Slughead releases new single

Fast-rising artiste Slughed found it with his newest single, Ghetto Youths Dem a Feel It.

The song is featured on the Bad World rhythm, which also features Ryme Minista, TeeJay, and more. The rhythm is distributed by digital giant Zojak Worldwide.

Slughed expressed how happy he was with the overall reception of the song.

"The song has been getting some really good reviews, and mi thankful and happy for that. The song has garnered a lot of buzz from the local radio stations," he said.

Slughed is also working on some new projects with various producers. Fans can also look out for the music video for Ghetto Youths Dem a Feel It.

The official video was shot in Berrydale, Portland, and is directed by Ramon Lindsay of One View studio.

Hylita enjoying exposure 

Dancehall artiste Hylita is pleased with the response to his new singles, Glory and Neva Hold We Down.

Both songs were produced by Thee Khemist and released on the Thee Khemist Records/Studio Vibes Records imprint last month.

Since then, they have enjoyed steady airplay both locally and overseas.

"I'm thrilled with the response that my songs are getting. Every time I touch the streets, people are telling me how much they love them. I feel good that my music is doing well, and I have to thank all the DJs who are supporting my career," said the artiste.

He added, "As soon the video is filmed and edited, we're going to release it. I'm not easing up with the promotion of these two songs. I'm also contemplating the possibility of shooting a video for Neva Hold We Down," he said.

The hard-working entertainer is also working on his EP, Black Wall Street.

Bout Noon is the latest video from his anticipated album, A Matter Of Time.

"The song speaks for itself, and the message and mood is pretty straightforward. It speaks of sacrifice, time apart from loved ones, and wanting to reconnect and spend time," he said. "With the video, we wanted to draw comparison to what it is like for so many persons in Jamaica who work late into the night trying to make ends meet while thinking of those persons who are close to them."

Protoje talks about new video

A Matter Of Time will be released via Overstand Entertainment/In. Digg. Nation in conjunction with Easy Star Records (North America).

The 10-track LP, produced by Protoje's long-time collaborator Winta James and recorded primarily at Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, maintains the essence of Jamaican roots music while channelling a wide array of styles from dancehall, dub, hip hop, and rock.

Among the tracks are his popular banger Blood Money, the orchestral, Ethio-jazz-meets-ska intro, Flames, and his powerful new anthem, No Guarantee (the latter two both featuring Chronixx).

The album will be released globally on June 29 and on vinyl on August 3. Fans can pre-order the LP now on Protoje.com.

"It's not as traditional as my last album, but it's still authentic," explains Protoje. "It's more innovative, more global and more experimental. I want to elevate reggae culture and the world's perception of it."
