Drop Top Records Looks To Grow In 2021

Image result for CEO Rowan MelhadoLondon Jamaican label Drop Top Records has started the year strong with new releases with Jamaican dancehall artistes.

The newly minted record label, headed by CEO Rowan Melhado, began recording in 2019 with the first project called the Drop Dem Rhythm. The compilation featured artistes like Vybz Kartel with his song Day Rave.

Originally, Melhado, a Spanish Town, St Catherine, native, never thought of himself as a career producer and was focused on promoting his shoe store with the Drop Dem rhythm. The success of the singles and corresponding videos from the project, however, made the London-based businessman change gears.

“I’ve always been connected to music and grew up around artistes like Vybz Kartel, but never really thought of myself as a producer until the Drop Dem Riddim became a hit. This confirmed that I really had an ear for hit records so now I’m releasing many more singles and we aren’t slowing down any time soon,” he explained.

Trending Singles

Last year, the label released trending singles with artistes like Chronic Law, Popcaan and Dexta Daps. The label also signed its first artiste under a management deal with Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall contestant Candy Price.

“I’m a lover of dancehall and reggae music, and right now I believe the females in dancehall need the strength. I’m investing in our culture with the talented young female Candy Price. So far we have recorded a few singles and we are building her catalogue,” said Melhado.

Since the start of the year, the Drop Top label has released singles like Big Up Yuh Self by Squash, and will be releasing an all-female rhythm project that will feature artistes like Candy Price, Queen Lady Gansta, Lisa Hyper and Curvy Diva.
