NEW VIRAL VIDEO: TOO MUCHMay 4, 2016


 

RANDY VALENTINE just dropped a new viral video for “Too Much” – a track taken from his “Radio Music” Mixtape which dropped 2 months ago. The video is a conceptual “one shot” of Randy filmed at 3’300m of altitude (at the top of the french alps) – which turns out to be the perfect setting for this song in which Randy cleverly questions his listeners on several topics before asking the final question: is he thinking too much? Answer that for yourself by viewing the video here:

“Does She”
I’m Not perfect, so when it comes to expressing matters of the Heart,
I Can be honest, Sometimes i Don’t Know where to start.
I wish I mastered the art of expression, Sorry I can only express my thoughts with Art.
Don’t Just hear my words, Feel between the lines.
Now ask yourself, Does she know She’s always on my mind?
Randy Valentine.

RANDY VALENTINE – RADIO MUSIC – 19 EXCLUSIVE TRACKS FOR FREE DOWNLOADFebruary 1, 2016

 
As some of you may know, we have been working hard over the past few months putting together RANDY VALENTINE‘s new mixtape “Radio Music” - which will be his 4th release.

 

On his first mixtape “Bring back the love” (which was downloaded over 60’000 times), RV voiced over a collection of classic reggae instrumentals from the “foundation” era of reggae. The idea behind this latest project is quite similar, with a twist: “Radio Music” is a 19 track journey which takes the listener back to the 90′s, the golden age of Hip-hop as RV, who has up until now has often been catalogued as a “Reggae artist” wished to show his versatility to his audience without leaving his jamaican roots – he already did that by collaborating with MAJOR LAZER to create “Roll the Bass” which was featured on their Billboard No1 album (PEACE IS THE MISSION) – and this mixture will certainly cement the fact that RANDY VALENTINE is not an artist which can be catalogued in to a specific genre, as “Music has no borders”.

 

This is what we believe will be achieved with this project on which he used a diverse range of classic rap instrumentals ranging from DR DRE‘s “Xxplosive” to DEAD PREZ‘s classic “Hip Hop”, PUFF DADDY‘s “Missing you” and many more…

 

“This project was Inspired by others and written solely to inspire another – It is a dedication to all my listeners… With hopes that it will become a daily “Chant for the Youths”. It carries the same energies as all my previous projects – This time we’re stepping forward into the 90′s Hip Hop Era Via my Global Radio Station Conscious FM 98.checkYourself. 

same energy, same message just a different formula. This is what’s on my Radio. FullJoy the Experience.”

RANDY VALENTINE – ALL I NEED & MIXTAPE RELEASEJanuary 18, 2016

 

HEMP HIGHER PRODUCTIONS & TEK-9 MOVEMENTS are proud to present RANDY VALENTINE’s  new video for “All I Need”. The video premiered Monday on Reggaeville and is also available on Facebook:

 

Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/RandyValentineReggae/videos/949368448432867/

 

The song is the first extract from his “Radio Music” mixtape which will be available for FREE DOWNLOAD February 1st 2016.

 

Those who know RV’s catalogue (which has been mainly reggae so far), may be surprised to recognize a classic hip-hop instrumental (DR DRE’s “Xxplosive Instrumental” ) used as the riddim track for this song, but once again RANDY VALENTINE proves his versatility as he never fails to deliver.

 

Here is what Randy had to say about the project:

 

“This project was Inspired by others and written solely to inspire another – It is a dedication to all my listeners… With hopes that it will become a daily “Chant for the youths”. It carries the same energies as all my previous projects – this time we took the same approach as we did with the “Bring Back The Love Mixtape” with a selection of classic beats as we realised that sometimes the best way forward is to take a step back… This time we’re stepping forward into the 90′s Hip Hop Era Via my Global Radio Station Conscious FM 98.checkYourself.
same energy, same message just a different formula. This is what’s on my Radio. FullJoy the Experience.”
- Randy Valentine

2015 WHAT A YEAR!December 31, 2015

 

It has been an amazing year for young reggae recording artiste RANDY VALENTINE who has spent most of 2015 between airports and the studio.

 

Not only did he embark on 2 european tours after the release of his “Still Pushing” EP (which topped european ITUNES REGGAE CHARTS), But 2015 also saw him travel all around the world, as he set foot for the first time in AUSTRALIA last May, where he performed at WOMAD, as well as his first official acoustic performance at SIRIUS XM headquarters in NEW YORK CITY.

 

2015 also saw him participate in 2 of the most talked about projects of the year:

 

- He featured on MAJOR LAZER‘s single “Roll The Bass” from their “Peace is the Mission” EP which was certified No1 BILLBOARD Electronic/ Dance album last summer.

 

- He laid down backing vocals on WU TANG‘s now notorious Single-copy Album “The Wu: Once upon a time in Shaolin” – which was sold last month for the record price of 2 Million dollars last month to American pharmaceutical giant Martin Shkreli.

 

He also released a number of singles, including a track on VP RECORDS / GREENSLEEVES compilation record:“The Biggest One drop Anthems 2015″ produced by Legendary jamaican producer CLIVE HUNT (who amongst others worked with STEVIE WONDER, JIMMY CLIFF, PETER TOSH, THE WAILERS & Many more).

 

2016 seems very promising for the London based artist who is set to drop a Mixtape in january followed by his debut album end of the year. RANDY VALENTINE has his views set on attacking new markets as he will be performing in TRINIDAD in February, before travelling back to europe for the ROTOTOM & FRIENDS TOUR alongside JUNIOR KELLY, DANIEL BAMBAATA MARLEY and more.

 

He will then be embarking on his very first US TOUR in June and July covering both the east and west coast, and will be available for european summer festivals in August.

 

2016 will be a busy year for sure, in which we will continue to witness the talented RANDY VALENTINE‘s growth, as he presses his mission to spread his message of Love and “over”-standing to the four corners of the world.
