After taking an extended break from the music scene, internationally recognized recording artist, Alty B, known for his 2013 smash hit, Island Girl (feat. Richie Loop) has returned with a proverbial call to arms, shooting lyrics aimed at bringing back a positive vibe to dancehall across the Greater Toronto Area and Canada with his new SINGLE, Nice Up In Yah.
With the Canadian dancehall scene in need of a mainstream boost, Alty B speaks on many of its promising talents that have shown flashes of their talents, but have seldom been heard from in recent times. With ‘no vindictive feelings’ being expressed, as the song’s intro indicates, Nice Up in Yah mentions friends and fellow acts such as Eyesus, Sample King, Ziggy Eva Strap, Blessed and Lindo P as he openly wonders why Canadian dancehall fans have not seen much from some of the familiar names within the LOCAL industry.
The Island Girl singer ponders why ‘from when Five Star nuh sing bout di gyal dem, Badda Squad? nuh hear from way back when,” as he looks for answers as to why the scene is not as vibrant as it once was. Furthermore, he addresses fans who have questioning his own hiatus from the music scene as he reveals the birth of his first child played a major role as he put family first before deciding to make his triumphant return.
Featuring the combination of a pulsating beat and Alty’s vibrant PERSONALITY, Nice Up In Yah is a charge to bring back the energy and dedication to Canadian dancehall that it so desperately needs, with the always-ambitious entertainer willing to step to the forefront to lead said charge.
Produced by fellow Jamaica COLLEGE alum, Ramus and Brampton-based Unit One Recording, this track is simple but effective with its motivation; a chance to rejuvenate interest this popular genre across the GTA and garner attention from the necessary industry players to again put Canadian dancehall on the map. With a mixtape in the works and other projects to come, Alty B aims to ‘nice up’ the scene again through his music

With a line up of over 20 of Toronto’s finest up and coming deejays rearing to perform this Friday night (Nov 8) in the city’s North West, BUSS: The All Canadian Stage Show is primed to be a huge success.

When the doors open at 10PM on Friday night,  the increasingly popular On The Rox Nightclub will undoubtedly be the best place for Toronto’s Dancehall fans to be. The night’s entertainment is nearly endless with acclaimed local deejays such as Eyesus, Sample King, Lindo P, Korexion, J Logix, Reese Badda, Fyah Lion, Triston Fivestar, and many others on the roster. Toronto’s top media outlets such as IETV, TorontoDeejays TV, ReggaeXclusive Magazine and others will cover the event.

The final show rehearsal this past Wednesday night received an overwhelming attendance by local deejays at various stages in their careers. Many were not slated to perform but came out to support their fellow artists and the growing Dancehall movement happening in Toronto. Event promoters include Mike “Yellow” Smith and Sandra Slyburne amongst others. The team is anticipating strong attendance and plan to make BUSS an annual event.

After receiving mild criticism for the chosen name of the event, Slyburne posted the following on Facebook to help clarify the intent behind the stage show: “BUSS, for those who are referring to the notion that artists can’t make it Canada, please note the show is not about making it Canada in reference to “as a reggae artists”. The show is simply put together by some Canadian business men who decided we should also appreciate our homegrown talent and named it the All Canadian Stage Show. The show is to encourage and build their esteem/artistic ability and provide a forum for this. The point is they live here, a stage show is planned and they are just looking for support and nothing else! I hope this clears up any confusion!”

With a purpose to genuinely inspire and encourage local deejays, the team behind the event has gained the attention and support of like-minded business people and organizations in the city including TorontoDeejays.com

The creators of BUSS would like to thank all of the artists and sponsors that have been involved in the planning and preparation of the first-ever All Canadian Stage Show.
