Upcoming Producer Dakrome Scores Hits with Mainstream Acts

Published

on

Producer Darren “Dakrome” Levy has been building a reputable name for himself on the underground circuit since his inception in the music business. His unique productions, boasts an unconventional catchiness that has led the way to greatness.

The fast rising producer has been receiving praise a plenty for his impressive new hits “Squeeze” by Masicka and “40 Ball” by Tommy Lee. Released earlier this year, both songs have been extremely well received, gaining popularity on the local an international market.

The young prodigy is elated with the overall response that he has been getting from these two tracks. He says,

“People message me every day expressing their love for the rhythms and how the rhythms stand out and sound different. The songs are getting constant airplay in places like Europe, Africa and US and on the Latin market, so the feedback has been great.”

Success is imminent for Dakrome because he prides himself in being different and equally passionate about his music; his persistent nature also adds to the recipe for success.

“It is not the money that motivates me; it is a genuine love for what I do. This is what separates me from a lot of these so called producers; my passion is what drives me to produce good music for the world to hear.”

But the music business can be tough and it is great when you have musical influencers like Mr. Biggs of Platinum Camp Record to assist him on his journey.

“Biggs saw something special in me, which is why he decided to work with me. I want to give him a big shout out and a special thanks to everyone that helped along this road.”

Enjoying arguably the best year of his career, dancehall star Aidonia appears to be on a resolute path to conquer new terrains amid broadening his musical horizon.

Back from a three-week stint in Europe where he connected with new and existing fans while reaffirming his brand. The 4th Genna boss has now turned his attention to Africa, a growing market for Reggae and Dancehall that has the potential to eclipse Reggae-havens Europe and Japan in the foreseeable future.

With his sight firmly fixed on the Motherland, Aidonia late last week released a collaborative effort titled ‘My Queen’ featuring Ghanian superstar Shatta Wale. Recorded in New York City the Platinum Kids/Calli B produced single will be featured on their upcoming EP titled ‘Platinum Kids and Friends’ which is set for release later this year.

“In recent times I have been making a greater impact internationally especially in North America. I  just got back from Europe and the support was overwhelming. So now we are looking into other markets where we can expand brand Aidonia and Africa is nicely poised. They have been calling for some time now so we are finally answering that call. This collaboration with Shatta Wale is just the first of several major projects in the work for the rest of the quarter.” – Aidonia explained.

Christopher Martin & Friends Back To School Treat was truly a “Big deal”

Published

on

The Christopher Martin Foundation is proud to have presented a very successful  second staging  of our back to school treat and concert on Friday, September 1st, 2017. The Watermount family and surrounding communities truly enjoyed Christopher Martin’s Back to School Treat and Concert; the brain child and one of the core objectives of the Christopher Martin Foundation. It was indeed a BIG DEAL!!!

 

On the heels of a successful first staging in 2015, it was the vision of Christopher and the team to entertain and give back to his community through the form of back to school supplies (such as backpacks, books, pens, pencils, crayons, rulers etc), refreshments, rides, among other fun filled activities in a very comfortable environment. The event was staged at the WaterMount Primary School, St. Catherine and provided an entire day and evening of fun. Kids had access to a plethora of rides, attractions and treats including themed bounceabouts, merry-go-round, face painting, fun interactions with clowns and mascots as well as fun activities on stage (including musical chairs, deejay competition and dance competition) in which prizes were offered as well as balloon artistry and frozen novelties. Our little ones were well fed and abundantly refreshed all day. The gates opened at 10 am sharp and was preceded by a moving prayer by Mrs Maxine Martin (Christopher’s Mom) which was followed by a very fun filled, incident free 14 hour event.

 

The event garnered great support from corporate partners. We greatly appreciate KFC Jamaica, Wisynco, Reggae Jammin’, Starlight Productions, Bolt Express Tours, KingAlarm, RD Studios, Logo Stitch. Special thanks is extended to members of the church and community volunteers, as well as the teachers of WaterMount Primary, who ensured that the event was well catered for with food and hospitality as well as aiding with the setup, execution and breakdown.

 

After the treat, we kicked things into high gear with a live concert and musical showcase which started at 7 pm. The showcase featured a Community Segment, which featured talented acts from in and around the Watermount Community, which were met with much cheers pre and post performances. Sincere thanks can be extended to Christopher’s friends in music who performed many thrilling sets throughout the night; Sativa, Lia Caribe, Nikita Steer, Timeless Dancers, Slash, Javada, D-Major, Symatic, Devin Di Dakta, Bling Dawg, Bugle and Vershon. The live concert came to close just after midnight and the patrons staying until the very last song.

The Christopher Martin Foundation is truly grateful for the opportunity to give back in such a major way and looks forward to staging more editions of this treat and assisting the Watermount Community however best we can.
