DASECA duo eyes chart comeback

july 17th,2013

SIX years after riding the Billboard charts with Serani’s No Games, sibling producers David and Craig Harrisingh are eyeing a comeback.

The Harrisinghs have some new releases by artistes on their DASECA Productions including deejay Bugle, and newcomers Sagitarr and Dexta Daps.

Serani’s hit song helped establish the label in 2007 with No Games which debuted at number 55 on Billboard’s R&B Hip/Hop charts.

The singer is no longer part of DASECA and according to Craig Harrisingh, the music business has changed since No Games hit.

“Things are different than when we started years ago, there is more music and artistes. We put out songs that we are comfortable with, not just because we are trying to get a hype,” he told the Sunday Observer.

No Games was a big statement for the Harrisingh boys, but it was not their first taste of success.

Two years earlier, they co-produced We Be Burning, one of the hit songs from Sean Paul’s multi-platinum album, The Trinity.

They also produced songs by Mavado, Bounty Killer, Tony Matterhorn, Bugle, Alaine and Vybz Kartel.

Bugle has been with DASECA since 2007, and is its flagship artiste. Singjay Sagitarr and deejay Dexta Daps recently came on board.

“They are very talented and dedicated; we are doing a lot of work with them in the studios. I’m confident that it won’t be long before both of them become household names in Jamaica,” said Craig Harrisingh, younger of the brothers.

Sagitarr’s I’ll Follow You and One Draw, and Mi Like A Gyal and Get High by Dexta Daps are among the latest releases from DASECA.

The Harrisinghs started the company just over 10 years ago with Craig Marsh. Two years later, the fledgling label got a shot in the arm with We Be Burning, followed by No Games.

Harrisingh argues that unlike five years ago, it is tough breaking upcoming acts overseas.

“There is so much talent being swept under the carpet…it is difficult for young acts. On the international scene no one cares about the artistes, it is the song that matters not the popularity of the entertainer,” he said.
