NEW MUSIC: @WizeTheProducer – Jealous


Today we introduce to the Blog a Producer by the name of Wize. This UK based Producer has been making a name for his rather unique beats/remixes and today I feature one titled “Jealous“. Here he flips Bollywood and Alicia Keys samples over his own set of drum kits that he also sells. While hearing this beat, I pictured a short film going along with this. Expect more from this talented brother but for now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @CharMaxRomeo – Chase The Devil (1976)


max-romeo

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from “The Son Of Selassie” a.k.a. Max Romeo. Titled “Chase The Devil“, this was produced by Lee “Scratch” Perry with backing by “The Upsetters” band in 1976 for Island Records. It was also a single included in Max’s 4th studio album, “War Inna Babylon“. The song brings forth a “Good conquering evil” theme where the Devil is being a negative force on Earth and when Max dons his Iron shirt, he will fight the Devil and send him to outer space. Max later explained that the Devil is everything negative in our minds and the Iron shirt is our strength of spirit that allows one to cast out the Devil.

Titled “Birthday” and produced by Will.I.Am and Damien LeRoy, this features samples from Jamaica’s own Aidonia (Fi Di Jockey) and Bounty Killa. The song is basically a feel good song that promotes living life to the fullest all the time and celebrating it like it’s your birthday. Sounds like a hit to me here and it’s very interesting to hear Dancehall being sampled in this. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
