Survive Riddim is the latest compilation from Blakkwuman22 Music. It’s a six-track project that features new songs performed by reggae legend Mikey General, veteran bass player and recording artist Wormbass, vocalist Earl Smith Jr. – who is the son of famed guitarist Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith – and lyricist, songwriter and producer Karamanti.
The beat for Survive Riddim was built by Lamar Thompson exclusively for Blakkwuman22 Music, with a live bassline played by the aforementioned Wormbass. All songs were mixed and mastered by Old Harbor based AudioTraxx Production and distributed independently by Blakkwuman22 Music.
The Survive Riddim can aptly be described as mellow, relaxing and enjoyable; with songs centered around freedom, love, motivation, spirituality and the 70s. It is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and all other streaming platforms.
French producer, Sis-Production, in collaboration with Nat Ladiva, presents the Universel Reggae Sound Compilation. The project features “Note To Self,” a track from our recently released Life 101 Riddim. “Note To Self” was written and performed by Karamanti.

Karamanti is joining a host of top-tier artists this summer in Togo, West Africa, for the Cultures N Reggae Festival, presented by Nat Vibes Connexion. She will perform on approximately five shows in various cities in and around Togo; all under the banner of Cultures N Reggae. Exact dates and locations will be shared shortly.
Following the unveiling of her EP, The Black God, a few days ago, Karamanti is now releasing a second track from that project, the first being Back Against The Wall (with Mikey General).
This second single is entitled Black Song and it’s a roots reggae record that addresses several issues surrounding race and covert racism.
