Inside The Music Biz - The Artiste Image Development

INSIDE THE MUSIC BIZ

The following is the fourth episode of a talk show programme titled 'INSIDE THE MUSIC BIZ' co-hosted by Thaddeus "Teddy" Laidley every Wednesday at 3:30 to 4:00pm. The programme is aired on HOT 102 FM during "THE HOT MIX", with Richie B 2:00 to 5:00 PM. 'INSIDE THE MUSIC BIZ' is aimed at offering insights into the music business for aspiring artistes and industry personnel.

Inside%20The%20Music%20Biz%20logo.jpgLast week's article made mention of, 'branding the artiste as a product'; however quite often the term branding and imaging are confused. There must be a clear distinction between the two, Artiste branding speaks really to the products/ services of the artiste that differentiates him/her from his/her competitors. Branding is vital to the overall success of any artiste, and in essence, a major part of branding is image. The artiste’s image entails the shared concept of his/her work, which should both go hand in hand.

Many talented emerging artists are confused by the issue of an image and don't have a sense of their own style. So, they either copy things from other people, or are just bland. Few artists actually have a true, distinct style. In today's entertainment environment, the first impression is as important as ever. However, style is only one aspect of an artist's first impression. Just imagine, an artiste who sings conscious reggae Music but attires him/herself like an American artiste who does rock music; how contradicting and confusing. I must admit such contrast may be considered being a figment of the imagination, but I suspect the main point is being conveyed, ‘there must be a match/balance between the artiste’s sound and image’.

Vybz Kartel - "We have to respect the decision of the Prime Minister"

vybz_kartel_barbados.jpgFollowing weeks of public debate and high profile media coverage, Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson announced yesterday that the Vybz Kartel/Mavado unity concert - scheduled for tomorrow - has been officially canceled.

PM Thompson is quoted in the Barbados Advocate as saying: "...I am happy to announce that in deference to the expressed wishes and the anxieties of a wide cross section of Barbadians, that the organizers of the Vybz Kartel/Mavado show and the Youth Forum have agreed to the revamping of initiatives resulting in the cancellation of this weekend's activities."

Dancehall Deejay Vybz Kartel offers the following statement:

"It is very unfortunate that the government in Barbados would cancel a show with two of the most influential Dancehall artists, especially a show promoting peace and unity amongst school children who take the whole Gaza/Gully phenomenon out of proportion. But we have to respect the decision of the Prime Minister -- ultimately he has the well being of the nation at the center of his agenda. I am saddened that we could not perform for our anxious Barbadian fans who would have turned out in the thousands for this historic event."

Buju Banton lost 40 pounds - - Attorney: client moved from jail for diet concerns

The Associated Press

buju_banton_pounds_40.jpgTAMPA, Fla. -- The attorney for Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton wants his client moved from the Pinellas County jail - for diet concerns.

Attorney David Markus filed the motion Monday. A hearing is set for Friday morning.

Banton has been in jail on a drug charge since December. The motion says he's lost 40 pounds and was not given a diet in accordance with his religious views. He's a Rastafarian, a religion that places importance on a vegetable- and fruit-based diet.

The attorney also claimed that the government used a paid informant to convince his client to buy cocaine.

The 36-year-old singer, born Mark Myrie, pleaded not guilty to a drug charge in Tampa federal court.

Banton's trial is expected to begin in April.

Ikaya Drops Money Ova Man video to rave reviews

ikayadog_artiste.jpg

Directed by the ultra-talented Scorpio 21 team, the video depicts Ikaya as a money-hustling go-getter who has her priorities down to a tee: ice over wedding rice. The video kicks off with her stepping out of a posh two storey house, briefcase in hand, and straight into a waiting limousine. TO WATCH VIDEO CLICK HERE

Her destination? A St. Andrew hillside overlooking the Corporate Area where she's making a daytime transaction, a briefcase of US dollars for her latest CD. After that, she returns to her tricked-out home for a bubble bath.

Ikaya shows off a number of striking looks during the video. There is a scene where she is in a darkened room on an executive swivel chair and as the camera approaches, she swings around, cigar in hand, and begins to deejay. She looks like the ultimate female hustler. And just in case,

you felt that move was too butch, she steps into a body-hugging bikini where her ample breasts strain against the fabric. After a dip in her pool, she lounges in a chaise, in iced-out wrist wear, sipping on expensive Nuevo and a slobbering, pampered pitbull at her feet. Damn, girl!
Ikaya is the essence of crazy-sexy-cool all throughout the video and she rocks several different outfits and sports different looks, her lips inviting and promising..., well, everything. Check it out. Open your mind, and Ikaya will follow.

The term product branding arise, the first thing that comes to mind is Gucci, Chanell or Dolce and Gabana, 'yes the well established brands'; the taught of an artiste and his/her music is far fetched. By making such striking contrast one would now realize that an artiste "brand" identity are crucial elements of the success of marketing themselves to an audience.

Rihanna To Give BFF Katy Perry The World's Fiercest Bachelorette Party

by Maria-Mercedes Lara

rihanna_katty_perry.jpgCelebrity besties Katy Perry and Rihanna are as close as two mega-famous pop stars can get, so it is no surprise that Rihanna is throwing Katy Perry a bachelorette party. Sounds like fun! Oh, we're sure our invitation was just "accidentally" lost in the mail, right Ri-Ri?

Perry has been telling her fiance, Russell Brand, that her party is going to be "every bit as wild as any party he and his boys will throw," which is kind of a bold statement to make, considering that we are talking about bad boy Russell Brand here.

Perry has a reputation for wacky parties: previous party themes have included paint wars and Willy Wonka. We just hope Rihanna knows better than to invite that party-killer swastika boy to this particular fête.

Scientist - The Big Man At Fresh Fridayz

scientis_selector.jpgFresh Fridayz is no doubt still one of the hottest parties alive and one of the few parties where patrons can party "til a mawnin".

Last night (March 19) The Building was on fire as the resident DJ Scientist raised the roof off The Building with his usual "out of this world mix"…combined with creative chattering which helps to keep the audience alive. The other members of the popular Arif 'Supa Coop' Cooper (Fresh Team) gang Krazy Dean and Dr. Cee also had the audience rocking.

"How him get suh hot from wha day," said one female patron while her friend crabbed onto the railing and gyrates her waistline to Mavado & Stacious' Come Into My Room.

Scientist is definitely a "research" away from being the next top selector as long as he can continue to maintain the musical energy each week at Fresh Fridayz.

Scientist is one of the many selectors who have fought for their space in this competitive music industry and Scientist will definitely be ranked amongst some of the top gunz Inna 2010.

Slot machines were not the only things being played at the Acropolis Gaming Lounge last Friday night. Drums were being struck and guitars were being strummed as well. It was as though members of In-Digg-Nation manipulated the very air in the building. For all the net worth of the venue, the priceless energy could not be purchased. Protoje, stepped on stage at around 8:30pm to let the crowd know that it was going to be ‘Dread.’

Dubkore Sticking To Roots Reggae Music

dubkore_reggae_artiste.jpgWhile many people are of the belief that the roots reggae genre of music is dead especially in Jamaica, singer and songwriter Dubkore is adamant that this is far from the truth. The talented musician who is also a producer says that roots reggae cannot die because it is the foundation of popular Jamaican music. He also noted the fact that many of the artists who have created this type of music are still doing their thing successfully abroad. Burning Spear, Toots Hibbert and Jimmy Cliff who was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame were cited as examples.

“Roots music can never die; it’s the foundation of Jamaican popular music. The people love all over Europe, Africa and all other parts of the world. Bob Marley and other great ones set it, so it will live forever.”

One on One With Vybz Kartel - "I put my trust in scientists rather than pastors"

Artist Spotlight: Zo catches up with Vybz Kartel in an in-depth, online interview.

vybzkartel_zobanner.jpgFirebombings, scandalous pictures, beatings, conflicts with artists and producers, visa problems, and getting called into a summit with the Prime Minister - despite all this, Vybz Kartel, aka Addi the Teacher, aka the Gaza King - the infamous Adidja Palmer is still the Last Man Standing. Is the press surrounding these events real or just hype? I sat down with the Gaza Don himself to find out what separates the entertainer Vybz Kartel from the man Adidja Palmer, who I personally think is one of dancehall's most talented writers - whether controversial or conscious.

Zo:

First and foremost, a majority of the comments on Itunes say it's your best album yet. How do you feel about Pon di Gaza 2.0?

Vybz Kartel:

mi say di same ting.

Zo:

Why is the Gaza such a significant part of your lyrics in your music?

Vybz Kartel:

It's the nickname of my community. But since its inception everywhere in Jamaica has it graffiti style to show their love for Addi and it's also the unofficial name of the teacher. Like a pseudony.

Genesis The New Beginning

genesis_riddim_daseca.jpgHit-making trio DASECA have decided to take a refreshing approach to their latest riddim project - the Genesis. Instead of flooding the marketplace with CDs and free download links as soon as the project had been mixed, they decided to structure its release by keeping it exclusive to select radio DJs until it becomes available at digital retail (iTunes etc) March 23.

"What has become the norm for Jamaican producers is to literally give away the music as soon as it is finished," laments David Harrisingh, one third of DASECA. "Email blasts, social networking sites, blogs etc ensure the music ends up in the hands of any and everyone who wants it, and they don't have to pay for it. So while it creates a hype and give artists hit songs and generates shows and dub plate income for them, the producer has to pretty much wait on the few remaining labels who deal with Reggae to license a song here or there for a compilation. Whereas in the past labels would take the whole riddim from a producer, that has stopped because of poor sales and because our music has never been marketed properly causing it to end up in a mire. Producers are needed in the business just as much as artists so we have to find a way to survive."

Zumjay survives another day in the Middle East, "Ready Fi Defend It"

zumjay_army_reggae.jpgMost dancehall deejays just use violent imagery and artillery-packing, cop-killing, asphalt visions to boost their street credibility. But Zumjay has gone one better. He is literally risking his life, 'bussing' real army issued guns, and exterminating terrorists as part of the US armed forces in the Middle East.

He doesn't have to try to make up rhymes about conflict to earn street cred, he has lived the real thing. Listen to the Boardhouse production, Ready Fi Defend It, and you get that sense of realism and urgency that Zum has brought to his music.

Dem say war, like Western Union mi wi send it
Ready fi defend it
Beat it beat it like Buju and bend it
Ready fi defend it
Bwoy see mi dawta and try fi offend it
Ready fi defend it

zumjay_army_video.jpgZumjay has matured a great deal since his days as a youth engineering in the studios of Penthouse, working professionally with the likes of Beres Hammond, Buju Banton, Morgan Heritage, and Beenie Man. He may not have a string of commercial hits behind his name but his consistency as a writer of his own music and for big name hits such as Sean Paul continue to pay off. His knowledge of musical composition from conception to its delivery, will undoubtedly give him longevity in the industry.

Breaking Into The Music Business

INSIDE THE MUSIC BIZ WITH THADDEUS "TEDDY" LAIDLEY

Inside%20The%20Music%20Biz%20logo.jpgThe following is the first episode of a talk show programme titled ‘INSIDE THE MUSIC BIZ’ hosted by Thaddeus “Teddy” Laidley every Wednesday at 3:30 to 4:00pm. The programme is aired on HOT 102 FM during "THE HOT MIX", hosted by Richie B 2:30 to 5:00 PM. The programme is aimed at offering insights into the music business for aspiring artistes and industry persons.

You have recorded some singles for the unsuspected world to hear, so what! Anyone with a few dollars can go into the studio and record some singles. Making music and making a living from music is not the same thing. When it comes to getting your music in the market place you have entered the domain of music business economics. There are two music worlds. There is the world of pure music, which involves the creative side of things, song writing, rehearsing and performing. Their is another world which must come into play if you truly want people to hear your music...the music business; questions associated with such are what is a copyright? What do publishers do? What happens when you do sign with a record label or a contract? What is a royalty and why do labels pay the royalties they do pay? Etc.

Breaking into the music business takes hard work, a lot of discipline, and as a recording artist you have to be prepared you have to keep your head up. You've got to have passion, think out of the box and have basic fundamental business knowledge. There are several ways in which opportunity presents itself. One such is our local talent shows through which artist can be discovered, which have proven to be a success. Some examples are: Digicel Rising Stars, which have given way to Christopher Martin, O'Neil Peart and most recently the astounding Jim Laden; Tastee Talent Trail which have given way to, the legendary yellow man, Sensational Nadine Sutherland, and the undisputed Bennie Man and many others.

Lil Wayne Begins Serving One-Year Jail Sentence

By Tim Nudd

lilwayne-jail.jpgRapper Lil Wayne arrived at Rikers Island in New York City on Tuesday to begin serving a one-year jail term on a weapons conviction.

Wayne, 27, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., chose not to speak at his sentencing on Monday, the New York Post reports. With good behavior, he could be out of prison in eight months.

After initially pleading not guilty to gun possession after a July 2007 arrest, Wayne changed his plea to guilty in October in exchange for a reduced 12-month sentence.

Wayne had had his sentencing postponed twice in the past month -- once so he could have dental work done, and once because of a fire in the courthouse basement.

He recently tried to put his ordeal in perspective, telling Rolling Stone: "I look at things as 'Everything is meant to be.' I know it's an experience that I need to have if God's putting me through it."

Even though he has only been on the scene for a short time, he has impressed many people with his sharp lyrical skills. The talented young man who hails from the parish of St. Elizabeth is a very creative and innovative song writer. He is also a very strong vocalist and an excellent stage performer.

Since the beginning of the year Protoje has been busy in the studios working under the guidance of ace producer Donovan Don Carleon Bennet, as he completes his much anticipated debut album The Seven Year Itch. Working with Don Corleon has already began to pay rich dividends as Protoje has been getting loads of airplay both locally and abroad with Don Corleon produced singles Dread and the new thought provoking track titled JA.

Despite his hectic studio schedule Protoje has also been very busy on the live show circuit; he recently delivered show stopping performances at the Coral Cliff Resort in Montego Bay and the Negril Escape Resort in Negril. His next assignment will be on Friday the 12th of March at the Acropolis Gaming & Entertainment Centre in Kingston, where he and his backing band Indiggnation will be doing a special concert dubbed Unplugged.
