Gold Up, Busy Signal, Northcoast Boyz - Kindergarten
Gold Up and Northcoast Boyz teamed up with Jamaica’s iconic Busy Signal to deliver a single called “Kindergarten” to bring fun back to music, with kids in mind. This song will surely gain instant virality thanks to Gold Up’s original productions and Busy Signal’s signature vocals and flow. “Kindergarten” will be released right after the summer holidays along with a dance routine created by Northcoast Boyz, in time for the kids to take it back to school.
As you may have noticed, Dancehall has been getting darker with more sadistic lyrics and less energetic rhythms. There aren’t very many new songs that serve a wider market (specifically where kids are concerned) that the whole family can enjoy together.
Gold Up - Introduction (ALBUM)
For many, music is simply a form of entertainment and enjoyment; but for Gold Up, music is a place to build community and enable transformation. For this production duo, it has also been a place for enlightenment and growth. As they reflect on how they arrived at this point - producing an album featuring many of their idols - they've realized that nothing in this life arrives before it’s time. 'Introduction' is the second heavy hitting international album from the Canadian founded record label. This project is a culmination of hours of hard work, blood, sweat and tears of joy, mostly.
With the aim to reawaken dancehall fans on the international scene; to be diverse and create cross-cultural connections, 'Introduction' comprises 14 tracks, each carrying its own unique flare and flavour. Taking inspiration from a myriad of genres, Gold Up infused Dancehall with Latin Music and Afrobeats, making it a heavy weight within the realm of Dancehall, Afrobeats, Reggae, Reggaeton and Electronic Music.
The album is jam-packed with the most iconic and influential voices of our time. 'Introduction' has a fresh balance between new generation and veteran artists, striking a line-up that creates echoes across the globe. Artists such as Laa Lee, Shatta Wale, Charly Black, Elephant Man, Beenie Man, Kelvyn Boy and El Villanord didn't miss the chance to drop hits on every vibrant, upbeat rhythm. 'Introduction' is the album that serves as a look into a new chapter where fans can get to know Gold Up better.
