New York Soca | Bunji Garlin | NYC 2016/Trinidad & Tobago 2017

0 comments

Bunji Garlin just launched Brooklyn's Labor Day Carnival 2016 on the musical side of the festival! The Madderific lyricist from Trinidad and Tobago dropped a reflective time capsule track entitled "New York Soca".  It is officially time to vibez, wine and have a damn good time!

Sometimes it is a good thing to take a look back and reflect on a time that when we were younger and full of life. Times have changed and we have accrued experience, good and bad that makes what is going on today worthwhile. Musical minds have collaborated and delivered this song on a riddim that goes by the name "More Bash Riddim".  It is time for Carnival Vikings to rise and freestyle with the Ragga Soca champion aka Mr. Bunji Garlin. Tune Sweet and Riddim Mash UP!

The song is done 'freestyle' with Bunji doing what he does on so many radio station interviews. Consider this one a teaser for what is to come for Trinidad and Tobago's 2017 Carnival festival. In the mean time this one should do some serious damage in fetes starting tonight in Brooklyn. Enjoy the vibez!

Bam Bam | Mr. Killa | Trinidad & Tobago 2017

0 comments
Mr. Killa was on fire for Granada's Spice Mas 2016. The song presented here is entitled "Bam Bam". This one is solid with the production coming from Interface and LAZAbeam better known as JUSNOW! Now we drop it for Trinidad & Tobago's Carnival 2017!

The story behind this production surely comes from LAZAbeam who is from Trinidad and can relate to the story of Dame Lorraine (read below).

Mr. Killa has a solid music release for Carnival 2016. Bam Bam will have Damme Loraaines on fire for Carnival 2016 in Grenada. Spice Mas to the World!

Promo Clip from LargeUp Radio (England):
Even with lines like, “Mi like when di gyal dem bumpah big like carnival truck,” Mr. Killa‘s “Bam Bam” isn’t your typical soca ode to big butts. The Grenadian deejay’s latest contribution to the Spice Mas season features a distinctive combination of dutty, distorted bass and vintage calypso vibes courtesy of production duo Jus Now; to simply call this one a soca would hardly do justice to a complex arrangement that takes cues from dancehall, grime and Carmen.

The track samples a seminal early calypso from Syl Dopson & His Merry Boys that is considered the theme for Dame Lorraine, a traditional masquerade character at Trinidad Carnival known for her exaggerated bosom and behind.

“[Syl Dopson] was an English Trinidadian who had this five-piece band,” says Jus Now’s LAZABeam. “This is the era when calypso adopted a lot of clarinet and upright bass and that sort of thing. Basically what you are hearing is a very iconic folk melody in Trinidadian music, and that is one of the first times it was recorded in such an intricate and ornate manner.”

The track itself marries this vintage feel with the grimy U.K. bass sound Jus Now has become known for, bringing a new feel and sound to one of soca music’s most adventurous artists. “I met Killa a couple times in Trinidad, backstage at these concerts that we played together, and we expressed an interest in working with each other,” LAZABeam says of the “Rolly Polly” vocalist. “That was meant to be a riddim but it may have been too adventurous for some of the artists we had targeted, and Killa took it with open arms and murked it, basically.”

Listen to “Bam Bam” below and look out for the video premiering on LargeUp this month. Spice Mas 2016 is August 8th and 9th.

Pam Pam | Ketchup | Afro Beats Soca 2017

0 comments

We are presenting this song here because of the current radio play in Trinidad and Tobago. The song is entitled "Pam Pam" and the singer, from Nigeria, goes by the name "Ketchup" (real name Onyido Nkemjika). We think that if you love it then we should post it. This is a fun song, a twist of Shaggy's very popular track entitled "It Wasn't Me".

Press play and enjoy the song and the very humorous story portrayed in the video. We have posted the YouTube video and Sounccloud player... Enjoy!

Music Release Notes:
This video is a masterpiece by SixOSix artiste, Ketchup, and he titles it Pam!Pam!. The first line of the chorus already gets you hooked to the rest of the song as it takes you back to the nineties song by Shaggy - It Wasn't Me. Very funny video depicting his escapades with various ladies. Cool visuals and dance steps, funny story, and an all round entertaining piece. Enjoy
Produced by Orbeat.

Pattern Style | Denise Belfon, Nisha B & Rayza Saga | Trinidad & Tobago 2017

0 comments
We have another 'Pre-Carnival 2017' music release, and this one takes on a funky style that may be that fresh vibe you are looking forward to listening.  The song is entitled "Pattern Style" and features vocal performances by Denise Belfon, Nisha B and Rayza Saga.

We have to admit that the singing style of Rayza Saga is most favored on this track. His singing style secured this song from being mediocre to one that should be well received for Carnival 2017. We are confident that Denise Belfon will 'sell" this track when she performs on stage.  She will definitely 'Give Dem Bottom' bring mass appeal to the song.

Listen to the song and share your honest feedback here with us. We want to know what you think about the individual singing performances of Denise Belfon, Nisha B and Rayza Saga. The music production done by 'Feel Good Music', is excellent and full of vibe; yes we really like the vibe of the music.

Touch Down ( Travis World Roadmix) | King Bubba FM | T'dad 2017

0 comments

King Bubba dropped this one for Barbados Crop Over festival 2016; however, it was Travis World, out of San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago who engineered the Road Mix! So here we go again, we are giving Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2017 festival its very first Road Mix!

If you look for the song on-line (YouTube) you will have to search for "Mash Up" (When Ah Touch Down). We are leaving the Road Mix name as "Touch Down" thereby creating a redux for the original name. Same song a slighly different call to arms (in the name) but same sweet vibe. Enjoy the music.
