he key to success for any entertainer is reinvention and quality music. Although music taste is subjective, the common thread of quality will always succeed albeit be a commercial hit or not. That train of thoughts is what Future Fambo claims for the new year. Evolve and Rebirth!
Since his entry in the musical scene, Future Fambo scored various hits such as the chart-topper Kung Fu and remained constant through the years while connecting with newer generations through positive songs and party anthems Drunken Dance, Rum and Red Bull featuring Grammy award winner Beenie Man and This Life among many others. But to fans of the artist and music lovers it seemed as if Fambo took a musical hiatus.
“Well I have been touring extensively in the states and other countries around the world both independently and also with the King Beenie Man. I may have been out of sight in Jamaica but I have been working on my craft and image while out of the Jamaican Diaspora. This is a new me physically, mentally and creatively, I have been recording for top local producers such as Seanizzle, UIM, Richieloops and also a few upcoming overseas producers. The foundations has been set so now its time to step out and make the moves and get the movement up and running. I am also happy to tell my fans that I have also recently signed a 1 album deal with american based indie label “Blaze Entertainment Records Inc” which is a big deal for me because this is my first ever album, so you will definitely be seeing more of #BrandFambo in the mix.” stated the reggae/dancehall star.
Signing an album deal is a great feat for any artist, but for Future Fambo a veteran of music, this concurrence will be his first studio length album. In a statement to the media, Blaze Entertainment CEO explained the decision to work with Fambo “In this day and age of music its all about the unexpected to be the expected. Fambo voice is like non other and for years it has been one of the best kept secret on a global scale not just dancehall. Yes he has hits under his belt but with such a voice and likable spirit and energetic stage presence, all he need is that guidance to turn him into a legitimate global star/icon/legend. I said to myself, Fambo has so many songs out and has had so many hits and has never produced a EP, mixtape or a album so I decided to approach him with the idea of a joint venture. It took us 3 years to actually get to really sit and have a man to man convo about business and just lifestyles and struggles and it was basically a wrap after that. As for the album this its a new Fambo, no more drunkingmaster image, no more playing around this is a more mature, grown and sexy type image for ladies want him and fellas want to be him. Swag and everything way up. His sound is revamped, his entire style is revamped I guess we can officially say a full fledged make over. The album features Jamaican producer, richie loops, american producer Magnedo7- produced for Eminem, Jay Z, 50cent and many more, also american producer Blahzae and many more. It is slated to be release sometime in April we are still figuring out dates. But the singles are def about to start picking up steam. “Bloodclaute Song & One more Time”
2 lead tracks were recently released in anticipation of the album, “Bloodclaute Song” for the streets, and “One More Time” a friendly radio hit. The feedback has been very positive both locally and internationally and will garner a video to be shot on location in New York while Fambo is there headlining the “Be True, Be You” benefit concert.
“It is one of my greatest inspirations to know that I am from the same parish as greats like Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Shabba Ranks. I aspire to leave a legacy as they
While the musical fans recognize Future Fambo as Mr. Rum & Redbull, the man born as Warren Gladstone Williams, is extremely proud of the fact that he hails from the “Garden Parish” of St. Ann, along with some of the most iconic legends of Jamaican culture. Growing up his talent shined immediately, by the age of eight a young Future Troubles (as his was known) began performing for local meetings. By his teen years vocal talent gave way to physical and saw him as a member of the dance group “Crazy Boys”. As childhood passion gave way to a viable livelihood, Future Troubles evolved into Future Fambo turning his hobby into a career.
From his first hit “Iya Iya Hoo” (fashioned after a Jackie Chan movie), Future Fambo realized his knack for creating that perfect high energy song that’s easy to grasp yet exciting enough to incorporate dancing. This combination has made Future Fambo one of the few sustainable Dancehall acts over the last few decades. 2010 saw a groundbreaking revitalization within the grasp of Dancehall, one particular riddim and song tapped into that energy. Fambo’s mega crossover hit “Rum and Redbull” featuring Beenie Man, produced by Seanizzle. Future Fambo was able to keep the party flowing with follow up singles like “Wedding Crasher” (w/ Sean Paul), “Faded”, “Drunken Dance” and “Swaggin” (featuring Wayne Marshall & Tifa). While Fambo has worked or collaborated with just about everyone in the Dancehall genre from producers to artist, his creativity and seasoned artistry affords him many opportunities to create with a variety of production houses to date. Recent releases include singles from Seanizzle, Kapa Shanti and UIM Records.
In August 2014, Fambo inked a deal with US based label, “Blaze Entertainment Records”, which has set out to produce and release Future Fambo’s debut album “Evolve – The Uprise”. Through Blaze Ent, Fambo’s album will see production from Grammy winning producer Magnedo 7, Richie Loops, Blahzae, Stylez and Sisco Kennedy. While the album awaits an official 2015 release date, it’s receiving rave reviews from industry tastemakers such as Atlantic Records own Mike Keran and Dancehall gatekeepers. Premiere singles “Bloodclaute Song” and “One More Time” will mark the promotional launch for “Evolve – The Uprise”. So if “Rum and Redbull” is Future Fambo’s current legacy, just sit back and have one more as he journeys to legendary.
