PREMIERE: Ricky Blaze Presents The “Boom Riddim”

PREMIERE: Ricky Blaze Presents The "Boom Riddim"

Featuring Mr. Easy, Mr. Lexx, Cecile, and Majah Hype as “Mitzy”

Everything about Ricky Blaze’s brand-new Boom Riddim, which Boomshots proudly premieres today, screams classic dancehall. Just take a look at the artwork. If you don’t know why the yellow coloring is lighter at the corners of the square then you don’t know much about true dancehall culture. When you carry mad disco 12-inches inside your crate, and spend years flipping through them in the heat of the dance, sometimes the corners will get a little bit worn. As a matter of fact, that worn look is actually a badge of respect. Just as long as the disc inside stays nice and crispy, you’re good. Speaking of which, let’s get to the music itself, which is reminiscent of the late 80s early 90s that used to rock BK’s Biltmore Ballroom, fresh from yard. Ricky Blaze cooked up this particular digital riddim in his East Flatbish basement studio—the same humble soundlab that birthed timeless sounds like Gyptian’s “Hold Yuh,” Kartel’s “Touch a Button Nuh” and Ding Dong’s “Badman Forward”—and he knew just the right artists to voice for this particular mood and feel. So he reached out to veterans like Mr. Easy “Like Sunday Morning” himself as well as Mr. Lexx aka Lexxus and dancehall’s original Bad Gyal, Cecile. There’s also a next bad gyal in the juggling—she goes by the name of Mitzy. You’re just going to have to listen with your own ears to see what she’s dealing with.  No more long talking, time to let Mr. Blaze Blaze it up.   Audio After The Jump…

What Would You Do To Be The Star? How Far Would You Go?

After Lexxus and Vegas told the world “Some gyal nuh ready fi di video light yet,” why do some people insist on keeping up foolishness just to splash all over YouTube, Instagram, and even Vine. Sure they might cop a plea and claim say they “ain’t gon’ do it,” then the next thing you know there they are getting reposted and retweeted. So Mr. Vegas had to link up with Dag Diggy (aka “Cratches King”) once again to take a light-hearted look at the crazy things that happen when the camera phones turn on. Some a dem still hype although hypness nuh fit them—uzeet? Video After The Jump… Read more »
