Reggae music is reaching forward – escaping the hardcore heaviness of the past, and embracing a sunny, beach-club pop flavor that has recently invaded Billboard charts and European festivals. Reggae singer Ed Robinson and producer Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor are well aware of this global trend. The pair has just released a new pop-reggae single, titled “Let Your Hair Down,” Tuesday, October 21, 2014, for pre-order on iTunes. The single officially will be released November 25, 2014, on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
New Kingston is a Pop Reggae trio of Stephen, Courtney & Tahir Panton (sons of reggae veteran Courtney Panton). The group has built a strong reputation as a touring back-up band for Collie Buddz, Gyptian and Mr. Vegas among others. Now, with their new single “Waiting On The World To Change” New Kingston shows their versatility with this great cover of the Jon Mayer hit, produced by Mr. Dean Fraser.
