(New York, New York) Emerging producer, Romario ‘Romieikon’ English, is serving up a major dose of sexy on his recent Channel 28 Riddim release featuring Deeclef, Devin Di Dakta, Xx3eme, Kacique and Knaxx.
Cleverly explicit, the name of the project draws inspiration from Montego Bay's x-rated television station, and dropped on Valentine's Day.
Dedicating the entire project primarily to the ladies, and perhaps any 'gyalis', when asked what was the motivation behind the Riddim project, Romario stated “I strive to create music that is different and I am looking forward to breaking musical barriers with this release because it's a crossover between Reggae Contemporary and R&B, with Dancehall artistes delivering in a way their fans have never heard them before."
Other notable projects Romieikon has produced include Grammy nominee Spice's Rolling (2021), which celebrated its one year anniversary last week, with a milestone of approximately 5.5 million digital streams.
His Beat Zinc Fence Riddim (2021) has also garnered over one million digital streams while earning features from major music curators like Pandora, and Apple Music.
Deeclef's XXX entry on Channel 28 has already been picked up by various playlists on Boom Play: Hot Dance, Reggae Vibes, and Reggaeton Mix. Additionally, the song has received a cover feature on Pandora's Dancehall Now, and you can also find his track listed under Apple Music's Best New Songs list.
Full of surprises, Romieikon added Riddim 28 tracks in his arsenal, as well as visuals, slated for a March 4 release.
