Cutting-edge and highly creative, the profound TROYTON RAMI first began his career in music as a producer, and has since then made an unforgettable mark upon the international music scene. This innovative entrepreneur has not only attained multiple prestigious music awards but was also responsible for founding Black Shadow Records, a well-respected, hit-producing music label based in Miami, Florida.
As a songwriter and producer his skills won him the highest accolades a musician can receive; Grammy Awards for Sean Paul’s Dutty Rock album and the genre-bending Multi-Platinum selling hit, “Gimme The Light”. His work on this particular album and song also earned him and Black Shadow Records an ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Award for writing and publishing. In addition, the International Reggae and World Music Awards named him the 2002 Producer of the Year.
After that hit-record on his Buzz Riddim paved the way for Sean Paul to be signed and become a world recognized mainstream artist, Troyton aspired to reach even further heights musically. In the years that followed, he composed and produced on popular albums like Good 2 Go for dancehall star Elephant Man, while the eclectic performer was signed to P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records; produced and wrote with Salaam Remi on Kevin Lyttle’s Turn Me On album, which eventually went gold; as well as composed and produced on multiple top-selling compilations albums like Reggae Gold, Strictly Dancehall, and Strictly The Best.
Rami’s resume also includes lauded songs featuring chart-topping international artists such as, Shontelle & Beenie Man, Wayne Wonder (of No Letting Go album fame), Lady Saw, Mr. Vegas, and Tanto Metro & Devonte, in addition to the highly acclaimed reggaeton/dancehall smash “Flow Natural” on which he worked with Luny Tunes, Tito El Bambino, Beenie Man and Ines. He followed up those hits with production and songwriting credits alongside Scott Scorch on Beenie Man’s top-selling Undisputed album.
In fact 2004 was truly a milestone year for him, since Universal Music Publishing signed him as a producer/songwriter that very year. Meanwhile, beloved Grammy winning songwriter, Desmond Child, who has written for Katy Perry, Clay Aiken, Bon Jovi, and Aerosmith, also recruited Troy to produce music with him from 2004 to 2006.
In recent years Troyton has expanded his musical reach to create new music with world-renowned artists Robyn, the Bloody Beetroots, along with Tego Calderón & Buju Banton that pushed all boundaries, melding Reggae with Rock beats and Latin rhythms, crafting a truly unique World Music Sound. He also produced and co-wrote “Cobrastyle” performed by the Teddybears & Mad Cobra, which was used, on the movie soundtracks for Employee of the Month, and King Kong, as well as in the FIFA 06 & Forza Motorsport 2 video games, in a Kia Car Commercial and also as the official theme song for The 2006 WWE Summerslam.As a person who believes in giving back and sharing all that he has learnt in his long and illustrious career, it was with great pleasure Troy joined with fellow Grammy winning music producer Rudy Perez, award winning producer and songwriter Mark Hudson, and pioneer in music technology David Frangioni to work with upcoming artists in the Inspire & Develop Artists Educational Program, IDA. This work has led to the successful launching of quite a few multiple genre careers.
At present Rami is completing work on the Baha Men’s long awaited latest full-length album, on which he has worked from inception to its soon completion, with an expected release date of April 2014. He is also in studio working with Sony Music alongside the Baha Men on the single “Night and Day” for the upcoming 2014 World Cup Soundtrack. In the midst of all of this, under his label Black Shadows Records, his newly signed artist Elisa Polanco has just completed a sure hit song with the internationally loved band, Third World.
With all of this experience, these multiple accolades, and the kind of sought after musical ability that continuously inspires those around him, Troyton Rami has surely proved without a doubt to be a talent the no lover of music could ever ignore.
