Konshens, ambassador for dancehall music and Jamaica

Dancehall artist Konshens, real name Garfield Spence, was in Amsterdam for a performance at the sold out Jamrock Explosion on 7 November 2015. His high energy show lasted over an hour and was a delight to the fans. Dancehall Explorer met up with the Gyal a Bubble-singer while he was backstage at the last show of his two month European tour by Atlantic Booking.

Double Platinum for Policeman

For quite some time we felt that Konshens' popularity had been growing rapidly in the Netherlands and this was once again confirmed in early September of this year. At that time the hit song "Policeman" with Dutch singer Eva Simons went double platinum showing that mixing dancehall with other genres can be a huge succes. Another song that has been getting heavy rotation in the clubs is Lethal Bizzle's "Fester Skank Remix" featuring Konshens. Click below to watch:

I-Octane in Amsterdam and Rotterdam

I-Octane at Jamrock in Amsterdam on 7 November 2015

During his one month European tour with Ovaproof Bookings reggae and dancehall artist I-Octane performed at Jamrock Explosion at the Paradiso nightclub in Amsterdam. He delivered a highly energetic performance to the 1500 fans at the sold out Jamrock Explosion. After his show we met up with him while fellow dancehall artist, Konshens, took the stage. One might expect the artist to be tired and longing for a shower and sleep after the show, but not the Hot Rass, he was in good spirits and ready to take pictures and give us an interview. We spoke about the Cyaa Do It song he did with Gaza Slim a.k.a. Vanessa Bling and how that started a rumor about the two having a real life love affair. I-Octane set the record straight about Gaza Slim and himself and spoke about his appreciation for women who are full of morals and don't give in to temptation to stray when they're in a relationship.
