    Italian production and soundsystem unit Tiberias Towa and Scottish singer Tom Spirals showcase their strong international link in their new EP Flex Like Water, released on 21.09.19 through Pure Niceness Records, based in Lyon, France, have been pushing new school digital and dub music featuring worldwide singers and riddim makers since 2014. 



    Producer Kilimanzion of Tiberias Towa has crafted unmissable deep dub riddims, layered with bouncy digital skanks and heightened by the conscious lyrics of singer and MC Tom Spirals for the highly-anticipated 10-track release. The pair originally met in 2016 at the Italian festival Mandrea. They came together remotely to create a dubplate, Reap What I Sow (which now features as the first track on the EP) and in 2017 Kilimanzion travelled to Tom’s home of Glasgow in Scotland to perform together at the legendary local reggae dance, Walk n Skank. During that visit, the EP came into creation and following two years of tweaking and perfecting, is now ready to set fire to sound systems cross the globe, gaining support and spins already from sounds such as King Shiloh, Mungo’s Hi Fi and Sinai Sound.




    "The visual identity of the project has been developed by french graphic legend Laska and is enhanced with a full-length music video for title track Flex Like Water; premiered on Reggaeville, filmed by Re.Compose at the internationally renowned dance Teachings in Dub, and featuring Mungo’s Hi Fi (Scotland) and Legal Shot Sound (France) where Tom Spirals performed in April 2019.  



    The full EP, includes four original songs; a weighty dub version of each song; and heavy remix from Bukkha of title track Flex Like Water (only available as bonus track on PureNiceness Records' Bandcamp with full album purchase) , calling on the dark steppers sound he has mastered so well to ensure you screw your bass face even tighter than you thought possible.

    Singer and songwriter Var (former lead singer of Pentateuch) releases his first official single “Jah Love” across all digital platforms on May 3, on the Supow label and his own Hillsman Records. The acoustic song features Var, accompanied by Shaquir McQueen on guitar, singing a beautiful psalm of praise about the infinite love of the Almighty. No matter one’s faith or creed, there are some things we all believe and feel, like the inspiring and overwhelming sense of awe and gratitude, of which Var sings. “His love gives me joy, makes me high like a ganja,” he croons in the song’s opening lines. “Your love is perpetual, your love is so special, your love is forever, Jah,” Var continues in the song, which feels authentic, free-flowing and organic. The young singer also finds inspiration in Psalm 23, which he paraphrases quite appropriately in his verse. Caught in the emotion, he sings out after the second verse until the song nears its end.



    Var says he is happy “Jah Love” is finally being released and it is being done under his label. “People know me from my work with Pentateuch Movement or Inna De Yard, but this is now me as a solo artiste, with my own production and label involved,” says Var. “Hillsman Records is me and my cousin, Shaquir, who plays the guitar on Jah Love.” The single was recorded at Small World Studio and co-produced and mixed by Supow, a label operated by singer and producer Patrice Bart-Williams, a Sierra Leonean-German singer-songwriter and music producer. “We have a very good partnership over the years; and we give thanks for the support,” says Var.




    When he is not pursuing his solo endeavours, Var is a touring guest with Reggae collective Inna De Yard, with whom he has performed at numerous festivals across Europe and the United States. Also, a songwriter, Var has co-written songs for Raging Fyah, Kabaka Pyramid, Richie Spice and Duane Stephenson. Var and Hillsman Records have much more in store and may be followed on Instagram @Var_Hillsman and Facebook @VarHillsman.

    This time we are presenting a rising stare of dancehall music, Jamaican singer Fyah Wariyah: the Congo rebel, who came to the front last March with his first singgle 'Congo Bongo'.

    Dwayne Jerome Thomas, better known as Fyah Wariyah, is a young man born on the 27th of June 1988 who spent his childhood running on the streets of rural Jamaica. He was raised together with his brothers and sisters by his grandparents. The interest he has in music developed very early, starting to practice his deeyaing skills in primary school. He said in an interview that Sizzla Kalonji was the one who influcenced him the most, with his very charachteristic rythems. To those Fyah added his own style of melodic singing. He wrote his first song 'Get to know you' while going to Claude Mckay's high school, which is where he realised music is what makes him happy and is the sole purpose of his life.


    Fyah moved to Kingston in 2009 and listening to all the artist who 'be doin dem ting' he took his music even more seriously. In one oh the interviews he expresses the hope that his fresh look and unique lyrics, backed up with dancehall beats will secure him a place in the music industry. After a very well recieved concert that was part of the event 'trip to Mexico' he realised that cooperation with the public is what gives him energy and will bring him even further in the music industry. Since he is still a fresh face on the scene he asked for the help of Promo king, an artist working under Skeng Legacy Records. With his work and by securing Fyah a regular spot on the radio stations, the artist is now on a good path to take the next steps in his music career.


    The music and lyrics of his songs have positive thoughts as their most important theme. He makes it more than clear that he is not a part of the 'badman culture' and that his music is strictly of a modern roots kind. With the messages of his songs he addresess the youths, encouraging them to be positive, motivated, and treat women with love and respect that they deserve. His first single was followed by 'Who Jah Love', 'Don't you give away my love', and 'Politician', while this year he already released two new dancehall hits 'Champion' and 'Tradition'. Definetly one to keep in mind.

    With the summer solstice having just passed, the longest days of the year are ideal for squeezing in a few more reggae tunes. Compiling choice selections by discerning radio hosts from around the globe, here’s the latest issue of Global Reggae Charts magazine!

    Jahcoustix, by virtue of his album Reunion, appears on the cover. The eighth album from the German artist – known for blending reggae with acoustic music – currently holds the third spot on the charts.

    Otherwise, Koffee’s Rapture EP maintains its grip on the top spot, while #2 is a nice debut by Inna De Yard. Sly and Robbie are at #4, for The Final Battle with Roots Radics, with Beres Hammond wrapping up the initial five albums. Jah9’s Feelings continues to shine at #7, just ahead of the veteran Lt Stitchie’s Masterclass. Previous cover artist King Mas rebounds a bit to #11, and two spots behind there’s Shy FX with a pleasant surprise: Raggamuffin SoundTape. Noteworthy for sure: Alborosie’s Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United has nearly done the distance, still hanging on at #18 after eleven months! Finally, there are debuts from Sizzla and Akae Beka tying for twentieth – it will be interesting to see how far those rise in the coming months.

    Practically expected, Koffee is atop the single charts as well for “Toast,” while “Throne” is third. In between is “Guess Who” – Tarrus Riley; Randy Valentine’s collab with Eesah and Runkus, “Blessed,” enters at #4, followed by Jah9 for “Heaven (Ready Fi Di Feeling).” Further down, there’s Hempress Sativa at #7, and then Alborosie & Chronixx with “Contradiction” at #8, celebrating a full year on the charts. Much of the remaining tunes are fresh work from established artists, including the latest from Protoje, Skip Marley, Jah Cure, Buju Banton, and Jesse Royal, as well as legends Keith and Tex with their latest “Global Politics.”

    Plenty of changes on the riddim side, with nothing remaining from last month’s charts. New riddims are the General A General Riddim (Frankie) sits at #1, the Lioness Order Riddim (Oneness) is at #2, and the Tenement Yard 2019 Riddim (Crossfire Sound) appears at #5. The Sweep It Out Riddim (149) and the Lion Pride Riddim: Reloaded (Upsetta) both return to the charts, at #3 and #4 respectively.

    The charts are online and can be found at www.globalreggaecharts.com.
