DJ/Producer Calvin Harris is readying the release of the follow up to his successful “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1“! This new project promises to bring even more hits for you to groove to. Setting off the roll out with him is PARTYNEXTDOOR with the single, “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready“. Featuring PARTY channeling some of his Jamaican side, he breaks out the patois while dishing lyrics about not settling down, not being ready to have a family, and enjoying the offerings from the bachelor life. Too too sweet. With production that gets you moving, and a video to match, how are you feeling it so far? Stay strapped up, and watch below!
Canada based Rapper Solyd Roy says “No more parties in JA” as he drops a new tune! Titled “Nuttin’ Good“, this is produced by K, Le Maestro and finds the Rapper being a terrible role model all while picking up the pace and having fun on this sample driven beat. If aren’t familiar with Solyd, we featured one of his tracks, “Cruff Daddy” last year. With an EP in the making, you might be hearing him more in the near future. A remix to this track would be fire though. Cover art by ShotByDeth. Whether you’re a goody two shoes, or a good for nothing individual, treat your ears to this below!
The “World Boss” is really living up his role as one of the hardest working Deejays despite his current situation. Earlier, the good folks at Major Lazer unleashed a special remix of the Nicki Minaj and PartyNextDoor featured “Run Up” with vocals from Vybz Kartel! Kicking it off with “Gaza Nation!“, Kartel goes into overdrive as he gives the ladies the lyrics that will have them clinging on to him like magnet to steel. He also made reference to having fun at the popular Summer Party series, Dream Weekend. A single that has had its share of remixes (including a Konshens Remix, and one by Dancehall Artist Khxos), but of course a Vybz Kartel version will make its rounds in various parties. Mi chain have so much Karat (Carrot), like me murda Bugs Bunny! Listen to the track below.
Music genres, nations, and personalities clashed in the latest staging of the Red Bull Culture Clash on August 25! Held today at 787 Windsor in Atlanta, Georgia, we got to witness the clash of a few titans in numerous rounds of “Tune fi tune, dub fi dub” Sound System sparring. Featuring “Team Unruly” which was lead by Dancehall Artist Popcaan (who was unfortunately absent), “Disturbing LDN” which was lead by Recording Artist Tinie Tempah, “Enjoy Life” which was lead by Producer WondaGurl, and “Ear Drummers” which was lead by Producer MikeWillMadeIt. Lots of surprises and upsets in this session, but if you missed it, don’t worry! Check out the repeat below, and enjoy!
This feels like Vacation music complete with fancy liquor and an exotic location! The last time we heard Rapper Busta Rhymes tap into his Jamaican side was when he collaborated with Spice was on “So Mi Like It (Remix)“, and with Vybz Kartel on “Twerk It (Remix)“. Well today, he teams up again with the latter and Canadian Recording Artist Tory Lanez on “Girlfriend”(Get your copy here). Produced by Rockwilder who tears roofs off with his beats, Busta shows us why his musical career has spanned 20 years as he fires off another banger! Adding Patois to his lyrics, and speaking on bringing his Girlfriend to meet his “Mada down a country“, Busta delivers effortlessly. With the “World Boss” and “Fargo” adding their brand of dopeness to the track, this promises to burn up the airwaves, and flow through every headphone and speaker for the rest of 2017 worldwide! Good to hear Vybz Kartel on another International track despite his current situation, and Tory using his Caribbean influences. This is for all the ladies with the sundresses, the short shorts, the mini skirts, and the leggings on now! Fawud babes! Bounce to this by checking out the track below.
