Bahraini DJ releases worldwide single

Following years of work in the local and international music scene, a popular Bahrain-based DJ has made strides in the music industry by releasing a world-wide single with a Romania-based record label. 

The crowd-favourite Bahraini DJ, Abdulla Almuharraqi, known widely by his stage name DJ Jackson recently launched the catchy music single,Your Body, through the record label, Cat Music. “The completion of the project has taken close to a year and we’re extremely happy with and proud of the results. Cat Music is Eastern Europe’s hottest pop music label and has several worldwide partners in the music industry, meaning that the track will reach a whole other level,” said DJ Jackson.The track, which was spearheaded by said DJ Jackson, is a bouncy fusion of reggaeton and EDM, and also features musicians: Carlprit and Kazz also known as Mr. Boomslang. “The music video for Your Body was shot at the beach-side nightlife venue, Coral Bay, here in the Kingdom of Bahrain during the 2018 Formula One Gran Prix,” stated said DJ Jackson. 

The video features a rich cast of people from all walks of life including models from Spain, Venezuela, Colombia and Ukraine. “There’s also a guest appearance from the Arabian socialite and big screen diva, Shaima Sabt, who holds an impressive Instagram following of one million plus followers all located in and around the GCC, and of course German and UK-based Zimbabwean acts Carlprit and Kazz,” he said.

The single’s official music video garnered over 35,000 views, in the first three days, on Cat Music’s official Youtube channel, which currently has over 5 million subscribers spread across the world. “The track has also been played on local (Radio Bahrain 96.5 FM) and international radio stations,” he said.”We’ve had feedback from listeners all around the world, from the Middle East all the way to Hawaii,” he added. 

Since the launch of the single, said DJ Jackson has signed on to DJ for a full season in Ibiza, which is widely considered to be one of the best electronic dance capitals of the world. “My next step is to finish the next single which I am currently working on, while I prepare for a Europe tour this summer,” he said.“This is definitely a great development for the music industry in Bahrain and I hope all the listeners here enjoy it,” he concluded.
