rootsnwingz presents new artists: Eli-Mac

eli-mac
Hawaiian Filipino singer Eli-Mac, aka Ciara-Camile Roque Velasco, released her debut reggae album “DubStop EP” last month. All five tracks are great thanks to Eli-Mac’s singular voice and the top-notch production by Live Animaux (J Boog, The Green, etc). I love her work so far and look forward to see what this artist has in store for us in the future!

Watch the awesome explicit official music video of “Dub Stop”, the first single off the EP:

Also, here’s her amazing collaboration with Japanese reggae singer, song writer, producer, club DJ and owner of an independent music label, Likkle Mai. Also off Eli-Mac’s new album, the track is entitled “Young Soul Rebels” and is a truly original dub reggae tune. A big tune all around, two unique female voices, a positive, uplifting message and some real heavy dub sounds from producers. I listen to this one on repeat. “Keep the keiki (meaning youth in Hawaiian) strong!”

Finally, here’s one of Eli-Mac’s first singles, “Guava Jelly”, a cover of Bob Marley’s hit. Produced in Jamaica by Stephen Marley, who also does some toasting on the track!

German reggae singer Gentleman and British / Vincentian Marlon Roudette of Mattafix sing the 2005 hit song “Big City Life” by Mattafix on MTV Unplugged. Amazing version of a timeless song performed by a full string and wind instrument orchestra, featuring the legendary Dean Fraser on the sax. A big collaboration!
