Released earlier this year, Style, a catchy dancehall song by New York based recording artist Shootii, is getting steady rotation via some significant platforms in Jamaica.
In addition to being featured on popular digital channels like Akam Entertainment, Style is also getting rotation on IRIE FM and is even now being played at some of the biggest dancehall sessions on the island; namely, Uptown Mondays and Stone Love’s Weddy Weddy Wednesdays.
Style is a typical club / street record, on which Shootii laments about his “style and pattern” that’s making him virtually irresistible to women. The artist and his team are now putting ideas together for an official video.
Established reggae artist Turbulence has collaborated with emerging roots singer Likkle Lightning on the remix of Likkle Lightning’s track, Early Morning Flash. The original version of the song is on the Conditions of Life album (Likkle Lightning's first and only studio album), which was released in January, 2017 on the Sonhi Production label.
Having shared the stage with Turbulence on a number of occasions, in both the United States and Africa, Likkle Lightning considers the artist a true friend in the industry. As such, he initiated the idea of a collaboration, which resulted in the Early Morning Flash Remix.

Karamanti now has a digital radio station that streams all her songs, some of her interviews, commercials and general updates, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Recently, Karamanti announced that she will be voicing free dubplates for DJs, sound systems and radio programs that have been supporting her music over the years. Since the announcement, she has been bombarded with questions from several selectors wanting information about specific songs. Hence, she compiled as much of her audio content that she was able to find on one platform, a digital radio station.
Karamanti Radio is now live, and can be streamed by anyone, anywhere in the world, at any time. This is the ideal station for fans and supporters, as Karamanti has recorded literally hundreds of songs in her short career. As the CEO/owner of Blakkwuman22 Music, a record label that often collaborates with other artists, Karamanti Radio will also feature songs produced by her label. Every week additional audio will be added to the station’s playlist and from time to time Karamanti will go live on air.

Lt. Stitchie is currently putting the finishing touches on his soon to be released album. The project, which has been in the works for over a year, will feature collaborations with: Agent Sasco aka Assassin, Million Stylez, Lukie D, Fantan Mojah and Ricky Stereo. Most of the production was done in France by Manudigital, and though a title has already been decided, Stitchie and his team are not yet ready to share it with the public. The album will be released on the Flash Hit Records label before the end of this year.
Unlike his recent albums, this one will be extremely hardcore, as the Governor seems to be intentionally addressing the obvious negative tone that is dominating the overall music industry.
When asked why this album is so hard, this is what Lt. Stitchie had to say:
"This message of righteousness must be heard by everyone, and particularly in a language understood by everyone, from the deepest corner of the ghetto to the highest pinnacle of the hill top. Across every socio economic strata of societies on the face of this earth. I have the skills set to be seriously effective in this hardcore way, so I am chosen for this time. Evil and falsehood are rapidly becoming the new norm and it would falsely appear that those of us who stand for righteousness are dormant and becoming obsolete. My hardcore delivery and message lucidly obliterate this lie. I am holding back no punches and taking no prisoners ... Hardcore all the way."
