Ras Kwame counts down the biggest new Reggae songs you need in your life this month.
Alexx A-Game is a big upcoming talent to look out for, with his range of positive songwriting. He has already been co-signed by the likes of Chronixx.
'Nuh Boring Gal' was a massive club track for 2015 in its original solo Aidonia format. But the remix with added pressure from Sean Paul and Grammy-winning soca boss Bunji Garlin takes it higher.
With cuts from Chris Martin and Jahmiel amongst others, this is definitely a very hot riddim right now!
A real thugged-out new school Jungle vibe from NYC’s Lion Dub. This remix by the Midlands' finest Serial Killaz alongside Mr Lexx promises that all Soundsytems are gonna get clapped!!
Strong crossover vibe on this one, with a jangly piano stab reminiscent of Gyptian's 'Hol You'. A big tune on the dancehall terrain at the moment.
No doubt inspired by his Bizzle-assisted production on 'Fester Skank', producer Diztortion goes hard on this crossover reggaeton track - now with added pressure from Stylo G and Lisa Mercedes to send it further towards the national charts.
This is a big bashment riddim currently taking over - boasting solid versions from Jahmiel, Alkaline, Mavado and I Octane. Seriously smooth roller, play it LOUD!
Jahmiel has been around a little while now and is getting more spins than ever due to his rising popularity. This track has a smooth Hip Hop bounce to it and is proving very popular worldwide.
The first of two No. 1 projects for this month (no separating them) - 'Theory Of Reggaetivity' is an excellent new album from Kendrick Lamar collaborator Assasin aka Agent Sasco. Stand out cuts include 'Stronger’, ‘Africa’, ‘Slave’ feat Chronixx and ‘Reggae Origins’.
The second of 2 No.1 projects for this month is 'Roots & Chalice'. This project from one of the new school roots leaders in Chronixx is the truth.
Chronixx goes Hip Hop with Kabaka on ‘Chalice & Roots’ over a Drake beat, Wizkid’s Ojuelegba Afrobeats instrumental gets relicked in fine style on ‘Thanks & Praise' and purists are loving the Tenor Saw-influenced ‘Puppy Nose’ feat Dre Island. Waaaaay up, a must checkout mix!
