Rolexx ventures into Production


Popular dancehall selector, Rolexx, has promised more for 2014. Rolexx, known as one of the baddest and best sound-system selectors, especially for his high-energy selecting, is on overseas gigs in and around New York and the Tri-State area. As usual, he has been getting tremendous feedback from his international fans.

"The response has been more than overwhelming, not that I'm not use to this response, but it feels new every time I am in front of different patrons over the world," he said.

The selector returned home to start working on his record label, as he has decided to venture into the world of production. He said his reason for going into production is because he has seen a lot of young artistes with great talent not given the opportunity he believes they deserve.

I want to make a difference

"A nuff young youth mi see a come up inna the business and have the talent, but nuff of them get pushed aside. I want to change that. Youths like Devious, Tajji, Fame Style, Young Marky, I want to make a difference," he said.

"It's not that I'm giving up selecting, but there are too many laptops in dancehall these days, as if it is an Internet café. I was born to do this so I can go in any area of music and become successful."

Rolexx has plans of doing some work with long-time friends Konshens, Darrio, Delus, Tamaly and Javada, as he has been welcomed as a part of the Subkonshus family.

"Mi and Konshens go way back. Man and man have dem ways, but we neva had a bad day, no bad vibes and it is not even like a friend ting, it's more like a brother thing, so the friendship isn't new," he said.

Even though he is close with the Subkonsus team, Rolexx gives respect to Vybz Kartel and Beenie Man, who played major roles in the success of his career.

"Big respect to every artiste in the business, to Vybz Kartel who first send me to the world, big respect to Beenie Man, who played a major role in my career too," he added.

The sky is the limit for dancehall's baddest selector, so look out for more from him for the new year.
