Big year for DeeWunn
Jamaican-born MC DeeWunn's single Back It Up, Drop It, which was released in March, has received major placement as it was used by Samsung, Fanta Pop and gaming giant EA's Need For Speed: Heat production.
The record garnered the attention of various mainstream platforms including KCRW's Top Tune Podcast, while landing regular rotation on England's BBC radio.
"I am thankful for the direction my career is headed in. After my Canadian tour ended earlier this year, I took a needed break from the public eye including social platforms, interviews, and stayed busy recording and preparing for a major release fin 2020," said DeeWunn.
In late 2018, the artiste signed with indie-label Waxploitation, and he has since been in the studio working on his EP, which is expected to be released early next year.
The EP will have six songs and will be a follow-up to his Bunx Up album.
"Expect to hear a new sound crossed with the familiarity of what you know of DeeWunn so far. I aim for riddims that you can beat at the gym, in the clubs or in your car. My music sees no boundaries or genre - but I represent for dancehall," he said.
