Introducing Dancehall Music’s super talented and most outlandish artist, PRITTI SHU, hailing from Huntley Castle, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica West Indies!
PRITTI SHU’s love for music and the expression of thought drives his desire to create. He began his music career in 2012 when he recorded his first track, “High Roller” at DownSounds Records in Kingston, Jamaica. For the next ten years SHU would continue to develop his sound while making a big name for himself in the local street dance circuit in Jamaica.
SHU’s capability to blend his unique melodies over a variety of riddims to compose different genres of music sets him apart from the rest. “My music and the melodies I possess are very versatile and my image is one-of-a-kind. I am the ‘Melody-Genie‘ and I haven’t heard any Deejay with my sound as yet. My style of Dancehall music can mesh with R&B, Pop or Afro-Beats sounds. Each song carries a different vibe.”
He is a man of many talents. Besides being a Deejay, he is also a music producer, commercial model and an entrepreneur, serving as CEO of his company, Essential Construction, LLC. “I take pride in all that I do. I have a love for making music and I am a skilled carpenter. I also dabble in modeling which is a fun hobby for me…after all I am PRITTI SHU! (Laughing) Whichever position seems to fit I’m ready for it. I make sure what needs to get done is done. In the end I want to make sure my team is happy and my family is secure.”
When asked what his views are on the current state of Dancehall music, SHU had this to say, “The quality of the music now compared to the quality of the music back in the 80’s and 90’s is definitely different. Today’s music is not as authentic. The beats are being modernized and the lyrics are not as potent, but they’re still deliverable. People still love our music and our culture despite what is being produced.”
SHU’s musical influences come from his personal experiences. He writes songs that his fans can relate to about life and how it impacts his family, friends and others in his surroundings. “The greatest challenge I face as an artist is getting my music on a platform broad enough to reach people from all walks of life. My sound brings good vibrations that people across the world need to hear!” Like his favorite artist, the late great BOB MARLEY, SHU spreads messages of love and consciousness through his music.
PRITTI SHU is busy working on his upcoming EP while producing music for fellow artists, building up his company and performing his latest track, “DISRESPECT“, for adoring fans. “I strive to be the best in whatever I do. I have two sons who look to me as a role model and I plan to show them the right way. I will continue to perfect my craft and create fantastic music for the world. In due time I will be the face of Dancehall Music and make an indelible mark on this industry. Only great things to come!”
