OLDIES SUNDAY: Sonya Spence – Let Love Flow On (1981)


In recognition of March being “Women’s History Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few women who have made their contribution to the Jamaican music landscape in the early years. In our next selection, we  highlight the late Singer, Sonya (sometimes Sonja or Sonia) Spence. She was a part of the new wave of promising acts in the 1970s and 80s. Today we look back at her single, “Let Love Flow On“. Produced by Sonia Pottinger (Jamaica’s 1st female Producer) for High Note Records in 1981, this was featured on Spence’s “Sings Love” album that was released in the same year. With a blend of Funk, Reggae, and Soul, Sonya spreads her soft vocals all over the production, and will find you grooving with your favourite person.

While Sonia had a run that birthed a few popular tracks and the release of a few albums, the later days were not very kind to her as she developed a drug habit. She made appearances at various places including Schools (Editor’s note: She made numerous visits to Manchester high when I was a student there) where she would warn against drug abuse, and she’d lend her voice to a few persons along the way till she passed away in 2007.

We hope you enjoy our selection today. Be sure to check out the track and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Make A Splash With @RikiSimmonds’ New Single, “Waterfalls”!


Dropping new music is emerging Recording Artist, Riki Simmonds! Bringing a new flavour to the scene, she’s definitely an Artist to watch out for. Today she makes “waves”  with “Waterfalls“! Produced by Troy Baker of Geejam Records, Riki speaks about someone who has captured her attention, and makes her go from having her head in the clouds, to coming down like a Waterfall! It’s like that sometimes (lol). Blending a mix of Dancehall, Soul, R&B, and Afrobeat with her unique lyrics, we believe she will be making a lot more noise in 2018!

NEW VIDEO: @SoulOnlineNet x JaneDoeSmith – Wet (Remix)


JDS

Popping Champagne, smoking Hookah, and partying the night away are the themes in this music video from Canada based producer SOUL a.k.a. DJ BLKLUOS and Rapper Jane Doe Smith. Titled “Wet (Remix)” and directed by Zac Facts, we see scenes of women enjoying liquor, smoking Hookah and Marijuana. We also see a lighted candle dripping wax, a glass being filled with water and honey which probably plays into the title of the song. The track is instrumental based where Jane Doe Smith handles the chorus and chants “Make Me Wet“. Great production, cool visual because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like seeing hot girls enjoying themselves? Off DJ BLKLUOS’Stranko” project, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @IAmCashBilz x @TrooSkiSGC – Bulls*** (Prod. by @SOULOnlineNet)


CashBDropping bars on the block is the duo of New York Rappers Cash Bilz and Troo. Titled “Bulls***“, this SOUL produced track was directed by Benny G and it shows Cash Bilz and the gang making stops on the block, hitting up the corner store and dropping lyrics where they’re urging the NY DJs to play their music, Hip Hop being a lifestyle, how dope they can be when they hit the booth, and getting at the new rappers who promote trash music. A good effort here and SOUL’s production along with the Big L sample complimented Cash and Troo’s lyrics and delivery. Shade Gang Crazy, put them on the radio Flex, Envy, Clue and even KaySlay. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
