ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Who are these Characters, Mahad Mahan ArtiCarlton T, every one has been talking about? Why are they so special? Are they that different from any other musical artists? Intriguing query to ponder. So what exactly is a Mahad Mahan or an ArtiCarlton T?

There is only "1 Mahad Mahan." Mahad Mahan is part of the duo "Mahad Mahan ArtiCarlton T." He is often mistaken for his brother ArtiCarlton T because of their similar characteristics. Mahad Mahan (77 minutes older than his identical twin ArtiCarlton T) was born in Spanish Town and raised in the hills of St. Catherine Jamaica. While his brother found an expressive voice in his homemade brand of melodic wailing, Mahad Mahan did not find his artist form until after he moved to New York, where at the age of 15, he began rapping. By the age of 18 he abandoned American style rapping and transferred his energy to the Jamaican dancehall inspired hard hitting genre of "deejaying". With a flamboyant sense of style and mastery over the art of improvisation Mahad Mahan honed his live performance skills on many major sound systems and holds a solid underground reputation as an unpredictable and exciting entertainer.

ArtiCarlton T was not born to sing. Unlike most vocalists, he did not grow up singing in church; he taught himself to crone while spinning records and honing his DJ skills in the late 80's & early 90's. While growing up in Jamaica, ArtiCarlton T was steeped in a caldron of lyrical potency. Coming of age on an island boiling with musical expressions of love, oppression and political tension took a hold of ArtiCarlton T and forced him to find a voice through which he could "express" himself in the genre that felt most natural. His "rootsie ragga" style is artistically ruff around the edges. Not knowing the words to songs made him the unique vocalist he is today, known for using expressive moans, wails and yodels to fill in lyrical blanks. He often refers to himself as the original "3/4 vocalist." Unlike most Jamaican vocalist who chooses to do American cover songs, ArtiCarlton T is quite an originator. He will write and sing a song about anything. Anything. His emotionally expressive lyrical agility captivates and entertains.

Mahad Mahan & ArtiCarlton T - after slowly establishing themselves as underground Reggae/Ragga/Roots/Dancehall artists these two natives of Jamaica are finally breaking out to the surface with their new release "Land of ME" on Jamaica Natural Records. These twin brothers are definitely out to grab your attention, showcasing their versatile talent and intellectual prowess as vocalists, lyricists and composers. Teaming up with veteran producers Alan 'EayGee' Gordon, Rankin Scroo and N4SA, their latest endeavor is sure to send shockwaves throughout the reggae and hip hop community. Universalizing the phrase "radical reggae," attributable to their unique interpretation of social topics, Land of ME will evoke thought as well as dialog and is a must have for all reggae and hip hop fans worldwide.
