WITH the summer in full swing, up-and-coming singer Mr Glamarus is hoping his latest effort will be among the song favourites.

His offering, Summer Swing, is a collaborative effort with dancehall artiste Flexxx.

"Summer Swing is a fun song. As the name suggests, it has the summer vibe and flavour that just makes you wanna dance," the singer told the Jamaica Observer. For him, it's a dancehall song with an international feel.

Produced by Jalove2U and Phantom Sounds Production, the single was officially released on July 30 and Mr Glamarus said he has been receiving encouraging feedback. The song has been added to the playlist of UK's

Working with Flexxx, Mr Glamarus said it was a great experience.

"We both vibe the rhythm, added our writing skills and melodies, and the rest is history," he said.

Born in Greenwich Farm and raised in Arnett Gardens, Mr Glamarus -- whose given name is Edward Higgins -- honed his skills hanging out at the city's studios during his teenage years.

Now in his 30s, the deejay got his break in 2007 with his album Feel It. In 2012, he released a lover's rock, dancehall-inspired set The Man: His Music.
