On September 25, 1992, a remarkable artiste was born and the Shaw family knew that history would be made through the voice of this child. Ronique Shaw, popularly known as “Revla” was raised in the quaint community of Westchester, Portmore. Here, through the influence of his uncle, Byron Campbell, a well favored neighbourhood DJ, familiarly known as “Bengo”, a passion for music manifested in Revla and he decided to pursue his dreams in the music industry.
Revla is a former member of the Deva Brat group, Krucial Konflick and was featured in the group’s collaboration “Rush Out” in 2011. [https://www.youtube.com/
Fortunately, Revla’s talent did not die with Krucial Konflick and his name would not prove to be evanescent as, in 2012, he attracted the attention of Demonie “Squidell” Wilson and the Miller 9 production “Start It” was released on the MP40 riddim.
“Start It” gave rise to the creation of a multiplicity of records such as:
Zj Brucelee’s “Kickdem” (Unruly Badness Riddim) [https://www.youtube.com/
“Dem a Plan” (Inferno Riddim)
Collegeboiz’s production “Poor Life” (Starting Block Riddim). [https://www.youtube.com/
Additionally, monumental songs such as “Nice Like Jamaica” [https://www.youtube.com/
Recently, Revla has been gracing audiences with his endearing aura, unique sound and modulated voice at stage shows across the island. He has remained unremitting, performing onstage alongside Dancehall’s formidable giants such as Popcaan, Sizzla and Aidonia. In keeping with his prolificacy, Revla is currently in the studio working on tracks for Dinearo UIM, Sj Firewayne, Miller 9, and household producer, Newday Records, and has created quite a venerable reputation for himself in the industry and in the perceptions of Jamaicans.
