Dwayno goes old school
Dancehall artiste Dwayno has started the New Year on a different note by switching his style of music.
Known to toast his hardcore lyrics over contemporary dancehall instrumentals, the artiste has decided to release several of his new projects using vintage reggae beats.
Some of the rhythms used by Dwayno for the projects include the Golden Hen rhythm popularised by Buju Banton, Real Rock rhythm used by Sanchez and the King Jammys-produced Magic Moment rhythm.
"I'm just trying to start the New Year differently from the other artistes. I felt like going old school, so I just went in the studio and began to freestyle on the rhythms that the engineer gave me. Mi really feel di vibe and this is some authentic stuff," he said.
Dwayno rose to fame with the song Don A Road, which was a tribute to the incarcerated Vybz Kartel, and has since released numerous songs, leading to bookings locally and overseas.
The artiste is yet to find another song with similar success as Don A Road, but believes 2016 will be a productive year.
"My fans can expect a lot of good songs from me in 2016, as I will surely entertain them like I usually do.Thus far I've been contacted to perform in some countries where I've never been, and I'm truly looking forward to that. I am always promoting through social media and cane be found at @iamdwayno on IG and iamdwayno on Facebook," he told The STAR.
