Blakkwuman22 Music presents Restart Riddim

Restart Riddim is a four-track dancehall compilation featuring Peppery, Sherida Sharpe, I-Talawah and Karamanti. The project was independently released on November 26th, and as such, is now available on all music platforms.

The idea for the record was conceptualized after we shared the first single from Karamanti’s upcoming album, Start With A Prayer, and noticed that the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Everybody that heard the track fell inlove with it; and several artists reached out to ask if they could voice on the riddim. Naturally, we were very selective and decided to only work with the aforementioned performers.

The beat for the Restart Riddim was built by Lamar Thompson for Blakkwuman22 Music. All the artists wrote their respective songs, with the exception of the title track, which is sung by Sherida Sharpe; it was penned by Karamanti.


Karamanti & Crude E’ Vil will be live on Instagram today

This Wednesday, October 13th at 12noon dancehall artists Karamanti and Crude E’ Vil – the CEO and owner of The Tech Head Records – will go live on Instagram to discuss Karamanti’s new song, PRAY 4 U.

The track is featured on the Field Marshal Riddim, which was released a few days ago via The Tech Head imprint. Click here to stream and download the entire album.

Peppery Records On The Restart Riddim

As we continue to work on the Restart Riddim, we have been successful in securing a track from dancehall artist Peppery. The Jamaican-born U.K. based lyricist recorded on the riddim a few days ago; and as we have a come to expect from him he delivered a solid tune.

Peppery has been featured on other releases from Blakkwuman22 Music: the Just Believe Riddim and the Sprung Riddim.

The Restart Riddim is still in its production phase. Three songs have already been recorded and our hope is to have a total of five for this project.

Karamanti shares first single from her upcoming album “Start with a Prayer”

Earlier this year dancehall artist Karamanti announced that she would be releasing a new studio album. The initial plan was to have the project out at the end of May, but unfortunately that date was not met. The album’s release date has been changed on a couple of occasions; this is due in part to amendments being made to songs already recorded, as well as the addition of new music.

That being said, on Tuesday, August 17th, Karamanti shared the LP’s first single, Start With A Prayer. The hardcore dancehall track is presented as a form of devotion; and as the album is titled Spiritual Warfare, the lead single gives a clear indication of the lyrical content that is to be feature throughout the full project.

The rhythm for Start With A Prayer was created by Old Harbour (Jamaica) based producer AudioTraxx Productions, which is headed up by Lamar Thompson. Click here or on the image above to listen and download “Start with a Prayer.”

Lion Face I-Talawah records on BW22’s “Restart Riddim”

In a few weeks Blakkwuman22 Music, the record label owned and operated by dancehall artist Karamanti, will release the Restart Riddim. This is a hardcore dancehall juggling that will feature new music from various artists. Among those that will be on the project is popular Jackson Town deejay Lion Face I-Talawah.

Lion‘s new song will be a follow up to his now trending single, Survivor, which was shared earlier in the year on the Mountain Top Riddim (Haile Cush Records). Although that compilation featured mega stars like Jah Mason and Fantan Mojah, it was Lion Face‘s Survivor that captured the attention of the masses.

In an effort to maintain the momentum, two days ago Lion Face joined Karamanti in the studio and recorded a powerful song titled Truth. On the record, the hardcore lyricist touched on everything from the lowest form of poverty to the highest form of corruption; all while highlighting his Rastafarian faith.
