Dancehall Eton ‘Calado’ Gordon is keen on making a mark for himself this year. The artist who has been a member of Bounty Killer’s ANG camp since last year summer has seen growth in his career since being apart of the group and he feels that it is only a matter of time before gets the break that he is looking for. The artist was also the Jamaica Star nominee for ‘Upcoming artist of the Year 2011‘ and has been performing across the island on a regular note since his induction in the ANG camp.
“Since being apart of ANG i have been getting more recognition by fans and people in the music business, i have also gotten the opportunity to perform more regularly at stage shows across the island and a few major ones. My songs are being played more regularly on the radio, selectors and disc jocs and giving my music more plays in the parties and dances and people are taking my career more serious, so its a good look overall”
Songs such as Carry On, Provide, Nuh Gal cyaa Tear Mi have been getting regular rotation on radio and in parties for 2011 and he wants to capitalize on this by working even smarter for 2012.
Since the start of 2012 Calado has hit the ground running and has already recorded and released 3 tracks showing different sides to his versatility. A track titled ‘Life On A Whole’, produced by Payday Music Group (Bad Into Riddim) where the artist expounds on the rough times that people go through in life, on a whole.
Another track titled “Calado Lyrical” on Payday Music Group’s lyrical Overdrive Riddim sees the artist spitting some unusual rhymes and flows that is definitely a ‘Next Generation’ flow and style, but, it may be the song titled ‘Sex Mi Mind Deh’, produced by Cash Flow Records that seems to be creating quite a stir. An underground video has been done for the song and seems to be doing well as it has racked up over 8,000 views in 5 days and the artist is in the process of recording a radio edited version of the song based on the love it has been getting from fans worldwide.

Calado who is no stranger to having number one videos such as ‘Sad Streets’ & ‘Badmind’ on local television channels will now be focusing on promoting his latest video ‘Provide’ and his tracks. He has distributed over 5,000 CDs in the last year and aims to go even harder this year. It is definitely expected that Calado will create an positive impact in dancehall worldwide, he limits himself to no one genre as he believes music is much bigger than one genus, but, embraces dancehall as his roots.
“I am a dancehall artist, but, my music transcends all boundaries, I listen to all types of music and fuse what i think is best. creativity is what i am full of so i can listen to anything and do it in my own style and flavor. I must give thanks to Bounty Killer first for giving me this opportunity a my General dat, big up Cross Cris cause a real yute dat, he is the one who really took me to Bounty Killer.
