Lion Rezz ‘Rockin’

Written by on December 6, 2021

This week’s Local Eyes from Lion Rezz his brand track ‘Rockin’. New Zealand has always been blessed with a vibrant cultural heritage that has allowed Reggae and R&B to thrive in its community and Lion Rezz is continuing that rich tradition.

Combining his edgy reggae grooves with luscious melodies, Rockin’ is a throwback to Jamaica’s original Lovers Rock vibe. The Wailers, Gregory Isaacs, and Maxi Priest would all have been proud of this exceptional journey into island love.

Rockin’ is an instant classic, travelling all the high points required to get the audience up and skanking. It is both immediately addictive and extraordinarily brilliant. Melodies tumble effortlessly from behind the microphone as his rare groove draws on the sound system culture that emanated from recording hubs like Studio One. The infectious bass takes you to sun kissed shores as his vocals fill you with a sense of joy for the world around him. Every single musician is on point as Rockin’ draws on all the influences of the originators.

The growing pedigree of Lion Rezz is undeniable and after collaborating on Runtingz Anthem which received over 320k streams in under a month and went Gold in 2020, also receiving gold status with his debut single Do Anything off his debut EP A Lions Worth – the future success of Rockin’ is guaranteed. It is the track that will propel his career to the next level and keep him there for years to come.

The future of New Zealand Lovers Rock is safe in his hands as his unique brand of reggae takes to the stage.
