Rhythm of life according to Keida

KEIDA - EBB AND FLOW E.P. - GREAT WHYTE ENTJamaican singer Keida is an emerging talent on the international reggae scene. And just as several other notable Jamaican performing artists Keida started to get enrolled in music while at the Edna Manley School of Visual and Performing Arts.

She dropped her debut single Jamaican Boy in 2009 and has since dropped a number of singles. But her brand new EP Ebb & Flow is her first more full-body of work.

On this seven track set – including a dub version – she enrolls five different producers – Rory Stonelove, UIM Records, Natural High Mystic, Suns of Dub and Royal Order Music. The set includes three previously released singles, including hit songs Ganja Tea and Stand for Something.

Ebb & Flow is a tasty mix of cultural roots and blazing, yet thoughtful, dancehall. Keida is a talented lyricist with a conscious approach. She invites people to use ganja in a positive and meditative way and strives for social change and global love.

This fresh set shows a mature singer comfortable with both up-tempo and hard-edged dancehall as well slower roots. Keida sends an uplifting message encouraging people to change in a positive way.

War is in the dance!

One of last year’s best tunes was Keida’s excellent Stand For Something. Now – finally – comes a one riddim compilation with nine cuts of the heavyweight riddim. And it’s voiced by a great bunch of vocalists from Jamaica, Europe and the U.S.. How about Pressure, Bobby Hustle, Exco Levi, Khari Kill, Gappy Ranks, Rob Symeonn, Rocker-T, Addis Pablo & The Suns of Dub and of course Keida.

War is in the Dance riddim is produced by U.S.based Royal Order Music and drops on October 21. Until then you can check the megamix by Selecta Daniel below.
