    Award-winning Bristol lyricist, MC and label owner Gardna is about to embark on the biggest project of his career so far. His debut album ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’ is set to land on the 18th October and features 12 original tracks and a who’s who of featured artists and reggae and dub royalty. The first single and title track ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’  was released on Friday 11th October.
    Produced by the mighty Brad Baloo of The Nextmen (and producer credits to Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Kreed, Coki, and Gold Dubs), ‘Good Time Not A Long Time Time  destroys genre boundaries from the get-go. Delving into the world of reggae, dub, grime, hip-hop and everything in between, it’s a culmination of Gardna’s already extensive career, and demonstrates incredible abilities as a songwriter, lyricist, host and MC. With a little help from the likes of Hollie Cook, Kiko Bun, Eva Lazarus, Omar, Fox, Dread MC, Charli Brix, Rider Shafique and Taiwan MC, it showcases talent on both a fresh and legendary scale and provides an inimitable sound from start to finish.


    On creating the record Gardna added:

    “Good Time Not A Long Time’ is a summary of my personal experiences within music. Be that good times, long times or anything in between I wanted to create an album that gives the listener both lyrically and musically an insight as to what it's like to be a young man growing up in Bristol and travelling the world in front and behind a sound system. ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’ is also an expression made amongst people when they are somewhere for a short amount of time and they want to make the most out of their time being there. Most of these songs were written on the road, during busy show periods, in between the late nights, early mornings and all the rest. I'm always up and on to the next place, so I figured that it sums up the album pretty well. I've had the privilege to work with some of my musical heroes, as well as some of my favourite new artists on this. It's been an honour to have their support on my first long player.”
    Often championed by some of the biggest names in the business; David Rodigan, MistaJam, Steve Lamacq, Don Letts, Toddla T and Huw Stephens to name a few, Gardna’s impact on the Bristol music scene has expanded to just about every corner of the country and it’s easy to hear why. Over the last few years alone he joined forces with Gentleman’s Dub Club and The Nextmen to perform on four of the tracks on their ‘Pound For Pound’ record, in fact the lead single ‘Rudeboy’ racked up plays across BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and made it’s way into Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist.
    As well as flexing his studio muscle lately, Gardna’s reputation on the live circuit has resulted in hosting and performing across the UK and beyond for close to 10 years now. His incredible energy and downright likeability hasn’t gone unnoticed, and to celebrate the new album release he’ll be touring globally over the next few months.

    Italian production and soundsystem unit Tiberias Towa and Scottish singer Tom Spirals showcase their strong international link in their new EP Flex Like Water, released on 21.09.19 through Pure Niceness Records, based in Lyon, France, have been pushing new school digital and dub music featuring worldwide singers and riddim makers since 2014. 



    Producer Kilimanzion of Tiberias Towa has crafted unmissable deep dub riddims, layered with bouncy digital skanks and heightened by the conscious lyrics of singer and MC Tom Spirals for the highly-anticipated 10-track release. The pair originally met in 2016 at the Italian festival Mandrea. They came together remotely to create a dubplate, Reap What I Sow (which now features as the first track on the EP) and in 2017 Kilimanzion travelled to Tom’s home of Glasgow in Scotland to perform together at the legendary local reggae dance, Walk n Skank. During that visit, the EP came into creation and following two years of tweaking and perfecting, is now ready to set fire to sound systems cross the globe, gaining support and spins already from sounds such as King Shiloh, Mungo’s Hi Fi and Sinai Sound.




    "The visual identity of the project has been developed by french graphic legend Laska and is enhanced with a full-length music video for title track Flex Like Water; premiered on Reggaeville, filmed by Re.Compose at the internationally renowned dance Teachings in Dub, and featuring Mungo’s Hi Fi (Scotland) and Legal Shot Sound (France) where Tom Spirals performed in April 2019.  



    The full EP, includes four original songs; a weighty dub version of each song; and heavy remix from Bukkha of title track Flex Like Water (only available as bonus track on PureNiceness Records' Bandcamp with full album purchase) , calling on the dark steppers sound he has mastered so well to ensure you screw your bass face even tighter than you thought possible.

    Singer and songwriter Var (former lead singer of Pentateuch) releases his first official single “Jah Love” across all digital platforms on May 3, on the Supow label and his own Hillsman Records. The acoustic song features Var, accompanied by Shaquir McQueen on guitar, singing a beautiful psalm of praise about the infinite love of the Almighty. No matter one’s faith or creed, there are some things we all believe and feel, like the inspiring and overwhelming sense of awe and gratitude, of which Var sings. “His love gives me joy, makes me high like a ganja,” he croons in the song’s opening lines. “Your love is perpetual, your love is so special, your love is forever, Jah,” Var continues in the song, which feels authentic, free-flowing and organic. The young singer also finds inspiration in Psalm 23, which he paraphrases quite appropriately in his verse. Caught in the emotion, he sings out after the second verse until the song nears its end.



    Var says he is happy “Jah Love” is finally being released and it is being done under his label. “People know me from my work with Pentateuch Movement or Inna De Yard, but this is now me as a solo artiste, with my own production and label involved,” says Var. “Hillsman Records is me and my cousin, Shaquir, who plays the guitar on Jah Love.” The single was recorded at Small World Studio and co-produced and mixed by Supow, a label operated by singer and producer Patrice Bart-Williams, a Sierra Leonean-German singer-songwriter and music producer. “We have a very good partnership over the years; and we give thanks for the support,” says Var.




    When he is not pursuing his solo endeavours, Var is a touring guest with Reggae collective Inna De Yard, with whom he has performed at numerous festivals across Europe and the United States. Also, a songwriter, Var has co-written songs for Raging Fyah, Kabaka Pyramid, Richie Spice and Duane Stephenson. Var and Hillsman Records have much more in store and may be followed on Instagram @Var_Hillsman and Facebook @VarHillsman.
