One In Ten

“After years of honing his craft under the moniker of Shy Rock (with Gotcha!, Amo-Lab and solo), Maikal X truly became a household name as the lead singer for the bestselling Dutch Hip Hop Reggae group: ‘Postmen’. After three Postmen albums, Maikal X decided to continue his career as a solo Reggae artist. Maikal X has a unique sound with a raspy yet warm vocal tone. Aside from his singing abilities, he is also a highly respected Hip Hop artist and is considered one of the best MC’s in Holland, Belgium and the Dutch Caribbean.

As a Reggae artist, Maikal X’s breakthrough single ‘The Best In You’ garnered him critical acclaim all over the globe, which resulted in his album ‘Genesis’ being distributed by the world renown Reggae label VP Records. This album also spawned the hits of ‘Bear With Me’ and ‘Here She Comes’.

International Reggae icons such as Peetah Morgan (lead singer of the group Morgan Heritage), Luciano and Dean Fraser all contributed to this strong debut.

Maikal X’s remake of UB40’s gem release ‘One In Ten’ which is considered by many fans and artists as one of UB40’s best. Recorded in Amsterdam with his talented musical friends Johanman on the bass guitar, Evan David Warner on electric guitar and Quintin Stephen on the keys, the song oozes positive vibrations and craves for a large audience to enjoy. Maikal X delivers an extra rap that adds a layer of spice and character to the cover.” Watch official music video on You Tube:
