Recently, we at 13thStreetPromotions had the opportunity to listen to an early copy of Dancehall Artist Khaos’ “Deception EP”. With today being the day of the project’s release, we present to you the review! – SwadeDaVillain
Words By @Sef_Jo
- One Fuck
The original. Khaos made this into a household name and it continues to beat the streets hard. As a true “trapskull”, I have to admit that I wasn’t 100% sold on “One Fuck” after its initial release. Worse, when I heard “Make Love” [after One Fuck was released as a single] and even more recently, “Don’t Remix”. What had me completely stunned though was the reception of “One Fuck” by Khaos’ core fan base. The Deception EP’s leading single is literally a social sensation that has had much of its impact on and throughout the Jamaican Twitter community. There are threads upon threads related to the hashtag #OneFuck and for that reason, I have come to understand what makes “One Fuck” successful as a single, in and of itself. With a clean version available, Khaos has been able to market the track to hardcore fans as well as to DJs [local + international] for radio spins.
- Search Fi Love
Now this… connected with me on a more personal level and just like with “One Fuck” it took me a good couple listens to fully wrap my head around the concept. I am not unfamiliar with the actual “Search For Love” but let’s discuss the immediate switch up; though the drum kit [rhythm] remains similar to the previous track, there is the sound of a harp that strikingly contrasts the way Khaos lets us know that he is in no way, shape or form interested in falling for his “One Fuck”. The contrast here depicts how sweet her touch was/is but Khaos shakes us [listeners] back to reality, this is Deception!
Releasing another single off his debut, “The Initiative” is Rapper Slim I.D. Titled “Black Supremacy” and produced by Javi, Slim speaks on his dreams to achieve plenty as a black man, reflecting on what black people went through, and his ambitions to be “Black and Rich“. Slim I.D. has been bringing his product to the world and you can own a piece of it by purchasing “The Initiative” off iTunes, Amazon, Google Music, and keeping the project on repeat on Spotify and Tidal.

Canadian based music group, Konsequence Music continues to dominate 2015, this time with the release of the “True Colours Riddim”. The project featured artistes such as Jahmiel, Andre Shepherd, Vershon, 3 Star, Quick Cook, Jae Prynce and many more. The label reached out to Jahmiel for the song “True Colours” and Andre Shepherd for his song “Covered”, arguably two of Jamaica’s finest vocalists, who have delivered superbly.
True Colours Riddim is an upbeat one, and got its name from Jahmiel’s song of that same name. The Riddim has received great reviews since its release both locally and internationally. The songs are available for purchase on all digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby, Amazon Music and Google Play. The difference with this project is the universal message that it is sending out that everyone and anyone can relate to.
Andre Shepherd has this to say about his song “Covered”, “The song speaks to everyone. We all can relate to the song and most importantly it affirms the fact throughout whatever we are going through, we are all covered by the most high. The music is upbeat and creates a spirit of hope and this song encourages us to always be optimistic and proactive.” Jahmiel is also very pleased with the song and anticipates that it will be a success. “I have no doubt that this entire project will be successful. So far I have been getting a lot of positive feedback from this song and I know it can only better from here.”
CEO of Konsequence Music, Mr. Peart says that he hopes to get the company and the Riddim the much deserved attention with this project. The Label has put out quite a number of notable songs since its inception including Versatile’s “Work Flow”, the “Summa Escape Riddim”, Jah Vinci’s “Be Strong”, Exco Levi’s “If You Wanna Leave”, Melloquence’s “Beautiful Distraction” and Khago’s “Nuh Fi Legalize.”
For the rest of the year Konsequence Music will be busy working on numerous projects for their growing fan base.
