Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

In honoring one of Jamaica’s most prolific reggae pioneers Dennis Emmanuel Brown “The Crown Prince Of Reggae”, Canadian based r&b / soul singer Divine Brown is presenting her latest single “Sitting & Watching” to the world. Divine who visited Jamaica last month for a live concert in Kingston also stopped by the Geejam recording studio in Portland where she recorded a number of tracks for her upcoming third album “Something Fresh” due this Spring.

With February named as the official month in celebration of Reggae’s rich history and culture Divine’s beautiful vocals and vivacious delivery couple with Dale “Dr. Dizzle” Virgo’s stunning production offers fans of the late Dennis Brown the opportunity to remember his undeniable contribution to the music fraternity at large. A lover of reggae herself Divine’s very first attempt of the genre came in 2005 when she release the mega hit “Old Skool Love Remix” for which a video was later released.

An accomplished star in her own right Divine has always maintained a presence in the industry. In 2009 she released her sophomore album entitled “The Love Chronicles” which later won the Juno Award for R&B / Soul Album Of The Year. Her biggest single on the album was “Sunglasses” which made its way to #14 on the U.S Billboard Dance Charts.

Currently represented in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean by Xklusiv Entertainment (Bookings & Promotions Co) Divine Brown is looking to reintroduce her music to the Jamaican public in the hope of gaining a strong local fan base.

Benicio Del Toro Narrates Doc on Reggae Legend Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry

The storied life of Jamaican reggae legend Lee “Scratch” Perry is the subject of The Upsetter, a new documentary directed by independent filmmakers Ethan Higbee (Red Apples Falling, The Anti-Fascist) and Adam Bhala Lough (The Carter, Bomb The System). Actor Benicio Del Toro, who’s described by Lough as a Perry “fanatic,” narrates. The project has been in the works for seven years and is set to premiere on March 25 at Los Angeles’ Downtown Independent.

A vital influence on the music of Bob Marley, The Clash and the Beastie Boys, all of whom Perry produced, the sounds Perry created over 40-plus years helped set the stage for the advent of hip hop, dub and electronic music. “Besides just being an eccentric character, what hooked me was that through his life, you can really chart the birth and growth of reggae,” says Lough, who shadowed Lil Wayne for the much-buzzed about 2009 doc The Carter.
Adds Higbee, who’s currently directing Basedworld, a doc about up-and-coming rapper Lil B: “Lee is just real. He loved looking at old footage of himself. We played him 50 of his greatest songs and he remembered who played drums on what track, who was in the studio, what was going on in Jamaica at the time… I  felt really lucky to get to spend this time with Lee and learn about what a great, hilarious, spiritual dude he really is. “
Getting Del Toro involved was a matter of persistence, the directors tell THR. “I have to credit Ethan, who never gave up on getting through the barriers to reach him,” says Lough. “We kept pursuing him, and when we finally did get through, he loved the idea… Benicio is such a professional and a perfectionist that he actually did a couple different sessions. It was a distinct pleasure working with him. He’s one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met.”
Higbee, as it turns out, first came to know Del Toro as a Perry fan while on the set of Oscar-winning movie Crash, where Higbee was a driver. “I was driving Ryan Phillipe around and playing a lot of reggae in the car. We kind of vibed on the music and he told me, ‘I came into Lee Perry through Benicio Del Toro, we were shooting a movie and we used to listen to him all the time.’ I just kind of stored that in the back of my brain. Like, ‘Benicio, he’d be a good guy to do the voice over…’ And about six years later, I was finally in a position to reach out to him. As soon as we met Benicio he was down. He’s been a big fan and supporter. We’re actuallly going to do some screenings and Q&As with him.”
For his part, the film’s star couldn’t be happier with how the project turned out. Says Perry: “This is my movie and this is the truth.”

I-OCTANE INVADED NEW YORK CITY AND WOWED FANS WITH THREE STELLAR PERFORMANCES

I-Octane invaded New York’s Tri-State area with not one but three stellar performances last week.  After a whirlwind media tour at the end of January, I-Octane returned to New York a week later for his anticipated performances at SOBs in New York City, Temptations Night Club in Brooklyn and The Hut in New Jersey.

On Monday, February 7, 2011, I-Octane was the headline artist at the first Rock With Squeezeinstallment of 2011.  Hosted by David “Squeeze” Annakie, CEO of LinkUp Media and Publisher of JAMROCK Magazine, the weekly event was the perfect platform to kick-off a week of scheduled performances.  Despite freezing temps and rain, fans came out at 7pm to see the show.  At showtime, the singjay blazed the stage to screams from fans and opened his performance with single No Love Inna Dem.  I-Octane wowed the crowd with other hits such as My Life, Lose A Friend, Puff It, Mine Who Yuh A Dis, among others.  The venue came alive with every song as patrons mouthed every word and danced until the end of his set.  At the end of his performance, Squeeze conducted an on-stage interview.  At that time a request from a fan to be serenaded by the singjay was granted.  I-Octane sang Everytime You Touch Me, a favorite among his female fans, which was apparent when all the ladies began screaming.

Then on Wednesday, February 9, 2011, Brooklyn’s Temptations Nightclub came alive. In front of hundreds of fans at Wah A Gwaan Wednesdays I-Octane brought the same energy from Monday night to the stage.  Among fans, industry elites such as Jabba and Mr. Cee of Hot 97 and Diva Nikki Z were on hand to witness the singjay’s tireless performance.  Promoter Johnny Wonder remarks “I-Octane’s performance on February 9th at a jam packed Temptations in Brooklyn was historical. The fans and media were in a frenzy.  Jabba and Mister Cee were in attendance to witness the I-Octane movement.  I’ve kept many shows in Brooklyn at Temptations and have never seen the hard core Brooklyn garrison audience that accepted and received an artist like they did I-Octane.  Hapilos, Steelie Bashment and I are proud of this very successful promotion. I-Octane has arrived and he isn’t going anywhere any time soon.” Jabba added, “I really enjoyed the show.  Much respect to Johnny Wonder for bringing I-Octane to Brooklyn at Wah A Gwaan Wednesday first.  Mr. Snow you can’t stop the fire.”

Mr. Cee, host of Hot 97′s popular “Throwback at Noon” added to the mounting list of raving reviews, “To hear I-Octane’s music is one thing but to see him perform live is a must.  I-Octane is that next dude.”

I-Octane rounded out his slew of performances at The Hut in Newark, New Jersey on Thursday, February 10, 2011.  Like SOBs and Temptations Night Club, the singjay was well received by fans and performed to a pack house.  The highlight of the night came in the form of a dedication to those who recently lost a friend or a loved one.  I-Octane serenaded the sold out venue with his hit Lose A Friend.
It is clear that I-Octane has not only tapped into a new fan base but most importantly he has earned the respect of those in the industry - “I-Octane is a shining example of what an artist should be.  He does not have a song on major market radio nor does he have the hype behind him but he was still able to take on a mixed crowd and hold their attention.  This is a perfect example of where reggae and dancehall should be.  He makes me proud and he should make Jamaica proud.” Diva Nikki Z

What’s next?  The singer will begin his “My Life” tour on Saturday, February 12, 2011. Confirmed US dates include:

February 15, 2011 Arcata, California
February 18, 2011 Fairfax, California
February 19, 2011 Miami, Florida
February 20, 2011 Long Beach, California
February 21, 2011 San Diego, California
February 25, 2011 Maple Grove, Minnesota
March 4, 2011 Bridgeport, Connecticut

Mavado’s successful 8 city tour of Europe

Mavado is back in the island after an 8 city tour of Europe, along with Gully Squad’s Chase Cross and Stacious. The tour saw Mavado perform 3 times in Germany – Hamburg, Cologne and Berlin, as well as in Switzerland, Scandinavia and at the Amsterdam Reggae Festival.

Kicking off with consecutive shows in Germany, the Amsterdam Reggae Festival followed on Saturday February 12 at the packed Heineken Music Hall, an arena in the shadows of the Ajax FC stadium. Capleton, Jah Cure, Vegas and Red Rat were the other performers, all backed by Ruff Kut band.

“Its my third tour of Europe and it just gets better,” said Mavado. “Its always a joy to see people from all nations in the crowd who’s first language is not English singing along to my songs. Its a great feeling and inspires me to continue making great music. Life on the road can be tough, you have to just condition your mind and get physically fit because its just travelling and shows day after day. Its a joy to see the people’s reaction out there 7,000 miles away from mi yard so its something I love doing.”

The tour then went on to break new ground for Mavado in Scandinavia, visiting snowbound countries with temperatures of -17 degrees.

“This tour we ventured into markets Mavado hasnt played before,” added manager Julian Jones-Griffith. “Promoters in Helsinki, Finland, said it was the biggest Dancehall show ever there. The Stockholm and Copenhagen shows were also very well attended and the crowds were full of energy. These shows were on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights so to see Dancehall music getting that support so far from its epicentre is encouraging.”

Wednesday saw the tour land in Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city and an emotionally-charged stop for the Gully Gad as it was in Zurich his Father lost his life. Mavado gave a fiery performance for nearly two hours, singing hit after hit for the captivated audience, until he was hoarse and could sing no longer.

The tour rounded out in Berlin, Germany, in front of another packed club, before the long flight back to Jamaica. Mavado, who has the hottest song on the island at present with the Stephen McGregor-produced Pepper, is currently working on his album, set for a Summer release, as well as a slew of singles.

“We’re excited about a track called Delilah, which will be released on my own label,” said Mavado. “Its a song about the reality of relationships and I’ve performed it only once live in the UK in December and its had the internet buzzing since then. Its gona drop next month.”

In other Gully Gad news, Mavado’s Stulla Wednesdays will be reborn in the coming weeks at Starlight, a new venue in New Kingston. Stulla Tonic Wine is being brewed to perfection and will be available in stores in the coming months and Mavado will be appearing alongside mentor Bounty Killer and others at Follow the Arrow this Saturday night. In whats set to be another stellar year for Gully Gad, he’s slated for appearances in the UK, Canada, Africa, Australia, Dubai, Trinidad, Costa Rica as well as a host of local events in the coming months.

VIDEO DIRECTOR ICEY JACE WINS 1ST AWARD

When the polls of the 2nd Annual 2011 Cari Vibez Video Web Award closed last Friday night, music video director Chris “Icey Jace” Campbell was amongst 10 individuals who came out victories after a well contested month of voting. Campbell who won by some 40 votes ahead of 2010 winner Jay Will last year took the market by storm directing a host of videos including the much talked about Leftside & Mystic “Want Yuh Body Remix”, Ishawna “Legendary”, Chedda & QQ “Cleanest” and Trawma with “Send Me Some Success”.

Campbell who founder the video production company “Icey Jace Film Factory” described the win as a blessing. “Well right now I feel honored in accepting this as my very 1st award since I started shooting videos 2 years ago. I work hard so I take nothing for granted and this is something I got from my mother, looking back 2010 was an awesome year I shot my very first video in June for a New Jersey based dancehall artist called Conflict and from then things began falling into place”.

Having directed a total of 8 music video last year Campbell explained that Icey Jace Film Factory is now focused on quality and not so much quantity. “Last year the company which I run alongside my partner Renesa “Lola B” Wright did well overall, Ishawna’s video was in the top 5 of the RETV MVP Video Countdown and Leftside’s video debuted at #1 on the Cari Vibez Top 10 video Chart so the emphasis is now on showcasing our creativity”.

Other winners at this years Cari Vibez award include I Eye who won Breakout Video Of The Year, Lady Saw for Female Video Of The Year, I Octane for Male Video Of The Year, Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor for Producer Of The Year, Chad “Global Bob” Torrington for International Male Dancer Of The Year, Kim LaQueen for Female Dancer Of The Year, Alborosie for International Video Of The Year, Drastic Sugary Waistline for Soca Video Of The Year and finally Taddy P alongside Mackie Conscious for Collab Video Of The Year.

Each winner will be presented with a Crystal Globe Tower 9 inches in height, 2.5 inches in width and 2 inches in diameter weighing in at approximately 5lb’s.
