Jamlink Recording breaking ground with established, new acts


The one-year-old entity, Jamlink Recording & Productions, is on a mission to break new acts into the marketplace by teaming them with established acts.

Based at Whitehall Avenue in Kingston, the entity is ready to roll out its most ambitious project to date, the Beach House rhythm.

The project features the songs Its Been A While by Gyptian; Bless And Protect by Bascom X; Say Dem Ready by Mr IIZ; Special by Caracta; Hold Me In Your Arms by Indecka and I Want Your Touch by Tracey Moet.

Desmond Ferguson, Marie Spence Coley and Davaska Ferguson are the principals behind the fledgling entity.

In a release to the media, Ferguson explained the entity's goals and objectives.

"We want to provide a viable means for new and up-and-coming artistes fused with established acts, with transparency and fair play," he noted.

Two acts are signed to the label, namely Boswell 'Mr IIZ' Johnson and Tafahee 'Caracta' Campbell. Additionally, the label has been working with acts such as Big Pop formerly of the Magnum King of the Dancehall competition; Inkline; Di Grate One; Memzay; Ill Gramma; R Vee; M Jay; Tracey Moet and former Digicel Rising Stars competitor Beres Brown.

Ferguson added that getting the established acts on board the Beach House project wasn't a difficult task. He reinforced the point that his association with the artistes and the interest that they (the artistes) had in the project were the contributing factors.

Ferguson, who is described as a hard-working and people-driven person with the passion for music, believes that a lot of talent exist locally, but the exposure is lacking.

He sees himself as the person to help harness these talents and to open up channels for exposure both locally and internationally.

Following the release of the Beach House rhythm, the label is looking to promote the D Lee, Thumb Drive and Ackee Leaf rhythm projects.
