Reggae and dancehall specialist Abood Music, the music publishing business of Othman Mukhlis’s Jamdown Entertainment, last week announced a worldwide alliance with Downtown Music Publishing.

Under the deal, Downtown will seek to get Abood’s 7000+ song repertoire – which includes work by the likes of Cordell ‘Scatta’ Burrell, RDX and Bounty Hunter – to a larger audience worldwide.

Confirming the deal, Downtown UK’s MD Roberto Neri told reporters: “Othman has built up an impressive reputation and catalogue [and] we feel privileged to be the first publisher to represent Abood globally and for Downtown to be his new home”.
