HEAR THIS: Chronixx "Out Deh"

Straight Outta Spaintown

Teased on the masterful Roots & Chalice mixtape released earlier this year, the official full length version of the latest Chronixx single to touch the road is here. “Out Deh” showcases Di Steam Ministah hitching a ride upon the Shiah Records’ rugged “Lion Paw” riddim with a true king of the jungle flex. Chronixx does what he does best, displaying his knack for paying subtle if not outright homages to the reggae/dancehall days of old, wrapped in the cloak of swag that defines today’s younger generation. Stepping up with a nod to Shabba’s classic King Jammy’s selection “Get Up Stand Up and Rock,” Chronixx tips his hat to the Rankin as if to say I, Chronixx, am the reggae future as well as the reggae now—because I & I never forget I roots—and yes those roots reach all the way into the street. (Folks keep filing his music under “roots revival” although Chronixx has always maintained that “me’s a dancehall man.”) The riddim—produced by Shiah Coore, son of Third World’s guitarist/cellist Cat Coore, and musical director for Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley—is fierce. Chronixx’s vocals are crisp and laced with grit, his lyrics both “wise and street smart” as the tune specifies. The stage is being set for a full-scale Chronixx uprising. Our  job is to make sure we stay tuned and don’t miss the opportunity to witnesses what’s next. Audio After The Jump… Read more »

Ever since he took over as the lead vocalist of Black Uhuru, Junior “One Blood” Reid’s unique twist on the Waterhouse singjay style—first exemplified on Uhuru’s smash “Fit You Haffi Fit”—has set him apart from the vast majority of dancehall reggae vocalits. Since stepping out as a solo artist with the certified boomshot “One Blood” (which has been sampled by both The Game and Wu Tang Clan) JR has maintained a strong profile in both the reggae/dancehall and hip-hop arenas. Boomshots is proud to premiere the first single from his new album for Zojak Records, which takes him back to his Jamaican roots, blazing a fire on all downpressors and repping for the ghetto youth without any apology. Video After The Jump… Read more »
