Dancehall Star D’Angel’s Got ‘Carib Life ATL’ Fever

Atlanta, Georgia — February 2021 — Dancehall’s First Lady D’Angel has caught the Carib Life ATL fever!! The “Talk  About” singer will be hosting three installments of the explosive TV show’s Weekly Recap, starting February 7 on the @dangelmusic and @cariblifeatl instagram pages. Well known in entertainment and social media circles, there’s no doubt that D’Angel will be a hostess with the mostess, as she kicks off her stint interviewing Carib Life ATL cast member Patricia Tonge Edigin (nee Henry).   

Carib Life ATL is a reality TV series from Executive Producer Damon “Bware” Vanzant, son of TV personality (“Fix My Life”) and literary giant Iyanla Vanzant. The series trails an amazing cast of leading Caribbean influencers in Atlanta, as they gear up for the Atlanta and Dekalb Carnivals, which are now split. 

The buzz of Carib Life ATL was so nice, they had to air it twice. Audiences can now catch the Encore of Carib Life ATL Season 1 on One Caribbean Television every Monday at 9:30 PM ET and throughout the week. In Jamaica and other Caribbean islands, One Caribbean Television airs on Digicel and Flow. In the U.S., One Caribbean Television is available on Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV streaming platforms and cable provider RCN. 

Patricia, who impressively doubles as President of Atlanta Caribbean Carnival and D’Angel’s manager, is one of Carib Life ATL’s most no nonsense cast members. Throughout Season 1 of Carib Life ATL, Patricia dishes her sentiments straight with no chaser as she deals with the communal and logistical pressures that come in tow with producing the massive economic driving Atlanta Caribbean Carnival. 

There’s no question that there is a natural chemistry between the Antigua & Barbuda born business woman and D’Angel, so one can only imagine quite the candid, classy and possibly raw discussion.  Following Patricia’s inaugural guest spot, a new member of Carib Life ATL’s vibrant cast will be featured on each Weekly ReCap installment, including Marlon Revo, Martine, Red Carpet Shelley, Annie Love and Alex and Brandon of Unique Soundz. Capitalizing on the show’s growing buzz, Carib Life ATL has also enlisted the likes of an additional Caribbean entertainment personality to host some of the post shows. 

D’Angel’s bubbly personality, on air personna and position in the world of Dancehall entertainment make her an ideal interim host of the Carib Life ATL Recap. 

There’s a lot more in store for the Carib Life Media franchise suggests Vanzant, who has eyes set on launching an app and expanding to several other markets, including Jamaica. But for right now, audiences can enjoy an Encore of Carib Life ATL Season 1 and get ready for Season 2 this spring.

Mr. Easy ‘Conquers The World’ with New Music

Fresh off the heels of his 4th studio album “Legendary,” Mr. Easy proves that he has the formula for a timeless sound and appeal. The robust Reggae project sees the singer at his vocal best with songs that spark the music lover in everyone who listens.

The late 2020 release is garnering attention from the masses, spawning a frenzy from fans, DJs and media alike. Garnering airplay on a cross-section of radio stations, including core and mainstream markets, Mr. Easy’s “Conquer The World” has clearly got next!

“Conquer The World” is an ideal follow up to the festive “Guarantee,” which was written during the pandemic blues to enable the masses to live out their “outside” cravings vicariously.
While “Guarantee” fills a “social” void  during these trying times, the upbeat “Conquer The World” offers much needed inspiration.

On the feel good, second single from the “Legendary” album,  Mr. Easy takes fans to far places. Whether the powerful hook “Conquer The World, Take on the Globe” is interperted literally to traveling the world or takes on a more figurative meaning of achieving goals with no limits,  the song is motivational. Frankly, that’s what the world needs right now, a bit of encouragement.

“I make music that is my truth, which I believe wide listening audiences can relate to well,” says Mr. Easy. “Part of the reason I believe my music resonates with fans is because its based on real life stories.”

“I don’t stray away from my formula,” says the “Drive Me Crazy” crooner.

Mentored by the legendary Beres Hammond, the vocal and content maturity of Mr. Easy peaks on “Legendary.” With an amazing 9-track listing, every song on “Legendary” is stellar and can stand on its own. The Hammon produced “Always Be There” is also quickly becoming a fan and DJ favorite.

Since the arrival of “Legendary,” Mr. Easy has amassed dozens of interviews and support for the project. A heightened media presence has connected the diverse talent to fans around the world — all from the very comfort of his home and studio. Like other entertainers, Mr. Easy has spiked his digital presence since touring and in person activities (at least in most places) have come to a hault.


Edley Shine’s New Visual and Single ‘BIG MON TING’ Boasts Grown Up Music and Vibes

International artist Edley Shine has perfected an Adult Contemporary Dancehall space with his music, style and vibes. The amazing artist, notably dubbed “Da Big Voice,” once again proves that he can deliver grown up and entertaining music with the self reflecting “BIG MON TING.”

While “BIG MON TING” is personal to Edley Shine, penned upon finding out he was having a daughter, the song is bound to genuinely resonate with audiences far and wide. Without question, anyone who is orchestrating their evolution and next life moves will connect to the Riddim Boss produced “BIG MON TING” Video & Maxi Single, which includes an 8 Bar Intro and Acoustic Piano Live version on all video and streaming platforms.

When discussing current music and life movements, the legendary artist says, “My main concern is being the best family man I can be and making art to the best of my ability.”

Throw all that wisdom over a badddd riddim and you’ve got yourself a tune worthy of you rocking out to all year long and beyond. Consider “BIG MON TING” the newest addition to Edley Shine’s growing arsenal of timeless classics.

“BIG MON TING” is a highly cinematic video shot by Lapo of Lapography with motion graphics and editing by Studio G.O.A.T from Brazil. It serves as the ideal visual companion to Edley Shine’s “BIG MON TING” single.

” ‘BIG MON TING’ is a visual representation of my mindset in music and life,” says Edley Shine sincerely.  “I live in my own world of creativity unshackled by the pressures of fame and social media hype.”

“BIG MON TING” hails from Edley Shine’s “Based on Talent” EP, which was released in May of 2020 during the height of the pandemic. Notably, the EP (on his Shinealous Records imprint) has amassed a wealth of media attention and thousands of streams across DSPs. This is an incredible feat, as the release was totally independent without any features or financial backing from a major recording company.

“Based on Talent” is not the only exciting project hailing from “Da Big Voice,” as he worked with Studio G.O.A.T on the international and powerful “We Can’t Breathe” for Brazilian Artist Monkey Jhayam. Much to his credit, Edley Shine appeared in a Walmart commercial that aired during the 2020 B.E.T. Soul Train Awards. The legendary artist has been writing and recording for several Cali Roots projects including Pepper, Producer’s Jungle Josh & David Forel (Left Coast Riddim) and Philippian’s based Peace Band to be released in 2021.



Jazzy Lei Takes Listeners on a Reggae High with Debut EP ‘Satya’

Out now is the delightful debut EP from Jazzy called “Satya.” A sanskrit word for “The Truth,” the beautiful singer, songwriter and musician who hails from France, upholds every bit of it on her new Reggae effort. In fact, trans 6 mind blowing tracks, the chanteuse croons her truths, complete with  messages of positivity, enlightenment, social consciousness and reflection.

Stunning vocals adorn powerhouse riddims, infused with elements of dub, soul and world music on “Satya.” The musically magical EP was co-produced by Jazzy Lei and Jamaican artist and producer Roe Summerz, who she connected with via the legendary Edley Shine.

In the hook, she croons, “We can’t run away from ourselves.” Jazzy Lei explains,   “Ultimately, just like Jonah, we can do whatever we like, try to flee, try not to look at ourselves in the mirror, filling our time with all sort of hobbies and entertainment, but we’re just loosing time because our destiny is our destiny and we must be God’s tool at any cost.”

The balance of songs on “Satya” are equally powerful, invoking us to look within and take steps to recognize our power and purpose in this journey called life. Impactful messages over signature Reggae grooves provide the ideal pandemic playlist.

It’s safe to say that absolutely every track on this stellar effort is a banger, literally! While “Bang Bang” may have you ready for a revolution, improvising lick shots inna the air, “Burning” and “Break Free” will move you to spread your wings and soar!  “Satya” will take you away unapologetically. Whether it’s Jazzy Lei’s amazing vocals, guitar riffs, incredible productions or inspirational lyrics, “Satya” will  leave an indelible mark on Reggae music.

Jazzy Lei’s love of music manifested during childhood as a resident choir singer, soloist and musician. With a craft and musical passion impressively evolving over the years, by 2007, the France native joined the Creole Hip Hop group “Sked Skwad,” where she was officially crowned Jazzy Lei.  The amazing artist’s entry into the Reggae world culminated with the digital and vinyl 2014 release “Change” on Dub Livity Sound System’s Frenchtown HiFi Vol. 1. Released in the U.S., “Change” has been a top pick  among international DJs and music lovers.

Badda General Sets Dancehall Ablaze with Debut ‘Money App PROJECT’ Album

New York, New York — November 2020 (Acclaim PR) — When it comes to Reggae and Dancehall music and culture, it can often be hard for artists outside of Jamaica to find success. But this did not ring true for U.S. based Badda General, aka Omari Lawrence, in any shape or form. The amazing talent has defied the odds, setting dancehall ablaze with his fully loaded debut album “Money App PROJECT” and scoring attention from worldwide audiences.

Released to a flurry of excitement, “Money App PROJECT” notably climbed it’s way up the iTunes Reggae Chart, peaking at a hot spot of #4. Lots of fan love, combined with an intense media campaign and massive DJ support, thrust Badda General to prime position during release week. The selector-turned-artist capitalized on his omnipresence, making it his duty to consistently keep fans engaged on social media and sound systems laced with dub plates.

“I am overwhelmed by the support ‘Money App PROJECT’ has received upon its release,” says Badda General. “I truly desired to make music people enjoy and I am humbled that my music connects.”

Chock full of 10-tracks, the “Money App PROJECT” album wows listeners from start to finish. Released on Badda General’s Real Squad Records imprint, the well curated track list features songs with both Wayne Wonder and ZJ Liquid. The deejay’s debut effort boasts songs that ooze fun and catchy hooks.

Ingeniously narrating stories from a male perspective, it would be a disservice to not salute how hints of humor are seamlessly interweaved into Badda General’s heralded “Money App PROJECT” album, along with impressive word play atop banging riddims!

Ahead of the highly anticipated “Money App PROJECT” album, Badda General amassed attention with hit songs including the title track “Money App,” “I Wish” and “Outside,” among others. The trio of songs served as a fiery prelude to the “Money App PROJECT,” leaving fans craving more.

But it was “I Wish” that catapulted Badda General to Dancehall celeb status. The talented artist declares, “‘I Wish’ is my most successful song to date!” That’s no surprise, as the ultra get back tune, relatable to many, took over tik tok and other social media.

The red-hot “I Wish” also garnered airplay on top radio stations in Jamaica and other core Caribbean markets to spins on Hot 97, BBC Radio 1Xtra, 99 Jamz and a wide array of other stations. Live videos of influencers and leading radio personalities playing the catchy “I Wish” went viral, further elevating the Badda General buzz.

There is genuinely a lot more in store on “Money App PROJECT,” as every song on the hard-hitting debut shines. Money is a popular theme on the album, as heard in tracks “New Money,” “Run It Forward,” “House” and naturally, “Money App.” But other spot-on topics are also “deh bout.” The legendary Wayne Wonder lends his signature vocals to “Treez” — a slow tempo ode to the high grade. Meanwhile, ZJ Liquid joins Badda General for the upbeat and radio friendly “Spring Water.”

Whether Badda General is detailing if a girl plays him, they must “Run It Forward” (i.e., pay back all the money he has spent), wowing the ladies on “Swing Song,” or killing ’em with “Bay Style” (and a wicked flute), the popular dancehall artist ensures consistent and entertaining music through out the “Money App PROJECT.”

The pandemic has forced many artists to tap into their innermost creative beings. However, Badda General did a complete reinvention. Hailing from a world of sound system (DJ) culture via Pieces, later Madd Squad and music production, Badda General decided to pursue artistry head on and fans are so glad he did.
Badda General is undeniably one of the “Baddest” artists cruising Jamaica’s musical landscape and as far as fans can see has much success ahead.
