Dancehall artiste Serebral is generating a buzz on the local dancehall scene with his ultra-sexy debut song, ‘Whine Slow’.
“It surprise me a bit how well it is doing in markets such as London and countries in Africa. The feedback has been amazing in Jamaica, and every selector on the New York dancehall scene is playing it, so it’s a great look,” the artiste whose real name is Jermaine Siddo, said.
The slow-burner ‘Whine Slow’ was produced by Dre Tegs Production, and released in November 2020 on all digital download platforms. It has slowly gained momentum thanks to a network of selectors who have added the song to their playlists.
” I just want to big up ZJ Ice from Zip FM, Courtney Mac from IRIE FM, the man dem from HITZ FM, DJ Jobis from Vybz FM from Gambia, Peanut from Suncity, Spready Glory, Lava Sound and Laugh Boss in New York…dem really heling to buss this song,” he said.
Serebral is so pleased with the positive feedback that he will be bankrolling a video this month.
“The video is in progress. I just want to big up everyone who has been supporting Serebral no matter what part you play, bless up to Diamond from Stone Love, Cinemax Sound, Fire Blacks, big up all my fans in England, Canada, all over and to everyone who is a music lover,” he said.
He grew up in Rose Town in the Kingston 13 area where he attended St. Andrew Primary, and then St. Andrew Technical High school where he was a teenage football star who represented the school at the Manning Cup level. After high school, he played for Boys Town under-21, and represented Whitfield Town and Real Mona FC in the Major League.
He migrated to live in the United States in 2009 where he entered the professional soccer league where he had stints at Oceanside FC, Rosedale FC and Fury FC in New York.
He got into construction where he worked for several years before deciding that he wanted to do music. Serebral is excited to walk the path of his musical journey, and wants to hopefully release an EP in the Summer of 2021.
“I’m currently working on an EP which will feature about 6 to 8 songs. I still haven’t chosen a name as yet but this EP will reflect my journey from Rose Town to the USA and sum up all my experiences,” he said.
He is also promoting other projects, the latest of which is another single, ‘Good By Herself’, which was released by Bossie Music in January 2021.
