Established in his own right, Teetimus da producer is well known amongst music circles for his cutting edge sound and avante garde ear for matching artists with multi-genre sounds. Teetimus’s newest project is no exception to this standard as he’s the first producer to make Vybz Kartel ‘pop!’
Merging Pop with Techno and a splash of electronic, Teetimus (as the producer) lays the musical groundwork for Vybz Kartel to deliver one of his most well received cross-over performances in the song called “U.F.O. MEDZ” which features the Dancehall King and Teetimus the Rockstar.
Recently released to the worlds’ most prominent DJ’s, initial feedback to the song exceeded the teams expectations. “We knew the DJ’s were going to like the track” said Teetimus from his recording studio in New York, “but we didn’t expect it to be so well received by the Pop and Techno audience. Vybz Kartel did a great job with the track – he really is dih teacha!”
For Vybz Kartel, shying away from a track so forward thinking for the Pop genre was not an option. The artist recorded his vocals in Jamaica prior to incarceration and expressed that the Pop / Electronica sound will allow him to gain fans of a wider background. “Teetimus approached me with this track and the result is great. I stayed true to Dancehall while working with a new genre. Fans are going to appreciate it.”
Already available on iTunes, the track has gained a lot of traction with sites such as Chromaticmag.com, Spotlightnow.com and Yardhype.com. The preview, available on YouTube, is one of the most searched, marking another sign that the single is on deck to being a hit.
No stranger to success, Teetimus the Rockstar earned several accolades as the co-producer of Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley’s 2012 hit song “Affairs of the Heart,” Trey Songz “Ladies Gone Wild” and Mr. Vegas “Bruk It Dung,” and is in negotiations to produce a track for a very prominent and Grammy award winning female rapper.
