It’s 2022, and UK DJ Charlie Sloth is still keeping things blazing with his signature show Fire In The Booth. Sloth is hitting 2022 at full torque as he prepares to showcase dancehall in all its glory, blending legends with the new guns.
A showcase that is said to separate the boys from the men and the amateur from the authentic, ‘Fire in the Booth’ is known as the biggest freestyle platform on the planet, and after a few months break in late 2021, it is back with a bang and should be bigger and more musically explosive than ever. The latest offering from the famous freestyle music format has been dubbed “The Jamaica series” and was launched on January 4.
It will not only feature some of the brightest up and coming artistes in the industry but, to top it all off, has pulled out all the stops and copped artistes such as Pamputtae, Zebee, Teejay, Daddy1, Runkus, and one of the hottest acts in the business presently, Skillibeng. If that was not enough to get fans anxiously salivating, Grammy winner Sean Paul is also on board to show off his freestyle skills and shake things up big time.
Other names that are featured on the Instagram poster include Jashii, Laa Lee, and Qrush. On the official ‘Fire in the Booth’ Instagram page, the caption reads.

“One of the reasons I moved FITB to Apple Music was to fulfil this goal… Jamaica has always been top of my list,” Sloth told the Jamaica Star newspaper last year. “Jamaica is a place that I love personally but, most importantly, because of its immeasurable musical legacy. There are new names that I want to share with the world while at the same time celebrate the legacy of some of Jamaica’s most iconic superstars.”
