Welcome to Jamrock Spotlight: Kabaka Pyramid

February 11, 2018

Ok kids, here we go with the second artist spotlight for the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise (which just sold out in less than two months!). The Reggae Revival movement consists of many artists, but the most established ones, which I call the “Big Five” are Chronixx, Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid, Jah9 and Jesse Royal (so […]

Tribal Seeds (ft. Protoje) – Gunsmoke

February 7, 2018

Dropping a quick post today with this track I just found from a group called the Tribal Seeds. I’ve seen their name around the reggae festival circuit (mainly in California), but never paid them much attention. Well, when you feature my favourite reggae artist on your track, you successfully get my attention! As you can […]

Damian Marley – Stony Hill

January 25, 2018

As some of you may know, I will finally be going on the Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise this year (December 1st to 6th, 2018). I will be lucky enough to be joined by some family and friends, and there has been a request to highlight some of the artists that will be on the […]

Havana Meets Kingston – Mista Savona

December 2, 2017

I’m very excited to be sharing this new musical discovery with TickuTalk readers. It’s actually a project called “Havana Meets Kingston” by an Australian producer named Mista Savona. I heard about this initiative last year, but lost track of it at some point. The project consists of a full album that was released last month, […]

Kokoroko Afrobeat Collective – Colonial Mentality

November 11, 2017

In my last post, I introduced the concept behind Sofar Sounds, and that is where I discovered this gem of a performance by the Kokoroko Afrobeat Collective. Afrobeat is a genre that originated in the 1970’s and it is blend of West African music along with soul, funk, and jazz. The term was coined by […]

Sistah Awa – See Dem Fall

October 24, 2017

While mucking about on YouTube a few days ago, I came across a fantastic artist named Sistah Awa. However, before I share the song I found, I want to talk a little bit about the company behind the production of the video. The video starts with the logo of Sofar Sounds, which is an acronym […]

Samory I – Black Gold

October 20, 2017

A few months ago, Damian Marley finalized the release date for his new album titled “Stony Hill”. I was super excited for this July release, and as the countdown continued, I was already anticipating having the album on constant repeat. Little did I realize that it would only be my second favorite album to drop […]

The Frightnrs – Nothing More To Say

July 30, 2017

This was supposed to be the first post of 2017, but the more I listened to The Frightnrs, the more I realized how special they were. Initially, I was just going to post the first single of theirs that I heard. Instead, I really sunk my teeth into the album as a whole. All of […]

Shanty – Happy To Be Sad

July 30, 2017

Shanty just released a new single called “Happy To Be Sad” from their upcoming EP. The title of the EP is “Strange Little Human” and it’s set for release on March 24th. Shanty has already started touring in the UK to support the release of the EP, although I don’t think they have any plans […]

Too Many Zooz – Shape of You

July 30, 2017

So we are less than a month away from the Too Many Zooz show in Toronto, and I’m starting to get very excited. I’ve been revisiting their discography as the anticipation builds, and as luck would have it, they just dropped a new track this past Friday. It’s a cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of […]
