Never been to Kingston but on this new jam ‘Welcome’ by Five Steez, takes the listener for a short walk through his home town with solid illustrative methods. The song laced by Oneman Beats has that laid back,cinematic feel to it which adds some extra personal feel to the song. This is the 2nd leak off his upcoming Five Steez digital EP, ‘These Kingston Times’.
Independent artist, Five Steez, has released the second single – ‘Welcome’ – from his upcoming digital EP, ‘These Kingston Times’. The track, which comes four weeks after the first single, ‘Deadly’, is available for streaming on Soundcloud and as a free download exclusively on Bandcamp until the release of the project.
On ‘Welcome’, produced by OneMan Beats, Five Steez introduces the uninitiated to his city – Kingston, the capital of Jamaica. The song, which begins the EP, features an uptempo head-nodding instrumental and a multi-layered hook with scratches on a Jamaican vocal sample done by the producer.
“‘Welcome’ is very friendly,” says Five Steez. “It’s one of the lighter tracks on the EP, sort of like ‘Deadly’ in that sense, but it gives people an idea of what they’re going to hear about Kingston on this project.”
OneMan Beats, the song’s Bronx-based producer, says, “Five Steez wrote the perfect concept for this song, which explains where he is from, with a Jamaican MC’s point of view. Kinda feels like the Bronx, New York, but in Jamaica.”
