Lawless Events has kicked off the promotion of the popular water-themed event Marco Polo with the release of the Marco Polo rhythm which features several top local acts.
The Lawless Records rhythm was launched last weekend in Miami and features dancehall tracks from Ryno, RDX, Voicemail, Macka Diamond, Timberlee and Raine Seville. Soca artiste Skinny Fabulous also brings his own style to the compilation.
According to Fabian O'Hara of Lawless Records, the Miami launch was a success as the songs were well received at the various clubs and shows where they were played.
"The people there loved it, especially the RDX, Voicemail and the Timberlee. We got a very good response to most of the songs," he said.
He added that Beenie Man and Aidonia may be late additions to the rhythm.
The decision to launch the rhythm as a "build-up to the event" was born in February.
O'Hara believes it is quite an effective method of promoting the event, which will be staged in Negril for the first time.
