Producer hails Chris Gayle

CAMAR Doyles, producer at Chris Gayle's nearly two-year-old Triple Century Records, says the former cricketer is poised to become a global star in the music arena.

"I was first introduced to Chris through a mutual friend and production partner at the time, DJ Kurt Riley—he's the one who made the connection. If I were to describe Chris Gayle as an artiste, I would say he's a natural, he's dedicated, punctual, willing to be guided and he always seem to challenge himself to get it right and always tries to outdo himself. He's an athlete and a businessman, so I'm guessing that's where he gets that discipline from, so he's very, very easy to work with," Doyles told the Jamaica Observer.

Their latest project, Don't Go, was released in June.

Doyles, a St George's College old boy, studied computer animation at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and Performing Arts and a music major at the Excelsior Community College in St Andrew.

He has spent quite a number of years in music production, working alongside Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Ghost, Lady Saw, Aidonia, Ding Dong, Teetimus, Voicemail, Elephant Man, and Brisko Lyrical.

According to him, collaborating with Gayle is like a dream.

In the meantime, the pair are also working on other projects for the remainder of this year.

"My career in the coming years is looking real bright and busy, and for that I'm thankful and very grateful, my song Choco Loco Remix with Chris Gayle is featured on the Billboard album series…There's so much happening since I've been working with Chris so the coming years not only looks bright, it looks big," he said.

Gayle, who played international cricket for the West Indies since 1999, has set numerous records across all three formats of the game. He is the most-capped player for the West Indies in international cricket and is the only player to score a triplet of centuries — a triple hundred in Tests, double hundred in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and a hundred in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).

He announced his retirement from international cricket in November 2021.
