about the artist

..If you saw me today you are never gonna forget me..my hair, my clothes, my style..I..m crazy man, I..m the Energy God..Father of the Dancehall.... - Elephant Man ..A true entertainer is versatile and makes music for the world,.. says Elephant Man in his rough Jamaican baritone. His boisterous demeanor, quick chatting lyricism and unforgettable stage presence have all helped transform this Seaview Gardens local deejay into an internationally recognized reggae phenomenon. Elephant Man..s music has brought a new innovative flavor to the dancehall. His free-spirited vibration leaves you eager to do nothing less than let loose and party, making it blatantly evident that Ele..s mission is to create energy infused music that everyone can enjoy. Elephant Man stormed through the doors of dancehall back in 1998 under the wing of Bounty Killa and the Scare Dem Crew (Boom Dandimite, Harry Toddler, Nitty Kutchie and Elephant Man) flexing his creative muscles while managing to successfully brand himself as ..Father Elephant,.. the self proclaimed Dancehall King. Elephant Man is solely responsible for reuniting dancehall music with dance and its fun, trouble-free roots, a vital element that..s been absent from the culture and replaced too often by a new wave of artists who glorify a bad mon, bad mind persona in their records. His debut, Good 2 Go (VP Records), became a worldwide smash back in 2004 with the release of chart topping party tunes like ..Signal di Plane.. and ..Pon di River, Pon di Bank,.. the single which snagged him a Source Award for ..Dancehall/Reggae Artist of the Year.. and the MTV2 nomination at the 2004 MTV Music Video Awards. Since then, the hardcore Energy God hasn..t slowed down. He has recorded collaborations with Lil.. Jon on the ..Get Low Remix,.. R. Kelly on ..Reggae Bump Bump,.. Pitbull and Daddy Yankee on the ..Rah-Rah Remix,.. and Janet Jackson on ..All Nite (Don..t Stop),.. and also performed on stage at the 2004 BET Awards and signed with Diddy..s Bad Boy Records, all while preparing for the release of his sophomore album Let..s Get Physical (Bad Boy/VP Records). Ele linked up with Diddy back in 2005 while opening for Usher on his Truth Tour. When Ele hit the stage with an electrifying performance, the Bad Boy CEO took notice. ..When he saw my performance he was like ..Yo, Elephant, we got to do this and I was ready,.. says Bad Boy..s first reggae act. Never abandoning VP, the label that nurtured and supported Ele from the beginning, Elephant Man is excited about his major label joint venture (Bad Boy/VP Records) and looking forward to making dancehall history with Sean Combs and the entire Bad Boy family. ..I been a fan of Bad Boy for the longest time and now I..m Bad Boy for life!,.. Ele laughs. ..We gonna take dancehall to another level. I..m looking forward to dropping this album and the doing all the promotion, cuz Diddy is creative, and with him and the Energy God together..It..s gonna be madness!.. ..Right now this album is driving me crazy, I got too much hit songs,.. Ele says of the new album. Elephant Man collaborates on Let..s Get Physical with musical genius Wyclef on the first single ..Five-0,.. and also enlists the help of Swizz Beatz on ..Jump... Rhianna makes an appearance on ..Throw Your Hands Up,.. and Shaggy adds his brand of Caribbean flavor to ..The Way We Roll Remix... With Let..s Get Physical, Elephant Man delivers a well-balanced dancehall collectable, something expected from a man whose childhood neighbor and hero was the legendry Shabba Ranks. In stores August 2007, Let..s Get Physical fuses crazy, sexy, gangsta and party tunes with lyrics that speak of the social ills and violence plaguing the people of Jamaica. Ele gets serious this time around on tracks like ..You Can Make It.. offering hope and refuge to ghetto youth worldwide. ..The ghetto teaches you how to be a strong man. You learn in a split second how important it is to make the right moves..making the wrong ones can cost you your life,.. says Ele while reminiscing about the struggle, ..Elephant Man.. born O..Neal Bryan, survived growing up in Kingston Jamaica. His notorious dance anthems cascade throughout the record. ..Father Elephant,.. formerly introduces Ele to the world as the new Dancehall King. ..I..m the one who change the dancehall with the dancing..I..m the one that made people Log On, Get Jiggy and Signal di Plane..I..m the father for that now,.. explains an animated Elephant Man, penning the Scoobie Doo dance to this witty high energy song. Ele chats to the ladies on sexy ballads like ..Gayl Bruck.. and the albums title track, ..Let..s get Physical,.. while paying tribute to slain dancehall icon, Bogul, on ..Willie Bounce,.. a fast-paced Energy God version of Gloria Gaynor..s ..I Will Survive... On ..Ova Di Wall,.. Ele sings, bad mon run but informers gonna crawl/ bad mon put ya AK over di wall...explaining, ..This is for the hardcore dancehall fans, fi di ones who love dancing. When you..re in the dancehall and its getting wild.. you..re telling everyone to put them hands in the air but in Jamaica we say ..over di wall... That..s a dancing style where you put ya hands in the air like you..re in the military holding an M16 doing drills... ..Gangster Rock.. brings the album a slightly different flavor. While most of Ele..s dancing tunes are jump up, speedy, sweat drenching sing-a-longs, ..Gangster Rock.. is for the real bad mon who are not dancers and refuse to dance. ..I said I..m gonna make everyone of dem dance..so im like ..everybody fi ya do gangsta.. rock now....you just lean back like a gangsta.. and do a simple gangsta.. rock... Evidence that Elephant Man makes music that everyone can enjoy
