ROC RIVA HAS DISHED UP 3 RED HOT SIZZLING BANGERS FOR 2020 ... COME CHECK IT OUT


2020 hasn't dished out much to smile about ... unless you are a ROC RIVA fan. Then you have plenty to smile about this year after  the band unleashed  3 red hot sizzling tracks : BABYLON YU RASS, KING KONG PAPA ( Lie To Me) , and recently dropped  YOUR ENVY TOO PLENTY ;  ("a reflection and a request that we examine ourselves to open our hearts to caring for each other positively. " )

FYI : ROC Riva is a group which comprises of 3 persons: Derrick Brown , Elton Earlington and  Lezleigh Dacosta.



The band landed on SHYRICK DANCEHALL RADIO in early 2018 with their single ROCK YOU WITH RUB A DUB and quickly followed by LOVE SAVES LIVES.  The band became an instant hit with SHYRICK NATION as well as our followers in Russia/ Northern Europe who are sitting on VK.com. 


However Roc Riva's beginning goes a bit further back to when the band released its first official single SAIL (a  love song that speaks eloquently to the virtues of fidelity)  in 2013. 


One of the reasons ROC RIVA is such a success here at SHYRICK DANCEHALL RADIO  is that the band  puts a lot of careful time and attention on every aspect of the track before they kick it out. From the lyrics, to the riddim to the engineering. Everything has been given first class  treatment to the very last detail,  giving the track and the band a feel of  "intelligent quality."  And if that's not a real term then ROC RIVA is now going to make it their own! 


Roc Riva provides carefully constructed lyrics that eloquently convey a message intended to be contemplated. They will not waste your time on meaningless banter. And they dish up these lyrics with maaaaad harmonized vocals on excellent well constructed riddims.  This all makes for some guaranteed good good vibes ! 


FYI : The name of the group is augmented from Rock River which is a small exotic village in Clarendon, Jamaica, the river running through it offers respite to all who seek solace. 


We had  caught up with band member  DERRICK BROWN  to ask  ask him a few questions about the band and what it plans are for 2021, check it out :

SHYRICK: Derrick What inspires the lyrics in your music?

DERRICK BROWN : Life inspires most of the time but on other occasions I will just come up with an idea and write. I guess that is life same way.. 

SHYRICK:  Do you desire your lyrics to touch your listener in a specific way ? (For example: to motivate them to action, or create an understanding from a different perspective) 

DERRICK BROWN : Both, to inspire and motivate.

SHYRICK: What drives you  to continue to write and perform especially knowing  how difficult and more often than not  financially draining this industry is?  

DERRICK BROWN : Passion for the music that's what drives me...  

SHYRICK: You produce your tracks to your own label "Wolfe House Music," are your plans to produce other artists on this label as well or collaborate with other artists in this genre?  
 
DERRICK BROWN : Most definitely..as a matter of fact I'm releasing a cover of a love song by a good friend of mine..Keisha Patterson early 2021 . 


SHYRICK: What do you see as the future for "ROOTS" reggae? 

DERRICK BROWN : In my humble opinion Roots Reggae will always be around, because it's a genre that speaks of the ills of societies all over the world and people need to be reminded...

SHYRICK:    When this current "pandemic" situation settles and venues start to open up again, are you looking to take your band on tour and if so where ? 

DERRICK BROWN: ROC Riva will definitely be on the road. Anywhere the people call we will answer... 

SHYRICK: What's up ahead for ROC Riva , what can your fans look forward to ?
  
DERRICK BROWN:  Our current single YOUR ENVY TOO PLENTY has  a video in the works as we speak, it will be ready for release in January 2021.
