With a few years in the game, Florida based Recording Artist Khxos (formerly Khaos) has been releasing Dancehall tunes and gaining attention thanks to Social Media. He received a buzz that started to bubble in Summer 2015 thanks to the release of “One Touch”. Summer 2016 kept the ball rolling with his debut EP “Deception”, but collaborations with Andrew Trabass, Chargii, and Lincoln 3Dot helped to keep it blazing for the rest of the year. Early 2017 however saw his name change, and the release of “So Loud” and “BOMM” propelled him as one to watch this Summer as he prepares to release his debut Album, “Dopamine”.

They don’t call him “El Fuego” for nothing, his music keeps you on your toes, and his lyrics hit like the hot oil from frying Plantains. This Artist has been quietly making his way onto the scene and has made appearances from “New Wave” to “Live From Kingston: Class 2016”, to “Imprint” to Protoje’s “For The Culture” event. His collaborations with the likes of Lila Ike, Runkus, and Leno Banton have received numerous hits on Soundcloud, and he hits the road (or Air) with Runkus as a part of the “Class Is In” European Tour and a stop at the German Summerjam this Summer!

3. Yanah

@DMedzMusic Made His Presence Felt At @ReggaeSumfest 2016!


Reggae Recording Artist D-Medz made a great first impact at Reggae Sumfest held at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay recently. The Artist, signed to EppJam Production, performed several of his more popular singles that spoke to encouraging youths. He also called 3 children including his daughter on stage to sing along his youth empowerment single, ‘Champion’.

D-Medz also surprised the audience and media through his music that was filled with all positive messages. The ‘Empower’ Artist was then met with open arms by the Hon. Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grangem the Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports, and the Most Honorable Andrew Holness, Prime Minister of Jamaica back stage at the show. D-Medz said “I felt elated to be in the presence of such great leaders. They were very impressed with my message and it reminded me that positivity does pay”.

On the other hand the Artist released the video for his new single ‘Nuh Falla (Bad Company)’ on the ‘Real Rock Riddim’. The single was produced by Rural and speaks to encouraging youths to avoid peer pressure and embracing positivity. D-Medz is known for singles such as ‘Champion’ that was used as a theme song on the youth empowerment programme ‘Talk Up Yout’, ‘No Vote’ and ‘Rebel Souljah’ from his EP titled “Empower”.

D-Medz who hails from the town of May Pen in Clarendon is now promoting ‘Nuh Falla (Bad Company)’ and can be followed on Instagram and Twitter (@DMedzMusic) and on Facebook as D-Medz Adams.

@MrLevy411 Stole The Show At @ReggaeSumfest 2016!


Platinum Camp Records CEO Daddy Biggs and the team behind Reggae Sumfest 2016 presented for the first time ever, Barrington Levy and Beenie Man together on stage in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Together they performed their mega hit single “Murderer” which sent the crowd in a frenzy during the historic performance. It became a diplomatic affair as Biggs arranged for Rapper Shyne to fly to Jamaica from Belize to join Levy a.k.a. “Mellow Canary” for a surprise performance of their hit records “Bad Boys” and “Bonnie and Shyne”. The crowd erupted as the Hip Hop and Reggae Artists joined forces. It was a night of sheer pandemonium to see the two “bad boys” walk on stage for a final showdown.

In another interesting move, Daddy Biggs has arranged a Latin American and a European tour for Levy in the final quarter of 2016 which commences in Chile in October. Barrington Levy is also promoting his latest single “G.S.O.A.T”, which means “Greatest Survivor of All Time”. The song is an excellently crafted masterpiece that is set to be released on August 6th to commemorate the great survivors of Jamaica and its Independence.

For booking information contact Platinum Camp Records at 917 720 2267 or email platinumcamp@gmail.com. You can also follow Platinum Camp Records on Instagram at @PlatinumCampRecords and @BarringtonLevy411.

@DonAndre Delivers Explosive @ReggaeSumfest Performance!


Reggae Sumfest Dancehall night was a success for fresh on the scene, hit maker, Don Andre. He celebrated the top Dancehall collaboration of the year alongside Ding Dong and Chi Ching Ching with a well-received high-energy performance. He also performed his new track Jog honoring Usain Bolt while flying the Jamaican flag high.

Later in the show Spice hurled insults at the fast-rising star. Don Andre is very displeased that she used his record in her set in an attempt to publicly insult his style and sexual preference. According to the artiste this is what happens with success, there is always someone who will try to bring you down.

“Anywhere there is success there is always a hater trying to stop it. Tom Cruise is in high rotation in several countries and the most popular Dancehall move right now. I just got an award from veteran sound system Stone Love to endorse that.

Spice needs to just leave me alone and work on getting an up to date number one song like, Tom Cruise. Her last number one was two years ago. Right now she’s working desperately in the streets for a song to hit like Tom Cruise.

Spice needs to find back her gear; she’s running out of steam. She should focus on her botched assets and figure out how she’s going to get them corrected and leave me out of her loose arguments,” Don Andre says.

Don Andre is billed to appear at Philadelphia Jerk Festival on August 28th in Fairmount Park.
