RUDEBOYS

RUDEBOYS is the latest single by Scepta (pronounced Septa), slated for release June 25, 2021. It’s a reggae dancehall track production by Derrick Barnett and Lamar Reynolds under the World Scann Family label with Scepta as executive producer. Derrick is responsible for the instrumentation and Lamar (LMR Studios) was responsible for the engineering, mixing and mastering.

Scepta’s music has always been music with a message with the focus on talking to the youths. From his first album, APPEALING THOUGHTS to his recent 5 track cd compilation, TELL YUH BOUT YAAD in March 2020, always includes a message for the youths. The track RUDEBOYS is no different. It’s a plea for them to put down the guns.

As a Rastafarian Pan Africanist and youth soccer coach, Scepta lives what he preaches in which the youths need to look towards their future and become productive people. The guns and that lifestyle lead to a short life and destruction.

My Opinion

Every artist should have a website…

In my opinion, because artists can have so many portals like TIK TOK, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer and many more, it is good to have in one place, everything about you and your project. Instead of naming all the individual places you rest your music, you can tell people to check your website www. mymusic.com which can hold all of your musical links. Whether it’s a website or even a one-page, it’s a great one stop place for people to find you.

MUSIC NEWS, INFO AND IDEAS

Yes, CDs sound better than vinyl.

One of the great myths in the audio world is that vinyl sounds better than CDs. It’s just not true. Sure, you might prefer the warm analog sound, specifically its crackling and other imperfections, as well as the visceral experience of actually dropping the needle on a spinning record, but CDs are simply the best sounding physical audio format that most people can get their hands on. Compared to vinyl, CDs are able to produce a wider dynamic range and more bass. Plus they’re not going to skip (unless scratched). Read more… (Article by GEAR PATROL)
