On Friday October 28th, 2016, Montreal’s own Scroogie of renowned Sound System “Little Thunder,” will debut their production label “Little Thunder Music” with the release of “Scroogie Tropics.” The compilation album features recording artists: Kaisha Lee, Lukie D, Lutan Fyah, Turbulence, Sizzla and Montreal’s uprising songstress, Kayla Allen.
With a smooth, yet modernized reggae rhythm, the chosen artists speak on a range of topics, from culture, love, to life’s struggles and how they may be overcome. This album was influenced by the realities of life and seeks to provide vicarious experiences, peace of mind and hope for others.

The songs are currently only available to disc-jockeys as the official digital retail date has not yet been announced.

Biggy Music’s latest project is a Reggae compilation featuring four beautiful tracks. He calls the project THE REVOLT EXPERIENCE and says that it is his contribution to Reggae Month (which is now being celebrated in Jamaica).
THE REVOLT EXPERIENCE features “can’t take Jah away” by Deep Jahi, “carry me thru” by Nagas, “ex-man” by Bugle and “hard ears” by Bushman. All four tracks are powerful in their own right and a sincere pleasure to listen to. Major credit goes out to the team at Biggy Music who continues to contribute quality music to Jamaica’s Reggae and Dancehall Industry.
Here is a medley mix of all four songs:
As Reggae and Dancehall music continue to grow on the continent of Africa so too are African producers expanding their catalogue with new riddim driven releases. Criticise Riddim is produced by Black Kulcha Music which is owned and operated by Mark Darlington, a Ghanaian producer who is currently based in the UK. The project features a wide range of artists from Ghana, Malawi, UK and Jamaica. Criticise Riddim is a very relaxing, one drop Reggae compilation that you can have playing in the background on one of those laid back, take it easy days.
