Rudie Classic wants people to ‘move’
A wise philosopher once wrote that 'dance is the hidden language of the soul'.
Just ask talented dancehall deejay Rudie Classic who is revving up dancehall parties with his song Move, which invites partygoers to just get up and shake something.
"One of the most common things about human beings no matter race, creed, religion, or culture is that we like to dance. It is something that unites us. Dancing is my strong point, I loved dancing from a young age, and this dance pays homage to Mr Bogle, the king. I have been getting some good feedback on the song," he said.
The song was officially released last September. Move has gained in popularity and spawned its own dance. Rudie Classic will be releasing a video this month to promote the song.
The deejay is now taking advantage of the buzz around the song to attempt a bigger project, his debut EP.
"I have never done an album, but I have been recording a number of songs. So I am pushing towards an EP, which will feature at least seven songs," he said.
Rudie Classic grew up in the Callaloo Bed/Riverton areas before moving to Portmore. He started his music career while attending the Edith Dalton James High School.
He began to experiment with dancehall and recorded his first song, Hey Mummy, in 1999, for a label called Xcon Entertainment.
He visited several local studios as he fine-tuned his craft. He migrated in 1999 but always returned to Jamaica at least once a year.
"My fan base is growing, and the career a move from strength to strength," he said.
Rudie Classic is promoting other songs such as Feel the Vibe on the Blizzard Music label, Ruff Out Yah, and What's Popping Up in Here?
