Teflon offers hope in new EP
Rastafarian reggae artiste Teflon is putting final touches to his upcoming EP called 'So Determine'. The nine-track project features production works from Yard A Love Records, DJ Wayne and ZJ Ice.
"The EP is a mixture of reggae and dancehall tracks. It will be very message-based, so the aim is to get it to the reggae and dancehall community. A lot of stuff is happening in our country that is not necessarily positive, so I am hoping it will be an inspiration to the youths," Teflon said.
The EP will have songs like Legacy, Change How I Feel, No Time Fi Gaze and On my Own.
"This is the first EP, and as
the name suggests, I am very determined, especially after what many would consider to be a very successful album. I have been in the music industry for over a decade right ... . This EP is to showcase my maturity over the years," he said.
Teflon lists No Time Fi Gaze as his favourite song on the EP that is being developed.
"The EP is just a great body of work that speaks volumes, but this track speaks to this generation, where I am imploring them to get more focus and stop playing around. I want them to be aware of their social responsibility and aspire to contribute to self, family and country," he said.
Teflon, whose given name is Shaniel Watson, emerged on the scene in 2003. He scored his first hit two years later with Gun Rise. His debut album, Motherless Child, was released in February 2009.
