K'sangel raises eyebrows with 'Rumpari'
Dancehall singjay K'sangel is raising eyebrows with a new single, called 'Rumpari', which showcases a perky dancehall pop sound.
"The response to Rumpari has been incredible so far. Big ups to the street selectors, the radio disc jocks and everyone on the Gold N Goals production team," K'sangel said.
She recently inked a booking and recording deal with Gold N Goals Production. The label produced the Rumpari single, as well as her follow-up single, My Chill Spot. She also plans to release her debut EP early next year.
Born Sherene F. Salmon, she has been writing poetry since the age of 11. But at 18, she made the bold move to build an in-house studio so she could hone her talents. The first label was shared with a part-owner at that time. Several tracks were recorded, but, unfortunately, only one track, Can't Take This, was released via iTunes. The partnership soon dissolved because of creative differences that festered between them in 2013.
After that, K'sangel tried playing a role in her girls' group and then a stint in modelling.
Now back in music, K'sangel has crafted a decidedly pop sound to her dancehall-influenced songs for a delightful mix of what she dubs 'happy music'.
"I am motivated to write music by life, my experience and the experiences of others. Sometimes, it is what the beat is telling me. The idea of being able to share a particular experience with the world is important because it lets someone else know that they are not alone, and there is so much to be grateful and happy for in this world," she said.
