Cashflow records is gearing up to embark on its first tour as a record label. It is customary for recording artistes to go on tours to market their product, however, Cashflow Records is focused on international networking this year, and the tour is seen as the first step towards tapping into the international market.
As said by disc jockey and producer Cashflow DJ Neil, 2013 is about capturing the sky.
"This tour is not the first for Cashflow. We have been on tour in the past with Sojah which was a group with Konshens and his brother, but the difference is that this time we are not going with an artiste, we are going as the group Cashflow Records, the full package. For 2013, we are focused on putting in more work and this is an additional experience aside from touring with an artiste, so we are doing the sky," he said.
The tour will see the label utilising all its arms, ranging from production to juggling music at events.
"On this tour we will DJ, we have the sound thing going on and we have all the weekends booked so far. When we are not playing we will be doing production, recording, mixing and such. My brother Cashflow Xtreme will be there as well so he will be producing videos. So all the talents that Cashflow has will be exposed on the six-week tour, and the tour will last from the first week of February to the second week of March," DJ Neil said.
The record label has already confirmed five shows and is now bracing itself for the experience.
"We are going with an open mind and we have a team working with overseas. We are looking to do interviews on radio stations as well as play on radio stations, so we are definitely going to make a big statement," he continued.
"We hear about stories of mishaps that artistes endure on tours but we have our nerves in check and we are going with our eyes open. We are looking out for anything and everything and right now we are quite comfortable," he said.
The label's first stop will be the United Kingdom, the record label will be featured on events like Red & White - Affairs Of The Heart Aquarius & Pisces Link-Up on February 9 at Pardis Club; February 16, Luton; February 23, Bradford; and March 9, Club Da Boss Teacha's Pet.
Upon their return to Jamaica, the label will make preparations to go on two additional tours. One will see them travelling to Japan and the other will see them in Canada.
New rhythms will also be released like the Throwback and the Bell Foot rhythms.
