Jah 9 - Avacado (Official Video)

I discovered Jah 9's music through a reggae mix which I had downloaded some months ago, and was instantly drawn in by the sincerity of her music. Recognised by many after the release of her track entitled Brothers on the Honeypot Riddim, Jah 9 continues to provide us with beautiful reggae music, and some genuine food for thought.

Firstly, I encourage you to listen to the track Brothers which is featured on the much loved Honey Pot riddim, produced by Silly Walks Discotheque.

The track to follow is her most recent video release for a track entitled Avocado.In her own words, she sums up the track below.
"I am very excited to share this song and happy I was able to tell the story in my own way, honouring the light hearted nature with which it was written but still injecting important messages in a more universally appealing way. Avocado is that spoon full of sugar to make the medicine go down”

Konshens - Caribbean Party (Official Video)

What I love most about this video is that it captures something about Caribbean culture that I really love. From just a few messages via social networking, people came out in their numbers to support the Subkonshus team in the making of this video. As is evident, people came together to hold a good vibe, and essentially enjoy a real Caribbean party.

Good Book Riddim

Easily one of my favourite riddims of 2014, Good Book is one of those infectious riddims that I have not been able to get out of my head from the very first listen. Produced by H20 Records, this one has rightfully seen heavy rotation on the Dancehall circuit. These days it isn't very often that I like every piece on a riddim, but I cannot seem to fault any of tracks that have been voiced on this one. To pay homage to a riddim that I love so much, I have featured the official videos from Demarco, Konshens, and Delly Ranx's pieces on the riddim below.

A Special Delivery From Javada

Some of you may recognise Javada from his numerous appearances, both on and off stage, alongside Subkonshus Music CEO Konshens. By means of introduction, he is an artist hailing from the Subkonshus team, who has recently provided us with a special delivery of his own.

This special delivery comes in the form of his debut mixtape, Rude & Smooth, which gives us an insight into what we can expect from Javada as an artist, whilst revealing the jovial side of his character. Often providing nothing but music and laughter, he is definitely one to follow Instagram (@javadasubk), and an artist that I am sure we will continue to hear him from in the near future.

Check out the latest video from Javada, for a track entitled Anything You Want which is also featured on the Rude & Smooth mixtape.
