Princess Riddim

Love in all aspects – Real People Music presents the Princess Riddim

Our production house Real People Music is happy to present to you a fresh, modern Reggae juggling forspring with an international cast of artists, that look at love from different perspectives.

Californian Jah Sun opens the selection with his deeply emotional and even autobiographic “Love Again”, before Kenyan vocalist extraordinaire Treesha presents her reckoning with a former friend, that she will “Never Be Cool” with because of betrayal. Those are just two opposite stories presented on the Princess Riddim, and Vyzadon from
Trenchtown, Kingston tells of yet another. His single “Not Right Now” portrays a relationship on the verge of breaking-up, destroyed by distrust and quarrelsomeness. Jamaican rising talent Jerone takes things a little lighter and cheers up the listeners with his easy
flirting “Give Me A Minute” , while his sister Deondra promotes self-love and confidence with “I’ll Make It”. Million Stylez from Sweden eventually takes love to another level as he highlights his relationship to Jah and how His love changes lives in “How Would It Be”.

Musically composer and producer Alex “Drummie” Domhoever teamed up with extraordinary talents from Jamaica and Germany such as Aeion Hoillett on bass, Lamont Savory and Florian Münzer on guitar, and Frank Pollack on keys and organ to create this fresh, uptempo instrumental. Also, Franklyn “Bubbler” Waul, prolific member of Black Uhuru, joined the project to contribute his skills on the piano. Together they manufactured a rich, melodious, multi-layered Reggae riddim with Pop elements and an uplifting vibe. The juggling is now available on all digital platforms through Oneness Records.

Marching Riddim

Marching Riddim

After the Buff Baff Riddim Real People Music is happy to present to you another juggling entitled Marching. The militant Roots Reggae sound of the instrumental composed by Alex Drummie, and recorded with renowned musicians such as Errol “Flabba” Holt and Florian Münzer and Frank Pollack of Gentleman’s Evolution band, is dedicated to February being both Black History and Reggae Month. Besides the music driven by a heavy bassline and highlighted by the powerful staccato of the three-piece horn section of the Magic Touch band, also the lyrics of the six singles from artists like Anthony B., Cornadoor and Swiss-Congolese vocalist extraordinaire Irina Mossi focus on black consciousness and history, self-awareness, or Reggae music respectively. For three singles I conceptualized, filmed and edited the official visuals that you can enjoy now on YouTube.

Celebrating Black History Month with new music video

February is Reggae and Black History Month throughout the world and also we at Real People Music created a piece to celebrate the latter. For the single The Search Is Over by Jerone and No-Maddz member Evie Pukupoo I conceptualized, filmed and edited the official music video that is out now on the Reggaeville YouTube channel. Both song and video want to create awareness of black identity, history and the origins of people of color by highlighting some of the greatest heroes such as Marcus Garvey, Rosa Parks and Walter Rodney. At the same time the music and visuals encourage the audience to search for the next hero inside themselves. Jerone and Evie seized the opportunity to combine the video shoot with a lecture for the young kids in the clip to teach them about their roots and Jamaican National heroes like Nanny of the Maroons or Paul Bogle.

Jerone Rising

Real People Music presents Jerone’s debut EP Rising

After three well-received singles we are happy to announce the release of Jerone’s first EP entitled Rising on December 4, 2020. Five tracks all produced by Alex Drummie for Real People Music range from rocksteady to classic one drop and modern roots reggae, and show the diversity and skills of young talent Jerone Riley. His lyrics about love, self-confidence and own identity, as well as friendship and trust are deep and touching stories everyone can relate to and were written by the gifted singer from the Waterhouse community in Kingston, Jamaica. Besides guest artist Evie from the No-Maddz, who is featured on the opening track The Search Is Over, the EP unites prolific and prestigious instrumentalists from Jamaica and Germany, and veteran musicians such as Errol “Flabba” Holt of Roots Radics and Franklyn “Bubbler” Waul of Black Uhuru. Until the final release, fans can already enjoy the previously released singles Brother’s Keeper, Give Me A Minute and Keep You Safe.

Buff Badd Riddim

Real People Music presents its first release the Buff Baff Riddim

As its first release the Real People Music label presents the Buff Baff Riddim, an original early Dancehall style juggling inspired by Gregory Isaacs’ albums Out Deh and Night Nurse. Recorded at studios like Tuff Gong and Alborosie’s Shengen Studio in Kingston and Berlin the instrumental, a creation by Alex “Drummie” Domhoever, is reminiscent of Roots Radics’ and the Taxi Gang’s sound characterized by analogue instruments and Simmons drums.

The riddim selection will be out on all digital platforms on May 31 while two singles are being released ahead of time: the combination of Duane Stephenson and Lutan Fyah entitled Empress Sativa successfully premiered with the first music video I produced on May 10, and Jerone’s track Brother’s Keeper will be out on May 24. One week earlier the video shot at St. Patrick’s Primary School in Kingston is presented as part of a campaign for Jamaica’s Child Month in May. The short film I conceptualized, filmed and edited myself highlights children that break the cycle of bullying in school and stand up to be a brother’s and sister’s keeper. To share and promote his positive message Jerone toured schools in Jamaica throughout May with the video and his Brother’s Keeper campaign.

Real People Music Label

Besides talking, reporting from and filming music, actually making it has always been a great desire of mine. Together with my partner Alex Drummie finally our very own label Real People Music is ready to give what we consider real music to real people. With him being the producer, composer and musician, and me doing the PR, marketing and media design work we are excited and eager to create Reggae, Dancehall, Rocksteady and Jamaican sounds, foster and push real talent, and highlight also the works of our fellow musicians and ‘Reggae makers’.
