• Shaiah Coore the bassist for Zilla dropping the full segment of "Lion Paw Riddim" including absolute smasher "Chronixx - Out Deh" and fellow quality cuts from the likes of Lutan Fyah, Kelissa, Keznamdi and more! Much recommended!
• Ghetto Vanessa brings in something else on the table. Highly energized bashment, tribal - footwork-esq beats with vocals from Aidonia, A-Game and Eii Nation. This one bomb!
• World renowned dancehall artist Popcaan delivering brand new. Smokey rhythm with addictive vocals on this badman tune..!
•Dub-Stuy Records welcomes a new artist to its ranks, California’s Dubamine. The young producer has been active since 2009, with a string of digital-only releases, and String Up The Sound marks his vinyl debut with four tracks that trace direct links between roots, reggae, hip-hop, and bass music. The EP features the vocal talents of Jamaica’s Blackout JA, London’s Brother Culture, a long-standing voice in the sound system community, and DC-based Carlton Livingston, a Jamaican legend best known for his work with the Greensleeves and Jah Life labels.
• Oneness Records outta Germany dropping a tight rhythm set with stars across the globe like Morgan Heritage, Gappy Ranks, Kelissa, Richie Stepehens, Anthony B and more! Massive!
• Brazilian arranger and composer, the genius like Arthur Verocai's heavy rare first album getting nicely reissued by Mr Bongo! Beautifully recorded well arranged instrumentation of Brazilian rare groove / jazz classic!!
• Lost classics from Alpha & Omega rediscovered in their vault seeing the light of day through Steppas Records imprint. Crucial UK dub and reggae cuts produced between 1989 and 1995. Seriously weighty.
• Legendary Jah Shaka meets Aswad originally released in 1984, this astonishingly deep dubwise features known rhythms like Drum Song and Cassava Piece into different dimension. For those who are yet to witness, this one is a must.
•Along with Sleng Teng and Tempo, Stalag is without the doubt the biggest dancehall rhythm of the 80's. Bam Bam especially needs no introduction been sampled countless times on various genres and appearing on films etc.
•Legendary dancehall artist, Nitty Gritty's unarguable digital killer for Vena! Glamorous out of key style in the proper 80's manner, along with Delroy Katt and Sanchez this cut is a must have, regardless.

In 1967 Ras Michael began to play occasional recording sessions for Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd with Jackie Mittoo and Soul Vendors at Studio One. Instead of getting paid for his work Ras Michael requested studio time for recordings for his own Zion Disc productions as the Sons of Negus Churchical Host. Seven inch releases at Zion Disc in 1967 and 1968, included ‘A Psalm Of Praises To The Most High’, ‘Come Down’, ‘King’s Highway’ to name a few, and all were unequivocal in form and content. The records did not trouble charts and none were released outside of Kingston…
“Like reggae is a vision. Reggae is the word that hits at the heartstrings the mind can’t control. I and I get the message of Rastafari out through reggae. It is the black music line of message to the world. It is the black Rastaman line of message to the world. It is the metaphorical Black Star Line…” Ras Michael
