This re-vision of "Is This Love" was done a few years ago as a free "white label" promo. Please feel free to share.
Pisando Descalço Maneva Pisando descalço nesse chão molhado Deito do teu lado para relaxar Fazendo fogueira, sem eira nem beira Deitado na esteira vendo o luar Pego o meu violão Canto uma canção que já fez maluco se por a dançar Aquele doce Que derrete a mente no desembaraço desse meu cantar Aquela morena De saia pequena com seus olhos grandes parece voar Hoje na natureza Não importa a feira é dia de doideira e não de trabalhar Brinco pelo espaço, estreitando laços Eu não tenho fardos para carregar Minha vida é plena, não faço besteira Peço a padroeira pra me abençoar Escuto meu coração Pois a minha razão muitas vezes atrapalha o meu pensar E ele me trouxe O discernimento justo no momento em que pensei parar Saí do dilema Entre o asfalto duro e olhar paredes prefiro cantar Hoje na natureza Não importa a feira é dia de doideira e não de trabalhar
With the same punch as your morning caffeine hit, 18-year-old Koffee releases her new single, “Toast, the follow up to her debut hit single “Raggamuffin”. Born Mikayla Simpson, Koffee’s mission is to preserve Jamaica’s roots and culture in music and to empower the youth of her generation through her musical journey across the world. Originally inspired into making music by listening to reggae and dancehall artists like Proteje and Super Cat, everything came full circle earlier this year when the former reached out to request she perform with him. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind since. “Toast”, taken from her upcoming EP “Rapture”, blesses the listener with energy and youthful pride, and the accompanying music video is as celebratory as the name suggests, taking viewers on a tour through the site of the Paint Jamaica Project in Downtown Kingston, Jamaica, while lyrics lay down an ode to Koffee’s achievements so far. Produced by Walshy Fire & Izy Beats, “Toast” brings a signature blend of sunshine and fun times that’ll leave you buzzing.

The track details multi-instrumentalist, producer and singer Scott Woodruff’s upbeat narrative of wanting to smoke with the one he loves, highlighted in the lyrics: “I wanna get high, I wanna get low, come on I wanna smoke little spliff with you / Lord knows I’m not a fool, I’m just crazy for you.” “Smokin’ Love” was recorded the same way as all their songs; in Woodruff’s home studio with each instrument individually recorded and layered in unison to one other. The band has previewed the track through their social media sites and have recently started playing it live. http://www.stickfiguremusic.com https://www.facebook.com/stickfiguremusic http://www.twitter.com/StickFigureDub http://www.soundcloud.com/stickfigure https://www.instagram.com/stickfiguremusic
