In 2007, powerhouse label Epic announced it was teaming up with indie-major label Koch to release albums by several up-and-coming urban artists. Having introduced the world to now-superstar Sean Kingston and DJBooth mainstay Yung Berg, the partnership is ready to unleash their newest artist: straight out of Kingston, Jamaica, reggae artist Demarco. Offering a tribute to all the Fallen Soldiers in his home streets, Demarco’s voice has an old-school feel (enhanced of course by the now famous vocoder), and is accompanied by his very own production work. The Epic/Koch team is 1 ½ out of 2 so far, will Demarco continue the hit streak? Find out later this year when his debut album hits stores.
