Fresh off the heels of announcing his forthcoming debut album Chapter One, today kiwi artist and producer KINGS (Matt Headland) has shared the first track off the new release with us. The young recording artist's independent debut release Chapter One is due out November 3rd via DRM NZ.
A fast moving track, 'Kush Rolled x Cup Filled' demonstrates Kingdon Chapple-Wilson's prolific skill as a producer and his gift for creating 'the perfect drop' over heavy drum & bass madness and polarizing synthesizers. It's a feel-good, party track set to get you pumped for your Friday nights.
Stay tuned for a new track reveal every Friday in the lead up to album release, and see the many sides of the Chapter One story.
Known as a musical shapeshifter in terms of the styles he fuses together in the studio, Chapter One is a multi-faceted yet cohesive body of work that documents the young kiwi artist, father and producer's steady rise to the top. Completely self-produced by Chapple-Wilson, the 12-track album is his first independent release of which he had to say:
"I've always encouraged artists and musicians to do things themselves and to study the game thoroughly. It was only right that I do this entire project the way I preach. From directing the music videos to designing the cover art, everything is written, produced, mixed, and mastered the way I intended, with the hope that it encourages YOU to do the same thing."
Chapple-Wilson appeared through the smokescreen with his chart-topping track 'Don't Worry Bout It' which has now surpassed 6 million streams and over 1 million YouTube views.
