Freddy V Jason Riddim – Various Artists

Freddy V Jason Riddim - Various Artists

The Freddy v Jason Riddim is one of the most highly anticipated Riddim of the Year. The Compilation brought to you by the great minds of Gramma & Ryan encompasses a “Halloween concept” depicting enemies (Freddy & Jason) going at each other, hence the abundance of Rivals that feature on the Riddim. The Compilation is the first in a long time to feature artists from rival factions in DANCEHALL such as Yeng-Badness, Gaza, Wildside Govament, The 6six Camp, LodgeCult, Stingas & a host of talented young artists who took the opportunity to showcase their talent and provide a balance of symmetry on the Compilation. Just put on your Iphone or music device and just “press play” as you will enjoy this Album from the very first song to 28. Every track is a hit in my opinion. Lets motivate the industry to bring back Riddim juggling, it was so essential to the growth of Dancehall and as a result Dancehall is left in a dire predicament.

Raiah – Pick It Up

Raiah - Pick It Up

Music can be learned and sometimes you’re just born with it in your DNA. So when the opportunity arose to travel around the world with his father and uncles of multi GRAMMY Award winning group Morgan Heritage, he didn’t hesitate to take the exciting journey that surprisingly lead to him being inspired to become Raiah. The next in line of the 3rd generation of Morgan’s determined to become an artist and join the family legacy.

Born Seraiah Rajkumar-Morgan, music has always been the answer to his rollercoaster life. Falling in love with the drums at the tender age of 2, his passion for music grew immensely over the years by way of his family’s love for Reggae and Gospel music. With his roots hailing from Jamaica as well as Trinidad and Tobago, Raiah was born in Brooklyn, NY. Raiah was raised in a variety of places giving him what one could call a colorful upbringing. These cities exposed him to cultural, ethnic and social diversity in the cities of Cleveland, OH, Atlanta, GA, and Orlando, FL. In large part, this diversity has broadened his horizon and gave him a chance to learn different ways of life. All while injecting his soul with the uplifting music that was being played everyday at home.

In 2016, during his sophomore year of college, Raiah began experimenting with music programs on is iPhone, which led to him creating his own production company Brooklyn Made Beatz. After 3 dedicated years of crafting a signature sound, he then started writing songs. One day his computer began to breakdown, which ultimately brought his ability to make beats to a full stop. Scrolling through Beatstars’ platform he found the beats for songs such as “Pick It Up” which he recorded on Apple headphones in his mother’s car. Thus the artist Raiah was born! His music consists of sounds stemming from the genres of Dancehall, Afrobeats, as well as Hip-Hop. Though Raiah grew up between 2 households, the commonality was that Raiah was instilled with great moral teachings, as well as a musical environment and spirituality. Maintaining a faithful outlook on life combined with a holistic lifestyle; are just 2 factors that inspire Raiah’s lyrics. In a world filled with adversity and unexpected challenges, he feels there is a lacking of some of life’s basic principals especially amongst his generation. Raiah would like to use his music to help his peers operate at their full potential and realize their purpose in life sooner than later. Positivity, love, and motivation are all values that Raiah hopes to spread globally as he embarks on his own journey to fulfillment.

Dancehall Anthems – Kabaka Pyramid – Agent Sasco – Bugle

Dancehall Anthems - Kabaka Pyramid - Agent Sasco - Bugle

VP Records releases Dancehall Anthems, a set of new recordings that paints a 2020 portrait of classic Reggae and Dancehall Anthems from the golden era of the 70’s and 90’s. This project brings fresh perspectives and voices to timeless classics. Some of the compositions have a storied history with VP Records and others are meaningful to the genre.

The album, produced by veteran dancehall producer Jeremy Harding, features Kabaka Pyramid, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, Agent Sasco, Wayne Marshall, Ikaya, Ginjah, Runkus, Blvk H3ro, Bugle, Royal Blu, Naomi Cowan, and Kumar, taking on classic material from Yellowman, Michigan & Smiley, Ken Boothe, Tenor Saw, Papa San, Louie Culture, and others.

“Originally, this was going to be a VP Records 40th anniversary project, but it expanded, as I wanted to pay tribute to the history of dancehall in the broadest sense, reconsidering iconic songs and particularly the roots of the genre, including what played heavily on Soundsystems when I was growing up. I wanted to give the artists, new and veterans, the chance to put their spin on these classics,” said producer Harding.

The first tracks released from the album included Beenie Man’s “Mad Kings,” his update of Yellowman’s “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng.” This was followed by Kabaka Pyramid’s exceptional interpretation of Michigan & Smiley’s “Nice Up The Dance,” followed by Wayne Marshall’s tribute to Tenor Saw’s “Lots Of Sign,” and Runkus’s ode to Papa San’s “Strange.”

While the album features a variety of straight ahead covers, it also includes creative adaptions such as Sean Paul’s “Marijuana Mi Love,” based on Tiger’s “No Puppy Love,” featuring all new lyrics.

In addition to “Who Am I,” Jeremy Harding is known for Mr. Vegas’s “Nike Air” and Sean Paul’s “Infiltrate” (all on the Playground Riddim); and Elephant Man’s “Log On” and Tanto Metro and Devonte’s “Give It To Her” (both on the Liquid Riddim). Harding was Sean Paul’s manager through the apex of his career and produced three tracks on the platinum Dutty Rock album, the biggest selling title in VP Records’ history. More recently Harding produced “Heaven” for Jah9, found on her Note To Self album.

Harding has been a prominent guest on Jamaican television and other media platforms in recent years, giving his take on industry trends. He is known as one of the most innovative dancehall producers of the 1990s, helping to usher in a new era of music production in Jamaica as an early adopter of ProTools software now industry standards, as well as the still controversial Auto-Tune plug-in. He is one of the first examples of a DJ-turned-producer, now a standard music industry path, having started in college radio while studying at McGill University. He is a trained guitarist and has degrees from the Royal School Of Music London and Trebas Institute and is adjunct faculty in Reggae Studies at the University of the West Indies.
