‘Live n Livin’/ Zoom Interview with Sean Paul: “I want this album to be about unity in the dancehall community”

We had the chance once again to interview the worldwide top celebrity Sean Paul, one of the most famous singers out of Jamaica. He released his album “Live n Livin” last March 2021 produced by his own label Dutty Rock Productions. This album achieved an excellent overall response all over the world and was especially appreciated by reggae and dancehall lovers. The epic album has 16 tracks featuring many Jamaican veteran artists as well as those from the new school: Buju Banton, Bugle, Ward 21, Sotto Bless, Busy Signal, Mutabaruka, Stonebwoy, Masicka, Govana, Intence and many more.

We have reviewed together some of the best tracks on the record such as “Crazy” with the legend Buju Banton, “Schedule” with Damian “Jr Gong” Marley and Chi Ching Ching, “Guns of Navarone” Remix with Mutabaruka, Jesse Royal and Stonebwoy & “Everest “feat. Masicka and Skillibeng.

International recording artist Sean Paul put all these names together spontaneously, also to show that unity in dancehall music can be achieved.
“I wanted this album to be all about unity in the dancehall community. Unity includes not only the people who are the hottest right now, but also those from a different era. Fighting each other is a bad thing we have developed in our music genre and it needs to change. I’m trying to be the change. This is the kind of leadership I want to show. “– said Sean Paul.

Asian Dub Foundation is n.1 in the Uk charts with the anti-Brexit single “Comin over here”

After an intense campaign on social networks, their protest song of Asian Dub Foundation “Comin Over Here”, featuring comedian Stewart Lee, reached No. 1 on the UK single download charts on the very first day of Brexit!

The money raised from “Comin’ Over Here” will be donated to the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN), a charity that supports young refugees striving to live independent and successful lives in the community.

Steve “Chandra” Savale, leader of Asian Dub Foundation, exclaimed: “This is an amazing result for a leftfield track that satirises casual anti- immigrant rhetoric. It’s struck a real chord with people because it’s both a tough tune and funny which is a rare combination. We’re happy that this unexpected pairing of one of Britain’s most brilliant comedians and most consistently radical band has raised a defiant smile in very challenging times and it shows that there’s still a lot of people out there that believe the UK should remain an open, progressive and welcoming place. It’s also incredible to think that in terms of actual sales, ie people deciding to buy the track rather than simply engaging a Spotify playlist, we were ahead of Ed Sheeran, Wham and Dua Lipa!”

Their anti-Brexit campaign got the support of other musical celebrities such as Rage Against The MachinePete Doherty and more. Continue reading “Asian Dub Foundation is n.1 in the Uk charts with the anti-Brexit single “Comin over here””

E’ da poco disponibile in tutti gli shops digitali il nuovo Ep di Fido Guido intitolato “Come me”. Esso contiene quattro tracce in stile Reggae e Dancehall che spaziano dalle più classiche alle più fresche sonorità giamaicane per un totale di tre canzoni in italiano ed una in inglese.

Nell’Ep è presente anche una collaborazione ovvero il singolo “Anche se” featuring Ensi, noto esponente del Rap made in Italy. Il lyric video del brano medesimo è online oggi su Youtube.

La traccia “Dove il sole” porterà l’ascoltatore in un viaggio immaginario in Giamaica vivendo al fianco di Fido Guido un’avventura ai Caraibi, mentre “Fossi qua” è una canzone sexy ed irresistibile, proprio come la donna alla quale è dedicata.

La quarta traccia si intitola “Love and Harmony”, brano edito ed interpretato sul Social Club Riddim. La produzione del disco è stata curata interamente da Pablo Morelove della label torinese Morelove Music. Le tracce sono state magistralmente registrate, mixate e masterizzate da Papa Leu (Adriatic Sound, Sud Sound System, Bag A Riddim band, Ska Nation band) direttamente dal Salento.
