JAY KHULE Teams Up With RICHIE LOOPS for “PARTY SHOT” Single

Anguilla based dancehall recording artiste Jay Khule is kick starting the new year with the release of a hot new single entitled “Party Shot” alongside Big Yard recording artist Richie Loops.

The song which was recorded in August last year during a promotional visit by Khule to Jamaica is the first of several new records which is slated to hit the local airwaves in the coming days.

Born Jerome Reid in St. Mary Jamaica, Jay Khule has steadily been working on his craft, hitting the studios and working with producers like Adrian “Donsome” Hanson.

According to Khule “Party Shot” has been getting good reviews. “Well so far the song has been pre released in Auguilla, the U.K and a few other countries in Europe and the response has been positive so the plan now is to build a momentum in Jamaica  and maybe later this year shoot a video for the track”.

Voicemail received great feedback from underground blogs as well as from mass media for their latest release. Popular blogs associated the song to the style of Sean Kingston and described it as “Summer Smash!”. The german radio station BigFM added the song to it’s rotation in January after airing an Interview with the group. Voicemail also did an exclusive dubplate recoding for the morning show of the station. Kevin and Craig are especially happy about reaching their international target group through the channel.

EUROPE’S PLATINUM AND AWARD-WINNING ARTIST GENTLEMAN SET TO RELEASE DIVERSITY ON FEB 14 2012 IN THE US

With six albums under his belt and over one million collectively sold in Europe, the German platinum and award-winning singer Gentleman is long overdue for his U.S. debut. Diversity, set for release on February 14, 2012 with VP Records, charted at #1 in Germany as well as #2 in Switzerland and Austria and is the follow-up to his Europe platinum-selling record Confidence.

Gentleman is currently touring Europe and plans to embark on the second leg of the Diversity world tour throughout the U.S. and South America beginning in March 2012. The series of shows include a west coast run supporting SOJA and his debut NYC showcase. Dates and venues to be announced.

On Diversity, Gentleman stays true to his first musical love – roots reggae – and teams up with top Jamaican recording artists, including reggae lyricist and singer Tanya Stephens, the late Studio One veteran and dancehall pioneer Sugar Minott, Christopher Martin (Season Two winner of Jamaica’s televised talent competition, Rising Stars ) and producers Don Corelone, Red Roze, Shane Brown, Xterminator and Firehouse Crew.

With new vigor and passion, Gentleman feels renewed on this 14 track set and is ready to take the U.S. by storm. “That fire you feel as a newcomer does not keep up for very long. It is up to you to stoke the embers and this (album) has much more force behind it,” he notes.

One may not assume that the Cologne native and son of a Lutheran pastor would become an international reggae superstar, but Gentleman (born Tilmann Otto in 1975) has been drawn to reggae’s revolutionary spirit and truth-seeking lyrics ever since he was introduced to the island’s sounds. He immersed himself in the culture and music at the age of 18, making Jamaica his home away from home.

In 1997, he eventually got his first break with German hip-hip group, Freundeskreis, after delivering a verse on single “Tabula Rasa” with his distinctive singjay style. Since then, Gentleman has had a string of solo hits and platinum-selling records in Europe. He won Best National Artist five times for three different award shows (Echo Award 2003 & 2005, Comet Award 2005, 1Live Radio Award 2004 & 2005) and has been nominated twice for Best Reggae Artist (Martin 2004 Awards and Reggae and Soca Awards).  He has collaborated with artists ranging from pop superstars Pink and Destiny’s Child to reggae legends Michael Franti & Spearhead and Barrington Levy. After over a decade under the label Four Music, he moved to Universal in 2010 and will release Diversity in the U.S. with VP Records next year.

Singing Melody - Collide Promo

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Singing Melody – Collide
[starrater tpl=10]

With a career spanning more than 20 years, Jamaica’s acclaimed lovers rock singer Singing Melody will on September 14th reintroduce himself to fans in a big way with the premier of the first official single from his soon to be released album “They Call Me Mr. Melody”. Produced by Lynford “Fatta” Marshall the new single entitled “Collide” will lead the way for the highly anticipated 13 track album which the man best known for hits such as “Want You Back” and “Say What” has been working on since the start of the year.

According to Melody the song which was demoed two years ago was a perfect fit for the album and a wonderful gift to the fans who will buy it. Collide is an amazing song that tells a story of a couple who are in love but have problems communicating and that drives them apart but eventually they reunite. Two years ago Fatta came to me to do that song and I ended up doing a demo for it but never completing the project until recently. Initially I didn’t want to put a cover song on this album but I have some of the most loyal fans in the business who have stayed with me and supported me over the years and so I decided to give my them a gift in the form of a Free single thus Colliding or reuniting with my fans”.

A reoccurring choice amongst invited guest at a private Listening Session for the album held in August at the Mixing Lab Studios in Kingston Jamaica, “Collide” is a testimony to the new image and sound Melody has been developing with the help of his Management and Marketing team who are committed to making “They Call Me Mr. Melody” one of the best reggae albums of 2012. According to Ruby Robinson, President of Shem Music Productions “We are really happy with the product and so too are many industry veterans who have openly lauded the efforts of Melody on a job well done”. 

With plans to shoot a video for “Collide” already in the pipeline Singing Melody is now gearing up for a rigorous promotional campaign aimed at re-branding the singers image to include that of a younger audience while maintaining the sheer sophistication of a true pioneer.
