He is the “Fire Starter“, the “King of Fire“, “The Prophet“, “King Shango“, and the “Fire Man“, but we also know him as Jamaican music Icon, Capleton! Celebrating his 52nd birthday today, the “Fire Man” has definitely worked his way up to becoming one of legends in Jamaican music. From his early starts as a Dancehall Artist, to making a name for himself as a Def Jam signee, to dominating Reggae music later, the decades have been good to him. Today, we salute his great works with “The Ever Blazing Capleton Playlist“! Featuring hours of hits, you can’t go wrong with some fire in your life. What’s your favourite song from him? Bless up Capleton on his Earthday!
Today we remember and celebrate the life and work of one of Jamaica’s most iconic Vocalists, the late Garnet Smith a.k.a. Garnett Silk! With April 2 marking his 53rd birthday, many would agree that the world lost this great Artist too soon. In true Blog fashion, we highlight some of his many hits in our latest Playlist titled, “Garnett Silk: Hatfield Legend“!
With nearly 3 hours worth of music, even if you weren’t familiar with his entire catalogue, this will cover some of his finest selections and even a couple collaborations. (Editor’s note: For those questioning the “Hatfield Legend” title, he was raised in Hatfield, Manchester, and has left a huge impact on the community decades after his death.) An Artist who has not only brought a different sound to Reggae, but has influenced Artists after him and many idolize him in various communities worldwide. Walk good Bimbo!
