CultureMix launches a new record label CultureMix Records to enable talented artists to access high quality production for the mainstream music industry market.
CultureMix Records supports talented artists and musicians with career development through management, mentoring, production and promotion.
Grammy award winning producer and bass guitar supremo Don Chandler (Morgan Heritage, UB40) and executive producer Mary Genis provides backing for emerging talent with access to artist management, recording studios, world class musicians, marketing and touring.
Rising reggae star Junior Watson is the first to be signed up and has already recorded four of his original self penned songs live at the famous Willesden based Theorem Music Village studios formerly known as Brent Black Music Collective (BBMC).
To bring Junior’s music to life Don brought together the cream of today’s reggae musicians including keyboardist Cyrus Richards (Rasites, Horace Andy), guitarist Kashta Tafari (Rasites, Soul II Soul), Carl Benjamin (The Wailers, Lee Perry), engineer James Zugasti (Aswad, Dub Asanti Band, Rototom main stage) and a classic three piece horn section.
BBMC is a treasure trove of reggae history where many UK and Jamaican reggae greats rehearsed for live tours and recorded music that stands the test of time. Maxi Priest, Gregory Isaacs, Aswad, The Wailers, The Mighty Diamonds, Frankie Paul and Freddie McGregor all passed through this iconic venue.
Look out for Junior’s track release in 2019. For more information contact CultureMix Management.
