Seven months out of the year are now fading into the dustbin of history and the local music industry is struggling to find a new artiste who can singlehandedly capture the hearts and imagination of the people and reignite the flagging fortunes of local dancehall. Who can "cross it"? Why is Jamaica not producing new superstars with regularity? Is something wrong with the industry? One876 looks at a couple of new youngbloods in the industry.    





Reportedly signed to Skatta/Downsound Records, he has a new single, Street Hustle, that jumped in the top ten recently. His cool composure onstage and his street anthems connected with thousands of dancehall goers and his successful run on the Magnum Dancehall Kings and Queens contest, gave him a large underground following.


Dancehall insiders have been raving about his latest song, Mama, on the Barbwire riddim. There are plans to shoot a music video for the song soon. Savage, (pictured above), emerged last year with the unapologetic Mi Nah on Snowcone's Ital Stew riddim and with the expert guidance of the seasoned Snowcone Fuller, he will be a force to reckon with.



Even though some people are quick to dismiss him as a Mavado soundalike, this Alliance New Generation youngblood. With high octane combinations with Bounty Killer (Summer Time) and ZJ Liquid (Party Mi Say), Patexx has a couple of singles such as Step Pon Dem, Live My Life and Empty Barrell which have been generating a buzz in the dancehall.
is ready to carve out a niche for himself in this competitive industry.



After a turbulent last couple of years, deejay Deva Bratt has put his legal woes behind him and is firmly
focussed on returning to top form as one of the brightest prospects to have emerged in Jamaica since 2008.


Having won the Cashflow contest in the Jamaica Star recently, his name is bandied about as the Next Big Thing. Will he be able to transition from underground sensation to supernova? We shall see. Do you see any other prospects out there?

Neva Lef It single, and his followup song, Galanometry is getting airplay on HITZ FM.
