Not what I think the people want to hear, but what DARRIO feels and sees.”

Equiknoxx Music experiments with the ‘VT Sound’ in new series

Many times music reflects the true personality of an artiste on and off-stage. However, Equiknoxx Music seeks to prove with their newest project that music can reveal the persona of a community.

On November 13, Equiknoxx Music launched their newest project dubbed V-Town Sound – The Thesis, an ode to the label’s base of Vineyard Town in Kingston. This sizzling project is the first of a three part series, determined to give some of Dancehall and Reggae music’s emerging acts a big push within the industry while honoring the heart of this inner city community.

V-Town Sound – The Thesis outlines parallels between the passion and hunger that the artistes on this compilation possess and the drive possessed by Vineyard Town residents. Produced by Equiknoxx’s Gavin Blair, the compilation features a sample size of five tracks that will leave fans wanting more

One such single on V Town Sound that possesses these elements is Calling by Subkonshus Music artiste, Darrio. The single features the sensual voice of a woman yearning for the presence of the man she loves as her man hustles the streets to try and make ends meet. The beat offers a fitting backdrop to the ongoing storyline as Darrio proves his worth as a prominent upstart within Jamaican music.

Fellow up-and-comer, Masicka once again proves his worth as a must-see entertainer, showcasing his range as he collaborates with Equiknoxx singer, Shanique Marie on In the Morning. The Guh Haad and Done singer is in a pensive mood throughout this track as he weighs his options as the sun rises as he ponders his next move while seeking to escape the struggles of ghetto life.

Another Equiknoxx talent, Kemikal features on V Town – The Thesis with his uniquely conceptualized track, Gobbledygook. The track features emerging singer and labelmate, Akeema showing off her British accent as Kemikal strikes fear into the minds of his oppressors as he lyrically intimidates foes with a display of clever wordplay and strong illustration.

A pair of Equiknoxx protégés makes their presences felt on the first installment of V-Town Sound as deep-thinking Reggae singer, Kabaka Pyramid and thought-provoking composer, Bobby the Blackbird join forces on Should I. The duo pays homage to the classic track penned by Reggae legend, Dennis Brown with a cover doing him justice, while adding their own touch of edge.

V-Town Sound – The Series is available for purchase on junodownloads.com: http://www.junodownload.com/products/equiknoxx-music-presents-v-town-sou…

It will also be available for purchase on iTunes and is just a taste of what this EP has to offer going forward, including the sound of late Reggae singer and Vineyard Town’s own, J.O.E.

V-Town Sound – The Series is surely a worthy listen.
