Artist & tune

  • New Kingston (Band) - Pon The Wall
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
New Kingston is a young vocalist/instrumentalist group that consists of four brothers. Tahir a.k.a. Slim the youngest member on keyboards and vocals, Courtney on drums and vocals, Leighton on bass and Stephen a.k.a Suki the oldest on guitar and vocals. New Kingston fuses their reggae sound with modern pop, jazz and R&B to create their own 'reggae crossover' sound under the tutelage of their father and manager Courtney LJ Panton.

And now, following their excellent "Dilemma" on the brilliant 'Outlaw'-riddim from (Bassrunner Productions' selector Loopus and Florian Richling (of electro-project Tipanic) together operating as) Luke R.I.C.H., here is the great single "Pon The Wall". Having worked all five closely with legendary DJ Shabba Ranks it's only logical they pay tribute to him riding a remixed version of the 'Ting-A-Ling'-riddim completely with intact Shabba intro. This is a very catchy tune with more than enough cross-over potential, be sure to listen into it.
