.@DZLRecords Kicks Off Holiday Season With New Music From @Seanresy & @Scantana1


After starting off the 4th quarter with new music from Scantana and Saine, Kingston based DZL Records strikes again with more music in time for the holiday season. The pandemic hasn’t stopped the Dale “Dizzle” Virgo founded label from putting out good music, and with new releases from Scantana and Seanresy, listeners will be in for a bonus.

Having made waves with “Goodie Goodie” recently, Scantana gives listeners another track to close the year off with in the street anthem, “Money Mecca”. Teaming up with Dale Virgo again, Scantana showcases lyrical dominance here with witty lines and adds some fun to his new street single. “Money Mecca” was originally titled “Money Mekka (Money Maker)” according to artist, but he decided to play on words as he deejays about being on the hustle in the Island that has birthed so many hustlers. With lines like, “Mi up like 747 24/7, mi fi start hustle 8 but mi deh deh fore 7, get it fi three five me a sell it for 7, tilli money tally like AK4…”, Scantana’s title as “Di man wid di most Grammar” is immediately confirmed as his skillset has been proven to be unmatched. “Money Mecca” is the 2nd single off Scantana’s “4WD (4 Work Days) EP” which is slated to be released in early 2021. Born Kibwe Lawrence in Central Kingston’s ”Tel Aviv” area, Scantana is a Rapper, Motivational Speaker, Actor, and Screenplay Writer. He found a love for music at an early age, wrote his first song at the age of 12, and went on to make a name for himself in New York’s South Bronx neighbourhood, and in Jamaica. He has shared the stage with the likes of Ma$e, Foxy Brown, SWV, and many others, and has collaborated with the likes of Anthony Red Roze, PseudoKhule, Serani, and Bugle.

Following Scantana is Seanresy with his latest single, “Fly Away”. Produced by Dale Virgo, Seanresy shares his need of wanting to get away from many things and situations that have been holding him and many others back. Not only does he reflect on his past experiences with poverty and those who have tried to hinder his growth and success, he shows that he is determined to not let them get in the way of him becoming a great man. The song finds him not only deejaying but singing on the chorus, and listeners will instantly connect with him and relate to the lyrics. Seanresy hopes that listeners will find some motivation in “Fly Away”, and help to propel the song to various parts of the globe. Born Shawn Baccas in Penwood Estate in Kingston, music found Seanresy’s interest from an early age. Mentored by the late King Tubby, Seanresy has been blessing the world with great releases like “Bridges”, “Join Hands”, and “Preach War”.

Scantana’s “Money Mecca” and Seanresy’s “Fly Away” is now available on all digital music streaming platforms through DZL Records. For updates on upcoming releases and more, visit DZLRecords.com, and follow the label on Twitter and Facebook at @DZLRecords, and on Instagram at @DZLRecords876.

Watch What You Say To @MainlyMali, Those Are “Fighting Words”!


It’s been a while since we’ve featured Alex Mali, but she has been pretty busy since our last feature. Never slowing down the grind, she has been making the rounds as one of the hot artists you should have on your radar. With her unique style and Caribbean influences, you’d be lying if you don’t like what she brings to the table. Recently, she released her “Phenom EP“, and today we check out the video for one of the EP’s tracks, “Fighting Words“.

Directed by Mali, Frank Apollonio, and Xtina Prince, we hear Alex going through it with people who just can’t accept that she’s in her own world and they should mind their business. You say something slick to her however, she has the right to do something about it. The video for the track is simple but effective as she is joined by some young ladies who all have specific words written on their faces. According to Mali, those words have been stereotypically used for women over and over. The usage of them in the video shows that they won’t be oppressed by them. Alex Mali continues to showcase her unique style, and if you haven’t been hip to her yet, don’t hesitate to do so now.
