Dem fi Know” is the fifth single from Cool Up Records, this time with the powerful voice of Virtus, one of the most prolific artists in the Reggae scene in Italy. The song is a “killer tune” with shades of Rub a Dub and Dancehall of the 90s, in which Virtus shows us an impeccable style using his vocal versatility and talent. This track is a proof of the freshness that characterize the sound of Cool Up Records. About the name and the topic of the song, Virtus insists us on “letting them know what his lifestyle is, his passion for Dancehall music and encourages people who think twice to shout loudly and dance”.

This song is just a sneak peek of what would be the Virtus’ new EP alongside Cool Up Records. How it is fequent, the illustration has been made by the authentic and original Mr John Vanilla.

The love to the music, the happiness and the positivity are some of the topics that Payoh SoulRebel sings demonstrating mastery and elegance, through his excellent voice..

The album includes two songs featuring some of the most appealing singers in the Seville’s reggae scene,Tunelon Iration and Burian Fyah.
