International recording artiste A-Math does not believe in musical boundaries.

He has pushed those boundaries to create his very own genre.

The Anguilla-born Andy Mathew, who holds a degree in music practice and technology from the University of East London, believes the world is ready for his brand new musical genre - 'regg-oul'.

"Throughout my career I've worked with various types of music, and I am convinced that reggae and R&B are the two most powerful ones," he told THE STAR.

"So, I've fused both sounds to come up with regg-oul. It's a more mellow and soulful genre. The music is sweet and the messages are very potent. This is the new sound that's going to take over the world."

He said the genre has been catching on in Anguilla, and it will only be a matter of time before it's picked up by other Caribbean islands, including Jamaica.

"I know the Jamaicans are going to love it, they have a very eclectic musical taste," he said.

A-Math is currently promoting a single I Just Wanna Love You, featuring Young OZ.

"This song is regg-oul, and the ladies love it," he said. "I'm getting a lot of support from DJs all over the world with this tune. The video for it is also doing well. The YouTube hits are growing."

A-Math has spent over two decades honing his craft. His musical journey began in his childhood days while growing up in Anguilla, but his love for music has taken him beyond the Caribbean, as he has performed and studied music in Europe.

He released his debut album, The Score, in 2015 and is currently working on his sophomore album, which is due to be released in the first quarter of this year.
