Where are they now one may ask…Though notably quiet on the local music scene, Jamaican veteran duo Tanto Metro and Devonte have been doing their thing on the international circuit, performing worldwide, working with major producers and still representing Dancehall/Reggae music, while diversifying with musicians from various world genres.

The veteran Jamaican duo are popularly known for their 90’s award winning Reggae single, ‘Everyone Falls In Love’ and ‘Give it to Her’, harmonious vocals, catchy songs and comedic yet thought-provoking lyrics and vibe.

Groovemakers Freddy Fresh and Andy Ictus featured the Jamaican duo in their ‘feel good’ single, ‘Hardcore Rocka’ and the fun, quirky, vibesy visuals have been released.

An energetic, somewhat funky backyard party takes place as we hear Tanto and Devonte lending their Dancehall/hardcore flavored vocals to add even even more unique flavor to the rustic rock beat.

The video is currently on MTV’s top Music Videos list…love the fusion!! Taking Jamaica and the Caribbean to the world!
