Majic ft. Israel Starr ‘Likkleman’

Written by on June 9, 2014


Majic stated her quest to become involved in music as a reggae artist shortly after her 16th birthday in 2011. In a short space of time she has achieved things most artists could only dream about. She was the first female NZ artist to record at the legendary Tuff Gong studios in Kingston, Jamaica and is to release her debut album, featuring the new single Likkle Man, very soon. This young talent is one to watch out for and will be performing at Raggamuffin 2014! FACEBOOK 

Having been brought up surrounded by all things reggae, it’s only natural that Desta ‘Israel Starr’ Buchanan has become an important part of Aotearoa’s ever-growing reggae and hip-hop scenes. The son of local legend The Mighty Asterix, Israel Starr hails from Auckland but now resides in the culture capital Wellington, in the suburb of Upper Hutt, the birthplace of NZ hip-hop. Describing his style as ‘versatile’, Israel is able to rip up anything from hip-hop flows, sweet lovers rock and dancehall to smooth soul. He says, ‘being a dancehall artist you set your standards high, and to be able to mash up any style and work with any sound is a must’. FACEBOOKSOUNDCLOUD
