Jamaica, the land of reggae and dancehall, is home to numerous music houses as there are churches per square mile. Jamaica seems to have a recording studio at every corner, and at every stop light, the new Vybz Kartel and Aidonia wanna-bes are eager to share their new lyrics with any ear willing to listen. This is a tradition that seems not to be dying anytime soon.
The latest addition to the craze seems to be the Scikron Entertainment Group, a related entity to the popular Big Yard Studios, where only the best producers and experienced sound engineers can be found. It’s without apology that the environment is suited for the making of chart-topping hits, which has been so since its inception on the local music industry scene. Scikron Entertainment is home to popular artistes such as Christopher Martin, Richie Loop, D-Major, D-Lynx, and Iceman just to name a few. Every day, young talents seek to become members of the fast-rising and successful entertainment group. Its names mentioned that have soared the recording house to the top of the charts with hits like “My Cup” by Richie Loop, “Come where you going” by Chris Martin and “Formula" by D-Major just to give an idea of the quality that comes out of Scikron on a daily basis.
Scikron Entertainment recently launched the now-popular Fusion Riddim, which was produced in October 2009 but all the tracks on the rhythm have finally been completed to be released on Scikron Entertainment Label. Those tracks include Gentleman and Christopher Martin "To the Top", which sits atop the iTunes Charts in Europe and has facilitated Christopher's most successful musical international recognition to date. It also features tracks by D-Major, Cecile, Voicemail, Iceman, Red Fox, Sanjay, D-Lynx, DJ Liquid and Richie Loop ft Fambo. The label also introduced new family member Ajrenalin to the world with this single "All I Really Know" which features Richie Loop. The Scikron team, headed by executive producer and C.E.O. Robert Livingston, is excited about the projects, and each time asked to talk about the label Livingston can only glee with excitement as he said with the release of “My Cup” by Richie Loop, "Scikron intends to only release hits and singles that will do well on both the international and local markets."
Scikron Entertainment group is indeed on a journey of success. With just a few buckles already attached to their belt, they are fast becoming heavy weights leaving the light weights behind. As the year comes to an end with the Fusion Riddim, only 2011 will tell.
