German rapper Marteria (aka Marsimoto) released his first album in 2007 but has been touring as a singer performance artist since at least 2002. His music may not be so well known in the US because it is in German, but this is great stuff! The music video in itself is a huge production feat, but the song in its own right is colossal, heavy, complex, and intelligent.
Listen to more music by Marteria at his official website.
Gentleman is a Reggae artist out of Germany but is a Jamaican at heart. This song is off of his 5th album Another Intensity. He’s got 6 studio albums out now. His music regularly does well on the music charts in Europe, but mostly just in German speaking countries even though most of his music is in English, probably because he was using a German record label, but after changing to Universal this year it looks like his music is getting much more international exposure. His music tends to carry a spiritual message and makes references to “God”, although no specific religion seems to be mentioned.
It seems in this music video he’s saying that we should be careful not to lose ourselves or our relationships by becoming consumed in or alienated by technology; although I didn’t real the lyrics. There are tons of great reggae artists out there, I just happen to be posting his stuff today. I don’t listen to Reggae that much so I’m not too sure how well Gentleman is known among American reggae fans.
