A 'Mineral' summerMonday, June 21, 2021
EXACTLY one year ago Mineral Boss Records (MBR) released its last project, the Lottery Winner rhythm. The label, owned and operated by events promoter Tawanna Jones, is now in production mode and gearing up to release projects before the end of the summer.
“I have been busy working in the studio on a major project. I can't reveal names right now, neither can I offer much information. But, I can say that once it is released it will be something worth waiting for,” said Jones.
Jones is a Grammy-nominated producer. She is credited for the track Progress by Mavado which was featured on DJ Khaled's Grammy-nominated, Billboard-chart topping and platinum-selling album Major Key.
“I enjoy music. Dancehall is my life and I love to see people enjoy themselves and embracing the music which creates joy. It's a good feeling when music takes you away from everything going on in your life. Seeing people escape and be in that joyful environment that music takes them is really humbling,” Jones explained.
Hailing from Kingston, Jones currently resides in Florida. She has earned a reputation as a savvy events promoter.
Last month, she successfully promoted the Purity All White Weekend which saw events being held on May 21 and 23 in West Palm Beach. The events saw high-spirited performances by Shaneil Muir and Dexta Daps.
“I have been doing events for years but it was the first time that I was doing back-to-back events. The highlight of the weekend for me was the ambience of the venue and the performances by the artistes with a band,” said Jones.
With the entertainment sector in Florida and other parts of the United States gradually making a slow return to normality, Jones ensured that safety protocols were in place to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus.
“I made sure that we had stations for sanitising, and the wearing of masks was mandatory. I also had security in place to ensure that persons followed the protocols. The safety of my patrons and my team is always of high priority,” Jones shared.
