(Kingston, JA/New York/NY – 19, September 2006) Gargamel Music, Inc. CEO Mark Myrie pka Buju Banton, is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the Gargamel Music web site at www.gargamelmusic.com. Developed over the course of several months with New York-based Akium Interactive (www.akiuminteractive.com), the cutting-edge web site will serve as the official destination point for all things Buju Banton and Gargamel Music.
Fans can comb the content-heavy site for the latest news, bio and background information on Buju Banton and the entire Gargamel Music roster, check out behind the scenes photographs, listen to and watch exclusive interviews and purchase new music, t-shirts and artwork. “Our goal was to use the latest web technology to enhance Buju Banton and the Gargamel Music brand—not to define it,” explains Ramiel Sosa, Creative Director of Akium Interactive.
Buju Banton’s spectacular new album Too Bad was released in the US and Caribbean last Tuesday, September 12th and has already received glowing reviews from the Village Voice, Trace magazine online, Hard Beat News online, All Music Guide online, Billboard magazine and Associated Press, which ran in 40 newspapers/sites across the country including the LA Times and the Washington Post. See excerpt: “Too Bad is a full body workout: The hyper “Hey Boy” for the feet, the naughty “Waistline,” and the Sly & Robbie produced “Driver A” for the hips. No need to pick songs from Too Bad to play at a party—this album is it’s own playlist. Buju Banton doing dancehall is dangerous indeed. Last time he bested Marley. Who’s next?”
Too Bad is the legendary Banton’s first pure dancehall project in over a decade and the first full-length project on his Gargamel Music record label. The street single “Nothing” is steadily rising to the top of the charts in Jamaica while the commercial single “Fast Lane” continues to bubble stateside. The official release date for Canada is October 10th.
