We recently attended the Kalawa Jazmee 24 year celebration as well as artist showcase. This is the evening where we were treated to an evening of performances from Kalawa artists. They performed music we are familiar with as well as some we should be anticipating soon.
Since Kalawa Jazmee is 24 years old, we asked attendees if they know the story of the record label. We also asked what they think made the longest running black owned independent record label last for so long.
Co-owner, Oskido broke down the story and also showed us his epic dance moves.
Check out what went down.
DJ Speedsta On Why Combos Communicating Was A Well Coordinated Collabo
We recently spoke to DJ Speedsta who released his joint, Combos Communicating 2 weeks ago. The song features Okmalumkoolkat and has been taking the country by storm because of its unique sound profile.
DJ Speedsta spoke to us about how the collaboration came along since he is well known for pairing up with upcoming talent. His two biggest songs, I Don’t Know and Mayo just went double platinum and triple platinum respectively. “When I work with upcoming artists, it sounds good, the song is together, there’s nothing missing. With Combos Communicating, it sounded really good with Malum’,” he says.
He also spoke about how well coordinated this collaboration was. “The nice thing with Malum’ and I and this song, it’s really really a collaboration from the artwork of the song to us shooting a music video. We’ve got merch coming up together. We literally have a WhatsApp group with our teams and everything we are doing in the song is 50/50.”.
