Charan. A new name that has been circling the Reggae/Dancehall scene for a while now (known for th many productions he has done). One we can now finally connect a face to with his first music video ‘Graduation’.
The young Producer/Artist made the song right after he graduated from the Dutch national pop academy. He teams up with fellow Bosch Records Artist Fullanny who is already well known in the European scene for years now.
For the Music video he travelled to Surinam, South America where his roots lie. The song especially speaks to today’s youths, containing a positive message to live up to the saying ‘knowledge is power’.
Work hard. Play harder.
After his big break producing a song for Jamaican superstar Gyptian in 2012,
he started receiving airplay and exposure in Europe, U.S.A. and South America.
This sparked the attention of many Caribbean Artists/DJ’s, hence a steady production workflow was created.
The 26 year old Surinamese/Dutch Artist from Amsterdam fluctuated between multiple styles of beats,
but when he travelled to Jamaica in the summer of 2011 it was clear to him: Reggae music is the way to go.
“I stood at arms length from the mausoleum of Bob Marley when I realized what this music really meant to me, what one man can change in the consciousness of millions.”
Since his debut album in 2012 (Like A Bosch) he has already performed in France, Germany, Belgium
and all around his home country the Netherlands.
Charan is a real all-rounder. With his activities as a
Artist/Producer/Label Owner/Manager/Studio Engineer/Entertainer/Live booker
he lives up to his nickname ‘Charantula’.
His label ‘Bosch Records’ consists of Artists: Ashwin Jaydee, Fullanny and Brilliant Upgraded (Jamaica).
