by HUGH BRYDEN
Up-and-coming sing-jay Flash Raggedy said he is pleased with the growth of his music career since making his debut.
According to the entertainer, whose real name is Miguel Beckford, his recently released single ‘Dem Nuh Real” has been receiving favorable responses all over the world. The track was produced and distributed by TMD Records in England. “It’s a song that everyone can relate to. It speaks about pretentious persons around you, who seem to wish you well but really want to see you fail. Also, it has a catchy chorus with an upbeat Riddim,” the 25-year-old said. A video has been shot, which was premiered by Hype TV, which is the premier of platforms that showcase upcoming talents in Jamaica. Since then, it has been getting many great reviews, and the viewership on YouTube is growing rapidly.
Apart from his newly released single, Flash Raggedy is also excited about his already released “Real Link” mixtape, which was mixed by Dj Naz and premiered earlier this year, exclusively by www.dancehallreggaeworld.com.
This compilation contains hard-hitting songs as well as something that the ladies would really appreciate. It speaks about dreams and aspirations as well as social issues. “It demonstrates my versatility as well as my ability to create beautiful and entertaining songs,” said Flash Raggedy who hails from the tough, inner-city community of Rockfort, in east Kingston, Jamaica.
To add to his repertoire of music is his newly acquired project with K-Wiz of Black Roots Records, Antigua, who has released the “Krush Riddim,” which features internationally acclaimed recording Artiste J Diamondz, who resides in the U.S.A. The track entitled “Party” has been getting great responses from fans both locally and internationally. It’s has a very catchy “hook” with an entertaining chorus that not only appeals to the festive Summer time, but beyond. The track can be found on YouTube of which a video will soon be filmed.
“My aim is to do lasting, inspirational music. I want everyone from the toddler to the senior citizen to be able to dance to my songs. Therefore, we as artistes should do our best to keep our musical flag high,” he said.
Flash Raggedy also has an inspiring track entitled “I’ve Got A Dream,” which basically started the musical journey.
