Rihanna’s latest single ‘Work’ featuring Drake is one of the hottest topics in entertainment circles in Jamaica at the moment, because the song is based on the the ‘Sail Away’ riddim from 1998, produced by Richie Stephens for his Pot Of Gold label. 

Richie has decided to remix two of the most popular songs on the riddim. Sean Paul’s ‘Fit And Legit’ has been complimented with a hook by Ikaya, one of the most talented young female vocalists from Jamaica and no other than Agent Sasco has lend his deejay vocals to Richie Stephens’ ‘Take Me Away’.

“Prova Cu Te Movi” il nuovo singolo di Rankin Lele & Papa Leu (Adriatic Sound)

Prova Cu Te Movi

Il nuovo singolo di Rankin Lele & Papa Leu 

2016 | Adriatic Sound – Believe Digital

http://player.believe.fr/v2/8055323980326

ADRIATIC GRAF NEW22m new2 finito low

 

“Prova cu te movi” è il nuovo singolo del team Adriatic Sound. Rankin Lele e Papa Leu non vogliono smettere di far ballare il pubblico a colpi di raggamuffin in lingua salentina. La musica infatti è la migliore terapia per la psiche e per il corpo umano specialmente quando viene assorbita attraverso la danza. Da qui Prova cu te movi: un invito esteso a tutti a ballare, a cercare le giuste movenze fino a farsi travolgere dal ritmo. Fino ad entrare in quello stato di trance in cui il corpo si muove da solo e non si riesce più a governare né a fermare. Come succedeva anticamente col fenomeno della Taranta.

La funzione curativa della musica viene riproposta in chiave moderna, richiamando però la tradizione“danzereccia” del territorio. D’altronde fare e seguire la musica è la ragione di vita dei due artisti da poco tornati dal loro viaggio in Giamaica al fine di evolvere la propria arte e il proprio sound fondendosi col famoso cantante giamaicano Richie Stephens nella SkaNation Band.

In questo brano molto fresh e in perfetto stile Adriatic Sound si comprende quanto “la musica è lu mezzu che ogne giurnu ne accumpagna”. Viene descritta in note la situazione della dancehall di cui gli Adriatic Sound sono esperti, avendo animato infinite nottate salentine con la propria selezione e avendo contribuito enormemente alla diffusione del genere che oggi diviene uno stile consolidato in Salento. Ogni ragazza amante di queste sonorità seguendo il proprio selecta può impazzire, quasi come le invasate di un tempo. Ed attraverso i passi di ballo può esprimere la propria personalità e le proprie emozioni. Ma le vibrazioni positive scaturite da questa musica non sono riservate esclusivamente alle donne:  anche gli uomini, li piccinni e li vecchi di novant’anni possono seguirle. È un linguaggio universale per tutte le età. Perché, come concludono Rankin Lele e Papa Leu in questa canzone tutta da ballare, citando il titolo di un bellissimo libro sul Sud dello scrittore De Martino, “Ntra la Terra de Lu rimorsu, lu ritmu è la medicina e nui lu prontu soccorsu”.

Richie Stephens Fuses With Italian Ban

Richie Stephens Fuses With Italian Band

Richie Stephens (front) the Ska Nation Band.

Singer Richie Stephens has announced his collaboration with a nine-man ska ensemble. Together, they are known as Richie Stephens & the Ska Nation Band.

Stephens told The Gleaner the band comprises bass, guitar, keyboard, trumpet, saxophone and trombone players, two backing vocalists and a DJ. All the members were born and currently live in Salento, southern Italy.

“I met the band at a festival in Italy last year after a performance. We both did ska in our set on stage and did very well. That’s how the idea came about,” he said. “They are all trained and seasoned musicians with lots of experience. They play different styles of music, including reggae and ska.”

Declaring his love for ska and the energy of the Jamaican genre of music, Stephens said he always wanted to perform the genre on a very serious level. “I have always loved ska music. So now that I have a ska band, we are ready to take on the world with this fresh music,” he declared.

Stephens said he has been receiving many positive responses since the formation of the unit. The plan is to present ska music in a very creative, fresh and Jamaican way to ska lovers globally.

“Hopefully, we will get new fans to join in the ska nation as we tour the four corners of the world. I will be delivering a very high-energy style of performance live on stage, along with a fantastic musical backing,” Stephens said.

Although he is forging ahead with this new venture, Stephens said he will still be performing as a solo act and that Richie Stephens and the Ska Nation is a separate entity. “My fans will still get to enjoy the soulful side of Richie Stephens that they know and love,” he assured.

 

ALBUM IN THE WORKS

Presently, Stephens and the band are in studio recording an album which will be released in early 2016. There are also new videos in production to complement tracks from the album. Stephens has high expectations of the project.

“Papa Leu is an excellent producer with lots of great songs out, in and around Europe. Rankin  Lele is a DJ and the band leader. He helps to organise business and other things. Morello is the man who makes all the calls and handles social media and more,” he said of some of the team members.

During this week, the entire band will arrive in Jamaica for a two-week stay.

“We will be working extremely hard to accomplish a lot of things, including shooting two videos, recordings songs, doing a photo shoot, plus doing interviews, among other things,” Stephens said.
