EVENT PREVIEW : THE LEGENDS OF REGGAE ARTIST OF THE MONTH: STYLO G'S MAKING MOVES Our pick for this issue's reggae artist of the month is the British, Jamaica born, Stylo G. Coming from a musical background, he's the son of the late Poison Chang as well as brother to producer and engineer Kodi Starr (Crazy Cousins). Stylo G moved to South London from Jamaica when he was 14 and release his first significant song, "My Yout", featuring Sickman and Ice Kid which boosted his reputation significantly. "Call Mi a Leader" and "Soundbwoy" also boosted his track record, with Soundbwoy peaking at number 18 on the UK Singles Chart and featuring on Clean Bandit's hit song, "Come Over." Stylo G infuses different UK born genres into his reggae tracks including Grime and Dubstep, to make an unlikely, but great mix. Continuing to make moves in the industry with his fusion of Jamaican and UK, he came out with "Call Me a Yardie" back in 2011. Having won the 2014 MOBO awards for Best Reggae Artist Act, Stylo G immediately immersed himself in the UK underground scene and has since made tunes that are true to his Jamaican roots and still fresh on the UK music scene, with his work even earning him praise from fellow Jamaican Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt. 54 ISSUE 87 / 2016 REGGAE PLAYLIST Cah Get Me Down Teflon Good Vibes Josh Heinrichs Youths Fi Rich Natel Nice Up Yourself Collie Buddz Here's the reggae on our playlist this month:
