Ketch Up - meet and greets; newest reggae music trends

Kabaka Pyramid: raftiing on the #MarthaBrae with Queen Mother
Kabaka Pyramid has recorded a single with American producer/rapper Raekwon of the highly respected Hip-Hop/rap group Wu-Tang Clan, cited as a pioneer of Mafioso rap. Raekwon is also a convert to Islam. 

The song is called "Be Inspired" created for a "Ski film by Inspired Media Concepts" and produced by Winta James. Kabaka Pyramid's "Liberal Opposer" has hit X-Games and as the artiste continue to break new grounds in his career, he recently shared his experience in the music industry has been like on a panel at the Jamaica Music Conference N1 UWI Mona Campus.

Jessie Royal teamed up with Jovi Rockwell to release a new, smooth, lovers-rock type track called 'Mash Me Up' on the Natural High music label.  The roots/reggae deejay on a recent trip to Atlanta, Georgia in the US, cross paths with American producer/songwriter/rapper Jermaine Dupri who is also label owner at SoSoDef Recordings. No mention of any business venture between the two but who knows?
Nesbeth seems to have found a hit! His latest release, "My Dream" which he recorded fresh off his debut tour has received rave reviews across social media.  The track is garnering much attention on its own and was recently world premiere on Hot 97 New York.

Have you gotten your copy of Iba Mahr's album?  I like this guy and loving the positive, consciousness coming from his music. According to Iba Mahr, boyhood memories inspired the effort behind his "Diamond Sox" album which was officially released November 20th through VPAL, a subsidary of VP Records and features Capleton, Jah9 and JahMali. Rather than a collection of songs, Iba Mahr choose a concept for his album, one that augurs well with his upbringing and/or is reminiscent of his childhood experiences, "the aim an' objective was to put out an album where every song is like a chapter that connects with the other," Iba told the more. Support the movement and pick up a copy of "Diamond Sox" today!

As we seek to encourage music lovers to continuously support Jamaican reggae and dancehall music and highlight some of the best there is to offer, there are still so many unsung artistes yet to be discovered.  Recently, the daughter of the late, great Dennis Brown who goes by the name Marla B, released her first ever EP entitled, "Deliverance" on iTunes.  Music lovers are saying Marla B's got talent and is giving her good reviews, check out her music and be sure to get a copy of her new EP if you like it.
