Alandon to carry on King Tubby’s musical legacy


Up and coming dancehall artiste Alandon says he plans on carrying on the musical legacy started by his grand uncle, late sound engineer Osbourne ‘King Tubby’ Ruddock. 

“I want to be recognised as one of the greatest to ever do music.  I was born in music, music is in my blood,” Alandon explained.

Originally from the musical community of Waterhouse where the famed King Jammy’s studio is located, Alandon honed his musical skills from early on.

“I am an independent artiste who is very jovial and high energy with a melodic flow like water. I combine lyrics metaphor and punchline,” said Alandon.

He made his recording debut with Mama Don’t Cry, which was produced by Dirty Joker. Since then, he has continued to churn out songs produced by among others, producers such as Papi Don Music, Silent Addy, TJ Records, YVP, NS Music Enterprise, Crawba Productions and Thompson House Music. 

His latest single, Tightest, is featured on the Island Drip rhythm and produced by DJ Barkley for Barkley Productions and Flar3 Entertainment.  

“The song was inspired by a girl who was my side chick and who has now become the main girl in my life,” he shared. 

The official video for the new track features cameo appearances by dancehall artistes Konshens and Kemar Highcon.
