Cop­per­shot ready for the grand Xplo­sion

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

Cop­per­shot’s DJ Supa Stylz says the sound sys­tem will be siz­zling hot when it plays at Rome­ich En­ter­tain­ment’s Mag­num Xplo­sion on De­cem­ber 14.

Slated for Mel­bourne Cricket Oval in Kingston on De­cem­ber 14, Mag­num Xplo­sion will not only see live per­for­mances from Ding Dong, Ai­do­nia, Spice, Go­vana, Tee­jay, Agent Sasco, and oth­ers, but will be punc­tu­ated by mixes from Ja­maica’s finest se­lec­tors, in­clud­ing Bishop Es­co­bar, DJ Ants­man and Boom Boom.

“You don’t get to be­come one of dance­hall’s most pop­u­lar sound sys­tems by be­ing afraid of a big line-up. That is some­thing that ac­tu­ally mo­ti­vates us. You don’t build the kind of rep­u­ta­tion we have by shy­ing away from things. We know dance­hall, and we are pre­pared for what­ever mood the au­di­ence comes with. We’re en­ter­tain­ers, and Ja­maica knows this,” said Supa Stylz.

BIG EVENT

Tipped to be one of the largest events this sea­son, Mag­num Xplo­sion is over­flow­ing with heavy hit­ters, a feat DJ Supa Stylz says it owes to a good rep­u­ta­tion.

“Mag­num Tonic Wine is very pop­u­lar in dance­hall, and pa­trons as­so­ciate the name with a good time. As a se­lec­tor or artiste, when you hear that Mag­num is a part of the show or event, it’s al­most a dream come true be­cause you ex­pect a cer­tain level of qual­ity and good vibes,” he said.

Mag­num Xplo­sion is among sev­eral book­ings for the nine­mem­ber sound sys­tem.

“We’ve been in the busi­ness for 24 years; it will take a lot more than mul­ti­ple book­ings to over­whelm Cop­per­shot sound. The Christ­mas sea­son brings work; peo­ple search for en­ter­tain­ment, and pro­mot­ers step up to fill the gap, so sound sys­tems step up as well. As for us, we bring our A-game to ev­ery sin­gle event, it doesn’t even mat­ter what team mem­bers are there,” said Stylz.
