WATCH THIS: Notis & Iba Mahr "Diamond Sox" Official Music Video PREMIERE

Jay Will Directs A Short Film Inspired By Notis & Iba Mahr’s Tribute To Classic Dancehall Fashion

Notis is a drum-and-bass production team comprised of Unga on drums and Welsh on bass. They were the team behind Ding Dong’s “Holiday” and many more recent dancehall/reggae hits. Earlier this year they dropped the track “Diamond Sox” with roots DJ Iba Mahr, and the song made a big splash right away. Riding a laid-back rootsy groove, Iba chats lyrics in praise of classic dancehall dress code items like the mesh “marina” (a ventilated tank top, preferably in red green and gold), the Arrow shirt that’s customarily worn over top,  Wallabee Clarks, and of course, matching socks in Clarks’ trademark diamond print. Now Jay Will has directed a music video that’s really more of a short film. With a cast that includes reggae legend Max Romeo, Tuff representing the Nomadz crew, and of course the mighty Bass Odyssey sound. Shot on location in Iba Mahr’s home turf of Linstead and Bog Walk, this video is destined to become a classic time capsule of Jamaican culture. Boomshots TV is proud to premiere this one. Game Over.

WATCH THIS: WORLD PREMIERE Sheba & Bounty Killa “Love This Lifetime (Remix)”

Online Premiere Of New Video From The Real Sheba & The Warlord

When Sheba Sahlemariam calls herself The Real Sheba, you best believe it. Descended from Ethiopian Royalty (King Solomon + Queen Sheba = Line of King David) Sheba carries herself with a certain majesty, and she thinks about time and space a bit differently than most. (“Yes my love for you can break the bonds of space-time,” she sings…Whoa.) Sheba’s journey this lifetime has brought her all the way from Africa to Kingston by way of Brooklyn, Port of Spain, and parts unknown. In short, Sheba’s uniquely qualified to rock your world. Did I mention she can sing? This sultry lover’s tune with a supernatural twist has been bubbling all year in Jamaica. Sheba says her love is “perfect and divine” plus the Warlord came through to give her the big co-sign. Boom-boom-bam.
