‘Urban Vibes’ rhythm explor... | Hapilos
Urban Team Records has released the 'Urban Vibes' rhythm which features a mixture of well-known acts and up-and-coming artistes.
Noted performers like IWaata, Intence, ZJ Liquid, Kalado, and Vanessa Bling feature alongside emerging artists like Tatik, Gabeana, Keplah, and Mcarie. The project, which was released in early August, has been making its rounds on several underground and mainstream radio stations in Jamaica, Guyana, the US, and Canada. The rhythm has singles focused on money, partying, sex and relationships.
Songs like Just Party by Vanessa Bling, Henny On the Rock by Keplah, and Walk Out by Intence are more geared for dancing. Intence's single can also be branded a 'ladies anthem' as it caters to them, as does Kalado's Sen It Een which does so in a more explicit manner.
Tatik's Side Ni**a is a fan favourite, while female recording dancehall artiste Gabeana exudes confidence in 'Pretty Browning', which samples a section of Buju Banton's Browning. Mcarie and ZJ Liquid took a more relatable approach to the rhythm. ZJ Liquid's Copy and Paste address the naysayers and speak to his successes, while Mcarie's Breathe Easy acts as a motivational song, advising listeners to " breathe easy, it's gonna be okay".
