Kingston, Jamaica (MPR CONSULTING) – On March 30th, 2018, International recording artist I-OCTANE released his long-anticipated “LOVE & LIFE” album. It had been 4 years (“Crying to the Nation” 2012 and “My Journey” 2014) since fans have been clamoring for the artist to deliver a musical offering.
Reflecting on his “Love & Life” journey, I-Octane expressed “Just want to say thanks to my fans who’ve waited 4 years for this project, It was a joy to see the album debut at #3 on US iTunes chart. Also want to say thank you to the media and music players (djs & selector) who have supported every move my team and i have made with this project and the fact that most of you not only promoted it but also went out and bought copies of ‘Love & Life’ makes me even more grateful to you all.
So much work went into creating this album because it would be the very first major production from my company (Conquer The Globe Productions) and I needed it to be perfect in every way so, I could not thank everyone and not say thank you to the people who sacrificed their private and social lives to make sure this album is a success. My team, I’m truly grateful for every one of you. Everyone’s input got us to where we are today. Thank you!”
Adding further “I am forever grateful for the support and love from my fans, team and the industry. And just want to say continue supporting this album by getting it on your favorite music site or ordering your hard copies from Amazon and spread the word. Much respect to my distributor IDC.” – I-Octane
Making its debut at #3 on iTunes Reggae charts, “Love & Life” album features 17 tracks with the addition of 2 bonus tracks produced by I-Octane’s own imprint label Conquer The Globe Productions distributed by California based IDC. The multi-talented crooner is presently on a promotional tour in New York, and will upon his return to Jamaica announce the date for his album release party ahead of the spring tour as a special guest to twice GRAMMY nominated J-Boog.

“Fluid riffs, a unique and rhythmic style, thoughtful lyrics, inspired by I-Octane’s Jamaican roots, Love & Life is the type of album that we could expect from the artist, an album where he experiments new areas. Powerful, cohesive and creative as we can hear on the last track of the album “Weh di Fire Gone” which happens to be the second bonus track of the album.” – La Grosee Radio France
“The album is a tribute to a true reggae style. Tropical notions and sunny production bleed through. Those mellow drums and accompanying vibes beg for replay value, which is exactly what you get from Love and Life by I-Octane.” – Indie Band Guru
”Love and life” takes you on a musical trip through I-Octane’s musical mind touching the pleasures and struggles of Love and Life, using a good mix of Reggae and Dancehall tracks” – Danny Creatah, World A Reggae.
“I-Octane’s ‘Love & Life’ opus picks up where his sophomore project, ‘My Journey’, left off with a full throttle into international terrains and no signs of looking back. Vocally and lyrically the Reggae crooner appears to be in his comfort zone; as if to play it safe with existing fans while officially introducing himself to new audiences. It must be said that the album standouts come in the form of his collaborative tracks – with the likes of Shaggy, Ginjah, Demarco, Yanique (Curvy Diva), JBoog and Romain Virgo – but in the same breathe I-Octane didn’t allow them to outshine him. Nonetheless, ‘Love & Life’ is the type of project you’d expect from I-Octane at this point in his career. Cohesive, potent, experimental and creatively crafted.” – Biko Kennedy, Music Journalist.
