HE'LL be the first to tell you that he has not been off the music scene, but has been working in the studios.

Deejay Shane O (Rushain McDonald) is upbeat about the response to his two latest singles.

"We have two tracks doing things in the streets at this time. She Goes Up featuring Vybz Kartel on the Igloo riddim by producer Elvis for the So Unique label, as well as Walk Out for Andre Blacks on the UIM label. A video is coming soon for Walk Out," the 25-year-old artiste told the Jamaica Observer.

Shane O plans to use these tracks to raise his public profile.

"Things looking bright for me right now. I had a song on the radio since I was 13 years old, so I have a few years experience which will help me to understand the business. Over the years, the greatest thing I have learned is to know who is your true friend in the music business."

While still attending Kingston Technical High School, Shane O recorded the hit single Lightning Flash in 2006 on the Applause Riddim, after being discovered by producer Rohan 'Sno Cone' Fuller.

Shane O has also used his experience to build a stable of acts for whom he is writing, producing and recording.

"There are four artistes -- Gifted, Extend, Approach and Doh Play -- who I train and teach to fulfil the mission and now they are ready to take to the road," he said.
