Oufah Music, Clifton ‘Specialist’ Dillon’s production and management company continues to make paradigm shifts in the music industry. With its most recent wave of breaking worldwide charts with recording artist OMI’s, chart topping singles “cheerleader” and “Hula Hoop”; the label is becoming known and anticipated to produce high quality hits after hits. To some in the music industry this might be of no surprise as Clifton ‘Specialist’ Dillon’s authentic template of building, directing and managing the musical careers of other well known artists has produced a portfolio of international successes comprising Grammy Awards, Billboards Awards, Platinum sales, Gold sales and millions in digital streaming and downloads.
Oufah Music is now working at the helm of the artist, Spiritual’s career – producing his first full length studio album ‘Awakening’ due for a early 2017 release on VP Records. So far the album’s leading singles ‘Time has Come’ and ‘Stand Up for Rasta’ are already making the rotations worldwide gaining positive feedback for the team.
In reviewing the outcome of this collaboration, veteran Journalist, John Masouri summarizes that, “Spiritual’s music transports us to another time, when reggae legends like Bob Marley first took the rebel sound of Jamaica to a worldwide audience. Authenticity can be heard in every note …”. He went on to give credence to the quality album produced “Under Specialist’s direction, Spiritual has been able to realise his musical vision at last, and deliver an album that can stand alongside the seventies’ classics that inspired him as a youth. There are traces of Burning Spear and Culture in his voice, whilst the songs hark back to an era when artists were judged on their integrity, both musical and otherwise.” Spiritual was raised in Allman Town, and sang there in his local choir before embracing Rastafari as his true calling. “I’m here to preach and to practise love to all people. Love is the cure for everything. Love makes you healthy and I’m convinced that one day, scientists will discover that it’s the basis of living, y’know? Because we should all be loving people, and that’s the key message in my music. It’s all about love and progress.” the artist reasons.
“It’s really been a pleasure to work with talent such as Spiritual”, said Specialist. ” He brings us back to an era of consciousness, of journeys foretold and I see it as our responsibility to not only chart our own futures but to preserve and give respect to the ones who’ve laid the foundation for artists like Spiritual to be heard.”
