Julian Marley Mother Nature Interview

Julian Marley Interview

EXCLUSIVE: Julian Marley Interview on his latest track, the ‘fight’ to get Reggae heard and living through the world’s current chaos. Julian Marley is back, not that he ever went anywhere. One of the busiest artists in the game has recently released a fresh track and video, which has a living legend on board and the world around us as its inspiration. But aside from that – how does he feel about the increased awareness of Reggae? The state of our species and the planet? And working with the incomparable “Uncle Reid”? Pauzeradio caught up with the inspirational Marley to

Tarrus Riley Healing Review

Tarrus Riley – Healing – Review

Tarrus Riley: Healing Album Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. It’s been a strange, unsettling year for many of us; odd in itself that a virus can alter the collective human experience across the world. Many of us are probably in need of some ‘healing’ right now. So, enter Tarrus Riley to answer our calls. Tarrus Riley Healing, released via JukeBoxx Productions and distributed by Zojak Worldwide, is an album wholly constructed during lockdown. Production comes from Shane C. Brown, Dean Fraser and Riley across all tracks bar one. And it’s perhaps a testament to the talents of these three

Protoje In Search Of Lost Time Review

Protoje – In Search Of Lost Time – Review

Protoje: In Search Of Lost Time Album Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. To finish of In.Digg’s 2020 trio of releases, Protoje has finally dropped his long-awaited follow-up album to A Matter of Time. And it was naturally worth every second of the wait. Protoje In Search Of Lost Time, released via In.Digg.Nation Collective, Six Course Music/RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment, sees the man himself team up with a glittering array of producers, artists, musicians and even fellow label-mates Lila Iké and Sevana across 10 tracks. To be clear from the off: the sound is impeccable. Stylistically complex and

Roadblock Dub Collective Sepinggungan Review

Roadblock Dub Collective – Sepinggungan – Review

Roadblock Dub Collective: Sepinggungan Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. Indonesia has thrown up some inspiring Roots-derived artists in recent years; not least among these being Ras Muhamad and another, fascinating act. Enter Roadblock Dub Collective, with their latest track and accompanying video. Roadblock Dub Collective Sepinggungan, a self-released track, sees Roadblock (Yulius Samiaji and Hidayat Surodijoyo) tread a Dub-led yet musically interesting path which touches on numerous influences to create a wholly unique sound. With vocals from activist and singer Terranova (from Sound System outfit Anjing Dub) it’s brooding, intricate and unsettling – cleverly crafted around several component

Cenza Thriving Review

Cenza – Thriving – Review

Cenza: Thriving Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. At Pauzeradio, we’re committed to thinking outside the Reggae box when it comes to artistic talent and supporting emerging acts. With that in mind, here’s introducing the latest track from New York-based Cenza. And it’s dynamite. Cenza Thriving, released via MGNancy Records, sees Cenza team up with Jean-Luc McMurty and Mike Abiuso across production duties, with the song being penned by herself. It’s atmospheric, brooding and unsettling – and draws on various genres to create a thoroughly modern yet classic sound. Because there’s something of the ‘Jhené Aiko meets James Bond

Hot Step Riddim Review

Hot Step Riddim – Review

Various Artists: Hot Step Riddim Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. If you were looking for something full of glistening ‘treasure’, look no further than Treasure Chest Production’s latest riddim. With a host of well-known names on board, it’s a hot move from this team – and one that’s executed impressively. Hot Step Riddim, released via Treasure Chest Productions and Zojak Worldwide, is an ingenious mashing up of genres and styles, drawing on elements of Roots, Dancehall and Reggaeton. The production from the team at Treasure Chest is of a high quality – with keen attention to detail across the

Prezident Brown Son Of A Gun Review

Prezident Brown – Son Of A Gun – Review

Prezident Brown: Son of a Gun Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. Ahead of its forthcoming EP The Message, CKM Infinity Studio has dropped the second track from the release. And if this new cut from Prezident Brown (and the first single from Trudii Harrison), are anything to go by, the full record should be an impressive piece of work. Prezident Brown Son of a Gun, released via CKM Infinity Studio, sees label founder Cliff Manswell at the production helm again. It follows the same compositional riddim as Harrison’s Black Voice. But what’s lovely to see is Brown’s completely

Lutan Fyah Never Give Up Review

Lutan Fyah – Never Give Up – Review

Lutan Fyah: Never Give Up Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. Lutan Fyah must be one of the busiest artists around, because he’s back with another fresh cut. But this time, he’s tackling a subject not often discussed in Roots: mental health and depression. Lutan Fyah Never Give Up, across the Reggae Star Riddim and released via Reggae Vibes Music, sees Fyah and the team at Reggae Vibes put together a highly impressive, utterly complete package – from the composition, to the lyrics and via the accompanying video from Lonewolf Filmz. The track itself is ostensibly Roots, with elements

Akae Beka ft Tiken Jah Fakoly Everything Bless Review

Akae Beka ft Tiken Jah Fakoly – Everything Bless – Review

Akae Beka ft Tiken Jah Fakoly: Everything Bless Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. There’s something inherently moving about hearing Vaughn Benjamin (Akae Beka) posthumously; remembering what an inspiring talent he was. And the latest release, thanks to Zion I Kings and I Grade Music, is no exception to this. Akae Beka ft Tiken Jah Fakoly Everything Bless, released via Schethlya Publishing, Sotigui Editions et Production, I Grade Music, Galactic Soul Music, Haile Tabernacle Music and Haze Street Publishing, is perfection personified. Delicately and intricately arranged, sympathetically produced by Zion I Kings and beautifully performed by Benjamin and Fakoly

Iba Mahr Fully Advanced Review

Iba Mahr – Fully Advanced – Review

Iba Mahr: Fully Advanced Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. Conscious artist Iba Mahr has returned with another new track – following quickly on from his July cut Smart and Brave. Those two words sum him up well – as this latest song is both in droves. Iba Mahr Fully Advanced, distributed by 21st Hapilos, sees Mahr team up with the talents at One Time Music and Island Wav (here, its co-founder RiddimBoss) – the team that brought us Kabaka Pyramid’s Babylon Fallin. The track treads a different path completely to Smart and Brave’s Roots and Dub-led flavours. Here,
