Kris Karz - Reciprocation on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Miami #Florida #Music

.@Kris_Karz Starts The Year Off With “Reciprocation”


Kicking off the new year with music is Producer/Recording Artist Kris-Karz! While he made a return to music releases late last year, he’s ready to take his career to the next level. With a project seeing a possible release later this year, Kris is setting up for a great rollout. Still relatively new to the scene as a Recording Artist, he is leaving great impressions with every song. We hope it doesn’t change with the release of the track, “Reciprocation“.

Turning up the tempo on this one, Kris-Karz gives us some slick lyrics paired with some jammin’ production that Musicians Keshawn Allen and Coombs assisted with (inspired by late Rapper Mac Miller’sSelf Care” album and made at Producer J.L.L.’s house) that is sure to make him stand out this year. Kris isn’t your average Producer, so you’re not gonna expect nothing less as an Artist. With lyrics that find him going through the adventures of love and relationships (with some back seat action going on), listeners will relate to this one, and definitely show it a lot of love. We look forward to the visual for this one. If you’re not familiar with Kris-Karz yet, check out his content here.

Dale Virgo presents "DubSoul" on 13thStreetPromotions.com

.@DaleVirgo Seeks To Make A Global Impact With “DubSoul”!


When it comes to music, the Island of Jamaica has been a pioneer, contributing to the ever growing soundscapes. From Ska, to Reggae, to Dub, to Dancehall, Jamaica’s music has lent a hand in establishing new genres, and creating fresh new talent in the process. With names like Bob Marley, Toots Hibbert, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sean Paul, and Vybz Kartel being some of the more recognizable names globally for their musical contributions, a huge impact has truly been made from such a small Island. Enter Producer Dale “Dizzle” Virgo who seeks to contribute to the growing impact with, “DubSoul”.

“DubSoul” is the newest sub-genre that promises to further change how you hear sounds. Created during the pandemic, Producer Dale Virgo delves into various sounds, and was inspired to create a new wave, something that will touch music lovers in a way that never had before. The sub-genre taps into Dub, Reggae, Dancehall, Soul, and other sounds from many other genres, and Dale Virgo believes that “DubSoul” will have staying power, and new talent from around the world will emerge to push it to unprecedented levels. “Armed with capabilities for physiological arousals, emotional mood setting, and a deep cognitive range, he is ready to take over mainstream with his dynamic rhythm sounds which can leave you: calm, mellow, happy, lively, enthusiastic, and inspiring, while also revealing the complex, sad and depressing side of the same coin. What is his name? He goes by the name “DubSoul.” shares Virgo about the new sub-genre. Early examples of DubSoul can be found on Gyptian’s 2010 single, “Mama Bawl”, and on Virgo and Jamaican Recording Artist SeanResy’s collaborative EP, “Rocky Road”, which was released in July 2021.
