Dancehall star General Degree is making a major return with his new EP 'Bambalam', now available worldwide from all major digital retailers.

The deejay, born Cardiff Butt in Manchester, blasted on to the music scene more than 20 years ago and has remained on the airwaves and playlists for two decades. Consistently touring and keeping his brand relevant with fans, a rare accomplishment in the dancehall genre, this timeless artiste has returned with a collection of new hits, and the world is taking notice.

Bambalam debuted on the iTunes Canada Reggae Top Albums chart at No.10, on the iTunes US Reggae Top Albums chart at No. 23, and on the iTunes UK Reggae Top Albums chart No. 39.

Its lead track Bambalam peaked at No. 57 on the iTunes US Reggae Top Songs chart.

"I am very happy to know that my EP is getting such a great reception on the international market," General Degree stated in a release sent to THE WEEKEND STAR. "I've been focusing 100 per cent on my career and, to be getting such good results, it's a wonderful feeling!"


General Degree first gained international fame with his dancehall hits Traffic Blocking, Granny and Boom Boom, which, among other hits, still enjoy airplay and club play worldwide. He now adds another blockbuster to his catalogue with Bambalam, as the title track on the 2014 Zumba Mega Mix 41, the official CD of the dance fitness craze.

The uptempo, high-energy tune has been serviced to all official Zumba instructors and is currently being enjoyed by Zumba aficionados globally. "I want music fans to enjoy my new collection of works as it is some of my best," he adds.
