SuchMan Records makes musical debut | Entertainment
The western part of Jamaica has, in recent times, given birth to many of dancehall’s current top acts and in a bid to carry the torch, Trelawny-based producer Courtney Broughton has launched his record label and artiste management company.
The decision to venture into music was easy as his father, Courtney Broughton Sr, more popularly known as Food Kartel, already paved the way. Today, Broughton is the founder of SuchMan Records, a label which also serves as a management company for up-and-coming artistes.
“Music has always been my endgame and today I am happy to say I am a step closer to that goal. My father’s influence has a lot to do with my decision as well as being in the environment with (artiste) Take Ova. I decided to launch a production label and sign young talents because I believe that a lot of mega stars are out there but they don’t have the resources to carry out certain tasks. I signed two artistes who I believe with my guidance have the qualities to break barriers. I currently have Sud Sud and XS under my management and as a teaser, we released two singles that are performing well,” said Broughton.
The label is currently promoting Give Thanks by XS, and Self Protection by Sud Sud.
“The visuals for Give Thanks is out and just how relatable the song is, is the driving force behind its performance so far. Just a few weeks ago we released the visuals for Self Protection and fans are sharing it all over social media because they can’t believe such a young artiste delivered such a track,” said Broughton.
While promoting his artistes, Broughton shares that he has projects in the pipeline from acts like Gage, Take Ova, Korrex and Flaggingz.
