RDX energy amps West Indian Labour Day Parade in New York

Dynamic Dancehall duo RDX is still reeling from the epic experience of preforming live at the highly sought after West Indian Labour Day Parade in New York earlier this month.

The parade is held every year on the US Labour Day Weekend, September first to third, and sees over 7 floats glide through the streets of Brooklyn on Labour Day with a sea of Caribbean residents and other patrons following the parade.

The duo, who were booked to perform on that weekend in New York at ‘Anything Goes Live; at Amazura in Queens, were invited by numerous bands and trucks from Soca and Dancehall teams to be a part of their festivities. They decided to perform on a float with popular US reality TV star Safaree who also has Jamaican roots.

"We always have had bookings in other markets during Labor Day weekend. This year was just New York's turn so we opted to perform on the parade as well, nothing happens before its time and for the patrons it was definitely worth the wait ." Renigade explained

RDX with their large high energy catalogue, fits comfortably in both Dancehall & Soca cultures, which are the two dominant party music genres in the West Indian community in the US. It was therefore no surprise to the two when popular songs like Jump, Bend Over, Shake Your Bam Bam and Broad Out were sung word for word by the thousands at the West Indian Labour Day parade.

"The energy was unreal, totally lit. Our Caribbean people were out in their numbers and we had a great time rocking out with them. Seeing flags waving from all different Caribbean nationalities filled us with pride," Delomar added

RDX is now back on the island preparing for The Release Innovation Community College tour that takes them across Jamaica this October. Their 'Roll It' Music video will be released soon as well as on the production side, they will be releasing the 'Illegal Riddim' which contains songs from I-Octane, Serani and newcomer Lexikon among others on their Apt.19 Music label.

Their very popular music video for the Shake Your Bam Bam single is now at more than 17 million views on YouTube and continuously climbing.
