fyakin_rastafarian_artiste_reggae_dancehall.jpgDoc (M.D) Entertainment recording artiste Fyakin is forcing the reggae world to sit up and pay attention with the sweet-sounding “Make Sweet Love”, a gem of a song in heavy rotation on FM radio.

“The response has been tremendous, especially on Facebook and Myspace. My relatives in the US have said they have been hearing the song on the underground stations up there, so who knows, it could crossover with the right kinda push,” Fyakin said.

The silky smooth single hit the #20 spot on the HYPE TV Top 20 charts this week. Fyakin's visibility has picked up in recent weeks he is one of the top acts on this year’s RE TV/Coke Zero school tour, and he will be performing on this Tuesday's leg of the tour on March 22nd. The Coke/RETV School Tour launched at the Norman Manley High School, then had performances at Marcus Garvey High School and then the BB Coke High School.

The Doc (M.D) Entertainment recording artiste is leading a new generation of artistes with a new sound which seamlessly blends the genres of soul, reggae and R & B, a sweet distillation that he dubs “Reggae Soul”.

He has been enjoying excellent rotation with an armada of new singles other than the aforementioned Make Sweet Love. Disc jocks have been spinning songs such as the unapologetic ‘Dem Nuh Real’, the saucy ‘Me She Want’, a dancehall-influenced monster of a track called ‘Wanting You’ and a hot combination with stablemate Stacious called 'Lock Me Down Tonight'.

It may just be Fyakin's time.

“I really love the support that I’ve been getting from the industry, the disc jockeys and selectors, everyone really,” he said.

Fyakin has performed on most of the major shows in Jamaica including Sting 2009, Rebel Salute 2009, East fest, Summer Sizzle, Coco Tea’s annual Dancehall Jam Jam, Fully Loaded, and GT Taylor’s Xtravaganza. He has also performed in the Caribbean, such as Tortola, and a
Tempo-sponsored ‘Badness Outta Style’ event in St. Kitts & Nevis. He has rocked stage shows in several states in the US such as Florida, Massachusettes, Texas and shared the stage with living reggae legends, Buju Banton and Burning Spear at Madison Square Garden in New York.

With his management team, he is also looking to conquer new markets such as Japan, Europe, Africa and wherever his musical journey takes him.

"I'm working hard towards really getting my music out in Europe so that I can appear on some of those big reggae festivals…that’s why I am focused on making music that the world can rock to," he said
