Four years after releasing his breakthrough ‘Bridging the Gap’ EP which catapulted to top tier positions on the iTunes and Billboard Reggae Album charts, reggae artiste Keznamdi is back with his Sophomore project Skyline Levels Vol. 1 which will be available worldwide at all digital outlets on Friday April 21. His latest project is being distributed by the renowned Empire Distribution based in San Francisco, California.
The eight-track Skyline Levels Vol 1 project is very diverse in its offerings; So Right and Lost Love explore love and relationship issues while She is a Queen and God’s Design provide messages of female empowerment and upliftment. No Place like home pays homage to our beautiful island of Jamaica while Victory and Father Protect Me provides messages of hope and inspiration to get through the daily rigors of life. Never Forgotten, the final track, is a highly emotional and personal dedication to his childhood best friend Sonnieko Williams who lost his life at the hands of police brutality. The entire project was penned and recorded at his home studio nestled in the lush hills of Skyline Drive in Upper St. Andrew; his studio compound is also dubbed Skyline Levels thus the name of this project represents personal and intimate experiences in the life of Keznamdi.
The 25 year old singer also donned his producer’s cap on this project, producing six of the eight tracks with local musicians; the other two tracks were produced by German heavyweight producers Silly Walks Disco and Lance-a-lot Productions.”We have been working on this project for the past 10 months so I am really excited to be blessing the universe with new sounds. There has definitely been a lot of growth personally and musically since the last project so listeners will hear a more mature side of me. I think the world is hungry for more music now so I am just here to deliver that soulful, conscious music without expectations and limitations”, said Keznamdi.
A music video for one of the powerhouse tracks ‘Victory’ ft Chronixx will be released simultaneously with the project on Friday. Promotional media appearances and performances in support of the project will take place over the next few weeks. Supporters can subscribe to the artiste’s official website for visuals and other exclusive content.
