Timeka Marshall and Busy Signal goes ‘Doggy Style’

Guyanese Songstress Timeka Marshall and Jamaican Dancehall Reggae artist Busy Signal are tearing up the charts with fresh out the oven 'Doggy Style'!
Collaborating with the artistes to produce this mega tune was Major Lazer, a musical project by DJ/Producer Diplo. This particular mastermind has worked with the likes of Beyonce, J. Cole and No Doubt among others.

With hot, saucy lyrics combined with the sounds of the So Shifty Mix, Timeka and Busy Signal are sure to create havoc whether on the street corners, the clubs or live concerts.
The song had hit YouTube last week and generated quite a buzz as several persons took to their Facebook pages, reposting the audio and as observed, 'Doggy Style' has been getting nothing but great feedback. Fans have even been asking about the release of a video but this is yet to be determined.

The two got together in 2009 and produced 'Feel Fah' which rocked the charts. It is anticipated that 'Doggy Style' will outdo the previous collaboration.
Marshall had been busy in the studio during 2012 with productions such as 'Kisses Softly', 'Come Over' featuring Konshens and more recently 'Undercover Lover'. She has come a long way and worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Beenie Man, Kes the Band and Peetah Morgan.
Meanwhile, Busy Signal's album, Reggae Music Again, which was released in April 2012, was placed at number seven on Welcome to the top 25 albums of 2012, a chart compiled by music pundits at BBC Music. According to a release from the station, the table is based on votes from “a wide selection of BBC Music critics, DJs, and presenters from Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 1Xtra, 6 Music, BBC Scotland and BBC Ulster”.

Jamzone to explore N.Y.C., Miami, Canada and England!

Guyanese overseas and foreigners who have never gotten the opportunity to experience Jamzone may finally be able to do so as organizers are seriously looking at the prospects of taking Jamzone international!

Chief Executive Officers of local entertainment giant Hits and Jams, Rawle Ferguson and Kerwin Bollers, are currently in talks with promoters from New York City, Miami, Canada and England to take Guyana’s biggest event to these parts.

Of course, these will have to be hosted at different time periods throughout 2013 and our local supporters will not be disappointed as a result of this massive extension. Jamzone summer break will be hosted in Guyana during its usual dates with a full line up of great acts and events.
By taking the product outside the local market, Hits and Jams believe that our country will be promoted on a higher level and the goal of broadening the tourism arena will eventually be reached.

In the startup period of the business, the small team aimed to create a beach atmosphere and focused their energies on doing just that for their first attempt at Jamzone Summer Break in 2000.
Now, more than a decade later, Jamzone has moved from a simple one day beach affair to a week-long (and soon to be two week long) string of events, ranging from International Pageants to Jazz Festivals. International artistes have touched these shores to perform at concerts featured for Jamzone and today, Hits and Jams is highly recognized for the achievement of Jamzone.
