motivate like my Dad.”

@MajorLazer, @IAmTheKartel’s “Pon De Floor” Featured In New @Cheerios Commercial

Jamaica has made its way onto International Televisions once again thanks to Commercials. Recently, Cereal brand Cheerios released a series of Commercials with the focus on Family.

The Commercial featured various clips of Babies and the messages, “More Babies, Please” and “They’re Fun!” while the Instrumental to the single plays throughout. “Pon De Floor” helped to bring Vybz Kartel’s career to another level (and Financial bracket), and went on to be sampled on one of Recording Artist Beyonce’s biggest hits, “Who Run The World (Girls)“! The single was also featured on Major Lazer’sGuns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do” album and opened the door for many remixes. Shout out Commercial Tunage!
