Supreme making strides since winning Usain Bolt’s talent contest.

Envied by every athlete in the world and adored by a strong legion of fans, Jamaican Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt makes no secret of his love for dancehall music. He ‘Sweeps’ the floor after every victory, ‘Gully Creeps’ to the podium and ‘Nuh Lingas’ for the cameras. The fastest man on the planet proudly celebrates one of his country’s biggest exports – reggae music – at every opportunity.

Born and raised in the closely knit countryside parish of Trelawny, Jamaica (Population 74 000), Usain Bolt has always paid homage to his community and his beloved Dancehall/Reggae music. In April 2009, a few months after achieving Olympic glory and cementing his place an international sensation, Usain brought his newly-found fame back home and held a talent contest. Thousands of hopefuls brought their best stage performances in hopes of being picked by Trelawny’s most famous resident as the winner.

At the end of the grueling judging, only one clear favorite stood out. The winner was a young hopeful, also born and raised in Trelawny, going by the name Supreme. Supreme (real name, Tyrel Mclean) had accomplished something so huge that it would have been enough of an achievement for others to cherish. However, this wasn’t so for Supreme as he wanted to take his talents to new heights.

Fast-forward three years later and a move to Toronto, Canada and you find Supreme as one of the hottest up-and-coming dancehall reggae artists worldwide. Now an artist on the Spreez Music Group label in Canada, Supreme has managed to:

It is safe to say that Usain Bolt would be proud of what his fellow countrymen is achieving today.

So much is being talked about the release of his debut album titled, Solid & Simple (Spreez Music Group/J-Nice Records). The star-studded, heavyweight project is slated to come out this September. However, due to public demand, it is being accompanied by two preliminary releases. To hold off the eager fans, Solid & Simple: The EP was released in May 2012 while Solid & Simple: The Mixtape will be released in June 2012.

Tygon, editor of the leading Toronto dancehall-reggae publication http://www.torontodeejays.com reviewed Solid & Simple: The EP and the following is an excerpt from the review:

“With this release, Supreme (real name Tyrel Mclean) has established himself as more than just a dancehall music star. He has managed the rare feat of instantly catering to and appealing to dancehall-reggae, hip hop, pop and R&B fans and all on one project. Solid & Simple: The EP is a classic collection of tunes with a variety of styles. The EP boasts female-oriented hits such as “I Know What You Need” and “Hardcore” alongside motivational and inspiring classics such as “Ghetto Anthem” and “This Is For The World.”

Canadian based artiste making a ‘Supreme’ rise in Dancehall circles

2011 saw a slew of new aspiring dancehall reggae artists clamoring to voice (record) on the same repetitive riddims.  Multiple artists with songs on one riddim (instrumental) are a trademark of Dancehall music.  Call it ‘supreme wisdom’ but watching all this from a distance in his adopted home of Toronto, Canada, was Supreme, the golden-voiced Trelawny, Jamaica-born deejay.  Arguably one of the hottest new dancehall artists to come out in a while, Supreme approached his rise in the ranks in a completely new and ground-breaking way.

When the talented 24 year old migrated to Canada in 2009 he knew that he was drastically cutting his chances of ‘blowing’ up in Jamaica as a Dancehall artist. However, being the confident natural star that he is, Supreme embraced that challenge.  What Supreme did next is what sets him apart today from the rest of this field.  Knowing that he would not easily be considered to voice on new riddims by the top music producers in Jamaica, Supreme sought out his own path in Canada.

First he successfully signed with the hottest independent record label in Toronto – Spreez Music Group/J-Nice Records.  Now with 24/7 access to a studio he pulled together a team of producers to turn their experiences in producing different genres of music into making him hot original Dancehall Riddims.  In the hugely multicultural megacity of Toronto, Supreme’s producers include a Persian, an African, an Asian and of course Jamaican-Canadians.  What that unique mix of international talent has brought to his sound is absolutely amazing! *see – his debut album*

Always a professional, Supreme’s versatility as an artist is always on display on every song he is on. His vocal arrangements, unique flow and clever lyrics are complemented successfully by the out-of-the-box dancehall riddims his producers create.  With Supreme always delivering a hot lead song  for them, some of the successful Riddims include the standout Anthem Riddim (featuring Alliance artist, Calado), the DTF Riddim (featuring Natalie Storm – Ward 21) and the Chiffon Riddim (featuring Jah Vinci, Charly Black and more).

Supreme is considered a unique force in Canadian dancehall for his hot crossover collaborations with some of the best hip hop and RnB talent out.  His tracks Hardcore featuring singer TROY BLACK, I Know How featuring the sulty-voiced R&B singer, Akua, Tdot Anthem 2012 featuring the hottest up-and-coming Toronto rapper, Fame, as well as Stab Her featuring Gyssa, are all making their way to Top 40 radio stations worldwide.

All the above-mentioned tracks and a whole lot more will be featured on the highly anticipated Solid & Simple: The Album due out May 2012.  Follow the journey Supreme took to make the album on the official blog: http://www.supremedancehall.blogspot.com
