CHRISTOS and DON CARLOS
Speak The Fire, lead single from the new album by American singer Christos DC, will be released tomorrow by Honest Music.
Co-produced by Christos DC, Darryl Burke and Bebo Phillips, the song is done with Bulgarian reggae artiste Zafayah and The Skankin Monks, who are from The Netherlands.
Tessera, Christos DC’s fourth album, is scheduled for release in June. The title acknowledges his Greek heritage.
"Tessera means four in Greek and also happens to be my fourth full length album release. The number four also resonates with the vibrations and energies of practicality and patience. Building solid foundations through discipline and hard work. Something I strive for in every aspect of life," Christos DC explained.
A native of Washington DC, he is a principal of Honest Music, located in his hometown. Christos DC has toured as a guitarist and vocalist for Don Carlos and The Itals.
Singer Kevin Isaacs returns with two songs: True Love Story and Slim And Fat. The former was released in January and the latter one month earlier.
According to Isaacs, True Love Story "is a song that speak about relationships" and is "done on a smooth reggae beat."
The son of reggae great Gregory Isaacs, he made his recording debut in 1993 as a 13-year-old with I Thought We Were Friends. It was produced by his father.
Since then, Isaacs has recorded for producers in Brazil and United Kingdom as well as for his Kevin Isaacs Music label.
The veteran singer, who made his name in the United Kingdom, takes on a troubling issue with Child Abuser which he co-produced with Winston ‘Niney’ Holness.
"A song like this is needed, not just for Jamaica but the world. It’s overdue," said King Sounds.
Child Abuser features the respected Roots Radics rhythm team of Flabba Holt on bass and drummer Style Scott.
King Sounds said it marks his return to music in Jamaica after 53 years living in the UK.
He had several songs that charted in the UK during the late 1970s and 1980s including Black And White and Book of Rules. His Grove Music company also distributed and marketed albums such as Judy Mowatt’s Black Woman.
