It’s another Summer, and it’s time for the Pool Parties, new fashion, new destinations, and for those in School, freedom from the books for a while. For others, it’s a time to discover new music, and we’ll gladly help you in discovering new Artists. We advise you to get proper headphones, great speakers, money for tickets and audio purchases, and the mindset to fully enjoy the music. Here are 15 Artists to watch out for this Summer!
*These Artists are not ranked in any way
With a few years in the game, Florida based Recording Artist Khxos (formerly Khaos) has been releasing Dancehall tunes and gaining attention thanks to Social Media. He received a buzz that started to bubble in Summer 2015 thanks to the release of “One Touch”. Summer 2016 kept the ball rolling with his debut EP “Deception”, but collaborations with Andrew Trabass, Chargii, and Lincoln 3Dot helped to keep it blazing for the rest of the year. Early 2017 however saw his name change, and the release of “So Loud” and “BOMM” propelled him as one to watch this Summer as he prepares to release his debut Album, “Dopamine”.
2. Royal Blu
They don’t call him “El Fuego” for nothing, his music keeps you on your toes, and his lyrics hit like the hot oil from frying Plantains. This Artist has been quietly making his way onto the scene and has made appearances from “New Wave” to “Live From Kingston: Class 2016”, to “Imprint” to Protoje’s “For The Culture” event. His collaborations with the likes of Lila Ike, Runkus, and Leno Banton have received numerous hits on Soundcloud, and he hits the road (or Air) with Runkus as a part of the “Class Is In” European Tour and a stop at the German Summerjam this Summer!
This Songstress came as a surprise this year with the release of her debut single, “So Shy”. Known as “The First Lady Of REM”, she followed up with a freestyle (Believe In You), and a follow up single titled “The Cycle”. She has also made appearances on “Smile Jamaica”, “New Wave”, “Speak”, and “7 am In Kingston”. Yanah is currently working follow up singles, and makes an appearance near you this Summer!
We have featured his work, recently reviewed his “Savage” EP and now it’s time to personally introduce you to the Hip Hop enthusiast that goes by the name, Daley. Some of you may have recently known him as Tazz or even Dalai of the “High Tunez Gang” and “KMT“, but he is the one same original Montego Bay native now making a name for himself in South Florida. Now on the verge of releasing a followup to his 2016 project, let’s kick things into a higher gear with our first Interview with an Artist living completely outside the Jamaican space!
13thStreetPromotions: For starters, tell us a little about yourself. A grand introduction is always necessary to get our viewers super-hyped.
13thSP: You’ve been on the music scene for quite a while as you’ve started out with a group called the “High Tunez Gang”, is that correct? Tell us a bit more about how you got your start on the scene.
It’s taken me a little while to get around to checking this project out but i’m finally hip. First Coast Jamaica describes aficionados like myself who are obsessed with paving the way for an underground movement which clamors for a mainstream boost.

The seamless Introduction to the project features the alluring vocal essence of Rosh. “One time for your mind..” is the message invoking a mindful meditation wherein listeners are asked to sit back listen and enjoy for the next 28mins~ Success, wealth and health for all.
- CITY SAVAGE
Clever metaphors and punchlines; sonics are on point too as we jump right in. Get used to the sound of Daley as his entire flow is switched up. At this point, I’ve made up my mind to refrain myself from too much comparisons. As we know, Mobay is the city Daley reps; I want to assume, however, that living in Pembroke Pines has had some influence on the Rapper’s creative experience. MoulaUE’s booming rhymes and OneLoveTheo final verse reminds us that we have got to keep it savage. This is the ultimate rule and trap culture is reiterated.
As an audiophile, I always love when Artists choose singles that will get me hype. This is what made me interested in giving the project a listen. From the Instrumental to the energy presented here, I’m hardly regretting my decision to compare Daley to some one else. The mystery box that is First Coast Jamaica is that just as it in every other corner of the world, you never know what you will find. Ignite allows me to experience the full versatility of Daley, solely. Don’t care how you feel about it, this joint slaps.
After hitting listeners with a few singles and Freestyles, Montego Bay/Florida based Rapper Tazz delivers his “Savage” EP! Featuring 8 tracks, Tazz gives listeners a look into his world, and his trials and tribulations as he aims to be one of the greats from the Island of Jamaica. While many are unfamiliar with the Mobay Hip Hop Movement, may this project (and others from MoulaUE, Dreggae, and Slim I.D.) offer a glimpse into the booming scene. With features from MoulaUE, Kans, OneLoveTheo, Rosh, Kingsley, and Production from Run C.T., Omito Beats, Taylor King, Stimp C, J!ngo, RockstarEnt, and Dopant Beats, prepare for an awesome listening experience and witness the rise of Jamaica’s Hip Hop Movement.

With Tazz’s “Savage SZN” seeing a June 18th release date, he recently teamed up with fellow High Tunez Gang member Kans for “oVa Here“. Produced by Taylor King, Tazz brings the energy down a little on this one as he cruises over a smooth Production and reps his team while Kans keeps it locked and loaded in the passenger seat. With a series of Freestyles and collaborations lately, Tazz continues to rep for Montego Bay’s Hip Hop Movement and with “Savage SZN” on the horizon, he aims to get more ears open to the HTG sound.
