The 'Lily Of Da Valley' joins with California Reggae band The Green for a January - March 2018 tour.
Jah9’s epic 2017 hit “Hardcore” remix featuring Chronixx now has a visual to accompany the raw, powerful tune. The original version featured on her September 2016 album “9” was remixed by reggae marvel Chronixx in March 2017 and later featured on VP Records annual compilation “Reggae Gold 2k17”. Released today, the video comes shortly after Jah9’s mini Brazil tour which wrapped up on January 7th. Prior to that, she completed a brief Northeast American tour with stops in Boston, New York and Vermont.
Filmed in São Paulo, Brazil by director Premier King, the video features Jah9 in various parts of the city with an all-female crew. Additional footage was shot in California by All Eyes On It. Reggae marvel Chronixx, who is currently nominated for a Grammy for Best Reggae album joins Jah9 in the primary scene atop a city rooftop. The video features a combination of soft, vibrant nature backdrops integrated with the gritty elements of the streets, emphasizing the melodic yet brazen energy of the song.
“It was a long awaited pleasure for me to make my first visit to South America and Brazil,” said Jah9. This has been calling to me for some time now and I was honored to connect with so many beautiful spirits and have the opportunity to work with some of the best local talent.” On meeting the director, Jah9 states, “we were fans of his work before we met him so when Premier King reached out about collaborating in Brazil it was just a matter of what song to choose. We are very happy with product of this collaboration and with all the seeds we were able to plant in Brazil.

VPAL Music is proud to present the NEW face of Techniques Records, Jambian Music.
There are a few things in life that are certain...the future, growth and change. Techniques Records was the brain child of the late Winston Riley. Though he was the face of the label, behind-the-scenes his sons Kurt "DJ Kurt Riley" & Andre "DJ Dre Stylez" Riley were adding their own flavor. The pair reached international success with Charly Black's Gyal You A Party Animal (Jambe-An Riddim 2014).
"All I can say is Beres Beres Beres" states, Kurt . after a spirit-filled recording session. He explains that the experience was life changing as Beres Hammond recorded not one but two songs and encouraged them to cut their own path in the industry. "He is the real M.A.N. and there's NO argument in that!", laughed Kurt.
Buckle up as they take you into the next generation of music. Great tunes, great production with more Reggae and Dancehall fusions for the next generation of music heads. Like their father, they plan to cement their names in music history. -words courtesy VP Records

MISTA SAVONA presents:
HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON
VP Records/ 17 North Parade
Just a brief span of balmy Caribbean Sea separates the island nations of Cuba and Jamaica. Yet, despite their proximity, each country boasts its own distinctive and uniquely wonderful musical traditions: traditions of incomparable potency and celebratory verve that have evolved, over more than a century, almost completely independent of each other. Until now.
In a world-first undertaking, Jake "Mista" Savona journeyed to Havana in 2015 with a handpicked band of Jamaican musicians and established collaborators in tow - including Sly & Robbie (Peter Tosh, NoDoubt, Grace Jones), hand-drummer and percussionist Bongo Herman (Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, The Abyssinians), and Winston 'Bopee' Bowen (Roots Radics, Inna De Yard) - to record the pioneering musical event 'Havana MeetsKingston' alongside some of the best and brightest names in Cuban and world music.
