Jesse Royal – Feel Your Pain

November 30, 2014

I found a really great acoustic recording recently of the Jesse Royal track “Feel Your Pain”.  For those who have never heard of him before, Jesse Royal is another rising star in the burgeoning movement known as the Reggae Revival.  His nickname is the “Small Axe”, which comes from a Bob Marley song of the […]

Super Cat – Night Flight (feat. Shaggy & Maxi Priest)

November 21, 2014

Here’s a smooth new tune for all of you this Friday morning.  It has some special significance because it’s the first track released by Super Cat in over a decade!  While he has made sporadic concert appearances the last 5 years, he has not released any new material in a long time.  Super Cat was a […]

Kabaka Pyramid – Lock Down D Place

November 19, 2014

My introduction to reggae was through dancehall, and while it does have a special place in my heart, I found myself listening to it less and less over the years.  Instead I turned towards the roots, and more conscious reggae music.  Dancehall has been much maligned over the years for it’s so called “slackness” ( […]

Jah Cure – Life We Live

November 17, 2014

I have been working on a couple of new blog posts, but most of them are drafts right now.  However, I found this tune today while listening to the BBC Radio 1Xtra show (hosted by David Rodigan), and it’s so good, that I simply couldn’t wait to share it with you!  Looks like this was released in […]

Lee “Scratch” Perry – Black Ark Vampires

Concert Review – Protoje: The Get Together in Miami

November 5, 2014

Thought I would do a quick write up of the Protoje concert my wife and I went to last weekend.  I originally heard about the concert in late September when it was posted on Protoje’s Facebook page.  We were thinking of planning a weekend trip sometime in October, and I didn’t see any good reason why […]
