Kingston based Record label DZL Records has been one of the institutions that has released quality music over the years. Founded by Producer Dale “Dizzle” Virgo, the label has been behind the releases of hit singles by Christopher Martin, Jahvinci, Chronixx, Kim Nain, Delando Colley, Ce’cile, and many others. The label looks to take things to another level with their recent partnership with International Music Distributor, AWAL.
Short for “Artist Without A Label”, AWAL is considered an alternative to the traditional music label. A division of Kobalt Music Publishing, AWAL provides global music distribution, A&R services, Promotions, Public Relations, and many others, and is at the forefront of technology, empowering artists, and driving transparency across the industry. DZL Records is one of the first Jamaican Record labels to take advantage of this partnership, and “Goodie Goodie” by Scantana is the first release through it.
DZL Records has been enjoying a successful 2020 thanks to their many music releases. Singles that have been circulating include Starr Dane’s “Talk Dem A Talk”, Laty Kim’s “Gi State”, Ce’cile’s “Occupied”, Delando Colley’s “Blaze It Up” featuring Dale Virgo, and Starr Dane’s “Urgency (State Of Emergency)” featuring Dale Virgo and Scantana. On the production side, Dale Virgo lent his sound to Bounty Killa and Agent Sasco’s “Freedom”, Tanaania’s “Boss” featuring Ce’cile, and handled mixing and mastering for Popcaan’s long awaited “Fixtape” project. In addition to music releases this year, DZL Records launched their “Riddim Saturdays” online series, and looks to cover more ground with their “Upful Vibes” Podcast series which is currently streaming on Spotify, Apple Podcasts.
