Djoystik - "Je Vais Jamais Arrété de Chanté"

Ladies and gentleman I give you Djoystik - dancehall/ hip hop artist and producer. Djoystik comes from the streets of Fort de France, Martinique. He is an artist in the true sense of the word. He sings for the love. When I hear Djoystik sing I always think of a quote from Victor Hugo: "Music is what flows from the soul when words fail and yet one cannot remain silent." The track I'm sharing with you today is called "Je Vais Jamais Arrété de Chanté" translated: "I will never stop singing." Djoystik's songs may not be super refined (they are recorded in his bedroom) but his talent in undeniable. Right now, you can only hear his music here or in a parking lot above the industrial ports of Martinique. Do yourself a favor and follow him on Soundcloud, his future is bright. Now you might have noticed that I have already posted a few times on creole music. Here's why: in my opinion creole lends itself to music like no other language. It has a percussion-like quality with short sharp words that sync with beats like peas and carrots. Don't worry about the language barrier though, Djoystik's lyrical content is as deep as the Caribbean sea but its all about the vibe anyway.

Hi !

We are an ecletic french music blog and we noticed that you talk about a french artist ! Maybe there are errors in our message but we can tell you that the lyrics are really not as deep as the carribean sea !

They are actually really poor but it doesn't really matter because the music in the back is good. By the way the title without errors in French is : "Je ne vais jamais arrêter de chanter".

Continue like this you are a dope music blog, and one of our strongest sources.
Bye !

Just for you to know, when Shane write "Djoystik's lyrical content is as deep as the Caribbean sea" it doesn't mean it is rich, nor something lyrical or poetic, but that it is poor (as you said).

Speaking of the title, don't correct him, the title of the song is "Je Vais Jamais Arrété de Chanté" as the artist named it.

Donc les français, c'est sympa de poster des commentaires sur les sites étrangers mais on évite de corriger les bloggeurs quand on ne comprend pas les métaphores ou qu'on ne se renseigne pas sur la chanson avant, on évitera de faire passer notre pays pour un peuple fière et impertinent..

N’interprète pas ce que je dis, je ne fais que mettre en avant quelque
chose qui nous interpelle. Les clichés ont la vie dure et ce sont des
gens comme toi qui les entretiennent. Alors arrête avec ton air
condescendant. N'inverse pas les rôles, on aime Earmilk et si l'on n'a plus le droit de partager
en faisant une critique constructive c'est que tu n'as pas compris grand
chose à l'esprit de la blogosphère.

Il est vrai que mon ton était condescendant, sans pour autant que ma réponse le soit.
Les critiques constructives je les accepte et les encourages même (ma critique était d'ailleurs constructive), là n'est pas le problème. J'ai juste voulu vous faire remarquer vos erreurs.
Sur ce désolé pour mon ton condescendant, que mon commentaire vous ai choqué. Bonne soirée à vous !
