Production duo Mario Campbell and Kamal Bankay (Mario C x Bankay) are set to make their joint debut through a track titled Into You, featuring Ch4se. The track, a combination of dancehall and moombahton stylings, infuses a nostalgic dancehall element with a modern electronic tropical house sound. It was released on all digital platforms on October 9.

The effort, an extension of the artistic creativity of both Mario C and Bankay, is an addition to the duo’s production catalogue. Both producers have seen success through individual projects. Mario C has had seven number-one singles and 12 top 20 songs on the local charts. Bankay’s last production, a remake of Bob Marley’s Could You Be Loved, performed by his daughter Cedella Marley, was also an international success.

Both have shared the stage with acts such as Diplo, Busta Rhymes, Khaled, Major Lazer, Bounty Killer, and Drake, among others.

“We’re creating music that will inspire the younger generation to get in touch with and continue to propel our signature dancehall sound in new and energetic ways, pushing it even further around the world. We aim to bridge various elements of different genres to create a well-rounded dynamic style,” said Bankay.

Mario C x Bankay are aiming to be the duo to watch as they strive to build out and extend their catalogue of international chart toppers.
