"High-energy sets at 100 Live"

The large number of patrons who turned out at Wednesday night's staging of 100 Live at 100 Sports Bar on Hope Road in St Andrew were treated to high-energy performances. Sponsored by Appleton Estate, 100 Live is held on the last Wednesday of each month.

Dubbed Rebels in Music, the event kicked off with a performance from newcomer Artikal, a budding artiste whose father is 1990s deejay New Kidz.

“It was an absolute pleasure performing here tonight. The feedback was encouraging,” Artikal told Jamaica Observer's weekly Auto magazine.

He warmed the audience with his positive lyrics to which the crowd responded favourably.

One-time Magnum King of the Dancehall winner Deep Jahi was next and he took the proceedings to another level performing songs from his forthcoming EP titled Gifted.

“Mi love how the people interacted with me and I also interacted with them. 100 Live was a good look,” said Deep Jahi.

His set included Gifted and Life Goes On, which connected with the audience.

Rebel Salute is one of the biggest annual reggae shows locally. Speaking on his performance, Deep Jahi said “to start a show like rebel salute it means that you have the capacity to lift the patron spirit and raise awareness to the people relative to the magnitude of rebel salute so no artiste whether opening or closing act should not be taken for granted.”



Opening at Rebel Salute means the year is off to a positive start for the reggae musician. Having started his career with positive and inspirational melodic songs and strong stage presence, Deep Jahi has targeted this year to kick his career to the next level.



He is expected to feature more prominently at more local stages as he seeks to strengthen and grow his fan base while consistently providing conscious songs for the upcoming year. Deep Jahi promises a lot for the year ahead “We have a slew of work coming out right now and we recently release a song titled prison bars, directed towards the current situation whereby both dancehall and reggae artiste have found themselves in such dire predicaments”.

DEEP JAHI DELIVERS AT REBEL SALUTE 2018

DEEP JAHI LAUNCHES OWN RECORDING LABEL


Reggae/dancehall artiste Deep Jahi has launched his own record label Third Eye Vision Productions and is promoting new singles 'Money Hunny' and 'Prison Bars'.


According to singer, who is known for his record Life Goes On, he decided to start his own label in order to exercise more control over his work.



"The music is a business first and foremost and it's good to learn the business side of it. Being a producer of your own work also helps you to navigate your music and control your property as a businessman. It is a really good experience and you also get to view your career from a wide view and know the pros and the cons to the music," he said.


Since the creation of the label, the singer has been getting favourable attention for his first production effort Prison Bars.


"This song is to open the eyes of the younger generation to stay in check and know that for actions there are equal consequences" he said.


Deep Jahi's talent is no secret to the music industry. However while he has received validation on the underground music scene, the artiste thinks more media attention would take his work to the highest level.


"Right through the country and worldwide the music is known and respected but the industry is slowly getting to realise the prospective greatness," he said. "I will become one of Jamaica's stalwarts for reggae and dancehall music and also the owner of one of the biggest recording label, in time."



POSITIVE PATH
The singjay has largely stayed on the positive path with his music and laments that times are too serious to do otherwise.


"The message is what is needed in society right now. The heinous crime and violence that has taken a strong toll on our community is impacting on young minds," he said. "So the music should be good for mind so the youths can learn from it and have a positive mindset. It's is also a worldwide cry for peace hence the music is to lead the people," he stated.


The artiste also teamed up with B.I.G Rekordz for the production work on Prison Bars. A video for Money Honey was recently released.

"Entertainment Deep Jahi drops new single"

Known for his thought-provoking lyrics, singer Deep Jahi has released his latest single 'Much Less'.

The song, produced by Quantanium Records, speaks about rising above the obstacles in life and fulfilling one's goals and aspirations.

"Reggae Vibes Review"

Y.G.F Records (Young Generation Fraternity) has put out the anticipated “Gifted EP” by fast-rising Jamaican reggae/dancehall artist Deep Jahi, who was born Rushane Sanderson in rural St. Mary. The gifted vocalist, winner of the 2012 edition of Magnum King and Queens and the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission Festival in 2014, has a raw passion and feeling in his voice, which can be heard on every song. Because he’s also a good songwriter, all of the songs feature substantial lyrics.

The six-track project gathers productions by Studio Vibes Entertainment, Badart Muzic, Luv Number One Productions, Run Road Productions, and Seanizzle Records, which makes it a varied affair. The previously released single “Double Standard” comes across the Luv Number One Productions produced “Free Yourself” riddim. It’s a wicked social commentary that will certainly please the fan of good roots reggae music. “Gifted”, the title track of Deep Jahi’s debut EP, is a nice song with R&B influences and a subtle use of vocal harmony and acoustic piano. “Gunz Out”, a hard hitting tune across the “Dub Wi Luv” riddim, speaks to the harsh reality of the crime and violence plaguing the country of Jamaica, where police and gunmen are always in a confrontation. Conscious tune “Underrated” once again showcases Deep Jahi’s vocal and lyrical skills and talent and so does the matching dancehall vibed “Billion A Mawnin”. Mad vibes! The last track, “Te Amo”, is a smooth lovers tune with a nice melody to it on which Deep Jahi sounds totally different thus showing that he has great voice control.

The only minus here is the varied mastering of the tracks, which spoils the listening pleasure a bit.

CONCLUSION:  "A worthwhile collection from a much promising young artist who deserves to be heard." - Mr.T at Reggae Vibes | Jul 7, 2018 | Artist, Reviews

Bio

The Brand Deep Jahi has maintained consistency at the utmost level of professionalism.  From the moment he was given the opportunity to showcase his artistry on Jamaica’s premiere talent show, Magnum King & Queen of Dancehall, he has made an impact cementing his name in many Jamaican households and beyond.  With a fervent focus on changing lives positively, Deep Jahi mission is to create uplifting, soothing, and poetic music and ultimately establish himself as one of the great Reggae Ambassadors.

Born Rushane Sanderson in the parish of St. Mary, he started writing music at age fourteen and through the years gained invaluable experience performing at school concerts and various community events. 

​After emerging victorious in the 2012 edition of Magnum King and Queen of Dancehall and the J.C.D.C. Festival Song Contest in 2014, with the song entitled, "I LOVE JA", some prominent music producers expressed an interest and subsequent musical collaborations resulted in the production of some great songs giving credence to Deep Jahi’s lyrical proficiency and artistry. 

​In 2015 his place within the music industry was magnified.  A string of hit songs, “Life Goes On”, “Greatness”, “Conversation”, “Family Over All” and “Another Try" established him as an artiste with a bright future.  Major show promoters took notice and eventually booked him for Sting and the Kite Festival.

​In 2016, he created another anthem “Motivation” with Tevin Richards of YGF Records, a renown St. Ann based music producer. The single gained a lot of traction locally and internationally on main stream platforms. He followed up with singles produced by Lee Miller “Rain Glow“, and “Much Less” featuring Jahmiel.

Deep Jahi continued his run of success into 2017 with a BANG!.  He released “Hold On” a song which quickly gained over 100,000 streams on YouTube.  In addition, his single “Close Call” acquired more than one million views on social media.

Subsequently, he recorded two singles entitled, "Don" and "Hide" respectively for prolific music producer TJ Records. Deep Jahi was then granted the opportunity and made his debut on the Reggae Sumfest 2017.  He then closed the year with a performance on GT Christmas Extravaganza, where he performed a slew of hits.

​In 2018 his performances on the big stage continued with Rebel Salute one of the biggest annual reggae shows locally.  Although his time was limited, he made it a memorable one. Speaking on his performance, Deep Jahi articulated, “to start a show like Rebel Salute it means that you have the capacity to lift the patron spirit and raise awareness to the people relative to the magnitude of Rebel Salute so no artiste whether opening or closing act should not be taken for granted.”  As an upcoming artiste, opening on a show of this caliber bolstered his belief that 2018 will ultimately be more productive, one that will propel his career to the next level.

​As the year progresses, he is looking forward to be featured on a lot more local stages in an effort to strengthen and grow his fan base. Deep Jahi promises a lot for the year ahead and in his own words said, “We have a slew of work coming out right now and recently released a song entitled, “Prison Bars”, directed towards the current situation wherein some Dancehall and Reggae artistes have found themselves in such dire predicaments”.

​As time passes look out for more conscious musical content from the young reggae artiste. Stay informed by subscribing to Deepjahivevo, www.deepjahimusic.com, and his official Instagram page @Deepjahi for new music and updates relating to his musical journey.​
