Reggaeton

Rapper and producer, JaefKae is razor-sharp in his Reggaeton hip hop single, New Machete

With a danceable versatile flavour like no other, the Chicago-hailing rapper and producer, JaefKae, burst onto our radar with the genre-fluid beats in his latest single, New Machete.

The tropic earworm picks at the roots of hip hop, Caribbean Dancehall, Reggaeton and Soul and plants the seed for a fresh new sound, defined by kaleidoscopically colourful instrumentals and the effortlessly high-vibes in the vocals.

During his career, JaefKae has opened for Nas and Pusha T, taken his high-energy performances across Chicago, and used his platform to represent his Afro-Purto Rican and Japanese descent, be a force of resistance against police oppression and to fight for black liberation.

His moniker comes from JFK because his 200-song discography “will blow your f***ing mind”. Considering that New Machete completely dominates your psyche before flooding it with dance-worthy rhythms and elevated talent, JaefKae had every basis to be that bold when settling on the pseudonym that will ripple across the globe attached to his infectiously upraising tracks.

New Machete is now available to stream on Spotify.

Makh turned the heat up in the UK EDM hip hop scene 100 degrees with his debut, You What

Makh broke the monocultural hip hop mould in his urban EDM debut, You What; the anthemic production begs to be played at max volume for total immersion in the adrenalized hit, which more than deserves placement in the charts.

After a sample of definitively British football chants, Makh uses fiery Bhangra beats and exotic electronic textures in place of the usual 808s. It’s a rhythmic masterpiece, heightened by the Bradford-based artist’s playful lyrical flow, which somehow simultaneously is as sharp as it is smooth.

Honestly, I haven’t been this psyched about UK hip hop since Scroobius Pip emerged. We didn’t need his bio to tell us that he’s a well-versed poet, that kind of canter doesn’t come easy, but with You What injecting personality into a rapid flow is second nature to the artist & producer. Who also runs the Music X Mindset podcast that examines the lives and mental health of artists. Could we love him any more? Absolutely not.

You What is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link

Exodus Burns And The Burning vocalist knows that they will be war first on, ‘Living In The Land Of Illusion’

Showing us the truth when many try and hide it for their own selfish gains, Exodus Burns And The Burning vocalist urges us to wake up from what these sleepy thoughts aren’t teaching us about history with his latest single, ‘Living In The Land Of Illusion‘.

Exodus Burns And The Burning vocalist is a Nassau, Bahamas-born independent reggaeton artist who is also a world traveller and educator who is renowned wherever he lands.

He is also the founder of Junkaa Bubb – which is a mixture of Bahamas Junkanoo music and Reggae Dubb music – who sends another real message here for us to learn from, away from the horrid misinformation that can break your glorious soul into tiny pieces.

To uplift consciousness in the African mind.” ~ Exodus Burns

Taking us to where the blood was spilt before and the memories that shall never be forgotten, Exodus Burns and the Burning Vocalist brings us another true story about how Africa has been scarred from its past and must never forget the right way forward to be truly at peace with itself.

Living In The Land Of Illusion‘ from Nassau, Bahamas-born independent reggaeton artist and teacher Exodus Burns And The Burning vocalist show us a world that can take you away from the truth if you aren’t too careful. He warns us that war will come if we believe that our oppressors are here to help us when they are actually just taking what truthfully, isn’t theirs. Sung with his unmistakable grit and honesty, this is another lesson from a great of the genre who further cements his name into the hearts of those who have opened their eyes to what is real.

Sensual Summer Reggae-Pop Vibes: Prymaal – Naughty Girl

Based on his latest single, Naughty Girl, Nigerian-born UK-based breaking artist Prymaal has returned to the music scene as a triple threat; his soulfully imploring vocals, playful lyrical approach and tropically blissful reggae-pop beats combine to create sensual summer vibes that won’t fail to serenade.

It really wouldn’t be a surprise if women are as quick to identify with the protagonist in Naughty Woman as they were to identify with Margot Robbie’s depiction of Harley Quinn. It’s an infectiously up-vibe track; you couldn’t ask for a sweeter summer pop hit.

Naughty Girl is now available to stream on YouTube.
