Speaking exclusively to Natasha Von Castle from his home in Jamaica, Sean shared his views on the industry as a whole, including the number of mainstream artists who are adopting Dancehall and or Dancehall elements in their music.
Sean’s focus is on his new album Full Frequency which is due to be released soon. Full Frequency is the follow up to Tomahawk Technique, ushering in the ‘TTFF’ era!
Always one to make his views clear, Sean takes the time to correct a mis-quote issued by another media outlet about his views on Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg). What does the artist really think about Snoop Lion’s album?
Coming from a sports background, what similarities does Sean find between sports and music? We get this and more from the artist. Tricia ‘ZJ Sparks’ Spence speaks with one of Reggae’s brightest sensations, Jesse Royal who is also known as the Small Axe. Not one to give too many interviews, Jesse shares the inspiration for his song “Light Like a Feather’ while sharing his views on the difference between a ‘glamour Ras’ and a real Rasta.
Rounding out the interview, Jesse says that “I work on myself; my mentality, spirituality and physicality. It is all a oneness. From that comes everything else.” What question did Sparkie ask to prompt this response?! Nicholai Khan’s art is 100% inspired by Spirituality, and is very hard to resist when seen online or in person. Having traveled to 7 continents, visiting as many cultures and learning several spiritual practices, Nicholai explains how he interprets the energy of Bob Marley which became a fan favorite in Queen’s and attracting visitors to ponder the piece’s meaning.
Nicholai says “believe in something so big, and I believe we are all included in that. The fact of the matter is that even though we are separate, we get to share our universes with each other.” Heike Dempster interviews Bahamian artist Motive, while Adrian Daniel, J.
