At just twenty five years Anarchie might be considered just one of the many young youths with musical aspirations, but, this young man has already distinguished himself as one of the future rising stars in the dancehall arena.
Born Julius Wilson, Anarchie grew up in Barbican city, the only child for
his mother. He attended the Mona Primary School and later earned a place at the renowned Jamaica College High School for Boys. It was during his tenure at J.C. that Julius began to recognize his talent at music. He saw hat he could memorize the lyrics of the popular songs and perform them well.
Accompanied by his friend Thriston Miller, Anarchie would perform the reigning hit dancehall songs on the school bus to and from school. Encouraged by the positive responses of his school bus audience, Anarchie felt positive his talent and future lied in his voice. Following a one-year stint at the West Avenue Institute in 2004, Anarchie officially left school and began his musical journey.
There-in followed a one-year period, which he philosophically refers to as his “trodding of the earth”.
He didn’t see himself working a 9-5 job but sought a way to pay his dues by visiting various studios in the corporate area searching for a base to launch his career. Though not given the opportunity to record, he however gained invaluable contacts in the music industry and gained the attention of Alliance member Bounty Killer, who recognized his potential and invited him into the membership of the influential Alliance Group. This fortuitous partnership has been the driving force in his budding career.
Crediting veteran DJ and founding member Bounty Killer as being a major source of inspiration, Anarchie dubs Bounty as being his musical “fadda”. Bounty Killer introduced him to a program called “Diagio Learning For Life” and sent him to Edna Manley. During this time, he started working on his own studio called “Active One Productions” and wrote a song for Bounty Killer called “War Bridge”.
Filled with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the music business, Bounty provided invaluable advice to his young protégée and helped him to perfect his stage performance and to maximize his stage presence. Surrounded by the crème de la crème in the dancehall fraternity, Anarchy has been able to learn from the best, while developing his own unique niche that will set him apart from the pack.
Categorizing his lyrical style as being hard-hitting dancehall, with emphasis on everyday thematic concerns, Anarchy aspires to produce songs with fan appeal and staying power. Anarchy voiced his first single “Ghetto Nice But It No Pretty” produced by Superhype on the Mocking Bird Rhythm in 2004, encouraged by moderate air play he forged on, and has released several singles locally, encompassing a wide range of topics from the everyday reality of “ghetto nice but it no pretty”, to the inspirational “They can’t stop us” and favorites of the ladies, “loyal to Mi” and “New Girl”.
In 2006 he released his most successful single thus far, “Just Gi Mi Weed” which is getting good airplay, and earning him a loyal fan base. His first video release, a medley, featuring his popular song “Just Gi Mi Weed” and “Mean”, is getting good rotation on the popular cable stations Hype T.V. and R.E. T.V. and is taking his voice and talent to a bigger audience gaining him a strong fan base.
Anarchie’s stage performances include Saddle to the East in 2006, Fully Loaded in 2008 and Heart Of Guinness in 2010. He was soon introduced to Hapilos and started performing at Happy Thursdays and Chi-Ching, Ching’s Birthday Party. He also performed at the Hapilos Teens Party “Illumina”. His latest songs include "Do Suffer" (found on the mix tape ‘Metamorph) "Galls from birth". "Wha So Bout Me" and "If Money Coulda Buy Life" - all written buy him.
Anarchie has a host of work yet to be recorded. His dream is to perform at Sting and he aims to go international. Anarchie is the newest artiste signed to the 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution label.
