You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
*These Producers are not ranked in any way.
1. Wavy Jones
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
3. Teflon Zincfence
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!

Kris Karz and Kngly Studios are back at it again with another “Kngly Live” session! This week we hear the musical styling of Florida/Jamaica based Recording Artist, Jo Penha! With his single, “You“, Jo slows down the tempo as he delivers for the ladies on this one. With Kris handling the Piano, this calls for a candle light affair and Champagne sips as Jo breaks it down.

A new installment of “Kngly Live” is finally here featuring a familiar face, Recording Artist K Charlz. This is our first tango with the Artist this season and he does not fail to deliver his sound reverberating acoustic melody. Unlike last time, we find ourselves outside the familiar space that is Kngly Studios, and Producer Kris Karz is nowhere in sight! Taking on a more natural atmosphere, K Charlz invites us to shake off some of those purely bad vibes by chanting this fully acoustic cover of the Bob Marley track, “Crisis“. Trevor Hansen provides the music and puts our minds at ease while K Charlz delivers the lyrics! Stay up to date with “Kngly Live” by visiting KnglyStudios.com!

Kngly Studios’ “Kngly Live” season 2 is here! The series received a lot of love last season and viewers enjoyed some great performances from the likes of K Charlz, J-Stone, Ludy, and more! With a blend of genres and nationalities, the new season promises more music! For the debut, Rapper/Singer Dylan Golden kicks it off for the lovers with his single, “July 31st”. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this will have lovers thinking ahead and work on making more moments together. A dope presentation from the Artist, and Kris and Guitarist Paul Canzoneri deliver on the acoustic side. 13 Bit’s “Dabbin’ Goku” Dad Hat makes an appearance.

Producer Kris Karz and Kngly Studios are back again with another instalment of “Kngly Live“! This week, Recording Artist K Charlz steps up to deliver some good music to soothe away the stress. Here, he covers the late David Ruffin’s “Walk Away From Love” (which was also covered by Recording Artist Bitty McLean), and blends his “Searching” single in the mix. If this acoustic number doesn’t make you drop everything and listen, then you are really stressed. Kick off the shoes, grab a nice beverage, relax and keep this on repeat because it’s a “Kngly Live” ting! Visit KnglyStudios.com.
