In 2006, the Impressive Music Entertainment Company was founded by aspiring music producer Duane ‘D.E’ Edwards and close friends and business associates Jason ‘J-won’ Smalling and Sadiq Rhoden.
Since its inception, IME has focused its attention on creating hard-hitting music that span various genres including dancehall, hip hop, R&B, reggae and pop by combing the musical styling of multi-talented artistes with lyrics that have already hit high notes with fans worldwide.
Though initially a production company, DE and associates saw where the opportunity existed to expand their practice and ventured off into even greater depths; talent management.
The label’s first artiste J-won has already been carrying the IME banner and taking IME’s music to the world. A slew of records have already hit the market and the company is now aggressively marketing some of its highly-anticipated rhythms.
Presently, the company is operated on a daily basis by Manager Duane Edwards and Sadiq Rhoden as Marketing Director. Despite the obvious challenge of scarce resources, the company’s Management ensures that IME’s business is first priority and that all aspects of its operations are skillfully covered.
The company’s ultimate goal is to garner international status and inevitably forming an Indie Label. But until then, IME is prepared to take Jamaica and the World by storm.
