Producer TJ Records official biography

TJ Records..Who is ‘TJ’ It would not be fair game to even put a label on Linton “TJ” White.

If you called him a music producer, you’d be right and if you called him a promoter, you’d also be right on the money because he is the organizer of the globe trotting party BEMBE, but then you would also have to add CEO of TJ Records and entrepreneur to the list.

The only way to describe “TJ” is as a visionary whose exciting interests, enviable music skills and keen insight makes him a person who is constantly sought after when it comes to making creative projects a success.

In May of 1995, Newsweek reported on four young black record producers they called "flashy, streetwise and entrepreneurial"---young men raised on street talk and hip-hop and now working with R&B and rap superstars ranging from Michael Jackson and Bobby Brown to Boyz II Men and Kriss Kross.

Seven years later half way across the world a Jamaican young producer is eager to follow in the steps of top producers like Dave and Tony Kelly, who are well known producers in the dancehall industry.

Initially TJ records realized it was a steep hill to climb but he slowly, yet firmly has stamped his place in the ever growing dancehall fraternity. With his dazzling ideas and a keen ear for music it led him directly into a burgeoning career as a ‘musically blessed producer’.

However, by the mid 2000s, after aligning himself with production duties along with his newly found family of musical geniuses known to many simply as “DASECA” he has managed to attract high-profile artistes in the industry such as Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Mavado, Assassin, Bugle, Beenie Man, Capelton, Sizzla, Elephantman, Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Lady Saw , Spice and among many others.

Although TJ’s name was not readily familiar at the time, his work was: the 2005 hit riddim Bill Back created a true rhythmical chaos on our local airwaves as well as on overseas pirate stations and BBC ‘s 1 Xtra. “Bill Back” did not only propel TJ’s career alone, it also pushed artists like Aidonia and Mavado with their tracks “Bukham” and “Bawl dem ah Bawl”, Sizzla also saw his bill back experience with his track Head Out.

However without a moments rest TJ records was back in the studio producing another show stopper. Months and months after tweaking and fine tuning the industry caught wind of the riddim proudly entitled “Show Off,” the year was 2006.

Unlike its predecessor “Show Off” caught on much much faster with its heavy baseline and catchy intro’s and lets not forget it housed one of the biggest lyrical counteractions in dancehall, the exciting lyrical thrashing found in the songs “Bullet proof ski”n from Bounty Killer and “Bullet proof vest” from Beenie Man, this definitely rehashed the on going lyrical feud between them both which spans over 10years.

Show off also gave birth to Mavado’s first single “Last Night” for his album Gangster for Life: The Symphony of David Brooks. TJ has also been responsible for the chart topping single that every girl loves to love and from the artists that every girl just loves and the single is Wine Gyal from Beenie Man .

Keeping a Cool Head Leads to Continued Success TJ’s sense of the music business provides a strong foundation for his success. He concentrates his keen eye on the voids in the music and continues to fill them. He tries not to be like everyone else when asked he says “I follow my own path and instinct”.

TJ does not confine himself to the talents of just the popular acts but branches out everyday looking for fresh talent. Clearly his strong sense of business has taken him on a long journey in a short period of time. But at the same time, he is seeking to expand his entrepreneurial spirit into areas beyond the recording studio.
