New Kingston is a young vocalist/instrumentalist group that consists of three brothers. Tahir a.k.a. SLIM, the youngest member on Keyboards/Vocals. Courtney on Drums/Vocals and Stephen a.k.a SUKI, the oldest on Guitar/Vocals. This group fuses their Reggae sound with modern Pop, Jazz and R&B music, to create their sound, which they term, “Reggae Crossover”. New Kingston has been in the industry for some time now and some might call them, “young veterans”! The group is led by it’s founder/manager and father Courtney LJ Panton.

New Kingston started off working with many artists such as, Collie Buddz, Mr.Vegas, Morgan Heritage, Gyptian, Shabba Ranks, and many more. But, while working with all of these artists, manager Courtney LJ Panton had another vision. This vision helped New Kingston create their sound, dubbed, “Reggae Crossover”. A blend of sounds to everyone’s likes, while still sticking to their heritage. Reggae!

Now this group is sharing the stage with many artists around the world from Europe, to the Americas and beyond. New Kingston is currently set to release their second album, “In the Streets”. The album features two of their singles that are gaining radio recognition globally. “In The Streets”, the title track of the album and “Pon Di Wall”, which is on the Ting-ah-Ling riddim revamped and remade by New Kingston!

Video: Dizzy Wright – ‘Verbalizing’

dizzy-wright-verbalizing

2012 was nothing short of a breakout year for Funk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright. First up, the The Las Vegas native released his official debut album, SmokeOut Conversations, which peaked at #2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart; next came a free mixtape, Free SmokeOut Conversations, with over 200,000 downloads; and, to close the year, an EP, The First Agreement, with yet another strong showing, peaking at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. And while these numbers would have even the most accomplished of artists celebrating, Dizzy instead brought his music to fans across the world, with tours alongside his Funk Volume labelmates Hopsin, Jarren Benton, SwizZz, and DJ Hoppa that spanned three continents.

Early last month, Dizzy partnered Hot New Hip-Hop to record the song “Verbalizing,” a track that has since amassed nearly 100,000 views on the site, and today, Dizzy and Hot New Hip-Hop are bringing fans a video for the popular single. The song, over somber, keys-driven production, finds Dizzy recounting the steps he’s taken, since a teen, to get where he is today. The video, directed by Armen Soudjian for Urbanlinx Productions, complements the song well, a series of low key performance shots that allows Dizzy’s introspective lyrics to shine.
