MAIKAL X on Sunday at Kim Sha Beach

maikal_xGracing the stage with Ziggi, Maikal X will be the show everyone is waiting for! His distinct, unique voice and humble character are what make artist Maikal X part of the best selling hiphop/reggae group ever in the Netherlands "Postmen."

After the Internet release of Maikal X's first tune "The Best in You" late 2008, he captured the attention of music lovers around the world and was seen as a promising new artist with a mesmerizing voice and great talent. "The Best in You" caught the attention of Jamaican hit producer Don Corleon who thereafter personally approached Maikal X to sing a tune on his latest production called "The Changes Riddim." The result was the hit tune called "Bear with me."

"Bear with me" is Maikal X's first official single released by his label Rock 'N Vibes Entertainment. The video for "Bear with Me" was shot in the Netherlands in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The single was released on April 20, 2009. Maikal X was born Michael Parkinson, hence Maikal; the X reflects all that he's known for.

Even though Maikal X lived all his life in the Netherlands, having a Curaçaolenean mother and Guyanese father made it almost impossible for him to lose the Caribbean feel for music. He started out as a break-dancer at the age of 6 and later discovered his singing abilities. At the age of 17 he started touring the Netherlands and Belgium with the famous Dutch formation Gotcha! From 1998, Maikal X then known as Rollarocker/Shyrock enjoyed critical and commercial success with the group "Postmen," which had a string of hit singles such as "Cocktail" and "You Wait" taken from its hit debut album "Documents." After winning several prizes (Silver Harp, Heineken Crossover award) and releasing three albums, Maikal X left the group in 2004. In 2008 Maikal X signed with the independent label Rock 'N Vibes, responsible for the success of Ziggi, one of Holland's best Reggae artists.

Maikal X dove into the studio with producer Mr. Rude, to record new solo material to pursue his solo career. Freshly signed to Rock N Vibes, Maikal X seized the opportunity to go on tour in 2008 as opening act during the "In Transit Tour" of his label mate Ziggi. Under the name Shyrock, Maikal X is also known as the MC of Europe's biggest dancehall and reggae party called "Jamrock." Maikal X also hosts the Jamrock radio show.

The tune "Bear with me" is one of the many tunes to appear where you can enjoy Maikal X's mesmerizing voice and melodic flow. Some of his music is considered classic from birth. Maikal X will be performing on several prestigious festivals in the Netherlands and Europe with his band "Evolution." Look out for the newest veteran in the music game!
