Augustus Pablo
Horace Swaby (June 21, 1954 – May 18, 1999), better known as Augustus Pablo, the melodica king, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer and keyboardist, active from the 1970s onwards. He was perhaps the first person to use the melodica as a viable musical instrument. He was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica and learned to play the organ in Kingston College School. It was at that point an unnamed girl lent him the melodica. Fascinated by the instrument, Pablo rarely put it down.

Let the Water Flow
This is my second release on Spotify. The first one is a reggae track, this one is hip-hop (trap, then drill). Using the metaphor of water, I really talk about money, prodigality and Universal Basic Income.more

Yardie Boy – A Powerpack of Talent Some people are born to achieve greatness in their life. There’s something about them that sets them apart from others. They’re like a star shining bright in the night sky that’s hard to miss. Junior Dale Buddington aka Yardie Boy is one such star. How He Started? Born in Jamaica, Yardie Boy grew up listening to Meek Mill and Bob Marley, which according to him, helped him through the not-so-easy life on Jamaican streets. He was greatly influenced by the works of Post Malone and Roddy Ricch, who transition between singing and rapping seamlessly. The great American rappers didn’t just inspire Yardie Boy, but he was motivated to make his own name in the rapping industry. His life in Jamaica wasn’t the easiest. At the age of just 19, Yardie Boy packed his bags, and off he went to New York City with a dream of becoming a rapper. He wanted to pursue a career in music, and he did it his way! His Career Today Yardie Boy is just 27 years old and has already established himself as a songwriter, singer, and rapper. He’s currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The massive success at such a young age hasn’t made him any bit complacent. He’s on his journey to major success, and it looks like there’s no stopping him! He continues striving to expand his career and shine within his community, which has been under shadow for too long now. With more than 10 originals to his name already, Yardie Boy is on the way to becoming the next household name in rapping. Yardie Boy has an active social media presence, which is also his primary mode of having the world listen to him. He has two YouTube channels, one with 963 and the other has 1,000 subscribers. He’s also quite active on TikTok, with 478 followers. Yardie Boy can be found on Twitter, Apple Music, and Spotify. In short, no matter which music platform you prefer, you’ll find Yardie Boy’s greatness there! This powerpack of talent only knows how to grow. He released his first single album, Unbelievable, in 2020. From emotional, heartfelt songs to party songs, he has touched it all. While his song ‘I Don’t Wanna Cry’ will touch your heart, ‘Coca Cola Body’ will get you on your toes to groove and dance. He knows how to reach people with all kinds of music tastes, and he’s doing it pretty well so far! Yardie Boy writes about his day-to-day life experiences and tries to connect with people through repetitive lyrics and modern beats. He’s truly an artist. Every piece of work he produces isn’t just music, but it’s his way of conversing with the world. He knows the art of plucking the right strings, and this is what has led to him becoming such a massive success at such a young age. The Road to Success Yardie Boy, a 27-years old boy, has already stepped foot in the music industry with a bang, and we can’t wait to see (and listen) what more he has to offer. We’ve absolutely no doubt that he’ll do all things great and even more!more
