If you've been to a Reach Records artist show recently and thought "wow, those boys put on a GREAT show!" then there is a person you can thank for that experience. That's the legendary DJ Official. He works with the artists and bands to craft a great live experience, and also mans the 1's and 2's on stage with them much of the time. He's been a part of the fabric of the Christian Hip Hop scene as a producer and DJ for 12 years. He's crafted hits for The Ambassador, Da' T.R.U.T.H., Lecrae and many more during that time span. He's a Stellar, Dove and Grammy Award winning producer. He's traveled and rocked crowds from Alabama to Abu Dhabi. He has been the DJ spinning the records that helped shaped a movement. And while he's been doing all of that, for the last 3 years DJ Official has been battling a rare form cancer & a rare form of emphysema.
Reflection Music Group recording artist Canon's debut album 'Mad Haven' has hit the Billboard charts. Released last week, the Atlanta, GA rapper's project ranks at #3 Gospel & #10 Christian Top Billboard Albums.
Kadence, producer of Lecrae's smash hit "Go Hard", is releasing a new free album this Halloween (Oct. 31st 2013) entitled 'Die Daily.' The Oklahoma City rapper's project features Sean C. Johnson, Chad Jones, L9 and many others. Listen and download the first single "I'm Gone".
A much needed flavor and addition to the current offerings in Christian music will come from the legend, Papa San. If you aren't familiar, he is the dancehall reggae soundclash legend who had mainstream reggae hits going back to the late 80's, got saved, and went on to become the first gospel artist in the Caribbean to land on Reggae Billboard charts. Papa San is also the first dancehall artist to win a Stellar Award. Production on the album will be handled by his son and red hot producer in Christian Hip Hop right now - Tyshane Thompson (also of 808&Elite).
