Kingston based DZL Records is at work producing great music to be delivered to every listening ear worldwide. Having enjoyed success with releases from 2018 and the first half of 2019, the Dale Virgo owned label looks to get into higher gear with these new releases.
Starting off the round of releases is Singer/Songwriter Ch4se with his Dancehall/R&B single, “Closer“! The track finds him getting the attention and affection of his love interest as he wishes to get closet to her, and express his desire for her in every way.
Next on the agenda is Gospel Recording Artist/Songwriter D.A. Jay with “Start A Fire“! Featuring Dancehall Artist Agent Sasco, we get a song filled with motivation and a showcase of two Artists who aren’t afraid to speak their minds on a track and deliver that “Message music“.
Closing off this round of releases is Recording Artist Ghana with her highly anticipated project, the “Gypsy Dread EP“! Featuring 6 tracks, Ghana tackles political and personal themes and showcases some versatility throughout.
With releases on the way, the DZL Records engine won’t be dying down anytime soon. Check out the new releases below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Word is Stonebwoy has another Afrobeats/Dancehall collab on the way, stay tuned to 13thStreetPromotions.com for the update.
“Fraid me buss dem secret…“
With lyrics that will have you thinking but also moving, Ghana is an Artist to watch this year and beyond. Ghana bites her tongue for no one however as she teams up with Producer Dale Virgo on “Silence The Dread“! Released through DZL Records, Ghana brings awareness to the many forms of abuse Women suffer at the hands of men all over the world. She also puts the spotlight on those who know about the abuse in the home, but turn a blind eye to it all. This song calls for more discussion on these matters, and more people to put into action that those who practice these types of abuse should be brought to justice.
Bringing a strong message during “Women’s History Month“, this is just a small part of Ghana’s rollout as she is finalizing her debut EP, “Gypsy Dread” to be released in June through DZL Records. If you were a witness to her live performances like at the recently held “9th Element” event in Kingston, then get ready for more as she plans to announce more shows in the coming days. She cannot be moved, muzzled, or put down when she’s lashing out against injustice! Lyric video by Hanna Phoenix, check out the track below, and share with a friend.

When was the last time you heard a Gully Bop tune? He was on top of the Dancehall scene for a while, but somewhat faded out. With some saying he’s working on his comeback, today’s new entry may just be a start. Recently his “Wuk Affa Mi” single was sampled by Ghanaian DJ/Producer Juls for the Nigerian Dancehall Artist Burna Boy assisted, “Gwarn“! A song for the ladies, Juls and Burna want them to know that they have the “good good loving” that they need! With Bop’s catchy lyrics that turned him into a viral sensation added, the single also gives the men a warning that if you don’t treat her right, another man will. With a really nice production that blends well with the lyrics, you can’t help but keep this one on repeat! Check out the track below, and don’t forget to share!
