Dancehall Dynamo New Kidz to drop sexy single "Woman"
(Brooklyn, NY/Kingston, JA - 25, August 2008) Dancehall up-and-comer New Kidz, the first artist on international reggae star Buju Banton's independent label Gargamel Music, will be releasing his new single, "Woman," Tuesday, September 2. The song is the first track from Kidz' yet-to-be titled album slated for release early next year and will feature some of Jamaica's top producers including John John, Delly Ranx, Laba Laba, Liquid and, of course, the Gargamel production crew.
New Kidz, nee Anthony Bennett, was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, in a home brimming with the rhythms of his father's sound system. He was drawn very early to a musical path and those sounds provided inspiration that would shape his life.
Following a stint as selector for fellow Duhaney Park native, dancehall star Spragga Benz, Kidz had collaborations with other dancehall greats including Elephant Man ("Wash Out"). After rocking the crowds at some of the hottest Caribbean music festivals including Sting, Fully Loaded, Sumfest and touring for two years as the warm-up act for Buju Banton, Kidz has evolved into an entertainer, songwriter and budding producer who is honed and ready to take center stage. As he humbly states, "Good music can talk to the people, influence people, teach people. I just want to lift music up... Trust me. Just give me a listen."
New Kidz, who still resides in Jamaica, is currently in New York for several promotional events and is available for interviews through Thursday, August 28.
