DELLY Ranx is preparing to replicate the success of his Cotton Swab rhythm with his upcoming project titled the Mouthwash rhythm.

“When I produce music, I always try my best to create music that music lovers will enjoy and appreciate, and I also try my best to top my last project. The Mouthwash rhythm will be another winner,” he said.

Scheduled to be released before end of year, that project will feature songs from acts, including Delly Ranx and his protege Jah Wiz.

“Jah Wiz is a very talented youth. I signed him two years ago since then I've been doing a lot of work with him. I'm grooming him for the international music scene; I have a lot of confidence in him. It won't be long before Jah Wiz becomes a star,” he said.

The Cotton Swab rhythm features the breakout single Family by Popcaan.

Recently, NBA star Jimmy Butler — who plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves — posted an Instagram video of himself driving while playing Family. The single has been getting strong rotation locally as well as US urban radio stations.

“I'm happy and thankful for the success of Family and the Cotton Swab Rhythm. This is definitely one of my most successful projects. Family is playing all over the world from Jamaica to Dubai. It's one of the biggest dancehall hits right now,” said Delly Ranx.

Family was released in October 2017 on the Pure Music Productions imprint. The rhythm also features: This Is The Love by Da'Ville; Vershon's No Worries; Better Days (Jah Wiz); Real Survivor (Bugle); Don't Push Your Luck (I-Octane); When I Grow Up (Gappy Ranks); Wanted (Versatile); Just Wanna Be Free (Dre Island), My Talent (Kappa); Hold On (Jaziel Myrie -— son of Buju Banton); and Demarco's Values.

Delly Ranx (given name Delroy Foster) began doing music professionally at the age of 17. He started his Pure Music Productions label in 1998, and had already carved out a name for himself in dancehall music circles as a recording artiste. He had hits with Headache (featuring Elephant Man), Work Round Dem, Silly Billy, What A Gal Can Wine, Pon Di Corner (with Mega Banton), and Weh Di Time with Voicemail and dancer Bogle. The latter was recorded in 2008.

He is also promoting his recently released one drop EP titled Reggaeloution, which was produced by Stingray Productions in England.
