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.
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!

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!
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!
Fresh on the heels of announcing his upcoming debut performance at Reggae Sumfest, and in an effort to boost his hot new single Annie, Dancehall Artist Spotlight Kunta has launched an Instagram Dance Competition to unleash the creativity of his female fans.

The Artist will then repost the video to his page, where each contestant will be required to get likes/votes for the video. The person with the most likes will win the prize, however Spotlight Kunta and his management team reserve the right to determine the final winner.
Spotlight Kunta whose given name is Stennett Harris said Annie has been gaining traction on the local and International airwaves and party scene since its release. The track which is on the Rula Riddim, is produced by Cornelius Daley of Cornelius Records, and showcases the diverse talent of the Artist. He shared, “I’m proud of the progress of the single, and the feedback I’ve been getting globally. Everybody love it, and di woman dem inna di party a go crazy when it play.”
His Producer, Daley who has been working with him close to two years commented, “I see him as a promising talent because he has good work ethics and his own signature sound.

We have seen countless video performances by Dancing Rebel, Chin Unique, DHQ Tallup and a few dance routines from Europe, including Sweden and France. All routines have been well received.”
Born in Kingston and partially raised in Linstead, St. Catherine, Spotlight Kunta migrated to the Unites States of America at age 11, but has always been true to his roots. His first hit Guinness which was produced by Chester Walker in 1999 was used in a local Guinness Ad Campaign. He has been on the music scene for more than 15 years, and after a long hiatus, he is back in the studio recording, and promoting. “This Instagram Dance Competition is my way of telling all my female fans that I see and feel the love, and I want to show some appreciation.
