Welcome to the next generation of Reggae Dancehall as designed by one of Jamaica’s most versatile and innovative music makers, Mr. Vegas. From “Heads High” (1998) to “Bruk It Down” (2012), Mr. Vegas has assembled an unshakable string of International Classic Reggae and Dancehall releases including Billboard hit singles during the two plus decades of his career.
Named after his recent international cross over hit single, the “Bruk It Down 2.0” album (MV Music) follows his innovative proven approach. Grounded in Reggae Dancehall, “Bruk It Down 2.0” demonstrates Mr. Vegas’ uncanny ability to tap into a seamless mix of House, Reggaeton, Soca, Pop and Dubstep.
But it’s not simply Vegas going it alone. A who’s who of production talent from Clevie to Danny Browne, Studio 758 and Jah Snowcone, help “Bruk It Down 2.0” connect the foundation of Reggae Dancehall with cutting edge musical movements. On the mic, Vegas is joined on the title track by Barbados’ very own, the Soca queen Alison Hinds while Reggae crooner Lukie D, foundation Dancehall favorite Flourgon and Reggaeton artist El Boy C are also on board, as well as St Lucian songstress Terri.
Set to release September 24, 2013, the 16-track ensemble is Vegas’ 9th studio release and the second from his own label imprint, MV Music.
Always forward thinking, Mr. Vegas is also synonymous with the success of the new social media generation; amassing copious amounts of friends and followers across Twitter and Facebook who appreciate his commentary away from the microphone and with millions of views on YouTube for his high quality videos. Currently his collaboration “Fruit Juice” with Snoop for Snoop Lion’s “Reincarnated” album and the remix of “Standing On The Sun” with Beyonce rumored to be the lead single off her upcoming album has him poised for his own album release “Bruk It Down 2.0”
