Kingston based record label DZL Records has given the world music to move to, to learn from, and to hold a vibe. Dale Virgo‘s founded establishment has assisted in the careers of D.A. Jay, Christopher Martin, Chronixx, LatyKim, Saine, and many others. While DZL’s releases tend to connect with the listener in various ways, their upcoming project, 420/1 looks to take the listener to a “higher” place.
With nine tracks on board, the 420/1 project looks to celebrate the creativity of Jamaican artists, and recognize the yearly “420” event otherwise known as “Marijuana Day” on April 20. With Dale Virgo mastering the production behind the project, DZL Records affiliated artists Kim Nain, Keith Currency, Senita Mogul, Starr Dane, and Delando Colley all make contributions to the project along with fellow artists Anguesomo, Versi, and Ras Padam. With a great body of work that highlights and promotes the amazing herb, DZL Records promises that 420/1 will not only be a standout project for the “420” season, but one that is a contender as one of the year’s best. DZL Records looks forward to listeners making 420/1 the perfect soundtrack for their times of meditation, medication, and elevation.
DZL Records came into prominence in the 2010s and was founded by Dale Virgo. The label has been the home for releases from Scantana, Devin Di Dakta, and Ce’cile to name a few, and as a producer, Dale has worked with the likes of Rihanna, Drake, Chronixx, Agent Sasco, Christopher Martin, and many more. Notable hits from the label include, “Mama” by Christopher Martin, “Goodie Goodie” by Scantana, “Soldier Love” by Ikaya, and “Somewhere” by Chronixx.
