BUGLE

Recording artiste and songwriter Bugle easily stands out in the very crowded dancehall fraternity. With timeless lyrics and songs that play on the emotions of listeners, Bugle’s catalogue isn’t one that can be easily dismissed. One of the frontrunners of the DASECA Production label, Bugle’s soulful voice has been on fixture on the airwaves since 2007. Born Roy Thompson, he was introduced to music from an early age by his now deceased brother. However it was in 2000 that would begin his professional journey when he met international dancehall artiste Elephant Man where he would later pen a number of hits for the self styled Energy God. Songs including Doh featuring Serani, Love Reigns featuring reggae singer Tarrus Riley, What Have I Done to You, Journey, Supremacy, Scotch Bonnet, Pearly Gates and Summer Break featuring Chevaughn and Razz and Biggy kept Bugle’s name on the musical radar for an extended period. Apart from the Daseca production team, Bugle has worked with a number of producers including TJ Records, Chimney, CR203, Notice, and Frass Records among others. Performance wise, Bugle has toured Japan, the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. “Nuh Compatible” has already been released as a single and is also featured on VP’s Ragga Ragga Ragga among a slew of dancehall knockouts. The track was met with favourable reception and secures Bugle’s prominence in the competitive dancehall arena. The album’s other single “Infidelity” does the same, but this time the musician calls on dancehall veteran Marion Hall for greater emphasis.
