Reggae singer Apocalypse releases new LP ‘A Life 4 a Life’

The singer and songwriter of reggae music known as Apocalypse has released his latest LP record, “A Life 4 a Life.” The full-length modern reggae record contains 10 original Apocalypse songs for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published on the Black Circle Records independent record label entirely without the financial or managerial support of the corporate music industry. Dark, intelligent, and infused at its heart with the contemporary reggae tradition, “A Life 4 a Life” is a modern reggae album with a fresh edge and a powerful message.

Apocalypse (also sometimes billed simply as Apoc) is first and foremost a careful lyricist with plenty to say. His themes range between a wide variety of topics, such as social theory, international and domestic politics, and easy-going, lighthearted party anthems. His latest LP, “A Life 4 a Life” also features the considerable talents of Nova on its two closing tracks, “Gas Cloud” and “Universe.”

Apocalypse and Black Circle Records are based in one of the Caribbean’s most active reggae hotbeds, South Florida. “A Life 4 a Life,” while not Apocalypse’s first full-length album, is his most prominent official release since Black Circle’s 2012 record, “Silver and Gold,” a compilation showcasing the label’s best artists, Bone, Taz, Ragga, and Darwin, as well as the two appearing on “A Life 4 a Life,” Nova and Apocalypse.

Black Circle Records has been steadily climbing the charts at bustling online music outlets such as iTunes and ReverbNation, and the label’s official pages at Twitter and other social networks have many hundreds of followers. Setting new high standards for production and musical integrity, Black Circle Records is showing how albums like “A Life 4 a Life” represent the aim of conscientious reggae music and all art forms seeking to change the world.

“A Life 4 a Life” by Apocalypse is available online worldwide.

Black Circle Records releases new LP ‘Eye of the Storm’

The independent music label known as Black Circle Records has released their latest compilation LP, “Eye of the Storm.” The record is composed of 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes, and is the first volume of a planned series of such records from the Black Circle label, first founded in 2012. The LP compilation features performances, lines and rhymes by such singers and rappers as Raseek, Apoc, Bone, Chunky, Nova, and Jah D. A widely varied selection of reggae and Caribbean rap tracks full of groove, soul and spirit, “Eye of the Storm” is a definitive statement that Black Circle Records is here to stay.

 

Not available to the public except in short demo takes until 23 August 2014, “Eye of the Storm”has already been reviewed at Amazon.com a total of 26 times and boasts a startling 4.5/5 stars overall. Black Circle Records’ previous EP compilation record, “Silver and Gold,” turned heads in 2012 with its all-star lineup of performers such as Darwin, Taz and Ragga, in addition to core Black Circle musicians and songwriters Bone, Apoc, and Nova. Bone, Apoc, and Nova have each returned to reprise their roles in more exciting sonic detail for this latest release from Black Circle records, “Eye of the Storm, Vol. 1.”

 

For listeners with an ear for more than straight-up beats and groovy instrumentation, “Eye of the Storm” offers lyrical content far beyond the stereotypical fodder of popular public radio. Themes on the record stretch from powerful personal experiences to the continuing battle against racism and prejudice, and from the simply romantic to the more spiritually Rastafarian.

 

Fans of reggae and rap music alike are likely to be enthusiastic about “Eye of the Storm,” the first volume in an ongoing series from Black Circle Records.

 

“Eye of the Storm” from Black Circle Records is available online worldwide beginning August 23, 2014.
