Some really good reggae and dancehall tracks were released lately. I want to share a few with you here in this blogpost. And do a little introduction on some of the artist and their tunes.

I also made some new riddims and beats myself the last months. You can check the latest riddim here: In My Mind Riddim

In this blog post i will share the Best Reggae and Dancehall tracks lately.

1. J. Capri – Boom and Bend over

Awesome riddim created by Head Concussion Records (producer Rvssian). The song is called Boom and Bend over by J. Capri

J.Capri, also known as Jordan Phillips is Head Concussions Records first lady, as she says it. And known from “Reverse it” and “Whine & Kotch” with Charly Black. I like the reggae mixed up with some reggaeton, moombahton and bubbling. Some great producing skills by Rvssian. And off course the smooth voice of J. Capri..

2. Clay – First Chapter

Clay, also known as Clayton Morris is no stranger within the reggae scene. He did some great work allready on the song “Hold my Hand” by Sean Paul, which he produced together with Arif Cooper.

He did some great album releases allready, but i like the new one called “First Chapter”. One of my favorite songs from the album is called; “Fire”, you can listen to the song below on SoundCloud

3. Christopher Martin – Prayer

Christopher Martin has been around a while in the reggae scene and i must say im always a big fan of his songs and creations. Chris won Digicel rising stars in 2005 (sort of Jamaican idols). Also worked together with Arif Cooper, Shane Brown and Christopher Birch. Famous by the songs; nah go change, take my wings and jamaican girls.

This one is also produced by Rvssian, Head Concussion Records

5. Tell Me Lies – Celia ft. Shaggy

Shaggy is off course known for Carolina, Mr. Boombastic and other great hit songs. This one is recorded together with Celia and produced by Costi (the music producer). Its recorded in 2013, but i think its suits this blogpost perfectly.
