Riding high from the success of his singles, Baby Mama Drama and Road Tonight, reggae singjay Dwayne 'D-Medz' Adams is putting in the hours to complete his second EP, a live-play roots reggae compilation.

"This album will be the follow-up to my debut EP, Road Tonight, and will boast an exclusive roots reggae vibe", quips D-Medz. "I'm working with some of the most talented musicians and producers in the business, including Dean Fraser, Robbie Lyn, and Glenroy Browne. The sessions so far have been great and we're doing the recordings as a live-play session at Tuff Gong Studios. The energy you get doing a live recording is amazing, and it's definitely going to be something 'different' and impacting. I haven't officially named the EP yet, but I've completed all the writing for the tracks and we're gearing towards a release in late December or early January 2015."

In addition to finalising his new EP, D-Medz is also stepping up promotion for his new single, Rebel Souljah. Produced by Zimbabwean label, Abra Tribe Music, on the Marange rhythm, the track has been buzzing on African airwaves as well as in the Caribbean. He said, "Rebel Souljah is an empowering song and was composed to appeal to Africans or 'freedom fighters' at home and abroad. It should inspire listeners to make positive contributions to society and to fight for equality."

The song, he confirms, has been getting a lot of "good vibrations", especially in Ghana, opening the doors for him to do a lot more work with other African producers.
