Alty B goes from ‘Nobody’ to somebody on new song

Alty BAiming to take the music world by storm, one lyric at a time, Real Entertainment Productions recording artist, Alty B is back in the spotlight, releasing his first single for 2014 entitled Nobody.

This song, produced by Smokeshop Studios, showcases the epitome of a ‘rags to riches’ type story, as Alty B speaks of the hypocrisy shown by people once a relatively unknown name gains some sort of recognition. Voiced on a beat combining Dancehall and Reggae elements, Nobody points out the struggles and whole heap a blood, sweat and tears’ it took for the singjay to gain respect in his industry while warning others in a similar situation to watch his or her surroundings that much more when success comes calling.

 Nobody has already found favour in his native Jamaica, with radio stations across the island playing the single in rotation. Alty B’s flow and straight-shooting lyrics make this song a worthy listen given its ability to relate to so many people who go through this everyday experience.

Alty B landed his biggest mainstream hit thus far after combining with fellow singer, Richie Loop for their collaborative effort, Island Girl. The song was a hit with several local TV and radio stations while also gaining heavy rotation in his base in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada. Other notable 2013 singles from the R.E.P artist, who is currently being managed by Andrew Lee Pryce, included Bubble Fi Me (feat. Cubanis), Leaving You (feat. Ebony Royal) and Woman I Need You (feat. Jah Cube).

Look out for the official video for Nobody in the near future as well as the single on iTunes, distributed by Johnny Wonder and Hapilos 21st. This is the first of many things to come from this rising sensation throughout 2014 and the foreseeable future.

‘Havana Sunset’ shines light on Canadian Dancehall-Reggae campaign

Emerging public relations firm, YuhSeeYou Entertainment and Publicity has decided to shed light on a brand new campaign they have created that’s sure to shed light on the Canadian Dancehall/Reggae market.

YuhSeeYou recently announced the impending launch of their new Dancehall and Reggae for Canada campaign, created to successfully promote the talent pool that exists within Canada as it pertains to Jamaica’s most prominent genres, Reggae and Dancehall. The Dancehall and Reggae for Canada campaign involves some of music’s most influential figures as highly regarded music distributor, Johnny Wonder and award-winning radio disc jock, Carrie Mullings as they seek to provide Canadian-based Dancehall/Reggae artistes greater outlets to promote their music.

According to YuhSeeYou founder, Reeva Proctor, the campaign came about as her PR firm worked with several of Canada’s promising Dancehall/Reggae artistes and noticed the appeal that these entertainers garnered as a result of their growing success.

For Proctor, the Dancehall and Reggae for Canada campaign hails as an ideal opportunity for Dancehall and Reggae who’re based in the North American country to earn mainstream success worldwide despite not residing in the country where these genres were originated.

“Both Reggae and Dancehall have opportunities here in Canada. It’s proven every year at events such as Jamaica Day Celebrations across our country and the two successful International Reggae Festivals that are held every year in Calgary and Montreal,” Proctor says.

“I don’t believe the saying that an artist must “Buss” in Jamaica before they can reach the international market. Europe and the U.K prove this to us time and time again. There is a Market for Reggae and Dancehall outside of Jamaica. Labels such as Push a Yute and Born Free Records have shown us that with proper P.R and Marketing that Jamaican music can make an impact no matter where you are from. Europe’s Industry Professionals excel in all areas of the industry such as promotion, public relations, production and media.”

In coordination with the Dancehall and Reggae for Canada campaign’s main objective, YuhSeeYou has signed off on the first official Riddim on behalf of this initiative, dubbed the Havana Sunset Riddim.

Havana Sunset features many of the aforementioned Dancehall/Reggae talents flourishing in Canada such as Alty-B, Chuxstar, Ebony Royal, Eyesus, Faze, Jah Cube, Tiffie and many others while also featuring emerging young stars based in Jamaica such as Richie Loop, Blak Diamon, Pretti Kitti and Gaza Maxwell.

Additionally, the Havana Sunset Riddim featured contributions from some of Dancehall and Reggae music’s emerging producers as the project was first built by Kimichi Records hit maker, Dane Sortie while being mixed by Canadian based label, Smoke Shop Productions while also featuring UIM Records producer, Anju Blaxx, who worked on Blak Diamon’s single for the compilation.

The Havana Sunset Riddim will be unofficially released on August 30 before being distributed in mid-September by Johnny Wonder and his 21st Hapilos outlet.

YuhSeeYou Entertainment and Publicity previously released the Wakefield Riddim, a compilation featuring many of Dancehall’s elite such as Spice, Voicemail and Richie Loops while also showcasing Blak Diamon and Toronto-based Dancehall artiste, Sampaloo.

Saine doubles the pleasure with a pair of hit tracks

Fast Rising Dancehall/Reggae singer, Saine has scored a double knockout in her fight to earn significant mainstream buzz within the music industry as she’s released a pair of singles that have peaked mass interests.

The newly dubbed first lady of Black Spyda Records has dropped her first solo track and collaboration as a part of the emerging Dancehall/Reggae label: All Night and Go With You (featuring T’Nez). Both songs reflect the growth of Saine’s vocal abilities as well as her musical persona as she aims to successfully represent the new crop of up-and-coming singers within the local music scene.

All Night immediately sets a romantic mood for musical admirers to relate to and feel comfortable as Saine lyricallydelivers a story of one’s innermost desires coming to light as he or she covets the essence of love and making love.

In this passionate musical display, Saine sings, “I see you start to sweat, you know what’s coming next, nervous when I undress, I hear you losing breath, I’m gonna take my time, I’m gonna do this right so saddle up and enjoy the ride.”

She continues, “Ok, let’s start again, don’t want this night to end…Wish I could press rewind and just go back in time.”

If that didn’t prove Saine’s credentials enough, the multitalented singer strikes again on her joint effort with fellow breakthrough star, T’Nez on Go With You. On this duet, Saine and T’Nez show undeniably good chemistry as they sing a story about the qualities of love and loyalty which ignite sparks within a building relationship.

Both singles have already gained the mainstream attention that Saine has hoped for as Go With You and All Night have earned strong rotation on ZIP FM where prominent disc jocks, ZJ Chrome and ZJ Dymond as well as Sun City Radio 104.9FM where DJ Calico of Darkcide International also played them.

Saine’s double effort features out the aptly titled, Saine Rain Riddim which is scheduled for digital release, via iTunes on May 15 while being distributed by 21st-Hapilos and Johnny Wonder.

For Saine, her latest works are true indication that her dreams stardom and international recognition isn’t too far from coming true.
