Kapri is beefing up the promotion on his latest song, Midtown Party, released in December 2018 on the Home Boyz Family Muzik label.
“I have been pushing the song in the clubs and street dances around the Corporate Area and the feedback has been great. The song is on all major mixtapes in the streets and selectors have been giving it support,” Kapri told the Jamaica Observer.
“The Midtown Party song is really changing the game for me, so I am coming to turn things up, the right way,” he continued.
The deejay, who resides in the United States, will return to Jamaica to do some finishing touches on a seven-track EP scheduled for release in summer.
“The EP will feature works from producers such as Jah Snowcone, Seanizzle and Teetimus. I am also doing a collaboration with Elephant Man on a rap beat, the concept is wicked. We are making major moves, videos, street promotion, we going all out,” he said.
The deejay, whose real name is Dwayne Wallace, grew up in Jamaica and attended Pembroke Hall Primary and High schools.
Kapri was introduced to the music via a talent showcase organised by dancehall artiste Mr G (aka Goofy) 12 years ago. In 2007, Kapri got favourable response with the release of his Dear Mama single on Seanizzle’s Creeper rhythm. The following year he migrated to the United States.
His other songs include Dark Glass, Anything, and Thug Love.
The deejay will be performing in the Cayman Islands next month, before jetting off to Canada on a promotional tour in late May. Summer will see him performing alongside Spice and Busy Signal at the Reggae Rotterdam festival in the Netherlands.
