Jamlink looks to the Beach
Catch Di Riddim
THE Whitehall Avenue community in St Andrew has produced its share of dancehall stars, Grammy Award winner Buju Banton the best known.
Jamlink Recordings and Productions, which is based there, is on a mission to break new acts.
The label's latest production is the Beach House 'riddim' which is driven by songs from Gyptian (It's Been a While); Bless and Protect by Bascom X; Say Dem Ready from Mr IIZ and Special by Caracta.
Desmond Ferguson, Marie Spence Coley and Davaska Ferguson are the fledgling company's principals.
"We want to provide a viable means for new and upcoming artistes fused with established acts, with transparency and fair play," Ferguson pointed out in a recent interview.
The label is working closely with two newcomers, Boswell 'Mr IIZ' Johnson and Tafahee 'Caracta' Campbell as well as Big Pop who competed in the Magnum King and Queen of the Dancehall competition and Beres Brown, who appeared in the Digicel Rising Stars contest.
Jamlink's upcoming releases include the D Lee, Thumb Drive and Ackee Leaf 'riddims'.
