Sadiki & AJ Brown – Party Tun Up

Skinny Bwoy recording artist Sadiki and THIRD WORLD  frontman AJ Brown have collaborated to release “Party Tun Up” – a blazing hot reggae “one drop” club banger!

The two singers initially met in 2003 at Beres Hammond’s studio. They then crossed paths again in 2011 at Reggae Sumfest and linked up earlier this year to work on the collaboration. Sadiki had this to say: “Working with AJ Brown is a major accomplishment for me. The man has been a staple on the Jamaican music scene for many years.”

The single will only be released to radio initially, but will go on sale on August 5th, 2014 as part of the “Sea of Love Riddim” compilation album. That album will feature stellar vocal tracks from Pam Hall, George Nooks, Twiggi, Roy Panton & Yvonne Harrison, Canada’s Tony Anthony, UK’s Helen Rogers among other artists.  A preview of the single is available at YouTube by clicking HERE

AJ Brown ranks among Jamaica’s greatest vocal talents. From Reggae to Jazz, World Beat to R&B, Pop to Classical, his vocal style transcends genres, musical eras, and generations. AJ rose from humble beginnings in tropical Jamaica to the glitz and glamour of the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on the invitation of the CEO, Steve A. Wynn. He “ruled the roost” at the Mirage from 1989 to1996 where he sang music of all genres and showcased his versatility and wide vocal range. He has shared the stage with international superstars including Celine Dion, Dianna King, Shaggy, Dionne Warwick, Regina Bell, the Manhattans, The Chilites, Ray, Goodman and Brown, and Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King. AJ Brown is the current lead singer for THIRD WORLD Band.
Sadiki has an extensive resume of reggae hits in the United States, Europe and Japan. Signed to Smashing Pumpkins bassist Darcy Wretzky’s and guitarist James Iha’s Scratchie Records (distributed by Mercury Records) in the late 90’s, he released an album under the name Pancho Kryztal.  His debut album as Sadiki, “Morning’s Come” (Skinny Bwoy/P-Vine, 2007) was ranked #1 in sales at HMV stores throughout Japan within weeks of its release. His sophomore set, “Lifeline” (Skinny Bwoy/Joe Fraser, 2010) topped the Weekly Star charts and rocketed to the #2 position on the New York & South Florida Reggae Charts.  Sadiki is a three-time nominee for “Most Promising Entertainer” at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA).
