Chronixx - "Likes" big in JA

Postby capullo » Wed Mar 28, 2018 2:14 pm

just back from four months traveling jamaica. the tune "likes" by chronixx was one of the most played tune on the radio and in the streets i heard. lots of buju banton "til shiloh" too. the whole island seems to be waiting for buju.

Yes, Likes is a deep tune. Very relevant and topical.

yes RG, good lyrics but also very interesting from a musical/production aspect. maybe not so much for reggae roots people though. the rhythm patterns are very special - reminds me somehow of jay dilla's productions - and there are many little details and sounds coming up and disappearing again. sounds very organic too although not a first listen. big tune!

Haven't heard this tune from Chronixx before - not sure if you are being facetious RG but seems well done to me. I like the shout outs at the end and the lyrics put a nice twist on today's social media, "likes" driven mores: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wq_K61Mh1A

No, Likes came up on my Deezer and it speaks of the superficial and self obsessed nature of social media. Clever lyrics, very relevant tune.
