Chino & Di Genius Stirring Up Some Revolutionary Sounds

Just because they haven’t been dominating the JA juggling like one time, don’t sleep on the Big Ship Crew. Di Genius has been keeping busy on the production tip, making hits with UK Afrobeat star Fuse ODG and earning a Grammy nomination for his work on Mali Music’s album. He and Supa Dups recently produced Michael Franti’s entire album—and he’s preparing his Labwork compilation featuring dancehall joints with artists like Konshens and Popcaan. Meanwhile the Captain himself, reggae legend Freddie McGregor, will be dropping an album of his own this year. To kick off what looks to be a big 2016, here’s the first cut off the G.M.T.A. project featuring McGregor brothers Chino and Stephen dropping revolutionary lyrics over a rub-a-dub riddim. Perfect soundtrack for troubled times. Video After The Jump… Read more »

If You Can’t Tell The Truth, Could You At Least Do A Better Job Lying?

It’s been a minute since we heard something new from Denyque Dontrae, a.k.a. Supergirl. She first caught our attention a couple of years ago with her Jeremy Harding–produced single “Hooked On Me,” a tragically slept-on pop masterpiece. Now the brainy beauty is back with a Stephen McGregor jam that looks at affairs of the heart with a very unromantic eye. In this song she’s way past expecting this man to tell the truth, but she wouldn’t mind if he a bit more effort into his lies and alibis. Love is not a game—if ya don’t know, you might be getting played.  Audio After The Jump…

Stephen McGregor Speaks The Truth, Cause It What It Will (Dem Get Kill)
Stephen McGregor started out the new year by stepping out from behind the mixing board to talk his mind upon the mic. His chosen topic? All the forces holding back real reggae music—from mass media mediocrity to payola to straight-up fuckery. “Me know dem ah go vex and cuss when dem hear this. Remember who the cap fit let them wear it.”  Audio After The Jump…
