With favourite artists such as Bob Marley & Shabba Ranks, Lantan found inspiration by hanging out in recording studios in Kingston Jamaica such as King Jammy’s Studio and at Sugar Minott’s Youthman Sound Promotions, who formed the first dancehall crew and featured the Nottinghill Carnival.

ACM Records released various albums including Truly Magical and Fusion by DJ Lantan and Jbmixx after they met and formed Black/Smith Productionz in 2007.

As well as his record sales, DJ Lantan featured on a UK TV talent show hosted by Fearne Cotton and judged by Jamie Cullum, Sharleen Spiteri and Dizzee Rascal called Must Be The Music. DJ Lantan’s song Facebook Love, performed at Hackney Empire, wowed the crowd and earned him Internet notoriety.

Priest J and DJ Lantan’s latest single “Handz In The Air” will be released on 27 July by Matchbox Recordings with distribution from Universal Music Operations.
