Produced by his own imprint New Planet Records, this new compilation of dancehall anthems are fueling his 2015 summer tour, which is currently underway in Europe. “Determination captures how I feel about my musical journey and where I’m at right now,” reveals Stein. “I work hard every day to create quality dancehall music for fans and I’m determined to keep fulfilling my mission of spreading dancehall music to all corners of the globe.”
Bubbling with eight electrifying tracks, Determination delivers contemporary dancehall music at its best, and boasts up-tempo, bass-driven beats bound to send dancehall fans into a frenzy. The lead tracks “Concrete Steppa” and “New Rolex” speak of Stein’s determination to strive and succeed in life, and are positive messages he hopes to instill in his fan base. Other tunes like “How Yuh Suh Bad” are for the ladies, as the collection has something for everyone.
Pounding the pavement in Jamaica for years, Stein is currently on an extended tour in Europe to promote Determination, and recently performed for fans in Germany and Sweden. He looks forward to bringing his brand of music to wherever it is in demand. “You have to go where people want to see you and just take your music directly to them,” discloses Stein. “So I’m out here in Europe for the entire summer and taking every opportunity to perform wherever I can, so I can bring my songs to longtime fans and also earn new ones.” This work ethic also has Stein in the studio between shows, as he puts the finishing touches on his upcoming sophomore album, which will be released later this year from FOX FUSE.
“Stein has consistently been one of the most clever lyricists in dancehall music,” states Zack Cohen, CEO of FOX FUSE. “We’re fans of his work and we’re thrilled to work alongside him and deliver his music to the dancehall massive, globally.”
