KIRKLE DOVE - STREETWISE/DUBWISE
TEFLON - MOTHERLESS CHILD
NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE
kirk single (March 3, 2009 - Miami, Florida) Zojak World Wide is pleased to announce the release of Streetwise/Dubwise, Jamaican producer Kirkle Dove's innovative dub album, is now available on I-Tunes. The first single, "Give It To Me" featuring Ce'Cile and Courtney John is a lively dub blend of dancehall, reggae, soca and rock music. "Give It To Me" is a tune that crosses definitions of genre and places the producer, Kirkle Dove, within the category of artist, much like King Tubby, Scientist and others have done with roots reggae. Kirkle Dove is the first to experiment in this way with modern dancehall beats. Released March 3, 2009, Streetwise/ Dubwise provides a fresh approach to experience reggae music.
In addition to the Courtney John and Ce'Cile single, Streetwise /Dubwise brings together Anthony B, Toots Hibbert (of Toots & The Maytals), Mr. Vegas, sax maestro Dean Fraser, dancehall artist Determine and others in a unique blend of crucial groovy reggae vibes on the album itself. This time however, Bennett steps out of the traditional producer role and takes the music to places it hasn't been seen in years. Combining the essence of Kingston, Jamaica's street culture and the dub/remix genre, Streetwise/Dubwise presents a clever and thoughtful take on current reggae and dancehall music.
On "Peanut Man" Toots Hibbert and Kirkle Dove create a refreshing international sound by fusing vintage vibes with modern production. The track "River Bed", featuring Aisha Davis, is Bennett's dub reprise of his smash Dutchpot Riddim, the same riddim that launched Mr Vegas hit "Tek Weh Yuhself" in 2008, and is sure to take over the dancefloor again. Not to be left out, Mr. Vegas returns with "Daggering", a playful, mento induced track to make even the stiffest of hips move to the beat. In short, Streetwise/Dubwise will have something for reggae fans looking for a new sound, dub fans waiting for the next Jamaican dub producer to make a mark and dance goers hunting for original beats to move along to. The movement begins today.
TEFLON - MOTHERLESS CHILD - NOW AVAILABLE!
(March 4, 2009 - Miami, Florida) Zojak World Wide and Tads Records International are pleased to announce the release of the debut album from dancehall reggae artist Teflon. Entitled Motherless Child, Teflon mixes reggae, dancehall and consciousness. The release showcases his innate talent to entertain and deliver a powerful message on life, which was inspired and influenced by growing up without his mother. The album reflects Teflon's versatile approach to the music in cooperation with the hottest producers reggae can offer. Not wasting any effort, Teflon vibes with Kemar 'Flavor' McGregor, JAM 2, Skata Burrell as well as Tads to ensure his first album is critically respected. Motherless Child includes standout tracks such as the breakthrough "Jah Jah Love", "Fire", "Yard A Love" and "A Day Like This" (featuring Chezidek). Motherless Child is available now on I-Tunes, e-tailers worldwide and via Tads Records International.
Taking his name from the acronym "Teach Each Forever Love Over the Nation", Teflon's motivation is to make music that is more than a happy beat. On Motherless Child Teflon combines intelligent lyrics, a catchy flow and wicked riddims for a strong debut effort. "Jah Jah Love", which made Teflon a household name in 2004, established the artist's reputation as a conscious singer with edgy overtones that are difficult to ignore. Recorded on a dubby riddim track, "When Will The People" is a conscious reminder that the people 'must stop selling their soul and letting the devil take control'. "Up A Yard A Love" takes a more upbeat approach to life and the music with the singjay's energy on full display. And "No Lies" puts Teflon in the position of singing sweet words of love to his woman in an emotive and minimal roots style.
Hailing from the parish of St. Mary, Teflon's distance from Kingtson shows with an innovative and creative approach that combines a fresh deejay technique with roots sensibilities. Based on a groovy one drop riddim, Teflon takes no prisoners on the driving "Come Mek We Burn Them Down". The track "Slave Master" borrows from Hip Hop beats for an even more international feel and "Jailhouse Rock" makes a definitive statement about Teflon's commitment to battle forces of oppression and set an example for the youths. Song for song, on 22 tracks, Teflon's debut album is a tribute to his determination and makes a strong commitment to the roots of the music. While inspired by the past, Teflon's Motherless Child is focused on the future and we invite you to join him.
