Massive B’s Bobby Konders teams up yet again with Dancehall icon Vybz Kartel, accompanied by Lisa Mercedes and Sikka Rymes for “Badman”. The record continues the Brooklyn drill sound that has taken the country by storm beginning in 2019. “Badman” is the first release following the recent partnership between Massive B and Ineffable Records, based out of Oakland, California.

“Badman” begins with a short monologue by Vybz Kartel paying his respects to the late Pop Smoke. Throughout the song Vybz Kartel and company reminds us of the reality of the streets alongside the trials and tribulations that come with living said lifestyle. With the tracks gliding bass, and raw grunge sound the trio takes listeners on a musical journey very reminiscent of Gotham City.

The track, a fusion of dancehall, afrobeats and EDM sounds which takes lyrical inspiration from reggae classics by Black Uhuru and Baby Cham, is the first single from Mr Eazi’s Something Else EP out in October.

“This record was really fun to make,” Mr Eazi says, “and it’s crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again, to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And Walshy hitting me up to say it’s a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making and I can’t wait to perform it at my next festival!”

Hache – KillyDem – Gully One EP

Hache - KillyDem - Gully One EP

2019 was a busy year for Hache who released his debut EP “Gully One”. The EP featured single releases including Gully One (GRM Daily) and Seasoning (Link Up TV), accompanied by freestyle on Mixtape Madness. Killydem is the final drop for the Gully One EP before Hache moves into EP two, which is set to take him on a new journey not just within UK Dancehall and Rap, but with elements of Drum&Bass infused too, plus some heavyweight features. For his debut EP, Hache has joined forces with south London producer JR James to tell the story of his early years growing up in Jamaica. Being born in Spanish Town and raised Saint Catherine meant Hache grew up with Dancehall and Reggae as his foundation. Coming to England aged seven and living in south London then saw him fall in love with U.K culture – in particular grime and rap music, but never forgetting his roots and where he came from, as reflected in the “Gully One” EP. Gully One represents where is from and is a fusion of U.K slang and Jamaican patios. “Gully” has been referred too as being “sick” or “cool”, something he has enthused over the years as the cool-kid of his ends, always in the latest fits and putting his peers onto the latest hits. Gully One EP has so far been supported by BBC Radio 1Xtra as a Record of the week on the station and a Weekend Anthem, it has had plays from MistaJam, Twin B, Seani B and Sian Anderson to name a few. It has received plays from Rellik and Joe Walker at Reprezent Radio, been picked in the “Best New Song In The World” feature by Julie Adenuga on Beats 1, had support from Ras Kwame at Capital Xtra and love at Pulse FM with Cookie Dough, and Rinse FM with Chris Da Capo and Jamie Rodigan. His debut EP also saw him frequent popular shows for performances in 2019 such as Fusion, Big Chill and Wray Takeover as well as perform at events at popular London clubs such as Oval Space, Brixton Jamm and Temple Bar.

Daddy1 – Pretty Pon Snap – 1 Bro Gad EP

Daddy1 - Pretty Pon Snap - 1 Bro Gad EP

New York, NY- Dancehall artist Daddy1 has released his first studio EP, “1 Bro Gad” on VP Records, out today. Following the single “Rich” which premiered on FADER in March, the artist is ready to make waves with new single “Pretty Pon Snap”. Also, released this week is an exclusive documentary, narrated by BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Seani B, which serves as a proper introduction to the world of Daddy1 in a formal context.

Daddy1 is the youngest member of Montego Bay’s “6ixx” Crew who are taking the dancehall scene by storm with a constant stream of “Trap Dancehall” hits. The 6 track EP shows his range from party music like “Rich”, female anthems like “Pretty Pon Snap” to thoughtful music like “Ghetto Youth” but overall the entire EP conveys positivity and joy. Even more unique, the dancehall artist does not swear in his music, “No, I don’t use curse words in my songs. I’m trying to show the youths that you don’t need to be bad, you need to be making money. We don’t need anymore bodies. So I don’t give them any form of curse words in my music,” he told FADER.

Born as Adrian Daley in 2000 in the Salt Spring community in Montego Bay, Daddy1 was the eldest of four children for a single mother. This charismatic young dreamer earned his alias by becoming the next best patriarchal figure in his household, and was dubbed Daddy1 from then on. His life story and his ascension to musical prominence, are but the result of the undeniable agency, penchant for leadership and self contained mindset that awarded him his pseudonym in the first place. These qualities in him shined the most in those early days and earned him the respect of childhood friend Bobby Six, younger brother of Dancehall superstar Squash. This friendship led to a fellowship between himself and Squash that eventually grew into a family connection that would persist throughout the years.

When asked what to expect on the EP, Daddy told FADER, “Expect to hear everything. Trap vibes, Party vibes, everything. It’s Daddy1 trust me, you are going to like this one.”
