Sekkle The Vibes , singer Dahvid Slur's nod to dancehall culture, is number two on the iTunes Reggae Chart in Norway. Produced by Switzerland's Addis Records, the song was released last year.

Dahvid Slur, who is from Trench Town, told the Jamaica Observer that he wanted to project an authentic sound system/dance scene with Sekkle The Vibes — that includes everything from patrons enjoying themselves to police 'invading' the dance.

Though Norway is one of the smallest Scandinavian music markets, he said making the iTunes table there could mean some bigger things for Sekkle The Vibes and his career in that part of the world.

“We are currently working on the visuals for the song, so fans can get a closer look at the message being carried across and a chance to see who Dahvid Slur is,” he added.

Addis Records is based in Geneva, Switzerland. The independent label has worked with several Jamaican roots-reggae acts including Micah Shamaiah and Meleku, Sizzla's son.

Sekkle The Vibes will be part of Dahvid Slur's second EP, New Age Rockers, scheduled for release this year. That project will be largely produced by Iffa Cush Muzik Group, a company from Trench Town.

In 2017 GK Productions released The Ingress, his first EP, which includes songs such as Tick of The Clock.

Dahvid Slur's (given name David Dockery) recording career started two years ago with a handful of songs that included No Body Bag and Sound It, produced by GK Productions.

Faith Strong, a collaboration with American singer Princess Kazayah, is the expected follow-up to Sekkle The Vibes.
