Carlton 'Dj Krush' Marchall was influenced by his older brother who played on a sound system and by many of the soundmen who were always in close proximity. Soon he formed his own sound, Essence Sound, together with his friends Tarik Munroe, Richard Pusey and Supa Hype. Years later he decided to venture into music production.
Armed with a solid background in IT and a comprehensive knowledge of Pro Tools, Nuendo, Acid, Sound Forge and Wave Lab, he has since his first music production, 'The Derun' riddim, gone on to produce the 'Tropical Flava', 'Chiney Flava' and 'Get Wet' riddims. He also has production credits on Delly Ranx’s 'Good Profile' album.
His latest effort, the 'Get Wet' riddim, is a slick and sensual production voiced by several in demand artists on the island. Christopher Martin is a singer/songwriter from St. Catherine, Jamaica who won Digicel Rising Stars in 2005 (the Jamaican version of "American Idol") and is best known for the songs "Take My Wings", "Giving It" and "I'll Be Your Driver". With his appealing vocal delivery he rides the riddim in perfect style. Chico comes on strong with his tune Company.
Geoffrey Star, formally known as Rich Kid, started to show his talent at the age of thirteen doing school concerts and private functions. During his career he has worked with popular reggae artiste like Bunny Wailer, Marcia Griffiths, Mikey Spice, Burning Spear, Glen Washington and Bunny Ruggs to name a few. With his sweet voice he delivers a fine lover tune called Best Friends Girl. Stephanie's outing Am Waiting is a less convincing effort, while Anthony B's vocal style isn't suited for lovers tunes. RDX's tune Put It On You adds a little dancehall spice to the riddim and that works very nice. The same goes for Capital D's tune Yo Te Amo. Reggae Violin by Kingsley Depass must be the weirdest tune we've heard for years... check it out!
