The names “DJ Tyrece” and “Universal Zincfence” may not be names you’ll instantly recognize, but they will be popular pretty soon. The names belong to a young Jamaican Producer by the name of Tyrece McNaughton, and he has been cooking up some fire that will surely bring out the lyrics out of some Artists. Today, he presents his Riddim Project titled, “Universal Joints Vol. 1“. Inspired by Hip Hop Producers like Pete Rock, J. Dilla, 9th Wonder, and Jamaican Producers like Teflon Zincfence, BNJMN, and SOS Dynamikz, Tyrece brings listeners into his sonic and sample filled world through 15 tracks. Whether you want to write pages of lyrics, or just absorb the sounds, this project is definitely a collector’s item. Get familiar with Universal Joints by pressing play below.
Producer Kris Karz has been pretty busy these past few months. From blessing the Internet with his “Kngly Live!” series, to producing tracks for the likes of Leno Banton, Dylan Golden, and K. Charlz, he decided it was time to let people in on some of his secret sounds. Though unofficially announced, he will be releasing a series of EPs with the first being today’s entry, “Pastel“! Featuring a lot of samples (If your ears are good, you might recognize a few hits), Kris really wants you to enjoy the sounds in every way. With 3 tracks and assistance from Alex Coombs, Wizzmer, and Tony Trombone, consider this the appetizer until the next course. Support Kris Karz and Kngly Studios, you may never know what he has next in store. Time to see sounds, check out the EP below!
We featured Jamaican Producer Chnce earlier this year along with some other dope Producers, and today we’re dropping something new from him! Titled “Deep In There“, he not only plays his role as Producer, but dons the hats of Songwriter and Recording Artist. Featured on the “Therapeutic Riddim“, a part of a Compilation by Kreatif Substans (more on that later down), Chnce goes into “Mr. Loverman” mode for the ladies! Putting a chosen lady in the starring role for a good time, Chnce details what they’ll do from the foreplay right down to climax. According to the Producer, while the track is explicit, the intention of the song was to be soft and mellow, with a few dashes of aggressive and clever lyrics. From here, Chnce flexes his pen to ensure that the ladies’ imagination is on fire when giving the track an earful. This is Chnce’s second appearance as a Recording Artist, but don’t expect him to put it at the forefront anytime soon. Expect more Production from him later this year, and maybe a surprise verse or few. Have a sexy good time by checking out the track below.
Gather ’round, hold someone’s hand or clasp your hands and close your eyes, we’re in the presence of the Lord! While the time can be a lil crazy, British Producer Tieks teamed up with legendary Recording Artist Chaka Khan and Jamaica’s “Unruly Boss” Popcaan for a new song called, “Say A Prayer“! With a dash of Electronic Dance Music, some Dancehall elements from Popcaan, and a whole lot of Soul from Chaka Khan, this song will sure to uplift you, and give God the glory! A huge look for Popcaan here as he goes up the ladder with more International collaborations up his sleeve. A song with Chaka Khan is a dream for many. and we can’t be any more proud of Poppy. To all my readers and followers in the Caribbean and Florida who are experiencing the brunt of the Hurricane season, continue to have faith, be safe, and say a little prayer! Check out the track below.
There are Producers who can craft Riddims on the fly, there are Producers who can provide the Soundtrack to your thoughts and lyrics, and there are those who can tell a story. UK based Signature is an upcoming Producer who has a story to tell, and he does so on his debut Beat Tape! Titled “The Journey“, this 10 track project is a result of taking a hiatus from the online world to further develop his skills. Featuring various clips where he’s being Interviewed, he speaks on his aspirations, his inspirations, and the process behind the making of his Tape. The project also features collaborations with Producers SOS Dynamikz, Universal ZincFence, SkyRas, and Kvdence who all bring together their sounds to create that “Audio Dope“! Romell and Xandire however, contribute to the journey with Interludes and providing encouragement. If you’re an Artist looking for a new sound, give Signature a call (Whatsapp or Facetime perhaps?). A great debut from Signature as it encourage plenty replays with a sound for any mood and situation. Check it out below!
The Producer is a very important person when it comes to Music. Without their contributions, many of your favourite songs would have never been heard. No matter how good an Artist is, a Producer helps to direct and develop the talent. Recently we had a chat with Florida based Producer/Recording Artist/Musician, Kris Karz. Known for his “Kngly Live!” series on here, he has also been a part of some tracks featuring some members of the “New Wave” movement (Royal Blu, Kapital Stone, K. Charlz, Leno Banton). If you don’t know, well get to know him below!
