FOR Teflon, 2014 will see a new game plan, one aimed at improving his music and live performance.

Leading this thrust is a new management team which includes Nathaniel Palmer and Yard a Love Productions.

"A good team helps an artiste to see what he/she cannot. They help their client to be more grounded and such is the case with me," Teflon told Splash. "One of my biggest regrets of last year was the lengthy time I took to rid myself of some team members."

According to the St Mary-born singjay, his live act is critical to success.

"It will be more energy; a lot more fiery. I have learned to block out things too, so even if while performing a patron in the crowd seh something negative I will continue my set and not let it break my spirit," said Teflon, whose last show was at Rebel Salute early this month.

He is currently working on an album titled Different Dimensions, which is being produced by House Music. He also spoke about that 13-track set.

"The aim is to make authentic music and I will not limit it to Jamaica, therefore, I will not be sticking to one genre. I am stepping out of the box."

Teflon (real name Shaniel Watson) emerged on the scene in 2003. He scored his first hit two years later with Gun Rise.

His debut album, Motherless Child, was released in February 2009.
