Why Raw Beat? Because it is the real thing. We try to keep the real feel of the music without over-production. Too much cleaning of the audio tracks actually takes us away from the street sound. That authentic sound that makes you want to get up and wind your waist (dance).
The types of artists that we look for are genuine and authentic. They sing from the heart and have a positive message. Raw Beat music is in the groove and has that thump (drum and bass).
We promote artists who are strictly original and who are dedicated to the upliftment of mankind through personal expression.
Izanah Jones is a roots reggae recording artist who produces this Caribbean music in Jamaica. She is considered a World Reggae artist.
Having a background in video, film and audio production, Izanah’s early job experience introduced her to significant producers, artists and musicians such as Coxsone Dodd, Jackie Mittoo, Willie Lindo, Noel Brownie, members of Bob Marley’s band such as Glen Adams, Aston Family Man Barret, Tyrone Downie, Karl Van Pitterson (one of Bob Marley’s engineers), Pablo Faukourie and other greats.
These people were integral to the roots reggae movement, and this influenced Izanah’s approach to music. Coxsone Dodd used to tell her, “those who feel it know it”, and Jackie Mittoo would reiterate to her, “Reggae is a feeling like you’ve never felt before and some people never feel at all”, as he laughed out loud. Fortunately, Izanah Jones is one who has always been feeling it, and this is reflected in her music.
Caribbean Music is a synthesis of African, European, Indian, native and other diverse musical influences. It has gained a wide popularity worldwide. Specifically, Reggae, has become so well received that a sub genre of Caribbean Music called World Reggae has developed. This includes artists whose home is not in Jamaica where reggae was born. Reggae, with its roots in Jamaica, is where Izanah does most of her recording.
In the bitter cold of the winter while living in Denver, Colorado, Izanah heard Bob Marley’s song Natural Mystic on the radio and liked it so much that she decided that if there was indeed a Natural Mystic, she was going to find it; so she took the next flight to Jamaica and the rest is history.
Izanah feels at home in Jamaica with the cool Caribbean breeze, the coconut trees, the music vibes, the fresh natural raw food and most of all, the people.
