AUDIO: Stream Pressure Busspipe’s “Africa Redemption” LP

Words by Jesse Serwer

pressure-busspipe

Pressure Busspipe is currently enjoying a Renaissance. Less than six months after he unleashed his enthusiastically received I-Grade Records LP, The Sound, he’s back with a second 2014 LP. For this project, entitled Africa Redemption, the St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands-based singer headed back to Jamaica, where he recorded the classic single “Love & Affection,” among other tracks, for producer Don Corleon in the mid 2000s.

Tarrus Tun Up: “Singy Singy” Meets Chi Ching Ching On “Tun Up The Music”

Words by Natalie Weiner—Tarrus Riley Radio Lily 2

Tarrus Riley is going from one-drop to the drop in his latest release “Tun Up The Music,” an EDM-influenced track with Chi Ching Ching from Chimney Records. The track is something of a departure for Riley, best known for his mellow, lilting lover’s rock—just listen to his most recent rocksteady-throwback album Love Situation. For Chi Ching Ching—recent guest on our own LargeUp Sessions and a featured performer at tomorrow night’s bashment with Federation Sound—the club-ready sound is less surprising. Ching’s been on top of the EDM trend for a minute, most recently with his remix of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (apparently he’s equally adept at turning up and down).

The video starts off with Riley playing hide-and-seek in the forest (with a pretty gyal, naturally), which quickly turns into a very fluorescent forest party. Check it out below, and tell us what you think in the comments. And if you’re in Miami, don’t miss Ching alongside Wayne Wonder, Cham and the rest of the crew.

AUDIO: Tarrus Riley feat. Big Youth + Mr Cheeks – “Five Days”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Tarrus-Riley-Love-Situation-Album

It seems like everyone in reggae is going back to the foundation. In 2012 it was Mr. Vegas and Busy Signal, with their respective Sweet Jamaica and Reggae Music Again LPs. Last year it was Shaggy, and Out of Many, One Music. This year, Tarrus Riley is leading the movement back to reggae basics with Love Movement, an album which delves deep into the roots and rocksteady eras.

Live + Direct: Watch Shaggy + Beres Hammond “Fight This Feeling” Video

Words by Tami Tsansai—

Beres x Shaggy

There’s no better time than summer to welcome feelgood tracks and eye-popping music videos complete with scantily-clad dancing girls, beach scenes and popping champagne corks. Enter dancehall darling Shaggy’s collab with lovers’ rock crooner Beres Hammond to turn this concept on its head… in a good way. We featured the monster track “Fight This Feeling” – the first single from Shaggy’s new album, Out of Many, One Music produced by ‘riddim’ genii Sly and Robbie – a few months ago, and are now happy to present its accompanying Joel Burke-directed video. And what a video it is!
