DJ War

Earlier this week we gave you DJ War’s Top 5 dancehall tracks at the moment. The list included songs from Popcaan, Vybz Kartel, Mavado and more check it out! In this post we’re going to to give you a rundown of the latest reggae tracks for those of you that enjoy a mellow sound. Let us know what you think!



Tarrus Riley – Antique Loving

Lover’s Rock, Reggae, Culture and the odd Dancehall tune – Is there a sound Mr. Riley can’t master? Antique Loving an upbeat Lover’s Rock track from the talent artist is another solid effort from ‘Mr. Singy Singy’ – who is no doubt one of the most consistent artists around at the moment. “Just like the old school, give you that antique loving baby” this latest reggae track will definitely having you rocking away! Take a listen to the track below:

Christopher Martin – Cheater’s Prayer

Young Christopher Martin is definitely a shining light in the reggae industry, which no doubt has seen a significantly lower amount of young artists emerge in comparison to Dancehall. ‘Cheater’s Prayer’ is a catchy song and deals candidly with a controversial topic – cheating! Chris croons “Oh Lord don’t let me cheat on my girlfriend” and battles throughout the song to reason why he should be faithful to his good girl. He still asserts: “But Lord if you can’t stop me from cheating…just don’t let me get caught!” This one I’m sure will definitely be the source of many a heated debate in the Caribbean community, especially with the twist at the end of the music video. Also be sure to check out the response from female reggae veteran Ce’Cile. Here’s the video for Cheater’s Prayer:

Nikesha Lindo – Closer To Me

Nikesha Lindo, younger sister of seasoned vet Kashief Lindo has been making waves on the reggae scene with her remarkable sound and impeccable songwriting skills. With a number of solid efforts to her name in the past few months, the ‘Closer To Me’ singer seems set to follow in the footsteps of her older brother with this latest reggae tune. This track over the Delly Ranx produced Turnpike riddim will definitely be a hit with reggae lovers worldwide! Have a listen here.

Nikesha Lindo - Next Big Thing?


Denyque – Love Hurts

The Faithful Riddim which features a host of artists such as Khago, I-Octane, Christopher Martin and Wayne Wonder is definitely one of the best Reggae riddims circulating at the moment. But female singer Denyque’s emotionally charged effort on the riddim definitely stands out and she seems to be singing for a lot of ladies and men even, who have gone through relationship woes. Solid vocals and songwriting on the track make it a clear winner! Check it out.

Beres Brown – Who Can I Trust

Beres Brown star of reality show Rising Stars has shown himself as a genuine talent with consistent performances on the show and a number of solid tracks since being disqualified from the show. ‘Who Can I Trust’ an ode to the greatness of Jah is a tune you can definitely ‘hold a medz’ to and Brown demonstrates his vocal ability on the Payday Music produced Real Reggae Riddim. As the name suggests – his latest reggae effort is a thorough reggae track I’m sure will be enjoyed by reggae lover’s worldwide!
