The ladies are gonna go crazy for this one. If you’re a follower of Dancehall Artist Konshens, you know he always has a fire tune for the ladies. Recently, he released a bunch of them via a project titled, “Raw“. With 14 tantalizing tracks, the temperature will definitely climb even in the coldest of spaces when this is played. What will open the flood gates however, is track #9 “Say My Name” featuring Dexta Daps, another Artist who keeps the ladies on cloud 9 consistently. Produced by Dre Day and SOS Dynamikz (a lil about him here), the duo are competing for the #1 spot for the ladies, as they know what they do to ensure the women come back for more. For some, the final pick is tough, but the final decision needs to be made. Who do you need inside your world? Whose is it? Say his name now! Check out the track below, and share with a friend!

Christmas may be a lil early this year for some of you, and you’ll be rewarded whether you’ve been naughty or nice. For what has been a long time coming, well known Jamaican Producers SOS Dynamikz and BNJMN have announced their joint Album, “1221“! The duo have worked with each other over the years, but now they combine their sounds and bars for the new project. While the Album art has been revealed (designed by PlateFace), no further details will be out as yet except it will drop on 12/21 at 12:21 AM!
For those new to the Producers, check out our Article on 15 Producers you need to know that was released last Summer. Stay tuned for more updates, and check out their previous projects below!
There are Producers who can craft Riddims on the fly, there are Producers who can provide the Soundtrack to your thoughts and lyrics, and there are those who can tell a story. UK based Signature is an upcoming Producer who has a story to tell, and he does so on his debut Beat Tape! Titled “The Journey“, this 10 track project is a result of taking a hiatus from the online world to further develop his skills. Featuring various clips where he’s being Interviewed, he speaks on his aspirations, his inspirations, and the process behind the making of his Tape. The project also features collaborations with Producers SOS Dynamikz, Universal ZincFence, SkyRas, and Kvdence who all bring together their sounds to create that “Audio Dope“! Romell and Xandire however, contribute to the journey with Interludes and providing encouragement. If you’re an Artist looking for a new sound, give Signature a call (Whatsapp or Facetime perhaps?). A great debut from Signature as it encourage plenty replays with a sound for any mood and situation. Check it out below!
You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
*These Producers are not ranked in any way.
1. Wavy Jones
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!
The “Young Gorgon” Vindon has been on a low for a while but recently returned to give listeners that Blu Rok sound. Today he fires off with “Too Legit“! Produced by frequent collaborator SOS Dynamikz, the “Fly yute from di Tropics” lets off the bars “fi buss dem head“! Known to tackle beats with ease, Vindon even borrowed Veteran Dancehall Artist Tiger’s flow and paid homage to the “Don Gorgon“, Ninja Man in the end. No word yet on a full length project on the way, but anything is possible. Di style dem wha we have dem anuh regular, dis a sumn dem neva ready fa!
