I just saw JayBlem has a track called Anxiety Disorder. It's mush-piano but I thought it should be noted on Dissensus for posterity

I like the LaaLee/Cristale song but it is definitely global-pop. Telling that Cristale is so much more striking than LaaLee on it (though he's a pretty limited talent so maybe it's not that telling)

I know I've already posted this twice now but I've got to say how much I love watching Squash N crew busting out the moves in the supermarket shopping for ice with big cup in hand.


Anyone gonna tell me mek e place nice isn't hands down riddim of the year? So danceable, avoids any dreariness but still moody as fuck. The absolute best side of trap dancehall iyam

And I Love Racketeer, Cyaa bruk back, Ready, Ambala, The Block and now Lattry so much. Most important Jamaican artist of the last few years? I think so, even more than skillibeng.

Funny how skillibeng says in that Westwood interview how he's consciously slowing down his flow to be understandable and have mass appeal, then he goes and does this

Looks like he smashed on it on his UK tour anyway. Check out the crowd reactions on these


would love to see him, that looks class, looks like the people there are properly loving it, gutted that i'm going to be away when he plays in nyc. but fuck me that phone usage is more intense than i've ever seen. we are truly living in the future.

to quote a very dated backpack rap album from 2002, there is no future, the future is now

Another one from Daan Chorus, (St Lucia) this time with Medz Boss (Trinidad) on a Middle Eastern tip


Makes a nice change from the usual bleak, dreary piano and guitar driven Trinidad sound.

Just speculation on my part, but seems like there's a new round of interaction between the Trinibad scene and JA, Medz Boss is back after a long absence and West Bank Records is doing stuff with Skillibeng. I like this new one, measured, floating, graceful almost. Hardcore ambient if you will.


Another skilli/west bank production from a while back. I love skillibeng in this mode

A lot of mediocre stuff recently but these two riddims are nice.

Rampage riddim

Unmask riddim

Sure this is old as the hills news here but I like this a lot, although there's nothing distinctive about it at all really. Generic as fuck. But I like the way their different voices play off against each other.

This tune has blown up massively, 23 million views on YouTube! Must easily be the biggest tune of the year in dancehall.

That Rampage sounds la little '00s throwback, no? Maybe just the strings and not a bad thing, but interesting to note. I like it: the current scene could use an injection of drama.

Not exactly dramatic, but I really like Countree Hype's characteristically fleet production on Intence's "Raid"; the trap sound distilled down to little smears of sped-up hi-hats, while the rest of the drums are sprightly instead of heavy

Rampage does sound a bit 00s retro now you say it yeah. There was a good Skillibeng version of it too but it seems to have disappeared off YouTube now and doesn't seem to be on the official release so dunno what happened there.

Teejay soars on unmasked riddim I reckon - he puts out so much slushy rubbish but when he's got the right riddim he's one of my favourite singers of the last few years.

Raid's cool, hadn't heard it. Countree hype productions are always so classy, every little detail done just right.
