Soca State of Mind | Kernal Roberts | Trinidad & Tobago 2015

0 comments
This is new music for Trinidad and Tobago's carnival 2015. It is the sound and song from the son of the great Lord Kitchener. This is the music and vibe of Kernal Roberts and the song is entitled "Soca State of Mind".

When I listen to this song it sounds like a song that was written for Machel Montano to sing. Then again Kernal not only played drums for HD but wrote and produced music for Machel. After all is said and done when you look at the writing credits for the song the name Machel Montano in also there. Some things never change but sometimes the roles are reversed. This is Kernal Roberts time to shine!

Take a listen to the song and let us know what you think about the song and Kernal's vibe on the track. Did he hit the sweet spot? We want to hear from you. Please use the comment feature of this posting to leave your remarks. All comments (clean language) will be posted.

Brace | Bunji Garlin | Trinidad & Tobago EDM/Soca 2015

0 comments
Brace, the song, is not your typical Soca music release; hell no, it is not! This is a production that came from the extremely talented iM4Rio along with 'Darkfader' aka 'Bunji Garlin' racking up points on the lyrical and vocal side of the production. This is EDM/Soca and the song is entitled "Brace"... 'yuh better hold on to something'!

This is one track that I was looking forward to hearing from the moment the track name was mentioned but especially because it was the brainchild on the production side of iMaRio of Kes The Band. If you were waiting on something to 'wake you up' then this release has what it takes to wake up all carnival feters... the ting now start! Damn iM4Rio but down a wicked vibe for Bunji!

I am aware that many of the die hard Soca music lovers will not gravitate to this song but it was not created for 'Old People' musically speaking but age itself could come into play. This vibe is for those whom are young and young at heart. This music was created not just to impact the local scene but more so to appeal to the international audiences. So let's put it this way, "I've got the Ace of Spades" and it is time to BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Brace should do well on the European scene where EDM music is a staple but it could also get its fair share of play in England and the US where Bunji's fan base continues to grow. I like the song and especially the vibe presented by the producer. Well done iM4Rio! Let the music play on and good vibes prevail!

Music Release Notes:
This Edm/Soca pushes the limit again in a way the perfectly suites the Viking Bunji Garlin. Here we go for a wild ride as we approach the rest of the world again from the Trinidadian point of view.

Production Notes:
Song Title: BRACE
Soca/EDM Release:
Written and Performed by Ian Alvarez (Bunji Garlin)
Produced by: iM4RiO of Kes The Band.
Mixed and Mastered by: Richie Beretta.

Motivation | Shal Marshall | Trinidad & Tobago 2015

0 comments
This is new music from Shal Marshall for Trinidad and Tobago's carnival 2015. The song is entitled "Motivation" and is posted here today for your listening pleasure. This song was written, produced, mixed and mastered by GBM.

This song remains constant from the start to the end. There are no highs or lows just a very consistent vibe from the start to the end. The song does not have any flourishes but has a vibe to keep you wining with someone special at just the right pace.

Shal Marshall does his thing but it may not be enough to catapult him or the song to the top of the charts. This is just a good song but it does not bring anything new or special to the table. I am sure you will 'take a wine' with this one for the upcoming festival but that is about it for this song.

Take a listen and let us know what you think about Shal Marshall's latest offering. Is it one that you will be calling the radio stations to play? Or it is just another release that will be played today but forgotten tomorrow?

Whole Day We Jammin' | Black Dan feat. Blaxx | T'dad & Tobago 2015

0 comments
This song was originally released for Grenada's carnival 2013 but has been reprized as a duet with Blaxx out of Trinidad and Tobago. This one should be considered new music for Trinidad and Tobago's carnival 2015!

The music on this riddim has a very sweet flow; the addition of Blaxx to the vibe solidifies the track and makes it marketable for the Trinidad and Tobago market. This is new music for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2015. This is "Whole Day We Jammin" Redux!

Production Notes:
Song Title: Whole Day We Jammin'
Riddim Name: eX+5 Riddim (2013)
Executive Producer - Rubato Studios
Produced by Xpert Studios

Doh Fraid | Fay-Ann Lyons & Bunji Garlin | T'dad & Tobago 2015

0 comments
Well look what we have here... a song from Trinidad and Tobago's husband and wife Soca Power House of Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez. The song is entitled "Doh Fraid"for this upcoming carnival in 2015.

Do they have a hit song here.... the jury is out on this one and much of the conversation will be centered on Fay-Ann's involvement on the track.

Take a listen to the song and let us know how you feel about it. The music has a nice flow and both artists delivered with excellent vocal performances; but is that enough?

Dwain "Dwaingerous" Antrobus did his thing on the production end and now it is all up to you to determine how well this song does for the upcoming festival. Not not because I said all of those good things it means that this song will be a hit... not at all.Some will surely give it the thumbs down. I don't get the feeling that this one will do well at all... let's see how the radio stations handle it... let's see if Bunji and Fay-Ann can make some headway with this song.


One thing that is commendable about this song is the lyrical content. Someone took time to put together lyrics that tell a story. Lyrics that make you feel proud that you are a West Indian who understands the culture and mentality of  our people from every island.

Some of these new songs take some time to get used to and sometimes the initial appeal may be luke-warm, This is a good song and I especially enjoyed Bunji's flow on the track. Fay-Ann was consistent with her vocals. Either you like her or you don't!

The bottom line is that this is a good song, not an instant hit (some will disagree with me),  but one that will eventually grow on you as the feting season gets going. Enjoy the vibez!
