One of these artistes who hails from Jamaica is Boobastar who released his single titled “Beating Stick”, accompanied with the video which was recently premiered on Reggaeville.

BOOBA STARR - Dane Salmon aka “Booba Starr” was born on November 6 in Kingston, Jamaica where he spent his early childhood before his parents moved to the Greater Portmore area of St. Catherine. Booba interests in music began in high school when he started writing poems and songs and began to entertained friends and family. Shortly after leaving high school, Booba’s interest in music took on a more serious tone as he began to hone his skills and talent by performing on the Hard Drive sound system; it was this experience that gave him the confidence and the awakening that he wanted to entertain people through music. Booba is musically influenced by the great reggae artists of the eighties and nineties as well as the greatest group of them all, Bob Marley and the Wailers. With his immense talent and versatility, Booba covers a wide range of styles across the reggae spectrum ranging from today’s contemporary reggae to the old school classic of the eighties and nineties. Booba easily transitions from dancehall to Roots and Culture without skipping a beat. During 2010, Booba was introduced to Trevor “TC” Clarke, producer and owner of Jafrika Records who produced his first single “Things Change”. During that same period, Booba also produced other recordings with other producers. In 2011, Booba invested in his own recording studio and began to record his own music; he also started, along with fellow artist “Indecka” to collaborate with the Austrian Record Label ‘Lyrical War Records’. Booba also voiced “Roll Out” on the “Bomb Weh Riddim” which was produced by Dimmie Joe Muzik and G5 Entertainment. He has voiced several singles, “Neva Easy”, “Prison Neva mek fi Dawg” and “From Dusk Till Dawn” for Sweat Boxx Productions which were produced by Julius Mitchell and Sean Dias. Booba’s latest single “Hackle Di Body” is produced by Deon Gray for the Jafrika Label. Inspired by The Most High King Selassie I and life experience, Booba has matured as an individual and a musician. He is a tireless warrior who looks forward to a bright and promising future in the music industry as performer and producer. With his confidence, determination, hard work and guidance from Jah, Booba Starr will definitely be a major force in Reggae music for years to come. reggaeXclusive -- Web Site: www.reggaexclusive.com --- Phone: 416-519-0831 -- Email: reggaexclusive@rogers.com Pg - 9
