Mr Lexx to roll back the years at Mag­num Xplo­sion

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT THE WEEKEND STAR -

Vet­eran dance­hall DJ Mr Lexx is one of the pi­o­neers of the ‘90s dance­hall sound. A true mav­er­ick in his own right, Mr Lexx, whose given name is Christo­pher Ge­orge Palmer, has re­mained a sta­ple on the lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional dance­hall scene.

The mul­ti­award-win­ning artiste is among an im­pres­sive ros­ter of lo­cal acts con­firmed for Mag­num Tonic Wine’s Mag­num Xplo­sion Stage Show se­ries grand fi­nale, the cur­tain closer to an al­most year-long cam­paign for the brand. Other con­firmed acts in­clude Ding Dong, Ai­do­nia, Go­vana, Spice, and Sasco.

Mr Lexx, who promises to de­liver a per­for­mance noth­ing short of epic, said that true dance­hall fans would be served a taste­ful re­minder of the early 2000s but should ex­pect some new work as well.

“Mu­sic is con­stant, so while I plan to please the fans with the hits they know and love, I will be bring­ing some new en­ergy as well. The work never stops, and ev­ery per­for­mance will re­flect that. Stage show a go get shell,” said Mr Lexx.

Lexx, who be­lieves hav­ing years of ex­pe­ri­ence works in his favour, said: “Dance­hall is full of new tal­ent. Ev­ery day, there is an­other artiste or some­one some­where mak­ing mu­sic, but ex­pe­ri­ence is a plus for me. I’ve been do­ing this for years and do­ing it all over the world, so I’m no stranger to this, and ev­ery­body knows that.”

Known for his the­atri­cal per­for­mance style and ten­dency to en­gage fe­male fans, Mr Lexx said that he’s all about pleas­ing the women.

Pop­u­lar songs Cook, Let Those Mon­keys Out, and Taxi Fare fea­tur­ing Mr Ve­gas, ini­tially seemed to have rubbed some women the wrong way.

“The ladies know it’s all good, and I’m def­i­nitely per­form­ing for my fe­male fans. Mu­sic is art and art mim­ics life. It’s the re­al­ity that some women can’t cook. My mu­sic is re­al­ity, but it’s all for fun, not to of­fend any­one,” he added.

Mag­num Xplo­sion is slated for Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14, at the Mel­bourne Cricket Club in Kingston.
