LA-based EDM-reggae-pop-fusion producer Chris Goldfinga is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album, EDM Dancehall Boss, which will be powered by a lead single from dancehall maestro Vybz Kartel, who teams up with Italian opera singer Chiara Ariè for a saucy track, provocatively entitled Foreplay.
The album, which is distributed by local distributor J Wonder 21st, features the slick production of well-known indie outfit, the Beverly Hills Boys, an EDM-reggae-pop fusion company based in Los Angeles. Record producer Chris Goldfinga created the Beverly Hills Boys.
“This album is highly anticipated around the world.”— Chris Goldfinga
“Beverly Hills Boys is a production squad which is venturing into DJing like the likes of Major Lazer and Calvin Harris. This album is highly anticipated around the world because of its diversity of range, artiste and sound. Our sound is primarily an EDM-based dancehall sound, but we have incorporated other genres to make it really diverse. We got pop, dancehall, reggaeton, EDM, an Abba Swedish sound, house, deep house and more,” said Chris Goldfinga, whose real name is Christopher Clarke.
The 20-track album showcases songs by dancehall pop star Sean Paul, dancehall giant Vybz Kartel and Italian opera singer Chiara Ariè on the aforementioned Foreplay, Afrobeat Nigerian star Waconzy, Swedish singer Kennedi, songstress Maiya Sykes, Esco the Shocker and JayBad aka Draybadz.
“The album has a truly international feel with Afro Beat well represented, a reggaeton contribution by Dominican Republic artiste D-Rok305, rapper Uneak on a Michael Jackson sample which reps New York, while American singer Rya killed it, pop singer Jamar represents for Jamaica, and female rapper Mellinin reps the independent females with an X-rated strip club anthem. This is a project that is multi-cultural and truly stands out,” he said.
The compilation is rounded out by artistes such as Singing Sweet, who is known for the reggae cover, When I See You Smile, and budding EDM star Gasz Mask, who has collaborated with dancehall legends Shabba Ranks and Vybz Kartel.
