REVIEW: Kings - Don't Worry Bout It out on Universal Music Germany

KINGS, the most successful single in New Zealand, "Do not Worry Bout It", is taking course to conquer the world. After the song was signed by Warner Music in New Zealand and the Ministry of Sounds label Astrx in Australia, the contagious catchy "Do not Worry Bout It" has reached # 1 in the New Zealand Shazam and iTunes Charts.

"Being literate was literally a dream that came true," says KINGS. "Music production has always been my strong point, but I really want to deepen it and then, as a result, to sign a large label in such a short time, not only gives me more self-confidence but also honors me very much."

KINGS is no stranger to the music circles in Auckland's North Shore, where his studio and record label Arch Angel Records sits. KINGS has been producing music for six years and has worked with a number of other producers such as BulletProof, Dan Aux, General Lee, Jolyon Petch (Club Luxury), eSquire Uk, Crazi Biza and Dick Johnson.

During his gig at the Bluesky Mana Island Festival, KINGS spontaneously and only with his iPhone turned a music video to accompany the single release of "Do not Worry Bout It". The single and the video are already getting a huge support, which will continue to grow, just like KING's fan base, which is expanding as fast in New Zealand as abroad.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Excellent mainstream track with a nice hiphouse style vocal that clicks well with the lazy deep house groove, the chopped vocal parts and the whole tropical atmosphere. The remix package is ace with Filatov & Karas Remix adding the nu disco touch with funky disco friendly bassline, chunky wonky groove and even electronic synthy hooks for a highly effective version.  Friendless Remix is the darker progressive techno version with minimal driving dark basslines and thumping groove while some of the vocals are applied highly distorted. Ryan Riback Remix is the straight forward trap house remix with tribalish grooves, deep basslines, xylophone melodies and the addictive vocal on top. Great trap house breakdown is followed by the cool danceable groove. Lastly Duke & Jones Remix go deeper and more relaxing with chill out liquid ambient trapish version that carry you easily away. #PureGold Love It[/content]
