Reggae artiste I-Octane continues blazing a trail across the world after concluding his three week tour in Japan. It was the artiste's first time visiting the country and his fans immediately made him feel welcome. I-Octane performed to jam packed venues at different locations across the country and proved to droves of Japanese people that he is indeed the 'next big thing'. It was also a tremendous experience for the artiste and he admits that while he has always heard of the support of Japanese fans, to actually see and experience it for himself was truly humbling.



 "I feel good that my music has taken me to Japan. Its a real milestone for me and it has motivated me to go even harder, mi nah stop now. But I give Jah thanks for the opportunity."


Even after the success of the Japanese tour, I-Octane never took a break. Staying true to his promise to "go even harder", after leaving Japan he flew to New York to perform on the Reggae Rhythm and Blues show which took place on September 4. His last minute addition to the line up gave his fans something to look forward to and in typical I-Octane fashion, he did not disappoint.


Even though his set was cut short, he made every minute of his set count and gave his fans hit after hit which left them screaming for more. So much so that he was called back to the stage to meet their demands! Immediately following his performance at the first annual Reggae Rhythm and Blues I-Octane went straight to New York's Hot97 radio station for an interview with Bobby Konders and Jabba (Massive B), which summed up his Japan tour and future ahead. His performance was a success and New York will have yet another high quality I-Octane performance to boast about.


Now back in Jamaica, the artiste continues to work on creating positive music to expand his catalogue and share with the world. His much anticipated debut album "Crying to the nation" is expected to be released sometime in the fall.
