BC Dubcats – Chalice In Wonderland

March 26, 2015

I recently discovered the BC Dubcats via a Facebook post from one of my favorite DJ’s from Thymeless, DJ Dubconscious.  If you are a fan of dub, you will be downright delighted with their mixes on SoundCloud.  I started listening to one called “Chalice In Wonderland” which I feel has a nice and unique vibe to […]

Blue King Brown (feat. Jesse Royal) – Righteous Ones

March 23, 2015

I’ve had a Twitter account since 2009, but I never really “got” it.  I struggled to say anything of substance in 140 characters.  I didn’t understand why random people would want to “follow” me, and I didn’t know why I would want to follow random people.  I then proceeded to ignore it for the next […]

Protoje – Ancient Future

March 22, 2015

Protoje’s third studio album titled “Ancient Future” just dropped on March 10th.  Reggae fans all over the world have been eagerly awaiting it’s release for months now.  Originally scheduled for release in September 2014, the album was delayed due to issues acquiring the rights for various samples.  After an exclusive pre-release listening party at the Pegasus Hotel […]

Snow (feat. Mykal Rose) – Shame

March 20, 2015

I read a few months ago that Canadian reggae deejay Snow was planning on getting back into the music scene.  Specifically, I remember him talking about wanting to collaborate with Ninja Man again.  To be honest, I didn’t really know what to think at the time since he was out of the game so long that it […]

No-Maddz – Poo Puku Poo Puku Poo

March 11, 2015

As far as crazy song names go, this one probably takes the cake.  But that’s okay, because it’s not really a song…or is it?  Press play on the video below and be the judge. This “madd”eningly talented group of dub poets fuse words, instruments and harmonies into powerful social commentary.  The first TickuTalk.com post about […]

Winta James – Sidewalk Riddim

March 7, 2015

It’s become pretty clear to me that David Rodigan’s trip to Jamaica earlier this year was nothing short of prolific.  He basically worked with the “who’s who” of the Reggae Revival, and his crew recorded some simply masterful live performances (see previous TickuTalk posts about Jah9 and Protoje).  As if that wasn’t enough, Rodigan presented the brand new “Sidewalk” riddim […]

Dre Island – Way Up

March 6, 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a real dancehall banger, but it’s Friday so why not?  This tune is courtesy of Dre Island.  He is an up and coming artist who also counts himself among the ranks of the reggae revival movement happening in Jamaica right now.  This singjay also happens to be a […]
