Four weeks after OutAroad.com officially began the promotional campaign for the January Artist of the Month Konshens we are proud to announce that a number of great things have materialized for the budding Dancehall DJ.
Currently signed to Natural Bridge Records Konshens has in the short space of a month increased his status quo as he is already being regarded as a credible up-comer in the business. Now receiving heavy radio rotations for his singles Winner, Jah Protect I, So High, Ratta Tatta and a brand new release for the Carnival season dubbed Lock The Whole Dance Down, Konshens believes his stint on OutAroad.com helped to boost his visibility.
"OutAroad.com really help with the buzz in the streets, the text message campaign and the website promos set the thing to a level weh people nuh stop call mi and say dem see a ting so trust mi OutAroad.com have it lock".
Just recently the young up-comer was visited by two of West France's finest disc jocks - D&H - Daddy & Hypa who after meeting Konshens two years ago through the popular myspace network finally decided to make a trip to Kingston Jamaica. D&H who hails from Rennes is no stranger to the reggae fraternity in France. They are members of a live band that often times backs for reggae acts on tour in their country and when they're not producing Reggae riddims their hosting their D Roots Direct radio station which is complimented by a label D&H Records which the two started after putting more than 10 years in the music industry.
Since arriving in the island on the 29th they've been checking out several of the party scenes, hanging out with Konshens and his Management Team at popular hotspots like Passa Passa, Bembe and even the Quad nightclub. Speaking exclusively to OutAroad.com D&H was in high spirits about their meeting with Konshens.
"It's my first time in Jamaica still and you dun know I’ve been here chilling with Konshens and soaking up some a di culture, mi really love the Jamaican way of life you guys party hard". (Laughs)
"You know when we first met Konshens we thought his music was new and refreshing yuh know it had this positive energy bout it and from day one we say him was gonna buss big. Him have some wicked tracks out and mi feel like the quality of his music ago just get better and better, him stepping up".
D&H hit the road with Konshens as he traveled with RJR 94 FM on their High School Tour and were amazed at the response of the public.
"When we say how the people respond to him as an artist is like a good ting, the love we saw him getting was huge and di girls dem love him, everybody wanted a picture".
"We been here a listen some of his new tracks and trust mi the tune that him have fi carnival ago have the girls dem wild, a just nuff energy and good vibes".
