New single. Mr. Vegas – Give It To Har – MV Music

The first single from Bruk It Down 2.0, Reggae Dancehall innovator Mr. Vegas’ forthcoming album – set for release September 24, puts the world on notice. The future is now!  “Give It To Har”, produced by Studio 758 out of St Lucia and Mr. Vegas, simmers over an Electro/Soca/Dancehall beat that seems perpetually ready to pop.  With the suspense driving the record forward, Vegas’s double entendre produces a magnetic flow that lures you in. It is helpless to resist…

New album release. “Original Yard Food” by General Jah Mikey (ZHP)

This is gourmet reggae: Original Yard Food, the new album from General Jah Mikey set to release May 14 is made with simply the finest musical ingredients.



Commanding seductive control over the music and the message, General Jah Mikey serves up a nourishing roots reggae release on his new album, Original Yard Food, produced by critically acclaimed Zion High Productions (6 months on Reggae Vibes Top 50 Album Chart with Glen Washington’s ‘Masterpiece’ 2012 album) and set to be released May 14 on the ZHP label. For those hungry for real reggae music, Original Yard Food showcases that authentic conscious roots sound, a powerful intersection between breezy lyrics and edgy riddim selections built by the Zion I Kings production team—Tippy I (I Grade Records), Jah D (Zion High Productions) and Moon (Lustre Kings)—or, on the other hand, hardcore message music matched by signature instrumental riffs played by Jamaica’s living legends like Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith (guitar), Dean Fraser (sax) and Nambo (trombone). The thirteen tracks on Original Yard Food include up to the time reggae one-drop riddims, electrifying deejay segments, dub breakdowns and even jazzy explorations. And here, General Jah Mikey’s husky tenor adds yet another layer of cool and deadly vibes producing a subtly sweet listening experience even on the most hard hitting reality tunes. Original Yard Food will be in stores and available via fine e-tailers everywhere courtesy of Independent Distribution Collective.

Poetry album. Mel Cooke – Seh Sup’m: Live from Kingston

For more information email soulofthelionmusic [at] gmail [dot] com

Entitled ‘Mel Cooke… Seh Sup’m: Live from Kingston’, the CD has 14 original  poems and nine tracks of audience interaction, in which Cooke gives context to the  upcoming poem. Together, they form a comprehensive, engaging presentation in  which he takes on a diverse range of issues as they impact on Jamaica. Those issues  include male homosexuality, political garrisons, concepts of manhood, the beauty of  Jamaican women, the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake and Jamaica’s development  since independence.

Among the poems are ‘Bad Man Pull Up’, which takes a caustic look at men showing  their underwear, ‘This is Jamaica’, a reworking of the National Anthem, ‘House  Cleaning’ – based on Mavado’s song of the same name and which challenges  stereotypes of manhood through personal experience – and the somewhat  raunchy ‘Schoolas’, which uses word play extensively.  The recording was done at the March 2010 staging of Seh Sup’m, held at the Village  Blues Bar, Barbican. The event was hosted by Clement ‘Izimi Clem’ Hamilton, who  introduces Cooke on the CD.
