Markus Records is the label of Mark A. Myrie, eldest son of legendary reggae/dancehall superstar Buju Banton who is currently serving a ten year prison term in Texas after being caught up in a cocaine deal. Starting in the music industry at 13, Mark attended Wolmer’s Boys High School and Meadowbrook High School before taking up an engineering course at the Creative Production and Training Centre (CPTC). His debut mainstream compilation was the "Beating Stick" riddim followed by several hits including "Why Life Nuh Sweet" by Black Ryno, and "Mama Food Put On" by I-Octane. Other productions include several riddim sets like "Insecurity", "Re-entry", "Sex Mate", "Sick Bay", "Hot Spot" and "Rodeo Zone". He also released Bugle's 2014 album "Anointed". In 2013 he became dancehall producer of the year.

His latest effort is the "Syndicate" riddim, a synth driven uptempo dancehall riddim. It's one of the many riddims that is being released every month in Jamaica, not really outstanding nor noteworthy. The riddim is voiced by a few well known dancehall suspects and some unknown up and coming vocalists. D'East, Bryka and Jahazeil are promising Markus Records artists. Bryka aka Daniel Rose delivers a decent cut called "Fear Mi" on the riddim. Jahaziel's tune "We Lock Di Street" fails to make a solid impression. D'East performs a good lick of the riddim. Dancehall veteran Elephant Man has one of the best cuts of the selection with his tune "Hands Straight". Assassin aka Agent Sasco fires his deadly shot "Nuh Mix" straight to the heart of the dancehall, while I-Octane brings you a 'bloodclaat' tune called "Risk Dem A Run".
