Powerhouse Production & Team Yaga Sounds present “Dem Bad Mind (DBM)”
Powerhouse production team, Yaga Sounds, features Sizzla Kalonji with a tune entitled DBM (Dem Bad Mind) currently available iTunes. While Sizzla is constantly releasing songs throughout the year, this trio of dynamism aspires to take this one from a major buzz on the streets to the international market.
Sizzla delivers a heavy message over a driving up-tempo riddim, “You have some people go on like them are the best, all them do is fight against the progress, tell da wicked man say dem just can’t test, tell dem life over death….Dem Bad Mind.”
Dubbed as a hard-hitting dance hall tune, DBM gives a hardcore message. It speaks against negative people and negative situations, while promoting a good positive environment and positive energy. Playfully at the end Sizzla teases with an unpredictable ending for the ladies.
Yaga Sounds member, EchoSlim described the message, “Dem Bad Mind is deep in turns of all the social issues that are going on with the Ferguson Riots, the murder of Mike Brown and Mario Deane, all the way to Trayvon Martin to as far back to even Emmett Till. It represents injustice happening to people all over the world. It speaks to everyone that has an unjust way of thinking from politicians to police officers to every day people. No one is exempt, from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low.”
“The riddim is going to be one of the baddest riddims of the year. This track should be one that the DJ’s will like and will turn up the parties. It can fit in any time of early or late juggling. The lyrics and the riddim fit in for everyday life, everyone can relate to it. Look out for more bad riddims that we will be releasing in the future,” expressed one of the members of Yaga Sounds, Joshua “Gappo” Manning, last year.
Yaga Sounds is currently made up of Flexx, a Dominican and world-renowned engineer that works with Flo Rida, Lauryn Hill, Robbie Shakespeare and others, EchoSlim, a Trinidadian that has toured the world with Black Violin under the moniker DJ TK and Gappo, who is a Jamaican and the son of legendary reggae singer Donald Manning of the Abyssians and is currently the keyboard player for Beres Hammond. Yaga Sounds is an unorthodox sound crew. A hybrid of a sound system and a live band, aimed to spread West Indian culture and music around the world.
