From Jamaica Observer

EMERGING singjay Ssense feels his latest single Karma will resonate with listeners.

“The song Karma is influenced by personal experiences. How people treat you result in their karma; how you react to them depicts yours,” he told the Jamaica Observer. “Karma is real.”

The single was released yesterday on the Atlanta-based Island Jams Production imprint. The accompanying video was released the day before.

Hailing from Seaview Gardens in Kingston, Ssense (real name Levon Dwyer) emerged on the dancehall scene in 2013. He said he always wanted to be an entertainer and drew inspiration from Bounty Killer and Shabba Ranks, who once resided in his community.

After completing his studies at Kemps Hill High School in Clarendon, the singjay migrated to the Cayman Islands in 2004 in search of employment.

“I worked, but music was never far from my thought,so I began recording there. However, those songs never got the recognition they deserved,” he said. Ssense returned to Jamaica in 2009 and released Hustle Hard a year later.

“That gave me my breakthrough. It got steady rotation and my fan base began building,” he said.

Ssense is optimistic his career is on the right track with his current management team.

“I was on Sting 2015 and was booked for Dusk ‘til Dawn. I also have a gig in Cayman next weekend. The commitment and passion that these people demonstrate just inspire me to be better; they provide a stepping stone for greater achievements,” he said.

His other tracks include Have Things To, Like Crab, Everything Fly, and Life Get Hard.

Cayman-based dancehall artiste Glamaton is in an upbeat mood as his single titled Jamaican Slang on the J Keys Records label continues to grow in popularity.

The song, which is the title track from his debut album, was released in February, and since then it has enjoyed steady rotation on several top local radio stations, including HITZ 92 FM and IRIE FM.

“I feel very good about the response that my song is getting. It’s receiving strong support from DJs in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, the US and Europe. I’m also getting positive comments about it from my fans on Facebook,” said the artiste.

Glamaton recently shot a video for Jamaican Slang. The video which was filmed in Grand Cayman under the direction of Jamaican music video director Shat Video, is scheduled to be released in May.

“The video is currently being edited and will be ready for release early next month.”

The St Elizabeth-born deejay has been very busy doing the promotional rounds in support of his single and album.

“I’m doing a lot of promotion for the single and the album, so far I’ve done several interviews on radio stations in Jamaica, Cayman, and other parts of the world. I am also planning to visit Jamaica next month to do an intensive promotional campaign,” said Glamaton.
