By the looks of it, he’s struck countdown gold with his comeback single ‘Ride It’ only after a week of it hitting Sri Lanka’s biggest home music countdown, the single shot to number 1 in its second week and it stays put this week too. Here’s the rest of the countdown in case you weren’t tuned in to the show last night. Source
18th of May will always be remembered as the day good news finally came to an island war torn for 30 long years.

Today Iraj released a video not ...

It wasn’t too long ago that rapper KK dropped this and while no time has been mentioned, we reckon this would drop around the latter part of today. The band also celebrates 24 weeks on the YES Home Grown Top 15 with their hit single ‘Desire’.
It’s been a minute since Dj & Producer Van Luup released any new music, but now that he’s back..he’s going to be dropping some pretty exciting stuff, including ‘Outta Control’ which got its Lankan radio premiere on the YES Home Grown Top 15 last night.
It was only a few weeks ago that Iraj and the crew part of the single were teasing its release and we guess no one saw this video approach coming. Touching on the very sensitive subject of abuse & domestic violence, we think that Iraj has done a very good job at putting the spotlight on a topic not a lot of people would touch on.
You might remember Mikhail Daken as the front-man of that popular band from the 2000’s in Lanka – Picasso Recess and then later as a solo artist. Radio saw the release of ‘Sensibility’ almost 5 years ago and since then he’s been churning out good music. Fast forward further into the future, he’s cooking up more music and here’s only a taster.
When we first found about this band and clicked play on their soundcloud, you can only imagine our reaction…… and here’s why. If that take got you all interested in them, wait till you hear this! We caught up with the band (Soorya Hasthimuni, Swinly Hasthimuni, Supun Hasthimuni) for a quick one to one on the project and a tad ...
