RIDDIM UP: The “Different Eyes” Juggling

RIDDIM UP: The "Different Eyes" Juggling

A Warm & Easy Reality Set Featuring Jahmiel, Vershon, Sizzla & Delly Ranx

Over the past half century or so Jamaican music has evolved through so many different styles and sounds that it can sometimes be hard to discern the various strands of musical DNA. From mento and calypso to jazz and bluebeat on through ska, rocksteady, reggae and dancehall, the musical morphology continues to this day. Boomshots’ Riddim Up series digs deep into certain outstanding riddims, seeking to identify the unique qualities that make them certified Boomshots. We kick off today with “Different Eyes,” a new juggling from Pure Music Productions, distributed by the mighty 21st Hapilos Digital, which hit iTunes today. The understated, slow-burning instrumental is a prime example of the sonic changes within modern dancehall.  Because none of the usual hallmarks of vintage reggae or dancehall are present—from the drum pattern to the familar “skank” guitar or piano—we have to hear the Different Eyes with different ears. Even the bassline is subtle, overpowered by a mournful, hypnotic guitar figure and a few gentle rimshots. The minimalist riddim sets a mood that inspires all the vocalists to hold a similar vibe. Each tune on the riddim complements the ones that come before and after it, and the whole becomes one unified statement that’s greater than the sum of its parts.  Audio & Track-By-Track Review After The Jump… Read more »

The World General Stays On That Paper Chase

When it comes to living out one’s dreams, there’s nothing quite like money to make a vision turn to reality. Just ask Delroy Isaac Foster, the dancehall artist and producer known as Delly Ranx. His latest juggling for his Pure Music Productions team is a slow-burning riddim called The Different Eyes. Most of the songs on this set tend towards the more consious, real-talk end of the spectrum, and what’s more real than the paper chase. As the World General Delly Ranx explains on his latest, it takes many things to make a woman happy—but one thing that’s never out of fasion is money nuff. Boomshots is proud to premiere the brand new visuals, shot on location in New Jersey. Video After The Jump… Read more »
