Baltimore artist GBM Roddy serves up Reggae-soaked Hip Hop with latest single “Queen”

“Queen” is the upcoming single from Baltimore-based Hip Hop Rap artist GBM Roddy who has used a melodically easy groove for the soundscape while the rap verses will spill plenty of momentum into the sun-soaked Reggae-infused beats.

Straight from the first verse, you’re hit with the rhythmic accessibility of the polished single, which may not be the most distinctive Hip Hop track we’ve heard this year, but there’s no denying that it’s a fresh mix with a solid structure and a palpable amount of contemporary appeal.

Luddy Releases Their Latest Reggae Slow Jam “Gye Makoma” ft. C-Tea

Up and coming artist Luddy’s latest single “Gye Makoma (Take My Heart)” featuring C-Tea is potentially the most ambient offering of Reggae-Infused R&B that you could possibly slip into. Describing the downtempo mix as mesmerising almost feels like an understatement. The chemistry between the two vocalists whose harmonic vocals sit in perfect synergy with the organic beats is something that you’ll have to experience for yourselves to fully appreciate.

While tracks usually gain momentum as they progress, Luddy has flipped the archetypal structures and allows the soundscape to become slower, yet even more immersive as the track seamlessly moves toward the fadeout. It is only when you reach the end of Gye Makoma that you can truly appreciate the urban aural alchemy which Luddy has cooked up.

M unknow – Mouv Your Body: Sun-Soaked Rhythmically-Rendered Reggae R&B

Summer may be almost over, but there’s still plenty of time to soak up the vibrant Reggae beats found in up and coming French artist M unknow’s latest single “Mouv Your Body”.

The lyrics may switch between French and English, but even if you’re ignorantly unilingual like me, it’s more than easy to get swept up in this sticky-sweet mix of simple yet primally rhythmic beats which create the perfect platform for M unknow’s unflinchingly charismatic vocals.

So, if your up-vibe playlists are sounding a little flat, Mouv Your Body will be an incredibly welcome addition. There are no frills or excessive effects in Mouv Your Body, just efficaciously arrestive euphoria which serves as the perfect introduction to M unknow’s high-vibe approach to Reggae R&B.

JAHBOY – You’re Beautiful: A Soulful R&B Reggae Serenade

JAHBOY’s latest single “You’re Beautiful (And You Don’t Even Know)” dropped on June 7th, and the soulful R&B Reggae serenade is already well on its way to becoming a viral hit.

I’ll make no bones about saying that usually tracks which proclaim beauty in this way are dripping with insincerity, but that’s exactly where JAHBOY sets himself apart with his almost impossibly resonant soundscape.

Straight from the first verse, it’s perceptible from the tonality in the piano keys that You’re Beautiful is going to be a captivating single, but the real weight of the single doesn’t hit until you’re in the confines of the sticky sweet, organically rhythmic chorus.

You’re Beautiful is just one of the singles which you will find on JAHBOY’s latest LP “Green Project” in which the artist continues to prove that with more artists like him on the airwaves, the world would probably be a happier place.

Marvy – Believe: Charismatically Prodigal Indie R&B Pop with a Sun-Soaked Reggae Infusion

As soon as you hit play up on up and coming artist Marvy’s latest single “Believe” you know you’re going to be hooked right until the fade out, the authenticity and unpredictability of the soundscape comes in waves to submerge you even deeper into the high-vibe single.

Not only does Marvy possess vocals which practically drip with charisma, but he takes his sound one step further by mixing together a smorgasbord of elements to create a truly prodigal track. Marvy found the perfect balance between layers of Pop, R&B, Indie and Reggae to create a contemporary, melodic, soul-soaked single with Believe. There’s a resonant amount of sincerity behind Believe, both found in the vocals and the lyrics which doesn’t happen all too often with R&B Pop tracks, yet Marvy has just proven how refreshing it is to truly make a connection with a track.

JayQ The Legend – Body Talk (Raw): A Summer Reggae Playlist Essential

Summer is upon us, naturally, that means we’ll be treated to plenty of sun-soaked Reggae-infused R&B beats which will become the soundtrack to our summer. One big contender for a spot in the Summer charts is JayQ The Legend’s debut 2019 single Body Talk. The single keeps the sentiment simple, yet at the same time JayQ The Legend offers enough lyrical ingenuity to make his debut resonate with the listener.

Even though Jayq The Legend cooked up a track which will undoubtedly become a playlist essential for many people, Distinctively, the lyrics gave the track an almost freestyle quality which puts you closer to the sound and allowed you to appreciate JayQ The Legend as an authentic artist even more.

Bennet Stephens Pours Soul into Reggae with His Latest Single “Party”

Reggae artist Bennet Stephens has recently released his latest single “Party”, and whilst there is plenty of vibrant rhythm within the single, Party offers a smoother, slower mix which oozes pure soul.

It’s not all too often that you can describe a Reggae single as cathartic but the light tonality of the single paired with the comforting waves of rhythm transform Bennet Stephen’s track into one which is all too easy to slip into and appreciate the mellifluous vibes.

The only slight criticism I would have of the track is the use of vocal repetition, however considering that the beat is almost transcendental, Party is still a single which is more than worth adding to your playlists.

Gotaflika Cooks up a Sun-Soaked Afrobeat Storm with Single “Promise”

Gotaflika may have left Africa behind him on his relocation to Los Angeles, but he made sure that he brought the ever-vibrant afrobeat rhythms with him to pour into pure vibe tracks such as “Promise”.  Promise is just one of the tracks which can be found on the breaking artist’s latest aptly titled EP “From Africa to L.A” which will invite you along on the journey with him!

The excellent production on the single makes it all too easy to crank up the volume and let the energy behind the track envelop you. I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard Gotaflika’s name a lot more in the future for his deft ability at cooking up a sun-soaked storm with his hyped beats and just as vibrant vocals which made sure that his passion never knew restraint.

Etana ft. Dan Aceda – Look to You: Reggae for the Soul

In a soulfully sweet collaboration two ethereally talented artists combined under the Herbalist’s production to create a Reggae Soul track which oozes good-vibe appeal. In the collaboration between Etana and Dan Aceda the chemistry between the two artists is instantly perceptible, “Look to You” isn’t merely two vocalists offering their talent over the same beat, there’s a synergy between them which makes the track so infectiously indulgent.  As you’d expect from a beat produced by Herbalist, there’s plenty of a Funk and Groove written into the acoustic soundscape. The bends of the guitar combined with the ska rhythm of the bass to create a sound so sun-soaked that there’s no better track to get you through the winter.
