Sneakbo ft. Mavado - Warn Them

Once again, Sneakbo on a dancehall riddim. He's making a fair few of these and I love it. Sneakbo has the streets on smash right now. Big him up all day.

All the punks that don't usually blog or care about dancehall are fully on him. Sort of thing that annoys me about the music industry, its just bandwagons. The amount of times I've had convo's about tunes that if it has a familiar face on it "That tune's sick", if it doesn't they don't have no time for it. This is why I say the music game is all smoke and mirrors. And it doesn't help that the so-called "real" dancehall DJs don't play these tunes.

I featured the Gully Bomb in it's original form last year on a mix CD I made. It was just my favourite tunes 'til that point but it sounds more like a best of 2010 that was made in about October. Sick CD if I do say so myself. Catch the download from here

These two tunes on the riddim are big as well

T'Nez & 3 Star - No More Tears ("Me nah gwaan like mi nuh like mi life/ Man ah survivor so we ah fight di fight... No more tears inna mumma eye fi cry")

Bugle - There For You ("Real friend is always there for you/ Them nah stop care fi you")

Dancehall Takeover will not be televised, but you can guarantee it will be right here on Marvin Sparks dot blogspot dot com. RIP the half-Jamaican Gil Scott-Heron

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
