Uk-Based Reggae Artist from Jamaica, Ross I-Yota, Announces New EP, “Reggae Garden.

Reggae music personified; Jamaican-born, UK-based Ross I-Yota embodies boundless versatility and creativity, both as a performer and storyteller. Even though he prides himself on his consistently iconic reggae brand, he is in no way limited to this sound only; he has showcased an innate ability to present music in multiple ways, reshaping how we perceive music with his distinctive genre-fusion style. His tunes are driven by the core nostalgic reggae soundscape but fuse a host of other strands such as dancehall, roots, and Afro-Caribbean-influenced sounds that certainly appeal to a vast market. And he does not sing for the sake of singing; he produces conscious music with relatable, relevant, and impactful lyrics as he values the aspects of reggae music where lyrics, musical quality, and authenticity matter.

Ross I-Yota is now gearing towards the release of his new EP dubbed “Reggae Garden”- a 4-track body of work that has been inspired by love: love for one another, love for oneself, love for reggae music, and that butterfly-causing romantic love.

Through this conscious cosmic exploration, Ross I-Yota takes us on a musical journey that is informative, inspiring, and entertaining, a noteworthy accomplishment in an age where many artists produce differently. You can tell how invested he was in making this project as well as his selfless intentions that inspired it. Also, you can feel his love for the genre woven throughout each performance. This is the kind of music that the world needs now!

“Reggae Garden” was inspired by the golden age of reggae/roots and dub music; while listening to some of those classics back in time, Ross I-Yota was inspired to create something with a similar vibe, melding the genre’s legendary essence with his unique touch to produce this substantial body of work.

“Show Love” is a bona fide masterpiece and a call for universal love for one another. The underlying message here is that we are all one, and thus, there is no need for this hatred, racism, meaningless wars, and subjugation. This is a call for us to see everyone for who they are—humans—instead of seeing them for the color of their skin, race, religion, continent, or heritage. The blend of the quintessential reggae percussion, bass, drums, and guitars, along with the sweet-sounding lead and choir-like backing vocal harmonies ensures that the message gets home and remains cemented.

The catchy hook, “show a lot of love (a lot of love)

Spread a lot of love (a lot of love)

Give a lot of love (a lot of love)” is where the gist of this track’s deeply relevant message resides!

“Free Up” reminds me of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” because it is a call for us to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery and free up our minds because no one else but us can. Many have become susceptible to misinformation, propaganda, and outright lies from those serving in various capacities of power, and it is about that time that we take that power back and allow ourselves to think freely without being manipulated.

The beat in “Reggae Garden” is irresistibly catchy and lingers in the mind. It is hypnotic and special, and the harmonious blend of vocals by Ross I-Yota and guest artist Ellel Flo elevates the song to greater heights. The way they bounce off one another is ear-worming and enchanting as they lyrically and melodically assert their love for reggae music. This tune is simply an ode to that unconditional love for reggae and everything it represents.

The last tune, “Reservation” is a classic reggae ballad inspired by love. Ross I-Yota wants you to listen to this track and feel all the emotions of being in love. He wants listeners to relate to the song and understand the feeling of being head over heels for someone. Armed with a mesmerizing and magnetic singing style, he really captures the essence of love and going out on a date with that special someone who makes your heart skip a beat!

 In conclusion, There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be head over heels for this EP that was made with love and is all about that love!

Hip-Hop and Rap Star Big Hoop Takes Us through Intriguing Phases of a Relationship, Delivered from His Own Personal Lens with His Latest EP “More than Love.”

Hailing from Bakersfield, CA, Big Hoop is much more than just any other hip-hop artist or rapper; his relentless dedication to innovation, artistic excellence, emotional depth, authenticity, and breaking down genre barriers has earned him a standout reputation among his fans and peers. The future looks incredibly great for this first-class emcee who continues to defy genre constraints and boundaries, pushing limits and challenging the status quo with his unique arrangements. If you are looking for hip-hop music that is memorable and emotionally resonant, buckle up and enjoy this ride with Big Hoop as your captain!

Big Hoop returns with a six-track EP dubbed “More Than Love,” which follows his own love story of evolution and growth from his old self. Each track seamlessly transitions into the next, capturing the various stages of the relationship without losing the cohesiveness of the album as a whole.

Showcasing sharp lyrical claws over captivating beats, the first two jams, “Girls Stay Trippin” and “Ex Commute,” capture the initial stages of Big Hoop meeting a girl and wanting to know more about her to establish a connection. The depth of lyricism is magnificently supplemented by the crafty execution of the music. “Girls Stay Trippin” has an infectious tone thanks to the catchy hooks and memorable verses, and the second jam is guaranteed to leave a lasting imprint on the heart and soul of its listener purely for its haunting appeal. In both tracks, his panache on the mic remains undefeated.

That guitar intro in “Too Good” takes a listener to heaven and back in an instant, setting a mellow tone for the jam and healing the soul in equal measure. The ensuing hip-hop beat features an upbeat tempo, and on the mic, Big Hoop delivers expressively of wanting to take things to the next level, albeit with a cautious tone that leaves room for disappointment. This is more like him giving her assurance as she navigates the intricacies of getting over her ex-lover as well as her own insecurities. Big Hoop’s seamless flows capture the true power of hip-hop and rap music to tell a relatable story and engage the listener.

“Fairytales” also features a stunning guitar-flavored intro that sets the right tone for the jam. Here, Big Hoop ups the tempo and heat both melodically and emotionally with raw and honest lyrics that are about him wanting the same assurance he has given. He paints vivid pictures of someone who is willing to invest his own feelings if he feels he will get the same back.

“Home” features a mellow hip-hop beat that warms itself over to its listener right from the opening notes. Big Hoop showcases a vulnerable side and speaks his mind in the most emotive way. What makes this jam stand out is that it feels as though Big Hoop is speaking to his heart as much as the other person. As you can already tell from the way the album is going, he’s about to take a big step, and he needs to be sure. Hence the emotional depth underscored by his raw verses.

The last jam “For You” marks the end of this relationship stage, with a seemingly committed vow to follow. Big Hoop’s penmanship is showcased via the relatable rhymes and captivating chorus that he delivers in a sing-song manner, showcasing his versatility not only as a rapper but also as a singer. This is a refreshing confirmation that Big Hoop is indeed willing to take the next step and be the lady’s avatar, and he does so without missing a beat!

Raw, honest, memorable, relatable, and with deep emotional resonance, it is with such a full heart that I hereby recommend to you this sonic beauty that shines a shimmering light on hip-hop and rap and wipes off the negative stereotypes that the genre has always been painted by. Enjoy!
