Chris Kabs Announces New Single Ft. JyellowL Titled ‘No Joke’ Set To Be Released Sept 16th

No Comments

Innovative Producer and Artist Chris Kabs announces New Single ft. Dublin Hip Hop juggernaut JyellowL, titled ‘No Joke’ set to be released on Sept 16th via RoughBones.

It’s no secret that Ireland’s Rn’B/Hip Hop/Afro scene has evolved into a fierce multi-faceted arena with key voices emerging as vital players, and on ‘No Joke’ we see Chris Kabs and JjellowL deliver one of the finest contributions to the thriving landscape.

Kabs comments on the song:

It has been interesting to observe how some creative individuals compromise their creativity for clout and attention, or to sound similar to this or that artist. And I get that following rules works for some. But I am a visionary and am led by my own innovation, I chose to be true to myself and create my own lane and vibe, and then let the audience decide. Jyellowl is my musical brother, he gets it, and thats why his flow ‘I don’t follow I pioneer’ resonates so well on the track. We are pioneers.

Citing Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Wyclef Jean as some of his major influences, Kabs doesn’t like to get caught up in genres. As a result of his dedication, creativity, and fearless imagination for the individual sound, he has developed vocal and production styles that create a unique yet commercial mainstream sound that weaves between pop, hip hop, and afrobeat. As a fluent speaker of English, Swedish, French, and Lingala, he has also written music in all four languages. 

 

 

In addition to producing for the cream of the crop of local and international artists (Tolü Makay, Coolio, Hudis, Sia Babez, JyellowL and many more), Chris Kabs has contributed music to such TV shows as ‘Normal People’, ‘Fifa 20’ and ‘Ozone’ by JyellowL. He has just signed a Sync licensing deal with International Sync agency Pure Sync Inc in London which will see his music placed on more and more platforms. 

The extensive experience he has gained as an artist has enabled him to gain the recognition and credibility that has helped him become a regular on the gigging circuit performing at events such as Hard Working Class Heroes in addition to appearing alongside other talented artists at Longitude, the legendary Dublin venue Whelans, and RTE Live, he also headlined SoundHouse, Grand Social, and Cyprus Avenue.

New music and singles drop from early September 2022, starting with ‘No Joke’ which was produced and written by Chris Kabs + the rap written by JyellowL, and is released exclusively via Rough Bones in the UK, ahead of Kabs’ eagerly anticipated EP in 2023.
