Entertaining lessons at New Kingston's university.

Sampler

New York City’s reggae boy band New Kingston – comprising three brothers – put out a wicked and wild track some weeks ago. Life was the title and it was a heavy as lead Black Uhuru-influenced roots scorcher with some very memorable melodica.

New Kingston - Kingston UniversityThis young trio’s second album 'Kingston University' soon followed the single release. The single is not representative for the full album though. No, 'Kingston University' is more diverse affair, including tough roots riddims, slick pop reggae ballads and energetic dancehall. But all tracks have sweet harmonizing, an urban contemporary touch and successfully fuse reggae, pop and R&B.

Producers Carey “K-Melz” Mellers, Dean Fraser, Special Delivery and New Kingston themselves have managed to make a radio friendly set aimed at sound systems, dancehalls and nighttime romancing.

Fans of TOK and Voicemail – or Konshens debut album from last year – should definitely apply for 'Kingston University'. You might learn a thing or two.
