Jason Lankino is an urban musician based in Auckland, New Zealand, often assosiated with popularizing the urban tropical genre in the region. Compiling several sounds, fusing both traditional and contemporary styles, his album "The Grand Unification Vol.1" [produced by Mauricio 'Melodiko' Jr.] is expected to deliver more Caribbean-infused trop, whilst appealing to hip hop and reggae/roots cirlces as well.
While keeping hips swinging to their signature latin rhythms, Lankino and Melodiko also venture to address political issues in some of their more sombre numbers. Drawing parallels between Lusophone Asia and Latin America, the pair flow across vocal styles and comfortably delievers both in Spanish and English.
Since the rise of reggaeton and latin urban music, Lankino ended up linking with Cuba's formidable underground music machine - Trespeso Music, with urban music maestro Kiki Pro, along with Goblin Records' Tony Trauma.
