Konshens and Lil Jon

Konshens joins forces with Lil Jon for ‘Big and Sexy’ remix

Konshens and Lil JonDancehall superstar, Konshens has secured another major international collaboration as he has teamed with famed American rapper and producer, Lil Jon for a remix of his single, Big and Sexy.

The Big and Sexy remix, which was officially unveiled last week comes just over a year after the original version was revealed. It was produced by Mark ‘Mark Hize’ Collinder and Konshens’ Subkonshus Music label and features a very up-tempo style fit for the party scene, combining Konshens’ brash style with Lil Jon’s ‘crunk’ vibe.

Konshens expressed his gratitude to Lil Jon for joining forces with him on the remix, stating in a press release, “I could not refuse the opportunity to have Lil Jon, the crunk king, featured on one of my tracks. The ‘Big and Sexy’ song already brought a vibe to the dance but with Lil Jon added it gives the song another fire.”

The duo will be promoting this remix in the coming weeks.

Lil Jon, who is known for producing hits such as Yeah by Usher and Damn by the Youngbloodz has collaborated with Jamaican artists in the past, teaming with Elephant Man as well as Busta Rhymes and the Ying Yang Twins on the remix of Get Low.

Recently returning to Jamaica following a tour of Europe, Konshens is set to headline a concert in Uganda alongside Alaine, which is sponsored by Pepsi. While in Uganda, he will be donating books and other school supplies he received, through his book drive, to students of the Kololo Senior Secondary School.

“I just want to say thanks to everyone in the US and Jamaica who donated to my book drive for the students of Kololo Senior Secondary in Uganda,” Konshens said. “I appreciate it, and I know the students will too.”

Konshens & Raine Seville are ready to ‘Sekkle Down’ with new single

After a tantalizing rouse of explicit pictures over the past week, causing a frenzy amongst media outlets and international websites, Dancehall artist, Konshens and singer, Raine Seville come clean.

Yes, the duo have settled down, lyrically at least, as they release the seductive new single, Sekkle Dung. Produced by DreDay ProductionsSekkle Dung finds the pair exchanging some heated, sultry dialogue set to a slow pulsating, 90s-style riddim. While the immense sexual overtone of the song stands out, Sekkle Dung, is more than just a bedroom romp. 

Raine Seville explains, “It’s a song about a woman’s confidence. She’s strong enough to need her man, ask for her man, and him not being to resist such a confident appeal. Definitely, a sexy song for the grown and sexy!”

Raine Seville’s sensual vocals confidently take the lead on Sekkle Dung teasing her mate for action, accented by Konshens manly compliance, creating an exhilarating experience for all listeners. W

With Konshens shelling out hits like, Gyal Siddung, Bubble and Stop Sign while expressing a man’s excitement with the female frame, Raine was more than happy to compose a song that, “flips the script because normally it’s the man approaching the woman for sexual comfort.”

Konshens confirms by suavely remarking, “It’s real talk and you know that’s what I’m all about. Raine is a good artist and a very sexy girl; works well with the mood of the track”

Both artists found working together a welcoming experience and credit that energy, along with Dre Day’s vision to bring some well needed musical seduction into the Dancehall arena.

Sekkle Dung made its official debut with Fame FM’s Kurt Riley on Thursday, March 21st, and can be viewed on Konshens’ social media channel (Subkonshus Music). The single will be also be available for digital purchase on April 2.

Warren Weir and Yndi

Konshens, Tifa big winners at Youth View Awards

Warren Weir and YndiThey were hailed by many as Dancehall’s best deejays for their respective genders in 2012 and on Saturday, Konshens and Tifa validated those plaudits by snagging a variety of honors at the 2013 Youth View Awards.

The highly-revered entertainers took home three awards each on a night that saw many repeat winners and some standout performances at the National Indoor Sports Complex in Kingston. Tifa, who dominated last year’s show by taking home six awards, took home the Favourite Local Artiste (Female) award, trumping rivals Spice and Lady Saw for the honor. Despite her well-documented fallout with Lady Saw last year, Tifa took time during her acceptance speech to pay homage to the ‘Queen of Dancehall.’

The Hold On singer also took home the award for Hot, Young and Hype female of the year as well as Female Fashion Icon.

Konshens won the male equivalents of the Favourite Local Artiste and Hot, Young and Hype awards during Saturday’s show. Kartel clipped ‘Gaza’ deejays, Vybz Kartel and Tommy Lee Sparta for the Favourite Local Artiste honor, capping a year for the chart-topping singer who scored multiple hits including Gal a Bubble, Stop Sign and Siddung.

The latter single, featuring Darrio, also won him the award for Favourite Collaboration, beating Wayne Marshall’s Go Hard, Badmind Dem a Pree (I-Octane and Bounty Killer) as well as Informer (Vybz Kartel and Tommy Lee Sparta).

Spice prop at STING

Sizzla, Busy Signal shine at drama-filled STING 2012

Spice prop at STINGIn the New Living Translation version of the Bible, John 1:5 reads, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” Perhaps this enlightening quote from scripture sums up STING 2012 in a nutshell: A night filled with few stellar performances standing out above the drama and sub-standard efforts that dominated Dancehall’s biggest stage show.

STING 2012 was hyped in recent weeks as a revamped stage show focusing on strong performances, unearthing more young talent and an adjusted clash format. Though the show left a somewhat disappointing taste in the minds of hardcore Dancehall fans, some noteworthy acts and less recognizable names added flavor to an event that has lost some taste in recent years.

After a number of unknown acts and a clash of the bands dominated the first few hours of STING, it took a couple of veterans to finally put life into the show; primarily Wickaman, who delivered a spirited performance while honoring his long-time friend and fellow deejay, Captain Barkey, delving into their catalogue of hits from the 90s and 2000s.

Fellow veteran, Lady G proved she still has gas left in the tank while comedic entertainer Food Kartel also engaged the crowd by ‘cooking’ some of this year’s biggest hits like Uncle Demon (Shook) and many others.

However, it was a newcomer that really ignited the crowd inside Jamworld in Portmore early Thursday morning as emerging Reggae star, Chronixx elevated his worth, delivering a wholesome set capped off by his smash hit, Warrior while proving himself as a must-see attraction for 2013 and beyond. From there, things heated up as ‘The Strong One,’ Etana gave a rousing set while Iba Mahr and I-Wayne also delivered strong sets.

Konshens set for STING 2012

Dancehall’s biggest stage show has decided to add the industry’s hottest property to its lineup as Konshens will be one of the headliners on STING 2012 later this month.

After initially suggesting he would not do STING, Konshens has decided to perform at the 29th edition of the controversial event. The announcement was made on Sunday night by the show’s organizers, Supreme Promotions following talks with the Stop Sign singer.

In the release, Konshens expressed his satisfaction with the new direction STING appears to be heading towards.

“Initially, STING was a show I looked forward to watching, not so much to be a part of, though the hardcore dancehall is healthy for the culture,” he said. “This new turn weh dem a try to mek to give the show a facelift, I’m happy to be a part of it. Sting a Jamaica show fi di grass-roots people dem, so I am happy to be able to perform fi dem,”

This will be Konshens’ first appearance on the STING bill since 208, when he burst onto the scene with his classic track, Winner. However, the favorite for 2012 deejay of the year seemed like a lost cause in the eyes of the typically harsh crowd that filled Jamworld.

“I was at Sting 2008 only as a young artiste, coming off a European tour the day of the show, and di band say dem nah rehearse wid mi team if I’m not present. Mix that with the biggest and roughest dancehall crowd in the world and see wah yuh get. Mi escape the boos still,” he joked.

Four years later, Konshens has enjoyed a stellar year, racking up multiple hits such as Gyal a Bubble, Money Up, Destiny (featuring Tifa) and So Mi Tan. His debut album, Mental Maintenance, topped digital charts across Europe, Japan and New Zealand.

Additionally, the popular deejay headlined Reggae Sumfest 2012 and even featured on this season of Tyra Banks’ hit show, America’s Next Top Model, which shot episodes in Kingston earlier this year.

Year in Review: The Best of Dancehall and Reggae in 2012

It seems like just yesterday the year started, but 2012 is already coming to a close; marking a year within Dancehall and Reggae music that showcased its share of pacesetters during Jamaica’s 50th year of Independence.

Fitting that in a year where Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Frazer-Pryce re-defined the realms of speed in London, there were a number of fast-rising stars who proved consistently that no finish line is in sight regarding their promising careers. This year proved that there may be a future for our core genres after despite two of their proverbial kings, Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel serving different forms of penance behind bars. With that said, here are my picks for the Best of 2012 in Dancehall & Reggae music.

Best Reggae Artiste – Romain Virgo: Firstly, let me say it’s quite pleasing to know the presence of Reggae, the musical art form that made Jamaica a household name, has finally re-stamped its authority on the local scene. A borage of all-Reggae projects like Busy Signal’s Reggae Music Again and Delly Ranx’s The Next Chapter help Jamaica to regain some of its true identity during our most crucial year as an independent island. However, one artiste and album conquered all.

Virgo became an instant sensation when he conquered Digicel Rising Stars in 2007. Five years later, his star has shone amongst the brightest in the industry, primarily through his latest compilation, The System. Giving us hits like I Know Better, Rich in Love and The System, the album embodied the true essence of Reggae. His performance savvy and range have vastly improved year by year, proving why he is Reggae music’s next international superstar.

Comeback Artiste(s) of the Year – Cham/Da’Ville: After scoring a major hit with Stronger (feat. Bounty Killer and Mykal Rose), Cham seemingly disappeared into the abyss for a little while. However, 2012 proved that Cham has not only refused to desert from the scene, he has an oasis of hits left in the tank.

Wine, Back Way and Tun Up were just three of the hits Cham scored in a remarkable year for the highly acclaimed superstar. His lyrical ingenuity reached new levels and while ascending up the musical stratosphere, he brought his wife and upcoming singer, Ophelia ‘O’ Beckett along for the ride.

Da’Ville endured a rollercoaster ride off-stage as he attempted to re-charge his batteries musically. Those batteries were fully charged as the Reggae fusion singer returned with a bang this year through his critically-endorsed album, Krazy Love. Hits like Woman, This Love and You Got Di Ting once again made Da’Ville a force to be reckoned within the industry and offered a more savvy side to this wise veteran of the industry.

Incarcerated Dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel has something to smile about today as one of his most recent compilations has been nominated for music’s highest honor.

Vybz Kartel’s Pon Di Gaza Mi Sey album, released in October 2011, is one of 50 projects on the provisional shortlist for the Best Reggae Album award at next year’s Grammys in Los Angeles.

Other notables on the Best Reggae Album shortlist include Konshens, who has been torching the music scene this year with his debut album, Mental Maintenance, which features tracks likeDo Sumn, Simple Song, Gal Dem a Talk and She’s Happy. Additionally, past Best Reggae Album winners such as Sean Paul (Tomahawk Technique), Toots Hibbert (Reggae Got Soul: Unplugged) and Jimmy Cliff (Rebirth) scored nominations while Mr. Vegas also appears on the shortlist for his successful double disc, Sweet Jamaica.

The 50 nominees for Best Reggae Album will be trimmed to five (or six) finalists when the full list of next year’s nominees are announced on December 5 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The 55th annual Grammy Awards will take place at the same venue on February 10, 2013.

Konshens begins work on sophomore album

Internationally acclaimed Dancehall sensation, Konshens refuses to let the momentum established as a result of his Mental Maintenance album earlier this year as he’s already began work on his sophomore project.

Konshens released his debut album, Mental Maintenance in February, to rave reviews, topping iTunes charts in Japan, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and New Zealand. Additionally, singles off Mental Maintenance such as Simple, Last Drink (featuring Voicemail) and Do Sumn found favor with fans locally and overseas, dominating charts while cementing Konshens’ status as a legitimate superstar.

With these achievements tucked in his back pocket, Konshens seeks to make a similar splash as he plans to reveal more of his evolving, edgy persona in his sophomore album as he’s already began voicing this new project.

“You know say with Konshens, anything is possible so just stay tuned,” Konshens said in a press release.

Many Dancehall insiders have tipped Konshens as the best deejay for 2012 with smash hits such as Gal A Bubble, Stop Sign and So Mi Tan, amongst many others. Over the summer, Konshens released more hit singles such as Siddung (featuring Darrio) as well as Big and Sexy while event venturing into the world of house music, joining forces with renowned Colombian-American producers, Erik Morillo and Sympho Nympho for the track, Murder on the Dance Floor.

Konshens also headlined a successful Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest 2012 while also performing across the Caribbean and the United States while being scheduled to tour the United Kingdom as well as a return date to the American state of Connecticut for a show hosted by highly-acclaimed Jamaican-American media personality, Nikki Z.
