Every so often, there are artists that manage to create their own style; this usually results from the experimentation of combining multiple musical styles outside their comfort zone.  Bob Marley and The Wailers, Shaggy and Sean Paul were bold enough to do so and have gained international acclaim.

Conkarah is no different.  On his new EP, Loverbwoy/Rudebwoy (produced by Ezra), Conkarah fuses dubstep with reggae and dancehall to create a new style that we call “reggae-step”.  On his latest single, “Be Mine”, Conkarah mixes electronic dancehall rhythms, syncopated synth-reggae melodies and dramatic dubstep fader effects to craft this “reggae-step” love anthem.  Like most sing-jays, Conkarah switches between his fiery DJ toasting and sweet singing abilities throughout the song’s verses and choruses.  Both “Be Mine” and his EP prove that experimentation really does pay off.
