YT Moment For Change Single Review

YT – Moment For Change – Single Review

YT: Moment For Change Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. UK-based artist YT is back with the second single from his forthcoming EP – in this case, the title track. And once again, all the signs are indicating that this new project will be fyah. YT Moment For Change, released via Oneness Records, sees YT again team up with master producers Oneness (co-responsible for the whole EP). This means the production and engineering are top-class. And the composition and arrangement themselves are also of high quality: boding well for the full EP, given this is the title track. The

Reggae Principles 2021 – Press Release

Reggae Principles 2021 Press Release by Mr Topple For Pauzeradio.com. It looks like the world is beginning to emerge out the other side of the coronavirus pandemic. Societies are tentatively opening up again. Hope is becoming clearer on the horizon. But this doesn’t mean that we should go back to the way things were before. Society is on a dangerous cliff edge.

Roots Reggae Warrior – Press Release

Roots Reggae Warrior Press Release by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. 2020 has been a turbulent and unsettling year: from the coronavirus pandemic to the entrenching of social divisions via economic crises.

But many of us have found the familial, personal and spiritual strength to persevere in the face of often extreme adversity. While the New Gregorian Year is often viewed as a rebirthing and renewing for us as

The story behind it is fascinating. Originally a raw riddim, after Tamrin sent it through to the artists he decided to
