St Ann label YGF Records have released a second set of songs on their latest project – the rhythm Bicycle Frame – in conjunction with Canadian label Platinum Records. The release coincided with the label’s artists’ first trip to Guyana, as well as CEO Tevin Richards, who took the opportunity to promote his label there.
The young producer has done over a dozen radio and TV interviews in Guyana, appearing on Boom FM Guyana, 98.1, 105, 592 Jamz and In the Streets TV, among other outlets.
The artists who made the trip, Negus, Jahvillani and Imagee, performed on October 30 on “Straight Out of Albouystown”, a show by Wickedee Media, in collaboration with Commander Community Initiative.
Negus remained in Guyana where he will perform on November 21 at the country’s national stadium with other groups including Popcaan.
The tour was spurred on by the success of the initial Bicycle beat release (September 4) which featured Negus and Jahvillani, alongside Shawn Storm, Devin Di Dakta and Teflon.
The release of a second group of artists sees Kalado, Zagga, Navino, Zamunda and up-and-coming artist from Toronto, Canada, Imagee, bring the number of artists on the beat to 10.
Richards is pleased with the direction in which things are moving for his company.
“The Bicycle Rhythm is doing well,” says Richards. “After eight weeks of consecutive airplay on Boston Hot 87 FM, Irie FM, Sun City, Boom FM in Guyana and others, we have decided to add another hit-related volume.
“So this is ‘Bicycle Frame Rhythm Volume Two’, and it features Kalado, Zagga, Navino, Zamunda and Imagee, from Canada.”
Richards sees marketing as one of his main goals as a producer and believes that with a project as big as this, with 10 artists, he will leave a footprint in dancehall and create a bridge for artists in the dancehall are recognized in Canada on a larger scale. Platform.?
Volume two sees Kalado, fresh off his Pepsi Refresh tour, contributing a track called Contract Winner, with Zagga (who recently completed their first European stint) doing, When You See Me.
Zamunda’s contribution sees him deliver soothing melodies on a track called One Big Road, even as he prepares to release his debut studio album – The Root – before the end of the year.
Navino arrives with Too Real or Too Soft, while Imagee talks about hustling the streets with his track, New Way Fi Mek Money.
