As One Half Of the Duo Born Jamericans Edley Shine made an impenetrable mark on the Hip-hop/Reggae Landscape with the Classic
Albums Kids From Foreign & Yardcore. With His Distinct voice and ear for melodies the humble artist from Washington DC with #DABIGVOICE has returned to seal his legacy for generations to come.
Edley Shine has returned with what he helms as a dissertation of sorts on his unspoken skills as an individual artist.
Using these components Edley was able to dig deep and craft a sound he has been in search of since 1998. Songs like Big Mon Ting which is an anthem on how growing into maturity and starting a family changes the way your friends may perceive your new perspective.
In Cyann Recova Shine is in full 90’s form with a girls anthem that takes us back to the time when the riddims were heavy and the lyrics where clean yet still potent.
Factory Skin finds Edley in a sing jay stance addressing the Natural Beauty of woman that has been lost to the social media culture of the day. He wants the
ladies to listen to the words of this song carefully and overstand that natural is always better. There is also the first single and video Babylon Breeze (meaning man made air) which is sure to resignate with Edley Shine’s core fan base. The video was shot on a rainy day in the hills of St. Elizabeth Jamaica were Edley declares he is content as an elder statesman in the game and gives gems to younger artist over a heavy boom-bap bass driven beat on the state of the culture.
Shine’s new project Based on Talent is 6 Songs of him shedding his past gruff voiced beast cadence to show a full beautiful arsenal of vocal range and penmanship. Edley says that he purposely used only songs he had written with no featur us and production from Roe Summerz producer/engineer for (Koffee, Tommy Lee, Ding Dong & Irish Hill Records) and new comer Riddim Boss producer for (Vybz Kartel, Island Wav Records).
Natural Beauty of woman that has been lost to the social media culture of the day.
