Funk Butcher & Shea Soul 'Pull Me Close'

Brought to you by UK funky DJ/producer @FunkButcher, features the soulful vocals from Shea Soul (appeared on last year's smash Make It Funky For Me by Attaca Pesante) on this seductive UK Funky banger.

I can just see it now; the anti-social UK Funky females 2-stepping in circles around the room with their female friends, while the mandem dance in their own circle holding each others shoulders, gazing into each others eyes and all the other weird stuff that goes on when UK funky's played. I'll be the dude by the wall/edge of the dancing circle, tapping my feet, nodding my head with a glass of Lemonade taking in the vibes until the bashment comes on. Ladies need to let a man dance with them to a song like this. This way less men will fight. Idle minds in a club filled with gym-going, uni loan balling dudes, draped Gucci, drinking water/apple juice from Hennesy/Grey Goose/champagne bottles, topped off with anti-social females is a recipee for disaster. Bring back turn around dances where women have to ask men for dances then get prizes.

Good to hear UK funky returning to female vocalists, the sound that got the scenes initial popularity before the hooligans raided it so they could go out and buy Gucci hats, belts and scarves from PA money to wear with... well, just about anything. They've all gone missing now. I personally never said they would disappear, or did I? *coughs last paragraph coughs*

Big up Funk Butcher. I'm still waiting for I'm Happs volume 2 with B Live. Volume 1 is honestly one of 2 UK funky/house CD that gets played when I wanna hear funky. In fact, it's one of the only mix CD's, any genre, I play so long (almost a year) after getting it.

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
