West Indian | Alison Hinds | Barbados/'Trinidad 2020

0 comments

Who we are, what we are and how we do it is what Alison Hinds wants the rest of the World to understand... after all, we are West Indians playing Soca! Oh hell yes, we have a new music release, a great music release for carnivals in 20200... the resurgence of Alison  Hinds!

Play Soca, play Soca... we are all West Indians who understand how and when to have fun. We use Soca to bring out the beast, to feel the rhythm and making time to have a party. This song, "West Indian" is the newly released anthem from Alison Hinds for Carnivals across the region and  will become a timeless selection. We love everything about the song.

Just listening to Alison on this track one can tell that she loves what she is doing... the excitement exudes from her voice and then there is the music. What an awesome vibe! Jelani "Pops" Shaw and P.A.G.E. Productions hit this one out of the Park. Oh, and by the way, one of our favourite artists provided background vocals on the track; yes, that is the voice of Marvay pulling up the rear.

Alison Hinds has dropped the song for the season... we mean she has the song that will make you feel alive and thankful to be right where you are, where ever you are experiencing the vibe of "West Indian"... pure niceness! Just keep playing Soca Alison!

We encourage you to support the artiste and the production team. We want you to spread the word about the song; please use the comment feature of this post to share your thoughts about the song with your peers. Keep in mind that fair use of social media is an excellent method to promote the artiste and song.  Take a few minutes and comment on the song/music production... the artiste and production team will appreciate your feedback.

As a consideration, it should be apparent that the success of this song depends on your support, please share this post. Make a bold pronouncement regarding the virtues of the song and singer; hype up the vibe and tell your friends about this music release! Now it is up to you to ensure that this song rides the airwaves. Please call your favorite radio jocks and request your song of choice. Right now, we invite you to share your thoughts about the song and music production.

Feeling It | Swappi x Ultimate Rejects | Trinidad 2020

0 comments
Baron's "Feeling It" is one of those songs that you really can't make better... it is sacrosanct! Baron's sweet sing style and the music brilliance of Leston Paul is legendary. So what can Swappi and the Ultimate Rejects bring to the table for a re-fix or remake of this classic song by Baron? This is called taking a chance and the outcome is left for you to determine if it makes the grade or hits the sweet spot.

So let's get to it.

This is new music, a remake of a classic song, for Trinidad and Tobago carnival 2020 by Swappi and the Ultimate Rejects. This is "Feeling It"; can you feel it?

Feeling it by Baron? Why? Isn't this the music my parents grew up listening? Duh, well yes, and they are still listening to the same music decades later! Feeling it by Baron is a classic and, as we mentioned in our opening statement... sacrosanct! Swappi and the UR are taking a chance with this remake. So, did they hit the sweet spot? First off, Swappi did the right thing by bring in Baron and the legendary Leston Paul into the project. Even as a cameo appearance Baron's place in the video is significant. Baron's sweet singing style can only be imitated by Sugar Aloes (yes Michael Osouna) so what can Swappi and the UR bring to the table? Simply put, create a feel that the young people can gravitate to and appreciate. Get away from the ballad style and add some pot to the vibe. Did they accomplish that, yes they did!

This is not your parent's version but one updated to draw into the narrative another generation of Soca Music lovers who all want to "Feel It". Both versions will live on and play-on engaging old and young and all in between. We love love and congratulate all those involved in this remake of Baron's classic "Feeling It". Swappi and UR... well done fellas!
