Tetric presents SOUTH RAKKAS CREW @ The Button Factory this Wednesday...

South Rakkas Crew (US, FLORIDA) [SRC Entertainment Inc.]

Tetric presents the Back 2 School College party hosted by the dancehall heroes, South Rakkas Crew, straight from the Florida, US!

South Rakkas Crew (SRC) was founded by producer Dennis 'Dow Jones' Shaw in late 2002. After managing Riprock n Alex G Entertainment, Orlando's premier 'Pop' production house, Dow Jones teamed up with Alex G creating what is proving to be one of the hottest Dancehall and Electro music production teams today.

SRC gave the world Riddims like: Clappas, Red Alert, Bionic Ras, Chinkuzi, etc. They have produced Dancehall music's biggest artists including Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Bounty Killer, Capleton, Lady Saw, Mr. Vegas, Ce'Cile, Mr. Easy, Sizzla, T.O.K., and the list goes on. They have become known as Dancehall's most innovative producers, bringing a fresh new sound which the top European DJ's have titled Electro-Dancehall. Dow Jones has another alias, "King of the cut," given to him by some of Jamaica's biggest producers, for South Rakka's ability to 'chop up', and rearrange songs creating new and exciting mixes.

Although the team is based in Orlando Florida, they hail from Southern Canada. Growing up in Toronto, and Mississauga Ontario has given them an edge, explains Dow Jones. "I was born in Jamaica but grew up in Canada. Alex G and I grew up in a very multicultural environment. We have been exposed to many genres of music. At different times in our lives were were into Top 40, Reggae, Pop, Hip Hop, Disco, House, Dancehall, Bass, Freestyle, Dance, R&B, Jungle, New Wave, Rave, Rock, Salsa, Merengue, Electro., etc. This is what gives us our sound." This 'sound' has earned South Rakkas Crew high accolades in the remix world as well, and from a very eclectic list of artists, including: Bob Marley, Duran Duran, DJ Shadow, Lily Allen, Beck, T.O.K, Mr. Vegas, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Bounty Killer, T-Pain, R. Kelly, Twista, Good Charlotte, Shakira, Alicia Keys, and Chris Brown.
