Sara Lugo – Really Like You (feat. Protoje)

October 31, 2014

Happy Friday everyone!  Found a great new track that will hopefully brighten up this miserable rainy day for you.  The artist’s name is Sara Lugo, and this song is off her new album called “Hit Me With Music”.  I stumbled upon it while looking for some Protoje videos, and was instantly hooked.  Sara infuses this […]

Mungo’s Hi Fi – Boom (feat. Solo Banton)

October 23, 2014

New track from Mungo’s Hi Fi has a nostalgic 80’s dancehall vibe to it that I think is great.  I’m starting to see Solo Banton featured on more and more tracks, and I like his style.

Protoje – Stylin’

October 22, 2014

The latest single from Protoje’s upcoming album called “Ancient Future” just dropped less than an hour ago and has the scoop for you!  The track is called “Stylin’”, and I’m hoping he will play this and some other new material at his concert in Miami on Sunday.  Check it out and enjoy!

Damian Marley – Hard Work

October 21, 2014

Here’s a new single from Damian Marley’s upcoming compilation “Set Up Shop Vol. 2” which as usual, does not disappoint.  Not sure exactly when this album is due out, but this single dropped about a month ago.  Will have to do some more research on the release date.  

RIP John Holt

October 21, 2014

Sad news today as the world lost reggae legend John Holt.  He started as a member of the Paragons, and then continued as a solo artist in what would become a stellar career.  One of his most well known songs was “The Tide is High” recorded in 1967, although most people know the cover version […]

Suns of Dub – Jah Jah Solve Dem (feat. Sizzla)

October 17, 2014

Found a new EP from Suns of Dub which was just posted to SoundCloud last week.  The interesting thing about this EP is that the all the songs are variations (or dubs) of the title track “Jah Jah Solve Dem”.  So all the tracks feature vocals by Sizzla, but they are quite different otherwise.  I’m not too […]

Hail Ras Tafari

October 17, 2014

Protoje’s sophomore album “The 8 Year Affair” is REALLY good, and multiple listenings from beginning to end are not uncommon or unwelcome.  One of the stand out tracks is “Hail Ras Tafari” and to make it even better, Protoje recorded a live studio version that is almost 10 minutes long!  What sets this video apart […]

Protoje Concert in Miami

October 8, 2014

I have become increasingly frustrated over the years with the lack of reggae concerts in Toronto.  While living near Harbourfront Centre, I could at least count on a decent concert once a year during the Island Soul festival in August (previous years had seen the likes of Tony Rebel, Barrington Levy, and Mykal Rose pass […]

Oh, Carolina!

October 8, 2014

As the focus of this blog will be my journey through reggae music, I would be remiss if my first post was not this tune: Widely regarded as the first ever reggae/ska track to be recorded, this is where our journey begins.  The song was written in 1958 and was released on Blue Beat Records […]
