Dancehall artist Jafrass will release his debut EP titled Faith this Friday (August 20) on NotNice Records. The 8-track EP will feature collaborations with Nordia Mothersille, Jah Vinci and Squash.
“Well Nordia is a part of the Jah Vinci team, plus me an Jah Vinci have a great chemistry from (If They Know) so having him on the EP made sense, and I know that’s something the fans will be looking out for,” Jafrass said in a release. “Squash a me fam from long time, done know the wul a we a Mobay youth. So me reach out to him tell him me have a song pon the EP weh me a hear him pon, him say send it and that’s how we get House Party”.
According to the release, Jafrass‘ professional career started when he serendipitously was introduced to producer NotNice, to whose imprint label he later signed. He recorded his debut single, Floss Boss on NotNice’s Detox Riddim. “From them Time until now a just history,” Jafrass said.
Jafrass added that he is influenced by the creativity and delivery of the legendary Jimmy Cliff and the Worl’ Boss Vybz Kartel, but it was an unlikely ally that encouraged his artistry. “My grandmother would drink rum on occasions and when she was feeling it, she would always call me to deejay for her; she was my first fan!” he said.
The Faith EP “is the perfect soundtrack to a still-unfolding talent ready to be heard in his fullness,” according to the release. “Each song have a different message, the EP doesn’t really have one feel, it’s more like different sides of me, there are girls songs, Conscious songs and street songs. The title of the EP is self explanatory, it came from the fact that so many times I felt like giving up but faith brought me this far an me firm, that is also why it is the lead single,” Jafrass explained.
