Ragga Soca king, Bunji Garlin is poised for his greatest worldwide success with “Differentology,” the biggest hit to emerge from 2013’s Caribbean Carnival season.

Already the recipient of multiple International Soca Monarch awards in his native Trinidad, Bunji has not rested on his laurels. He maintains a steady international touring schedule and continues to push the sonic envelope with edgy soca tunes like “Differentology.”

The genre-bending song also caught the attention of Major Lazer, who immediately jumped on the remix. The song (which is featured on Major Lazer’s SoundCloud) is currently the DJ supergroup’s go-to track to open all of their live shows and has helped fuel the buzz to a crossover audience.

Reggae sensation Ras Penco is making the rounds on local and international airwaves, as his hit single “Thousand Miles” has been garnering airplay on radio and television throughout the Caribbean and North America. The single went to #1 in Jamaica in April, is currently #2 in the Cayman Islands, and the video has been in regular rotation on BETJ and VH1 Soul ever since.

Now as the summer concert circuit heats up, Penco will be taking centerstage at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Friday, July 24. Billed as “International Night,” Penco will be sharing the stage with the likes of Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson and Jazmine Sullivan. Sumfest is touted as the best reggae show on Earth and Penco is one of the few reggae artists that will be bringing its authentic sounds to the thousands of international tourists who journey to Sumfest each year.

“It’s a great accomplishment for me to be performing for the first time at Reggae Sumfest,” states Penco. “Sharing the stage with Ne-Yo on ‘International Night’ and representing reggae music on that line-up and that stage is a big step for me.”

Back with his new single “Most High,” Penco composes a more cultural theme than the romantic “Thousand Miles,” in a timeless conscious tune that laments the guidance and protection offered by the Rastafari faith. The single is already climbing the charts and finding fans in reggae aficionados everywhere. “It’s a prayer for me now to further my career and for Jah to guide me along my journey,” reveals Penco. “It’s doing well in Jamaica, as well as the U.K. and Canada and I’m looking forward to performing for my fans there soon.”

With two consecutive hit singles, Ras Penco is tapped to be the future of reggae music and someone reggae fans can count on to deliver solid songs that define the soulful genre. Stay updated with artist news and tour information by logging on to www.myspace.com/raspenco.
