Quay Rashad has dropped their rhythmically entrancing Dancehall single “My Baby” featuring AU Music

For their debut single “My Baby”, Quay Rashad borrowed the talent of AU Music and the influence of a myriad of different genres. Each stylistic genre-infusion into the Dancehall mix served to amp up the euphoria while keeping the tempo smooth and undemanding yet soulfully compelling. Hit play and you’ll find elements of Afro Beat, Reggaeton and Hip Hop under a hazily comforting production.

I absolutely adore the eclecticism to Quay Rashad’s high-vibe entrancingly rhythmic sound. There’s a true sense that the breaking artist just let their soul flow right into the soundscape and it didn’t struggle to lead the way. It’s no surprise that there’s already plenty of hype around the release. Get him on your radar.

Wicked Penman Serves up Contemporary Reggae Dancehall with “Real Warriors JAM”

It’s rhythmic, it’s salacious, it’s fresh, it’s Wicked Penman’s new drop “Real Warriors JAM”. The London-born, Jamaican bred artist has fused together the perfect cocktail of influences to create a sun-soaked vibrant work of aural alchemy which is sure to be of appeal to any fans of Reggae and Dancehall. While there are plenty of odes to the roots of the genre, there’s also plenty of fresh inspiration which ensures Real Warriors Jam deserves a spot on your contemporary playlists.

One of the most distinctive elements in Wicked Penman’s latest single is the simplicity of the lyricism which allows you to slip into the soundscape and appreciate the sentiment which has been poured into Real Warriors JAM. With each of his tracks, the up and coming artist tells a different story, and with Real Warriors JAM you get the story of the working class which I’m sure plenty of people will find a resonance within.
