Het programma ‘what’s hot?!’ had niemand minder dan Bay-c voormalig bandlid T.O.K. in de studio. Ze hebben met hem gesproken over zijn solo cariiere, nieuwe single en hij heeft wat freestyles gedroped.
Check het interview hieronder.
The mixtape ‘Rise Of A New King’ is a collection of tracks that the artiste has been releasing since the start of the year, along with songs from his recent Better Must Come EP and yet to be released singles that will be out and popping by the summer.
“It’s definitely not my first mixtape but it’s great when fans can get a collective representation of you in one project, since last year’s EP showed the roots side of me this ‘Rise Of A New King’ mixtape can showcase the dancehall and fusion sound as well” Bay-C shared
The 14 track compilation also includes international collaborations like ‘Bubble Butt’ with Panamanian artiste Lorna and, Rude Gyal Swing with African Pop artiste Treesha. Other features on the ‘Rise Of a New King’ mixtape come from R&B crooner Gordon Andres, Ahkan of Ghanaian afro beat duo Ruff n Smooth, and Jamaica’s own Shady Squad.
The ‘Rise Of A New King’ mixtape has 70% dancehall, 30% roots reggae energy and was produced by the immensely popular Kingstone Sound from Cologne, Germany. The artiste believes the project properly defines him as a part of Dancehall history and propels him as a part of Dancehall’s future.
“This mixtape is more of Dancehall royalty and me recognising that position as an artiste. Anyone listening can feel like they’re royal as the mixtape is not just about Bay-C but more that each person has the potential to be regal in whatever they do.” Bay-C chimed
There are specific tracks that the artiste wants listeners of the project to pay close attention to as well; the single ‘Bad Anyweh’, an unreleased Afrobeat track called ‘Diamonds’ and the recently released ‘Pop Bottles’ single which is doing quite well at the moment, are among Bay-C favourites on the project.
The ‘Rise Of A New King’ mixtape is currently on soundcloud for fans to listen to https://soundcloud.com/baycmusic/bayc-the-rise-of-a-new-king. Fans can also look forward to new music from Bay-C in the coming months as well as new merchandise and an upcoming summer European tour.
