FEATURED ARTISTES : JLogix ft. Fire Lion – Party Hard (LOVE DIH VIBES RIDDIM)
Summer settings arrived early this year, and now we’re in full swing! Toronto’s prominent Dancehall artists JLogix and Fire Lion have teamed to release the chune “Party Hard” on the Love Dih Vibes Riddim produced by SoUnique Records.
This white label release is designed to be played before IOctane’s “Love Dih Vibes” as the duo rave and party hard and shell down the bar! Women love the swag and the promoter loves the ‘sold out’ bar status making this chune a must play with the only other song on the riddim which comes from artist Brik Tears.
When asked about the chune, JLogix said “we made this record because when we party, we party hard, no matter where we are in the world!”
