Kxng Izem

Recording artiste Kxng Izem is gearing as much as release a double EP titled Midnight Til Dawn which he believes will introduce listeners to his versatility.

“The project is designed to take you on an exciting journey of new musical experiences. The vibe and feel is youthful and energetic, upbeat and embodies the youthful phrase ‘it is a vibe,’ “, the artiste told the Jamaica Observer’s Splash.

Set for debut today, March 24, the project — which features two sides, namely Midnight and Til Dawn — is a mixture of dancehall, reggae, rock and trap.

It was co-produced by Ten24 Music Kalex. The body of labor also features contributions from other producers and composers, amongst them Shakespeare, Island.Wav, Delagroove, Ambrose (Sweet Rush Music), and Ceddii Sosa.

“The Midnight side expresses potent and relatable lyricism, wittiness, consciousness, and a soulful Rastafari messages in a new and modern form with quite a lot of vibes. Til Dawn modernises 90s dancehall, which the industry has been craving for. It also has elements of rocksteady and R&B to evoke soothing and sultry feelings,” the entertainer, whose given name is Dmitri Cummings explained.

The St Andrew native anticipates that the relatability of the project will yield him his big break.

“I expect an explosive breakout into the world of Jamaican music. I would like this project to propel my music into the mainstream music industry in Jamaica and garner international attention. I would like this not just for myself, but in addition for others who’re doing the music in a positive way that remains to be youthful and ‘dope’ enough to play on the worldwide stage,” he said.

Intrigued by music, Kxng Izem began his musical journey in highschool. His first official studio recording Wildfire was released in March 2021. Since then he’s released other successful tracks akin to Haunted, Guard Ring, Stone Love and The Ruler.

His earlier influences got here from the likes of Bob and Damian Marley, Protoje, Kendrick Lamar, and Capleton.

He further noted that considered one of his predominant mandates is to positively influence society through his craft.

“For me, as a musician, the message is all the things. I learnt lots from Rastafari and reggae music also helped me to have a more positive mindset towards life and folks. With that knowledge, I at all times felt music was a vital solution to share essential values and so I at all times make sure that I put that back into my music,” he said.

While the main target is currently on the double EP, the artiste is looking ahead and already anticipating future works following this project.

“The journey is long, and the rise is inevitable. I see myself as a front-runner and so I’ll proceed to work and remain humble as I welcome the opportunities as they arise while Kxng Izem’s music grows larger and greater,” he added.
