As DASECA’s Genesis riddim surpassed all expectations and became the third best-selling (iTunes) album of all new Reggae album releases on day one of its digital release, Floridian Reggae – icon radio DJ Waggy Tee – voiced his opinion on the way the Genesis was marketed and promoted:

“I hope we can take this whole industry back to where it was beneficial for everyone, first up the producers,” said Waggy Tee, who premiered the Genesis on Miami’s 99 JAMZ station last week.  “Any service or input I can give in this new movement to improve our music (reggae, dancehall) to make it official and proper I am willing to give assistance,” continued Waggy Tee, echoing the sentiments of many people in the industry since DASECA announced three weeks ago that they would be promoting their riddim in a structured way.
“So much years I have fought with corporate to respect our music and add it in rotation for airplay,” lamented Waggy. “But end up in a wall because of so much low quality production (non mixed & mastered) circulating around and no direction in promotion, no managing & production department to call or talk to about their music. Its so unreal, and to the crossover market they look at our music as not ready for prime time since we don’t have our shit together (organized).
Anyway i could go on & on and sound like a broken record (cliche) about the past 10 years of our music and industry its sad that we still haven’t gotten the formula yet to compete in the market.”

With several other Jamaican production houses also structuring releases in a similar way, it seems their may be a new movement in Dancehall and Reggae to address the ailing sales and lack of proper marketing/promotion by the traditional Reggae labels. Genesis rididm is available on iTunes, Amazon, Juno and all other digital retail stores now

Reggae artistes blacklisted

GERMANY, Europe’s largest economy, has blacklisted 11 dancehall albums between 2008 and January 2010 this year because of their homophobic and violent content.

Albums by Sizzla, Elephant Man, Bounty Killer, Capleton, TOK and Baby Cham are on this list, or “index”, compiled by the German Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons (BPjM) Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien in German.

Stakeholders counter that up to 35 dancehall albums or songs had been blacklisted since the BPjM’s conception including Legalise It by reggae icon Peter Tosh, which was later removed.

The BPjM told the Sunday Observer that it is illegal to advertise these albums or to sell them to minors in Germany, with additional restrictions placed on their sale and distribution. “Breach of …[the] indexing is punishable by a fine or imprisonment,” stated Corinna Bochmann, BPjM spokesperson, in response to Sunday Observer queries.

Ten of the 11 albums were not only considered “harmful to young people” but also contained violent lyrics, according to the BPjM, with lyrics that incite hatred and propagate to kill homosexuals. The BPjM indexed these albums following complaints by certain groups such as the German gay lobby. “The BPjM can only act on the request of other administrative institutions, not by itself. Once an official request has been filed, the BPjM is obliged to act,” stated Bochmann.

Ellen Köhlings, editor of German reggae magazine Riddim told the Sunday Observer that dancehall is ironically filliping the gay lobby’s agenda. “These lyrics violate German laws which gives the lobbyists legal grounds to successfully censor music and gain media exposure,” Köhlings said.

“The gay lobby is looking for cheap forwards just like some artistes look for a cheap forward,” she stated.

Köhlings added that artistes could compromise by maintaining their anti-gay stance but avoid the use of violence. “At the end of the day there are much more urgent things to talk about than homophobia, and artistes should leave out, in my mind, the violent bashing of gays.”

Riddim magazine has at times assumed the role of dancehall mediator, as the industry has no lobby in Germany: “We have been doing everything we can to restore the image of Jamaica, but we can do only so much. In the long run Jamaica needs to take action,” Köhlings noted.

Violent anti-gay lyrics have been a feature of dancehall music for over 15 years with the Buju Banton classic Boom Bye Bye credited as its progenitor. The international gay lobby, in response, has petitioned the German government to ban shows and the sale of records by these artistes. Last year, Banton and Beenie Man were yanked from shows due to the lobby in the US, Australia and New Zealand. Local gay organisation J-Flag told the Sunday Observer that Jamaican deejays are not being unfairly attacked by the international gay community.

“Their music promotes violence, hate and hardship for members of a community that at no time has threatened or hurt them in any way. This is an unwarranted and unprovoked assault on a set of people who have a right to exist,” stated Jason McFarlane, J-Flag programmes manager. He added that dancehall artistes who continue to perform “hate-filled music” must be held accountable. “The influence of music on any society must not be under-estimated. What must be understood is that artistes have a right to express what they feel but also must be held responsible for the possible impact they can have on people. Music, in particular Reggae and Dancehall, is universal and so we must be aware of the wide reach of the possible influence of any one artiste.”

Reggae star Mark ‘Buju Banton’ Myrie has strongly denied any involvement in the illegal drugs trade

bujuBuju, who has been one of the standard bearers for reggae music for more than a decade, made the declaration through his legal representative yesterday as he prepared for his first day in court.

“My client says he is absolutely innocent of each of the allegations that the government has made,” attorney-at-law Herbert E. Walker III.

Walker, who has been retained to represent Buju, said he was looking forward to the trial. “You can tell your readers that his defence team is working night and day to protect his interest as he vigorously and vehemently denies all of the allegations,” Walker added.

Buju has already spent five days in federal custody in the United States and remains in jail pending his court appearance today at a pre-trial detention hearing. This is when the US authorities will outline more details of the allegations against him and he will get a chance to apply for bail.

Already the authorities have claimed that they have audio and video footage of Buju and others making arrangements to purchase several kilograms of cocaine. But Walker said that will not prevent him from asking the court to release Buju on bail.

“It is a detention hearing and a sort of status update where the government will bring in all the evidence it has. It was set for last Friday but the government was not ready to proceed as they needed more time to get their evidence together,” said Walker.

He noted that under US law, it is the defendant who has to prove that he should be granted bail because with the serious nature of the charge there is what is called, “a presumption of detention”.

“But the fact of the matter is the court still has to make an individual determination as to whether to grant bail. It is our position that he should be granted bail because he is innocent and is looking forward to establish that in a court of law.”

Buju is slated to appear in the US District Court in the Southern District of Florida at 10 this morning.

After today’s hearing, the artiste will return to court on December 28 for a removal hearing where the trial will be switched from the Middle District of Florida to the Southern District.

The affidavit, against Buju and his two alleged conspirators was initially filed in the Middle District.

In that affidavit a special agent with the US Drug Enforcement Administration alleged that Buju and two others knowingly and wilfully conspired to possess, with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine.

The co-accused were identified as Ian Thomas and James Mack who were allegedly arrested in a sting operation when they attempted to buy cocaine. A firearm was also reportedly taken from a vehicle driven by one of the men.

Buju, who was not on the scene at the time of the drug bust, was later arrested on charges of dealing in illegal drugs and could spend more than 20 years in a federal prison if he is found guilty.

Sean Paul Speaks about Street Cred in his interview with Nikki Z


Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Each artist in the industry has a story to tell. The triumphs and the challenges. This holds true for the mega international recording artist Sean Paul. Late last week, Sean Paul’s Twitter followers would have seen his tirade directed at a particularly persistent follower, who told him “don’t fabricate street cred … be real” (among other things), apparently based on statements made by Sean Paul during a recent television interview on the Mo’Nique Show. Sean Paul was clearly not amused, and in an exclusive follow-up interview with Nikki-Z, he spoke further about people constantly styling him as UPT (uptown) – born with a gold spoon in his mouth.

Shaggy & Tessanie – Never Let Me Go


Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

‘Never let me go’ – ls the latest project to hit the airwaves in November by Shaggy.  The project exposes the much evolved and strong vocal talents of Tessanne Chin, (with hit songs such as: Hide away, Black books, and Messenger). ‘Never let me go’ speaks to the highly romantic and mental attraction that lovers often experience, coupled with the seeming and ever present physical attraction existing between  a male and female.
The song speaks to a need by both sexes, to provide reassurance or lifelong commitment, to life and love, with the prospect of everlasting partnership.  The collaboration comes high on the heels of the request by the Jamaican population, as well as the cry of the nations entertainment bodies, to ensure the music we produce, is one which our children can listen and ascertain good values and morals. Never let me go encourages the continued commitment, with truth, love and willingness to work towards the goal of a lasting relationship.
Never let me go is a production by the much acclaimed, local and international producer Birch, based in Kingston, Jamaica.

Beenie Man Axed from New Zealand’s Big Day Out Festival

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Beenie Man is “heartbroken” at his axing from the Big Day Out after concerns were raised over homophobic lyrics in some of the Jamaican reggae artist’s songs.

The controversial artist was axed just a week after being named to play at the Big Day Out in Auckland on January 15 after an outcry from gay rights groups.

Organisers said “the depth of feeling and hurt amongst these groups has convinced us that for us to proceed with his Big Day Out appearances was, and would continue to be, divisive amongst our audience members and would mar the enjoyment of the event for many”.

But in an email sent to GayNZ.com and other media, titled I Do Not Condone Act Of Violence Toward Others, Beenie Man – real name Moses Davis – said his lyrics were misunderstood because of cultural differences.

“People sometimes may misunderstand my lyrics because of slang, metaphors, jargons and dialect; it is not intended to be harmful,” he said.

“We live in a diverse society, the haves, have-nots, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Atheists, light and dark skinned, homosexuals and heterosexuals. At times we wrongly ridicule each other for beliefs. One thing we have in common, we are all human beings and should strive for peace, equality and love.

“I want my music to bring people together and for them to dance, feel good and enjoy it.”

He said his controversial songs – which include the lyrics, “I’m dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays” – were directed at men who exploited young boys, not homosexuals.

“I wrote the lyrics at a point in my life when I younger and was seeing a lot of exploitation of poor and defenseless young boys in the garrison – where I too was born – by rich men,” he said in the email.

“When I wrote the lyrics boys were raped and murdered often – even recently a nine-year-old went to buy cigarettes for a man, came back and was raped and murdered. The act of sodomy was my concern when I wrote the song.

“I realize that those men were not gays but were predators or paedophile which is not a common word in my dialect hence the perception when generalising. I am older and realised the difference after.

“I have worked with gays and lesbians on videos and photo shoots and they have done great. I do not sing or perform any of those songs nor promote any violence on stage. I have been performing all over the world and there hasn’t been any issues of recent.”

He said he was disappointed to no longer be performing in Australia or New Zealand and asked Big Day Out organisers to apologise to him.

“I realize that I have never been to your country and what was old forgotten news in which I have apologised, is now new news because of me coming and now it’s your turn for an apology. I am a music ambassador for the world and the last thing I would want to do is spread hate or violence towards others.

“Please know that I am sincere and right now I am proposing peace, one world… One Love regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and nationality.”

Mighty Crown’s Yokohama Reggae SAI Festival Celebrates 15 years

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

A whopping crowd of more than 40,000 Japanese fans descended upon the Yokohama Reggae SAI music festival in early September to celebrate Mighty Crown’s anniversary in the business and the landmark 15th anniversary of the event.

The vibes were incredible in Yokohama, Japan, as Japanese dancehall enthusiasts were indulged with a performance by Dancehall legend Barrington Levy.As “The Far East Rulers” have elevated Dancehall music and culture in Japan to unprecedented heights, Yokohama Reggae SAI is an ideal glimpse of how enormous Mighty Crown’s position is in the country. The event reached an all-time high when founding Mighty Crown members Masta Simon and Sami T took over the stage with a live and direct, 8-round sound clash. With their claim to fame as a worldwide clashing sound system, no stone was left unturned. The brothers battled, introducing a new theme in each round. They even unleashed video dubs in one round. While Sami played a video dub of Beenie Man that dissed Simon. It was a TOK dub that Simon entrusted to fire back at Sami. The response was great!
“This was another great year of Yokohama Reggae SAI.” said Masta Simon, co-founding member of Mighty Crown. “Each year, the event increases in popularity….drawing more and more fans to experience an international Reggae Dancehall experience. “The awareness of the event is also soaring in Jamaica,” added Mighty Crown’s manager Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin.

The 15th Yokahama Reggae SAI went out in spectacular style with a fireworks display that was out of this world. Mighty Crown was quite pleased with the show’s success. And what made the event extra special was the official Japan release of the Mighty Crown Dynasty High Nike sneaker. Focused on the future, Mighty Crown’s Dynasty High Tour is set to jump start in October. Always bridging the gap between Japanese and Jamaican culture through the power of Reggae music, for Mighty Crown — the sky is the limit.

The Yokohama Reggae Festival SAI has become Japan’s largest Reggae music concert. Over the years, what reads like a who’s who of the Reggae music industry have taken center stage at the epic event including Beenie Man, TOK, Wayne Wonder, Voicemail and many others.

With the odds squarely against him U.S based rapper Fat Joe came out gunning at Fully Loaded on Sunday and when the show came to an end Joe was among the best performers of the night.

Decked in a red and white Polo shirt the New York veteran took the stage at minutes pass 2AM when the James Bond Beach crowd was eagerly anticipating some excitement and Joe delivered. Opening with a number of his more female friendly tracks like “What’s Luv” and “I Wont Tell” Joe took his time and tried to connect with the crowd but the response he was looking for didn’t come until he introduced his biggest record to date.

10 minutes into his set Fat Joe signaled to his deejay who then reeled off the classic hit single “Lean Back” which had 5-7 thousands strong Fully Loaded crowd doing the rock away. After that high energy moment Joe spoke to the crowd saying “I heard some people saying Fat Joe should retired, but they probably never heard this thing right hear” which introduced his next big song “Make It Rain” which kept patrons moving to the signature Scott Storch beat.

Fat Joe closed out his set performing a number of tracks for his long time friend and role model Big Pun before heading backstage for interviews and photo shots with his fans.

Ras Penco ready for Reggae Sumfest

raspencoReggae sensation Ras Penco is making the rounds on local and international airwaves, as his hit single “Thousand Miles” has been garnering airplay on radio and television throughout the Caribbean and North America. The single went to #1 in Jamaica in April, is currently #2 in the Cayman Islands, and the video has been in regular rotation on BETJ and VH1 Soul ever since.

Now as the summer concert circuit heats up, Penco will be taking centerstage at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Friday, July 24. Billed as “International Night,” Penco will be sharing the stage with the likes of Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson and Jazmine Sullivan. Sumfest is touted as the best reggae show on Earth and Penco is one of the few reggae artists that will be bringing its authentic sounds to the thousands of international tourists who journey to Sumfest each year.
“It’s a great accomplishment for me to be performing for the first time at Reggae Sumfest,” states Penco. “Sharing the stage with Ne-Yo on ‘International Night’ and representing reggae music on that line-up and that stage is a big step for me.”

Back with his new single “Most High,” Penco composes a more cultural theme than the romantic “Thousand Miles,” in a timeless conscious tune that laments the guidance and protection offered by the Rastafari faith. The single is already climbing the charts and finding fans in reggae aficionados everywhere. “It’s a prayer for me now to further my career and for Jah to guide me along my journey,” reveals Penco. “It’s doing well in Jamaica, as well as the U.K. and Canada and I’m looking forward to performing for my fans there soon.”

With two consecutive hit singles, Ras Penco is tapped to be the future of reggae music and someone reggae fans can count on to deliver solid songs that define the soulful genre.

Foota Hype and Mavado no longer friends

The 28-year-old sound system selector, Foota Hype, took a swipe at the self-proclaimed ‘Gully God’ for neglecting him and claimed that the artiste has lost his way since his emergence on to the dancehall scene.

“I just want the public to know that I am no longer affiliated with Mavado. I don’t want anybody to call me about him because from the other day, it’s like he has gone on an ego trip. He’s not the singing blacks who I once knew.”

“Mavado a mek the money get to him head now and him feel like everything what him say is right. I carry you to stardom, I was the one who put Gully Side on the map and you carry it around the world,” he added.

Another of Foota Hype concern is that Mavado, has always credited his success to the mentorship of Alliance general Bounty Killer, but he was eager to dismiss those claims.

“Is not Bounty Killer buss Mavado, nor Julian or DASECA, I only know of two people who always fight for his career and that is me and Flex,” he said.

When asked how he thought Bounty Killer would respond to his parting ways with Mavado, He said: “Honestly, I have no idea. It’s not a situation where everyone is involved. It’s between me and Mavado

“At the end of the day, every man is their own big man. So if a man want to say Foota Hype a move a way, that’s their thing. But me know what’s happening … so I can’t roll with people like that.”

Foota Hype, who said his last studio effort with Mavado was on his Gully Creature rhythm in 2007, still intends to remain part of the Alliance group. But, said that he has lost trust in Mavado and has no interest in dealing with him.

“Of course, me still say Alliance, that won’t change. Me still live a Cassava Piece, still deh pon di Gully Side me nah say Gaza, but me just don’t have anything to deal with Mavado,” he said.

Mavado – “Dancehall’s New King?”


dhusacover-1What is considered a king of dancehall? So far there have been kings such as Bob Marley, Shaggy, The self proclaim king himself Beenie Man and questionably Dutty Cup’s own Sean Paul. Can Mavado live up to these expectations… we ask that question.

David Brooks aka Mavado hail from the streets of Cassava Piece in Kingston Jamaica is the hottest thing in dancehall right now. Known for his melodic vocals his music has crossed borders that most Jamaican artists dream about. Collaborating with the likes of 50 cent, Busta Rhymes and also recording on a Kanye West track for Jay Z’s  forth coming album the Blueprint 3, with this international success he is undoubtedly the hip hop voice of Jamaica.

With his current hit single “so special” receiving crazy airplay on American radio and his new album “Mr. Brooks Better Tomorrow” climbing the billboard charts he has cemented jam-packed shows in the UK, that also featured Serani, Bugle, Chase Cross and Alliance selector Boom Boom, Mavado moved on to his first-ever European Tour Visiting 6 countries for 9 shows in 10 days across the continent, Mavado has been met with nothing but love, underlining the international appeal of his music and message.

“The response everywhere we’ve been has been mad,” said Mavado. “Paris was the first show and it was crazy, the venue was packed and the crowd sang every word. It set the tone for the rest of the tour which has just been more of the same.”

dscn0089 Traveling by day and performing night after night, Mavado has so far blazed through France, Belgium, North and South Italy and across Switzerland, and will finish up with shows in Germany, Holland and US.

Whilst every show has left the crowd in rapture, perhaps the most poignant appearance was in Zurich, Switzerland, the city where his Father was killed over 3 years ago. Mavado got the chance to meet with some of the elder Mr. Brook’s friends, who knew him as “King” and to cap off a memorable visit Lee Scratch Perry, who is based in Zurich and was also a good friend of Mavado’s Father, attended the show.

With all these achievements and accomplishments and ongoing success can we now truly say that Mavado the Gully God is now the king of dancehall? Since the controversial battle at sting his nemesis Vybz Kartel now has numerous top 10 singles in “Jamaica” and can be heard practically on every new dancehall riddim that hits the streets, Should Vbyz Kartel be dubbed the king or is he just second best, what makes them different?

Reggae Star’s Killers Get Life

A judge sentenced the three men convicted of murdering South African reggae star Lucky Dube to life in prison, The Associated Press reports. Dube was shot to death in 2007 when the men attempted to carjack him. The suspects, Sifiso Mhlanga, Mbuti Mabe and Julius Gxowa, were all convicted of the killing Tuesday. Not too long before the verdict was announced, Mabe and Mhlanga attempted to escape from court. Dube’s son, Thokozani, wept in court as the sentences were announced. Thokozani was in the car with his father when he was gunned down. Dube’s family and others got together and sang South Africa’s national anthem outside of the courthouse afterward. Dube was the nation’s top-selling reggae artist and recorded 22 albums.
