(Kingston, Jamaica) – It almost seems like a gross understatement to say, ‘Reggae/Dancehall artiste Chino has been hard at work’. This is so because the singjay has released more than seven impressive songs over the past few weeks and has no intention of slowing down.
Among Chino’s new releases which have already started to heat up radio-land, are Before Dem Gone produced by Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor on the Big Ship label; No Gyal on the Catalogue Riddim also produced by Di Genius on the Big Ship label; Sound Execution on the Stagalag Riddim, produced by Shane Brown on the Jukeboxx label;Gyalist Fi Real on the Ward 21 label; Haffi Get A Girl on the Premium Riddim on Demarco’s Starkutt Records; Money Round also featuring Di Genius and Ricky Blaze on ZJ Chrome’s CR203 Mad Collab Riddim. In addition to that, another recent single, Badmind, which was also released for sale on iTunes has been receiving steady sales. The single, which is a part of the compilation Di Genius, called Labwork Vol. 2. The single will also be released on Chino’s Never Change slated for release in the Japanese market in July.
Regarding his continuously growing catalogue of songs, Chino, whose correct name is Daniel McGregor says, “Music is something that I love but it’s also a craft that I respect. I always try to look at my surroundings and give my own spin on it, whether it’s a party setting that would inspire a song like Money Round or a song like Before Dem Gone which was as a result of everything going on in the country now. Basically once I observe something and get a vibe, I get in the studio and sing what I think and feel.”
Additionally, Chino will be working his way across the island this weekend at a number of shows which include, Islingston High School’s Barbeque tonight (Friday); the highly anticipated Western Consciousness concert tomorrow night followed by a performance in St. Elizabeth on Sunday night.
