Les posts dancehall ne sont pas légion ici comme dans la blogosphère alors profitez en pour déguster ces galettes qui font un malheur de Kingston à Notting Hill.
Tony Matterhorn est un peu au ragga ce que Kanye West est au rap, après des dizaines de productions efficaces il effectue un passage réussi derrière le micro avec un titre aussi offensif que festif.
Le Wipe out riddim avec ses irrésistibles guitares surf a servi de base à la plupart des toasters en vogue mais c'est un vétéran du genre, Buju banton, qui en donne la meilleure version.
Les filles ne sont pas en reste avec un duo entre Ce'cile et l'Américaine Trina, plus connue pour son passif r'n'b, jouant à frotti frotta sur le bien nommé "Hot like that".
Pour apaiser les corps et les esprits rien ne vaut une ballade signée Tanya Stephens (photo), qui revient bientôt avec un "Rebelution" chargé de bonne vibes.

Tony Matterhorn "Dutty wine"

Buju Banton "Me and oonu"

Ce'Cile feat. Trina "Hot like that"

Tanya Stephens "These streets"

Let's have a listen to some fresh dancehall anthems, set to be huge from Kingston to Notting Hill if it isn't already actual.
Successful producer Tony Matterhorn releases a great second single while that old Buju Banton manages to ride that insane suf guitar riddim called "wipe out".
Girls also do well with a sexy joint from Ce'cile featuring the famous r'n'b singer Trina, while Tanya Stephens (pictured) sings softly a sweet ballad, lead single from the forthcoming "Rebelution".

Buju Banton & Beenie Man concerts axed

Singers continue to urge the killing of gays, so the truce is over

London – 7 July 2006

Concerts by reggae stars Buju Banton and Beenie Man have been
cancelled in Brighton and Bournemouth following successful lobbying of council leaders and police by local gay community organisations, with the support of gay human rights group OutRage!

Banton had been due to perform in Brighton at the Concorde 2 venue on 5 July, and Beenie was scheduled to sing at Bournemouth International Centre on 29 July.

The cancellation follows both singers’ repeated advocacy of the murder of lesbians and gay men.

"We applaud the decision of the police and council to oppose the
performance of a singer who advocates the murder of gays and lesbians.Incitement to murder is a criminal offence. Free speech does not include the right to encourage the killing of other human beings," said Peter Tatchell of OutRage!

"Inciting the murder of gays is no different to inciting the murder of Black or Jewish people. All incitements to murder are criminal
offences and should be prosecuted," he added.

OutRage! lobbied the police and council to use their powers (under
Section 161 of the Licensing Act 2003), which permit the police to
close a licensed premises on the grounds of a possible risk to public safety and public order.

"It could be reasonably argued that the presence of a large number of homophobic fans of an avowedly homophobic singer would threaten the safety and security of the town’s gay citizens as the fans leave the venue - a risk that would have been compounded by the presence of gay bars not far from the vicinity of the concert," said Mr Tatchell.

Section 161 was used by Manchester police to halt a “murder music”
concert last year.

"We had an agreement. Buju Banton, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have
broken that agreement. As far as they are concerned, the truce is
over. The campaign against them has resumed. We will maintain the
truce with the other singers who have stuck by the agreement,” said Mr Tatchell.

"Buju's records inciting homophobic murder are still on sale and Buju is still profiting from his murder music," added Tatchell.

"We are told by human rights colleagues in Jamaica that that he has publicly performed Boom Bye Bye in the last year.

"This song incites the murder of gay men. It urges people to shoot
gays in the head, pour acid over them and burn them alive.

“In April this year, on BBC Radio 1Xtra!, Banton defended Boom Bye Bye and his violent homophobic hatred, claiming he was entitled to his murderous opinions.

"Banton has never apologised for Boom Bye Bye. His record company did apologise many, many years ago (in the early 1990s) but Banton then repudiated the apology and reiterated his homophobic incitements to murder.

"He has since regularly performed Boom Bye Bye. He has also
re-released Boom Bye Bye on compilation albums. These are not the actions of a man who shows regret or remorse.

"Buju Banton narrowly escaped conviction earlier this year for a
violent assault on gay men in their home in Kingston, Jamaica. These gay men are adamant that Banton was one of gang who homophobically abused and beat them.

"Banton is an unrepentant homophobe who has incited the killing of gay people. Inciting murder is a criminal offence in every country.

"Even if Banton agrees not to perform Boom Bye Bye, this is
unacceptable. To give him a concert platform would be the equivalent of hosting a neo-Nazi singer on the condition that he promised not to sing about gassing Jews.

"Since I am sure no venue would host a singer who called for the
lynching of black people, we expect the authorities to take a similar tough stance against singers who call for the shooting and burning of gay people.

"We want zero tolerance towards incitements to murder gays and
lesbians,” said Mr Tatchell.

"As well as Buju Banton, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have also
violated the agreement to end lyrics and statements inciting the
murder of gays and lesbians.

"The 'Last Hurrah' carnival concert in Jamaica, on 3 April 2005, was
sponsored by Supreme Ventures, Red Stripe beer and others.

"It is alleged by various people who were at the concert, and others
who watched it on TV, that both Beenie Man and Bounty Killer sang
songs, and / or made statements from the stage, which either
encouraged the murder of lesbians and gays, or reaffirmed their
previous encouragements to kill queers,” said Mr Tatchell.

It is reported that Beenie Man came on stage and sang a song he wrote
about not apologising for his lyrics that encourage the killing of gay
people.

He said words like:

"Me not apologising to no funnyman (gay man)".

This song and statement amounts to a reaffirmation of his previous
lyrics advocating the murder of lesbians and gay men.

Bounty Killer followed in a similar vein, saying:

"Man that come here to look pon man fi dead" (a man who comes here to
look on another man must die)

In the context, this was an incitement to kill gay men.

Other comments from the artists variously included:

"Fire fi the man dem that looking man" (burn gay men)

"Gunshot for a funnyman" (shoot gay men)

"Both Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have, in the view of the Jamaican
gay rights group J-Flag, broken the letter and the spirit of the
agreement we reached to suspend the Stop Murder Music campaign.

"The promoters of the Last Hurrah concert, including Red Stripe, have
taken a similar view. They announced the withdrawal of all sponsorship
from Beenie Man and Bounty Killer - and from events with which they
are involved," said Mr Tatchell.
