Jamaica Observer / Kalado is currently on tour in Europe. The tour, which kicked off in early April, is expected to end in the first week of May. The deejay spoke about the progress he has made so far.
‘The tour is going smooth thus far. Promoting my music and enhancing my brand is very important to me, so when the opportunity arises for me to go out to the world, I try to capitalise on it,” he said.
The tour will cover several countries, including Finland, Germany, Austria and France.
This is not the first time that Kalado will be in that neck of the woods.
‘The fans in Europe have always been supportive of my career and I can’t thank them enough for the love that they’ve always shown to me,” he said.
Kalado (given name Eton Gordon) recently signed with New York-based Donsome Booking Agency, which is operated by Adrian “Donsome” Hanson.
‘This is my first time signing with an agent. I think Donsome can do much on the international platforms, step things up and take some pressure off me. He’s the person I heard of who’s serious on his work and makes sure things happen, not just sit and wait for artiste to make it happen and then reap like others. I have known him for a while and he came recommended by a good friend of mine,” Kalado shared.
Originally from the Maxfield Avenue area in Kingston, Kalado moved to Clarendon where he attended Edwin Allen High school. After relocating to Kingston, he pursued his musical ambitions and joined the Bounty Killer-led Alliance Next Generation.
Among his chart-topping hits are Personally, Good Good Bring Life, and Make Me Feel.
His current singles are Carry On (produced by Kog Productions) and Castigate (a joint venture between Kog Productions and Budja Records).
