Dancehall artiste Kalado eyes int'l market
Dancehall artiste Kalado has his sights set on international expansion for 2014.
Last year, the deejay enjoyed huge success in the dancehall sphere as his breakout hits Make Me Feel and Good Good Bring Life graced international charts across the Caribbean and the United Kingdom.
In a recent interview with The STAR, Kalado said, "It has always been a dream of mine for my music to be listened to all over Jamaica and the world. I will continue to work hard for my fans and this year, I want more persons to know more of my songs and to see who I am."
His latest efforts to garner more attention internationally will include an electronic dance music (EDM) remix of Make Me Feel which will be followed by the release of a double extended play (EP) by summer this year. The double EP will have songs for both the mainstream airwaves as well as tracks aimed at a more mature, hardcore audience.
Manager Nancy Davis (Montrevail Agency) believes that Kalado is one to watch for many years to come. "It's not every day that you find a young man so focused and dedicated to artistic and musical progression as Kalado. It's amazing to see how far he has come since his audition a few years ago on Magnum Kings and Queens, to now becoming a formidable act in dancehall."
Kalado recently released a medley music video for Pree Money and Gyal and Pay Dem Nuh Mind. Kalado's upcoming single Jealouslyis in the Air, produced by ZJ Chrome, was released earlier this month and has been receiving heavy rotation on local airwaves.
