Rap­per Johnath­an Bur­kett has just released his new EP ‘One Life’. The release fol­lows on from his latest album ‘Ready, Set, Let’s Go’, released earli­er this year.

‘One Life’ fea­tures vocals from Reg­gae artist Ambelique. The EP revolves around the title track, with every remix form­ing a com­pletely dif­fer­ent vibe from the next, push­ing and retract­ing the intens­ity through­out. Ori­gin­ally a Reg­gae track, the remixes explore styles such as Dub, EDM and Techno/House. The lyr­ic­al con­tent details the chal­lenges and hard­ships Bur­kett has faced in life, look­ing to spread a pos­it­ive, reas­sur­ing mes­sage to his audi­ence through his per­son­al exper­i­ences.

Liv­ing in Jamaica in his early years, Johnath­an Bur­kett returned to US and suffered from a troubled child­hood. His struggles saw him become home­less at 14, before bat­tling a brain tumour in 2005. He turned to music as an escape, look­ing to bet­ter his life and oth­ers through the medi­um. Since step­ping into music, Bur­kett has released a pleth­ora of singles through­out the dec­ade, earn­ing over 1 mil­lion views on You­Tube, lead­ing up to the release of his debut album this year. He own and oper­ates his own record com­pany, Upstormed Records.

Johnath­an is also a pub­lished author, hav­ing released his first book ‘Neg­lected But Undefeated’.

‘One Life’ is avail­able now on all major stream­ing plat­forms.
