Trojan Records would like to invite creators based in Jamaica, or Jamaican diaspora, to send your portfolios and showreels for future label projects.
Formed in 1968, Trojan Records is the world's most iconic Jamaican record label, launched as imprint of Island Records, with the likes of Desmond Dekker, the Maytals and Bob & Marcia all flying high on the British Pop charts as a result.
In the spring of 1971, Dave & Ansel Collins’ ‘Double Barrel’ provided Trojan its first UK number one, while further chart entries followed with hit singles by Bruce Ruffin, Greyhound and the Pioneers.
Aside from their overtly commercial output, the company also highlighted music by artists largely unknown outside Jamaica, many of which would later become major international recording stars – among these were Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs and a Kingston-based vocal trio called Bob Marley & the Wailers.
This is a location-specific brief and only applicants based in, or with the ability to travel to, Jamaica will be considered for this opportunity.
