Genre: dancehall/hip hop
Label: Street Dream Records (Cashbook Clique) and Murderus Soundz (Young Dread)
Jamaica’s Cashbook Clique, who first joined Froglix’s global broadcast a few weeks ago with a track entitled “Galis Caliba”, is back with another new song. “Rise”, now in rotation, swings a little more to the Hip Hop side of their musical influences while staying true to their Dancehall roots. This new track is just as engaging as their previous work and is sure to be enjoyed by the Froglix faithful.
What do Gladys Knight, The B-52’s and Sugarland have in common with our newest addition to the broadcast Young Dread? Well, it’s definitely not the same genre of music that’s for certain. However, they all, as well as a myriad of other well known musicians, athletes and entertainers, call Atlanta, GA home. The list of famous musicians that hail from this southern metropolis is a storied one indeed. However, we really haven’t heard much in the way of Dancehall coming out of the ATL, which is rather sad as The Big Peach could really use it! After listening to the tracks from Young Dread, we came to the conclusion that he is just the one to bring it. This talented artist delivers pulsating rhythms complimented by lyrics that are on time and on point. We are thrilled to be featuring selections from Same Color As the President and look forward to hearing much more. In addition to the broadcast, you can also check out Young Dread in the October episode of the OuterSound Indie Music Podcast. Prepare to get your groove on people!
