Original Uman

Original Uman
Original Uman, de son vrai nom Manuel Istace, fait partie intégrante de l'historie du hip-hop belge. Pionnier de l'animation radio spécialisé en rap et étudiant à l'école d'art de Saint-Luc à Bruxelles, le jeune homme rejoint rapidement le trio de base De Puta Madre.

Diplômé de l'Académie royale des beaux-arts de Bruxelles, Uman fonde ensuite le sound system Bass Culture et perpétue à travers des prestations scéniques enragées l'esprit du dancehall jamaïcain dans toute la Belgique à travers d'incendiaires shows dans des clubs, concerts et festivals du Royaume.

Il participe, sous le nom de Lickweed, aux albums de De Puta Madre, 't Hof van Commerce ou, plus récemment, Starflam.

Le rythme chaloupé et militant du reggae de Uman mixé à Londres par les meilleurs producteurs du genre colle à merveille à l'âme frondeuse et authentique de ce jeune trentenaire.

Que ce soit avec Tiens-toi droit, qui a tout du tube en puissance avec sa rythmique implacable, ou l'entêtant L'habit ne fait pas le moine, chronique lucide du business d'aujourd'hui, Uman développe un style personnel à l'image du cri du c%u0153ur Y'a pas d'blème ou de La Chaîne alimentaire, impitoyable constat... alimentaire.

Militant, il lance aussi son Atomik George, parodie implacable de la politique du président Bush.

Dès 2007, Uman se lance dans une nouvelle aventure en sortant son premier album solo. Dans un répertoire où on ne le connaissait pas ou peu jusqu'à lors. Sur cet album, sans se défaire de ses textes engagés et de ses rythmiques reggae, l'artiste présente des mélodies tantôt mélancoliques, tantôt ensoleillées.

Junior Kelly

Junior Kelly
Tall, dreadlocked Junior Kelly is a devout Rastafarian on a serious musical mission which is manifested through the quality of his contemplative lyrics, the diversity of his substantial subject matter and his inspirational delivery. Born in Kingston 13, Junior was raised in nearby Spanish Town. Throughout his childhood, he was surrounded by music, his grandfather and father both played banjo, his mother sang in the Church and his oldest brother Jim was a popular Deejay with the Kilamanjaro Sound

There was a sense of comfort and security within the family; Despite their poor economic status they were rich in other ways. If it's soup today, we're happy, if it's crackers tomorrow, we're still happy, relates Junior, because we knew we had each other to lean on. The family was plummeted into depression with the murder of junior's oldest brother Jim. A part time caterer, Jim was the family's principal breadwinner and a role model for Junior ; Jim regularly practiced his lyrical toasts in the family living room, greatly influencing the career path of his youngest brother.

After Jim's death, to help support his family Junior followed soundsystems all over the island just for the opportunity to demonstrate his vocal and lyrical talents. He also began auditioning for several of the Producers comprising Kingston's crowded music circuit, attempting to record songs. Adhering to his principled Rastafarian lifestyle, he refused to compromise his lyrical content by writing lewd lyrics or songs disrespecting women.
