Breakthrough reggae/dancehall singjay I-Octane is proving that the genre is very much alive and doing well.
Octane’s latest mixtape “Focus” was featured in NY Times: Jon Carmanica’s Playlist. The 31 track mixtape was mixed by Dev Kutta and showcases the singjay growth as an artist.
According to Jon Carmanica, the Focus mixtape showcased I-Octane over caustic and punchy rhythms to some of his recent hits like Puff It and Nuh Ramp With Mi. The feature also highlighted a soon-to-be released single, Crime A Rise produced by Garry G of ‘Uniiqe Impact Productions’, which showcase a new sound of I-Octane.
I-Octane also weighed in on the feature.
“Being featured in a newspaper such as The NY Times has showcased me to a broader audience; an audience who majority of them never heard of I-Octane is a huge step for me and my team.”
