Monday Mood

New tune: Shy FX ft Donaeo - Raver (Guinness Punch remix)

Can't comment on the lyrics cos I can't understand what he's saying. His vocals are tight though. And the foundation dub sound? Well, can't lose can it.

Current repetition: Black Uhuru 'Shine Eye Gal'

Related to dub song above, I've been in a Black Uhuru mood since mum ordered their greatest hits off Amazon (if Amazon wanna give me some discount for the plug just email me).

But yeah, the bass on this takes me to one next planet.

Benny Banks Warm Up Session

Yeah, so I took a minute to finally watch all the Warm Up Sessions over on "Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Ess bee, tee vee-ee-eee" Can I just say, if you use the internet, live in the UK, have an interest in music but don't know about SBTV, I can't rate you. It weirds me every time someone's baffled.

Back on track, this yout' goes innnn! UK rap > US sh*t! (apart from J. Cole. Big Sean's alright).

Dynamo playing tricks on me

Well indirectly me, via Tinie Tempah. Seen this magician live in my eyes a few times. Every time, I've stood there with a :S look on my face. "How the HELL did he do that?!" are usually my thoughts as I stand closely watching to see whether he puts cards up his sleeve or distracts me then puts something into his "invisible" pocket.

Watch him do some tricks on Tinie Tempah. I think I've worked out the first one, but hold tight the juju on the CD cover bit. Absolutely fu-hucked!

Hold tight Twin B: "Oh my good gawsh!" Nah, not that Twin B, the other Twin B. Technically he should be Twin BC whilst his brother Twin BX. I think I'm gonna pitch that idea to them

Speaking of Tinie Tempah...

Tinchy Stryder limps in outside of top 20

I'm not a dude to say "I told you so" so I won't. However, "I blogged you so" isn't the same thing. "I wonder, has the game moved on from this... " is how what I said of Second Chance. I didn't outright say it cos I ain't badmind and I wish man the best but the truth is the truth.

p.s. I also got this right about Labrinth, Talay Riley and Labrinth as quoted on the BBC

Ethnic names

Saw this article posted on Twitter the other day, thought it was quite interesting. I included this in a post the other day about top 10 popular names. I still don't see a problem in naming your kid "an ethnic" (black) name, this article shows the problem is with other people. In case you never knew, I an' I just does I an' I. I set the order.

Pow yeah I'm Lethal da B! Pow twenty on-e on-e

So that lyric needs work (too many syllables). Hear what though, I'm getting gassed watching Lethal B talking about it. It's reality, there will be a Pow! 2011. So far, Kano and Chipmunk are confirmed. Wiley said he's down for it originally, but Wiley changes his mind more than the English weather or a dutty skettel changes her bedsheets. JME and Ghetts also feature on there. Please don't let this disappoint

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
