Rising dancehall star Demarco has smashed through BBC’s music line up!
Demarco’s ‘Puppy Tail’ hit has been added to BBC 1Xtra’s playlist and its been put into daytime rotation, which means premium airtime. Demarco was thrilled saying:
“I am very happy and at the same time humbled by the announcement, this is another major stride for the Jamaican genre. Not many of our records make it to daytime radio on the BBC, as we are all aware, most of our music that is played on their radio is relegated to night-time programming, so to be among the selected few who accomplish such a feat is indeed something of note.”
Listen to ‘Puppy Tail’ below!

And this dancehall star just keeps rising! Demarco was recently in Brooklyn New York and Edmonton, Alberta headlining a pair of concerts and he’s got a new 30-track mixtape called “Bun Up Road” which he’s streaming live on his Facebook page.
Reggae artist Protoje has also been named on BBC 1xtra’s Hot for 2015 artist list. The singer’s recently released single “Stylin” and his hot hit “Who Knows” with fellow reggae artist Chronixx, will be added to the BBC platform, along with 14 other artists including Stormzy, Little Simz and George the Poet, to name a few. Protoje’s next album, “Ancient Future” comes out next year.
