Notnice, the award-winning Billboard producer, has launched his first ‘non-riddim’ album. It was released in collaboration with global music distribution company, ONErpm.
The album, Kyng Midas, features 18 original tracks with some of dancehall’s top entertainers such as Sean Paul, Popcaan, Agent Sasco, Teejay, Bounty Killer, Dexta Daps, Rygin King and Jah Vinci. The album also features two new artistes, Nordia Mothersille and Natural Flames.
Notnice, whose given name is Ainsley Morris, said it was important for him to include new, young talent on the album and give them an opportunity to be featured alongside some of reggae and dancehall’s greats. Notnice, who previously distributed his music on his own, said he decided to partner with ONErpm so that up-and-coming artistes, producers and creatives could get access to the distribution company’s global network.
“A lot of times, Jamaican artistes and producers don’t know how to properly monetise their music. I’ve always distributed my own music, but the platform that ONErpm has created and the added support and benefits for not only me, as the producer, but for artistes themselves really sealed the deal for me in terms of this partnership. This is what we need in Jamaica; this is what the Jamaican music and entertainment industry needs. I’m excited to partner with them on this release, and I’m looking forward to what this will do for Jamaican entertainers,” Notnice said.
ONErpm is a distribution company that is dedicated to providing the infrastructure and personalised support for Jamaican artistes to manage and grow their business in a responsible and sustainable manner. The company has promised to make distribution easy so that artistes can focus on making great music.
“This launch is meant to highlight Notnice’s new album, Kyng Midas, as well as ONErpm’s new presence in Jamaica. ONErpm is excited about this expansion and new focus on Caribbean music, to join our other 18 offices around the world,” said Martin Price, ONErpm’s director for Jamaica and Latin America.
“We want to educate the creators in Jamaica on how to improve their distribution and income, as well as give new and aspiring creators and artistes an easy outlet to distribute their content with our do-it -ourself platform,” Price added.
