E-Dee, the Dancehall Celebrity – Elevate Album

E-Dee, the Dancehall Celebrity - Elevate Album

E-Dee, the Dancehall Celebrity, has released his latest full length album Elevate.

Out today and bursting with hooks, the 16 song CD and digital release boasts a fire collection of singles alongside new unreleased songs like the latest single “Every Time I See You” to which the music video drops simultaneously with the album.

The album brings classic vibes of 90’s and 2000’s dancehall, party vibes, full of bedroom bravado, aggressive swaggering club tracks, as well as conscious roots reggae. The free-wheeling sing-jay specializes in light hearted fun, with all of the charm of a Jamaican country boy living in Hollywood.

Everton’s vocal flexibility and range comes from the depth of his personality, which is mostly a ladies man, but at the same time a badman. Some songs he delivers high strong singing melodies, others he brings a low deep booming tone. E-Dee’s ability to deliver high energy party vibes alongside strong roots songs is a combination he has maintained since his early career.

Lyrics and songs on the new album paint the picture of what its like to be a dancehall celebrity in Hollywood, living “lifestlyes of the rich and reckless, champagne showers and sex for breakfast” quoting “Needed Me”. Love, the pursuit of women, and party vibes are what one might expect for a dancehall artist, but like all great artists, E-Dee’s music reflects the times. On the deeper songs from Elevate Everton delivers strong roots numbers that tackle systemic oppression in his collaborations with the legendary Glen Washington “Where I Belong”, and “Ghetto Yutes Rise” with I-Octane, as well as his hit song with Irie Love, “Revolution”

E-Dee has a disarming ability to be aggressive yet charming, sweet, but a badman. And a badman still has feelings. Maybe a sentimental rude boy that wants to change the world is exactly what dancehall needs right now. Collaborations on the album with Future Fambo, and Wayne Wonder are also big standouts.

Produced by his long time collaborator, Grammy-Award winner Qmillion, the album released by Unseen Lab Recordings is available at all media outlets now. E-Dee is lining up shows for the summer and fall in support of his new release.

UTG (Likkle Vybz & Likkle Addi) – Team Different

UTG (Likkle Vybz & Likkle Addi) - Team Different

Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi’s New Album Is Bold, Deep and Lighthearted All In One Smooth Thirteen Track Body

The two young stars and sons of the iconic Vybz Kartel, are the best they’ve ever been on this new album titled “Team Different”. The album which features the lead single Euphoric Love, a time tested tale of love and romance, is slated for release May 6th, when it will be available for purchase and streaming everywhere music is sold and streamed. With this effort the duo has distinguished themselves within the dancehall space, which is no small task when the most influential dancehall artist is the head of your household. With “Team Different”, Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi make an incredibly strong case for their own respect and appreciation as great artists in the Jamaican music space.

Originally bursting onto the scene in 2014 under the moniker PG13, this duo has weathered the storm that is fame from an early age. With singles like Hello Daddy, Gimme Di Money, Radio and more, the world got its first few experiences with this duo of dancehall royalty. While the duo has performed exceptionally on home team projects like Dancehall Royalty, To Tanesha, Dons and Diva and several other riddims, they excel on their own projects. The Skinny Jeans EP released in February 2020, is perhaps the most ideal example of this, with the lead single Skinny Jeans going on to become one of the featured songs in the famous video game franchise, Grand Theft Auto. While they both inherited the ability to compose great lyrics from their father, they have advanced themselves through learning musical instruments and the business of music, making them more rounded than even their Vybz Kartel himself.

This new album, released via ONErpm, in many ways exudes that resolved maturity that we can hear in their most recent interviews with The Star and DancehallMag and Urban Island. Team Different is set for release under the duo’s own UTG(Uptown Gaza label) and includes tracks like Luxury, Miss World Renown, and even title track Team Different, all produced in-house at UTG. Not only are Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi pushing the limits of what they have done before musically, but they also remain as topical as their father. The second season of a recent romance drama television series on Netflix named Euphoria has been capturing the world since its release in January and the duo has tapped into that public conversation about love with this single. Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi are both crafty in their lyrics and bold in their melodies, which makes for a great listening experience. The content of the song is also very subversive, rather than the emo cold hearted modern male archetype that is common in music from their peers, the duo steer toward a more emotionally secure and sensitive depiction. This is a sentiment echoed throughout not just Euphoric Love but the entire album as a whole. Their approach and subject matter on this album are unique, without copying or catering to what is popular. The duo stands out, easily giving the name Team Different another layer of meaning.

Wally Kyat – Where We From

Wally Kyat - Where We From

Where We From?
When asked this question the response of many tend to be the neighborhood where they grew up, a place that’s molded them to who they are today. Regardless of the geographical location, what rings true is that through life’s experiences, many of us are connected and share similar memories. “Where We from”, the debut album of Virgin Islands recording artist Wally Kyat, has eleven tracks that lends insight to those experiences, whether personal or relative from the outside looking in. With a sound centered around Reggae and Dancehall, subtle influences from R&B, Soca and Afro beats is also evident throughout. “Where We From” is an accurate representation of the Melting Pot that is the Virgin Islands in itself.
 
The album opens with the title track “Where We From” as it encourages listeners to accompany Wally Kyat on a journey of his childhood. A childhood that may not seem very ideal for any young adolescent to grow in but as stated in the song “even though we’re bad, this is the place where I love…. Virgin Islands grow meh, got to show meh love”.

“Where We From” also includes two features on the album from international recording artists. The first one “Poison Love” features GT Queen recording artist from Guyana, Timeka Marshall. This tracks speaks on a being intertwined in a love that is toxic and hard to let go and centers around the idea that “The hardest thing to resist is that thing that isn’t good for you”. The next feature track “Feelings” features international recording reggae artist Pressure Busspipe. This track touches a side of Wally Kyat that has never been seen before and expresses an intimate experience shared with a woman in his life.
 
The album closes off with a song titled “More Life” which expresses giving thanks in everything you do as we go through our individual walks of life. “Where We From” has something that everyone can relate to and is now available on all streaming platforms.
