Bobby Konders Recruits Cocoa Tea With ‘Weh Ya Gone’

Cocoa Tea looks to 'Build Back NY' with COVID-19 recovery song |  Entertainment | Jamaica StarMassive B, the label owned by New York-based radio disc jock and sound system selector Bobby Konders, has delivered two tracks for the holiday season.

They are Cocoa Tea’s Weh Ya Gone and Bend Down Low by Xyclone, Chedda Boss, and Kisko Hype.

On Weh Ya Gone, Konders recruits veteran Jamaican singer Cocoa Tea for this one-drop anthem that finds the vocalist searching for the dancehall days of old, before pandemic-era lockdowns gripped the world and impacted the music industry.

The song is featured on the No Curfew rhythm. The piano-driven skank and horn refrain, courtesy of musician ‘Madman’ Myrie, carry echoes of the now classic Things and Time rhythm that spawned Buju Banton and Beres Hammond’s 1999 party time anthem, Pull It Up.

This is the first collaboration between Konders and the legendary vocalist.

Bend Down Low – featuring Massive B cohorts Xyclone, Chedda Boss, and Kisko Hype ­ calls some of the raw elements of dancehall into play over a snare-driven beat.

Bend Down Low is another ladies anthem for the clubs. This can mix with everything, from dancehall to reggaeton, to soca, Afrobeats and hip hop,” said Konders.
