London-based songstress Dionne Reid is back into the spotlights with her first mixtape titled “Soundcheck”. Unlike the two previous EPs, this one incorporates a stronger Jamaican feel infusing classic reggae samples, a Major Lazer beat and the typical island patois. The whole project carries a special energy as it was recorded between the four walls of her bedroom.
“Soundcheck is an ode to my journey. A re-introduction to Dionne Reid”
Even though her releases were quite sporadic lately, Dionne was all up in the music accompanying artists like Julian Marley and Randy Valentine on local and international stages; the latter makes an appearance in the beginning of the mixtape on “Ring D Alarm”. Love, frustration, motivation.. there’s a bunch of genuine emotions hard not to take you over.
