Bermudian singjay Magma is burning up the airwaves with a pair of new singles, Love Life and a remake of the Half Pint's classic Level Di Vibes, which features the reggae singer.

"The radio disc jockeys love the smooth feel of Love Life and I am getting a lot of love for Level Di Vibes remake. I am very proud of the Half Pint remake because he is one of my heroes in reggae music, and it was humbling to be in the studio with him to do over the song. The track came out well, and I leaked it to radio, and the streets, and given the overwhelming response, me and Half Pint are going to do a video in February," he said.

Magma said the song will be officially released mid-February via iTunes and other downloadable music platforms on his own Moltenrock Productions label.

"Everyone is telling me that the Level the Vibes song is a straight hit, and with its release in Reggae Month, we feel that it is going to be a monster hit by Summer, I am really looking forward to performing it live with him on a stage in the future," Magma, whose real name is Adam Mayo, said.

Last year, Magma scored well with a radio hit, a cover of Paul Simon's D iamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes. Magma himself co-produced the single with Kevon Brown and Donovan Joseph for his Moltenrock Productions.

The original song is part of Simon's acclaimed 1986 album, Graceland, which won three Grammy Awards in 1987, including Album Of The Year. Since settling in Jamaica over 10 years ago, Magma has released a number of songs for various producers. His sole album, The Mission, was released in 2015.

"I have been recording a number of songs, and doing a lot of writing with my friend Danny English, and I feel we have enough songs to release another album maybe later this year, right now, mi a level the vibes and put in the work," he said.
