From deep in the heartland of all things sultry and sweet, comes Precision’s very first riddim release for Carnival 2014. It is a tribute to their birthright and also an explosive celebration of the fact that without the South there could be no Soca.
The aptly named Sando Riddim, has been specially crafted by the team to musically exemplify the majesty of their particular corner of the earth.
A hypnotic bassline embedded with honeyed melodies, combined with stunning voices and gifted writers, brings to life the distinctive magic that fills the air as you head south of the lighthouse.
The fireworks begin in Farmer Nappy’s song, which describes the natural friendliness and all encompassing sense of welcome felt not only in his native Siparia, but throughout our twin islands. That homey feeling, which turns each familiar face into “Family”.
Also featured on this riddim is one of Precision’s very own songwriters, Akeem “Preedy” Chance, who debuts as an artist with the sizzling track, “Wining Champion”. He gives an exhilarating performance as he steps into the limelight, more than ready to show another facet to his talent.
Patrice Roberts is the sole female in this release, but she holds her own and in “Doh Rough Meh”, fervently demands that this season, all men should mirror their southern brothers and focus on keeping up with the seductive foreplay of the women this year…or else.
Speaking of southern seduction, the reigning Soca Monarch, Machel Montano, beguiles the ladies with “Drop It Down”, assuring them that this carnival he will provide their derrières with safe haven, and endless enjoyment as he takes them far deeper south than they have ever been before.
Never one to be left out when it comes to paying tribute to the southlands, Jaiga joins forces with Nutron for “Gyal Season”; a harmonious dedication to the exotic beauties who traverse these isles in rampant variety, adding much appreciated spice to very grateful male eyes and lives.
Soul singer Isaac Blackman takes us out spirit dancing in his selection “S.O.C.A. (Soul Of Calypso)". With his stirring vocals he awakens the most dormant of feelings, as he lifts us to heights of musical ecstasy where Soca equals love and love is shared through Soca. ©Mystie Thongs
