Music’s importance lies in the feelings it evokes in listeners, such is Vision’s aim with the hit bound reggae single “We Jammin”. Produced by Jon “fx” Crawford and Dubloise for Keynote Records, the feel good vibe of “We Jammin” brings nostalgic memories.
“We Jammin is a song that reflects the most memorable and happy times of my life in Jamaica. Jammin means to kick back and relax, instead of saying Chillin or vibing, in Jamaica we just say Jam short for Jammin. The song tells you a lot about who I am and where I’m from. Living in America isn’t a bed of roses for most Jamaicans. Leaving our families behind and starting all over has its obstacles. So to past the time we jam reminisce on the good times back home in Jamaica. Thats what the song is about, its about we Jamaicans, even we immigrant. We all like Jammin in our own way.” stated Jamaican born singer/song writer Vision.
Proudly Jamaica has given reggae music to the world, iconic artists, legendary entertainers and music that stands the test of time. Vison’s “We Jammin” is sure to fall right into place with such distinctions as it boasts melodic hooks and authentic reggae vibe.
The single will be available for purchase on February 21st, 2014 on itunes.

Meet Jamaican born, singer-songwriter, Simon Mitchell, most infamously referred to by his stage name “Vision”. The name was inspired by Mitchell’s influential upbringing during his childhood stint as a member of his mother’s church choir. It was here that Vision decided that in all things life, he would be lead by faith and not by sight. Because of this mantra, following his musical transition to dance-hall, the international artist set out to create a promising new sound that he would later deem as “Roots Pop Reggae.”
But before there was Vision, there was Simon Alexander Mitchell. Born November 5 to a Jamaican mother and British-Jamaican father, Mitchell resided in England as a child while his father played professional soccer before later changing careers and moving Simon and his mother to Jamaica. It was here that the influence of the island’s strong musical culture would engulf Mitchell’s life and inspire him to become an artist. At the age of 12, the young boy was introduced to the piano, which he took to very well and would learn songs at a gifted pace. He’d soon realize his melodic knack for composing music. Fast-forward years later in which a football injury and a twist of fate would lead the former college athlete to a life of music. Read more..

The new season has just started and we already had most big-profile brands making their releases for the new season after the World Cup. Puma, on the other hand, have waited to release a bomb for the new season after other brands have revealed their new boots, releasing the v1.10 Lightning SL football boot, which is our newest addition to the 2010-2011 football boots collection. The boot has been presented by Samuel Eto’o and Bolt, being designed with the Jamaican colours and has some interesting design features that have never been seen before.
The puma v1.10 Lightning SL in yellow/black/and green are the lightest boots ever made, weighing only 150 grams, which is slightly less than the Adidas F50 adiZero which weigh 164 grams. It’s also a lot less than the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II, which weight 210 grams.
The writing on the side of the boot is “Out of many, one people” which is Jamaica’s national slogan.
“The Puma v1.10 SL upper is made from a superlight microfibre synthetic material, which is extremely soft for comfort and ball feel, and provides slightly more padding than lightweight counterpart the adiZero. Like the rest of the v1.10 range, the SL features a central lacing system with a soft and lightweight tongue, constructed to provide breathability.”
One thing that is really striking about this boot is the sudden appearance of bling bling, aka diamonds on the back of the boot. First of all, it makes sense because Usain Bolt had a big hand in designing this boot. But why would a normal footballer need diamonds in their boot? I wouldn’t want diamonds in my boot, maybe my girlfriend would though. The special edition with diamonds costs £250 GBP which is a lot to spend for the regular person. The extra cost is simply the diamonds.
“The outsole and external heel counter of the Puma v1.10 SL football boots has been engineered from a revolutionary Thermoplastic. The Pebax material offers outstanding mechanical, physical and chemical properties, by bridging the gap between thermoplastics and rubbers. In short, this means the v1.10 SL’s outsole offers stability, durability and support at a fraction of the weight. And is further complimented by a Carbon Fibre insert in the outsole, enhancing player movement through reactivity, flexibility and midfoot stability.” (SoccerBible)
Sizing is also limited with this edition to 8-9 UK and 9-10 US, so they’re not for everybody. Check that before you buy them. They’re launched today, so you should be able to find them online soon!
