DJ Yaadcore
More and more youths, seeking to connect with their cultural roots, invariably come across particular names in the field of music. No doubt they eventually stumble upon Yaadcore. As his name suggests, he is at the center of Jamaica’s Reggae Revival.

His role in the movement is cemented by the fact that he was the first person ever to play the music of Kabaka Pyramid and Chronixx on Jamaican radio. In addition to that, he is Protoje’s touring DJ and has toured California & opened for Protoje’s band performances on his European fall tour, touching places like Italy, France, Portugal, Switzerland & Belgium. Also just recently opened for Protoje on an extensive tour of the west coast of US with reputable brand sponsorship from Leafly.

Growing up observing his father operate a sound system, Yaadcore naturally gravitated toward the same profession. As an adult, maturity urged him to decide what kind of music he would play at public events. He naturally opted for spiritually healing, organic reggae music and soon stopped accepting work in other genres.

Yaadcore settled into a weekly groove of selecting tunes at his increasingly popular Dubwise Jamaica event in Kingston on Wednesdays that has grown to become and international brand. Dubwise features a weekly vibration in Miami, Florida and have been to states like Washington DC, Atlanta, New York and California and has also sown the Dubwise seed in other countries like Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, Bermuda, Hungary, Romania, Malta, Germany, Kenya, & Ethiopia.

Those unable to have the Yaadcore experience in person need not go further than their computers. His SoundCloud page is a treasure chest of his globally acclaimed mixes, including the Reggae Aroma’s Volume 1 - 3 which have gained listens up to 210+ plays plus his official Protoje mixtapes that have over 100k+ hits along with a marijuana themed mix collaboration with the well renown VP Records that hits 240+ plays.
Natty Nation
Natty Nation
Critically-acclaimed hard roots rock reggae outfit Natty Nation is a collective of spiritual warriors. For over twenty years, the Madison, Wisconsin-based group has purely and fearlessly followed its inner artistic continuum. Along the way, Natty Nation has burst through genres while retaining a distinct roots reggae core.

Through it all—whether it's onstage conducting its shamanistic live show, or in the studio pushing the scope of its musicality while honing its sharp songcraft—Natty Nation has remained dedicated to one mission: spreading light.
