SUBHEAD: Event ticket sales spike since release of provocative 'Intro' video

One week after he broke the Internet with the release of a short film for his debut album, 'Intro', which has racked up almost a million views on youtube, dancehall sensation Dexta Daps is heading stateside to be a headline performer/host of Oracabessa BLISS, the newly minted 'All white, All inclusive, Premium Day Party,' that takes place on Memorial Monday, May 29 at the Eisenhower Park, Nassau County in Long Island, NY.

"We have definitely seen a surge in ticket sales and calls to outlets since the release of his latest video" said Irie Jam CEO Bobby Clarke.

"New York is buzzing and fans are excited to see him perform here," Clarke disclosed.

The 12-track project was produced by DASECA Productions with guest spots by Alaine and Blakkman.

Daps' popularity has soared stateside since he emerged on the scene with his dancehall anthem, 7eleven, which became a staple on reggae charts globally. His follow up hit, Shabba Madda Pot - an ode to the mother of dancehall Emperor Shabba Ranks, was another chart banger that is still burning up the airwaves in the tri-state area.
