If you need a rudeboy, then step to Krishane but just don’t be ‘Inconsiderate’, this boys got feeling you know and doesn’t want to take a beat to his aching heart.
So with a touch of his ‘tribal’ kick beat, Krishane is mixing up dancehall vibes to set off the 2016 season, but something tells us there’s a bigger wave of emerging Jamaican artists all big contenders to break through. Being the son of reggae singer Barrington Levy is hard to ignore when anyone talks about Krishane, but with a lineage that comes with strong roots from his hometown in Manchester, Jamaica, you can’t help but hope there might be a resurgence of that 90’s Reggae/Dancehall chart domination. The 90’s saw a continuous wave of dancehall artists from Shabba Ranks, Beanie Man, Buju Banton, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Barrington Levy to Sean Paul all exporting their sound beyond Jamaica to the pop charts.
Fast forward to to 2016, it may be down to the 2nd generation to bring dancehall back to new glory days, and Krishane seems committed to build his dancehall tribe by connecting not one but three countries between London, Jamaica and Nigeria. Krishane has been perfecting his sound for a few years in London and on ‘Incosiderate’ links up with Nigerian dancehall reggae star Patoranking making an even bigger statement. “I have a lot of respect for Patoranking. He blew me away with his dancehall styles when he jumped on the track in One Go. I knew that having him on the track was a no brainer and the perfect way to connect two countries by culture”
