Dancehall never ever sounded like this!!!

Who said Dancehall isn't versatile' dem lie,  I have been listening and am pleasantly surprised how the new Dancehall artists are showing their true talent and versatility in recent recordings way outside the traditional reggae and dancehall arenas.

I found these musical SHOTS recently not getting airplay in Jamaica, probably doesn't fit the traditional limited formats we have. But "trust" each one of these is a straight musical backflip as it puts a Dancehall artist without compromise in totally new genres of music and they don't loose a beat to keep it authentic while adding a kaleidoscope of sound to the these club bangers.

First up the leader of the Reggae Revival Chronixx, btw check out his Chronology Tour currently winding down in the US and Canada and coming to the Caribbean soon. Here he teams up with UK Heavyweights Sub Focus and Rudimental  for a fusion of  reggae, DnB and soul ... maaaad

Then there is Shenseea, the hottest female DJ in Dancehall right now, the "It" girl " who fresh off her Tim Westwood freestyle shows she can rap and DJ with the same intensity. Here she sounds quite polished as she jumps on a Drum n Bass riddim and truly soars. The song has a piano heavy melody and an infectious flute hook,....Maaaaad 

Then sound di alarm for the Unruly one , Popcaan on this Gospel House track with the music legend  Chaka Khan . Yall remember Chak...Chaka..Chakka Khan from the 80s (I Feel for You) a timeless classic. Well she still sounds good and in this unusual pairing that works they grace each other vocals on "Say a Prayer". This song captures a soul-rich gospel sound, an uplifting song with still an emotive feel.

Maaaaaad Music mi tell unoo
