The release of ‘From Campaign to Champagne’ is highly anticipated especially by Kashu’s Clarendon Fans. As the intensity in the Moby’s camp heighten’s and preparation for it’s first official album launch get under way, Manager Ryan Singh disclosed that this launch marks the epitome of a successful future for both Kashu and Moby’s.
The Parish of Clarendon has over the years produced some of Jamaica’s most potent Reggae artistes in the genre’s 50 years of existence. Ryan Singh and his Moby’s Record label intend to unearth and introduce to the world, some of many young, talented Clarendonians who are budding with pride and potential in the parish seemingly, churning Reggae ‘mill.’ He advises music lovers to take note of the birth places of the artistes emerging from the shores of Jamaica and note the great ones before to understand how important it is to provide a launch pad for developing talents in his parish. Singh is not not speaking his thougts aloud but had put in effect, a successful Moby’s Talent Search series last November which concluded December 27th, 2012 in the parish and promises to commence a new edition this year.
The release of Kashu’s debut album will be an important milestone not only for him but those in his parish who aspire to achieve what he has and more. Irie FM’s radio jock DJ Amber will host the launch while there will be guest appearances by Kashu’s colleagues/fellow artistes Noddy Virtue, Hezron and label mates Israel Yadalfi and Jemineye all backed by Moby’s band. The campaign has ended, at least for now, it’s time to pop some champagne.
