Be ready this summer as Esco aka Da Schocker creates the summer buzz with his debut solo album“Shock Treatment.”
The Multi-talented singer/songwriter has produced a wide range of island beats drawing influences from Dancehall, Reggae, and Soca.
As the son of veteran Jamaican disc jockey, Errol 'ET' Thompson & former Wailers background singer, Marcia Griffiths, Esco (Matthew Thompson) is the product of a major reggae royalty.
He has the ability to cross over into the mainstream market through his undeniable passion for music that transcends genres and catches the attention of listeners around the globe.
Most recently Esco’s new production company 111 has released the biggest new conscious riddim of the Spring “Mansions Riddim” featuring Elephant Man, Gyptian, I-Wayne, Alaine and much more. Esco’s list of production credits included co-produced material on many big rhythms to come out of Jamaica such as: Throwback giggy, the Dem Time Deh and the Galore Riddim collections among others.
Key hits recorded with former partner in musical madness included charting favorites; “Tuk In Yuh Belly”, “Negative” and “Wine Up Pon Har”. Esco has recorded several memorable releases including; “First Lady”, “Dirty Weave”, “Closet” and “Don’t Hail We”. “First Lady” was a recording done with Mixmaster David out of Atlanta on his Money Year Riddim. “Dirty Weave” a playful party track, was produced but Chimmey Records on the Movie Star Riddim.
These two songs were the backdrop for Esco’s medley video. In addition to multiple recordings, in 2009 Esco released the hit single “They Don’t Know” which he produced for Bounty Killa. As 2009 drew to a close, Esco was the unfortunate victim of a robbery that nearly resulted in kidnapping. This harrowing experience drew Esco closer to his purpose and much more reflective musically. The song “Wha Nuh Kill Yu” was one hundred percent inspired from the experience.
Just fresh off releasing the Mansions Riddim, this track marks Esco’s second Riddim production — Lunatic Riddim. “Weed Fi Sale” was originally a track that Wyclef Jean had recorded for fun but Esco took it and gave it a dancehall remix that is setting the Caribbean club scene on fire. Lunatic Riddim now features Esco & Wyclef “Weed Fi Sale” and Mr. Lex “Wine Pon Me”. . This is the first set of releases for this riddim. Fader Magazine writes, “Translating the “I Got 5 On It” chorus from a smoker’s anthem (over Esco Da Shocka’s Lunatic Riddim, naturally) into a dancehall, hip-grinder is fairly ingenious.For Bookings: Contact: Tamara B.
