Steadily carving out a niche for himself, popular radio jock and Darkcide International selector Sunjock Calico continues to break new career boundaries. Come later this month the Suncity FM personality will embark on his first tour of the United Kingdom. The sojourn will see him making stops across the thoroughfares of Britain with his first assignment in South London followed by Oxford and Lewisham among other venues.
The inaugural concert set for April 17th features former Portmore Empire artiste Kim (formerly Gaza Kim) and resurgent deejay Pamputtae with SJ Calico as the headlining jock. The month-long tour will culminate in mid-May.
In a release to the media an elated Calico says, “I am looking forward to the tour, it will be a new frontier for me to conquer and the beginning of great things to come. So all U.K fans look out… the ‘Sunboss’ and Team Darkcide will be in the building.”
Meanwhile, at the recent launch of the 2014 Magnum Portmore Dancehall Awards in St. Catherine, SJ Calico also landed a nomination for ‘Selector Of The Year’ another first for the Portmore native. The award ceremony will unfold on Saturday, April 12th at Club Ntyce.
Since his emergence on the local music scene, Calico has unraveled his musical artistry at a plethora of high profile events namely: Appleton Treasure Island (A.T.I), Quad Night Club, VIV & Famous Night Club, Summer Bar-rage, Marco Polo, Magnum Container Satdayz, Stay Scheming, Altitude and Wet Sundays among others.
Calico’s steady rise to stardom could be attributed to his versatility and broad appeal. Not only is he a scholar and a graduate of the prestigious St. George’s College but a multifarious virtuoso who on any given day can be seen moving a large gathering via the radio waves; the garrisons of Kingston to the upper echelons of Jamaica; or simply repairing some intricate electronic circuitry at his home studio.
SJ Calico currently plays three weekly shift on Suncity 104.9FM // Mondays 6:00-9:00PM / Tuesday 10:00pm-2:00am / Fridays 10:00am-2:00pm
