Oriel to release 'Rise of the Revoluters' mix tape


Afar Music Group recording artiste Oriel is destined to be a force to be reckoned with in reggae music.

The Dominican native has been receiving a lot of props for his unique style of music. He has won the hearts of music lovers in numerous places including Europe, the USA, his homeland of Dominica, and several other Caribbean countries.

"The response to my music has been very positive overall. My style is unique because I'm trying to bring a new sound to the table. It's a mix of old-school reggae with new sounds and textures accompanied by positive, uplifting lyrics. It's what I call Revoluters music," said Oriel.

Since the start of the year, Oriel has treated his fans to two new singles, Give Me a Reason featuring Richie Stephens, and Sticks and Stones. Both singles have helped to widen his fan base both locally and abroad.

"These songs have helped to increase my fan base. I've got a lot of buzz on my social media pages because of Give Me a Reason. the European fans love this song a lot. Sticks and Stones has also done well. it has received a lot of support from sound-system selectors and DJs in Jamaica. it's a more hardcore type of song for the streets."

Oriel has also been very busy performing in the US, where he is based.

"I've done a number of shows since the beginning of the year with my band, the Revolouters. We've been mostly performing in the US, but I'm looking forward to performing outside of the US very soon. I want to perform in places like Jamaica, Europe, and Africa. I will go just about anywhere the music takes me."

Looking to build on the momentum he is currently enjoying, Oriel and his team at Afar Music Group are getting ready to release a brand new mix tape titled Rise of the Revoluters. The mix tape will feature several of his older songs as well as new material. It will also feature poems and quotes from a number of revolutionary icons, including Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, and Malcolm X.

"I'm very excited about the mix tape. anyone who loves good music is going to love it. We're putting a lot of work into it because we want it to be something the fans will appreciate and cherish," said Oriel.

Rise of the Revoluters will be released and available for free download before the end of July at https://soundcloud.com/afarmusicgroup and http://www.afarmusicgroup.com/.
