FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY (FOX FUSE) – The futuristic side of soca music is on display on the Body Up Riddim – Various Artists, available worldwide on all major digital retailers on September 10, 2013, with pre-order available today, distributed by Precision Digital. Featuring some of the top performers in the genre, the riddim is produced by Trinidadian-based Donadoni Productions, with prolific violinist-turned-producer Andre “Donadoni” Donawa at the helm. The riddim was composed for Carnival 2013, where it lit up playlists and stages across fetes as one of the sexiest offerings of the season, and now makes its bow internationally as it becomes available to fans of the genre, across the world.
Captained by none other than soca star Destra with her infectious “A Million Smiles,” Erphaan Alves with the sexy “Dis Carnival (Your Gyal Is Mine),” Blaxx featuring Umi Marcano on the energetic “Move That Body,” and anchored by “Body Up Instrumental,” Body Up Riddim is bound to drive bodies in a frenzy across fetes and on dance floors for years to come.
Donawa describes his production as hybrid soca, as he fuses soca with futuristic, electronic sounds, incorporating the flavors of the Caribbean along with international influences, namely EDM (electronic dance music). Joining him on this ambitious ride is Trinidadian producer Keron “Sheriff” Thompson, the creative force behind Bunji Garlin’s hit, “Differentology,”who engineered the Body Up Riddim to perfection, making it a must-have for music lovers everywhere.
Body Up Riddim will be available worldwide from all major digital retailers on September 10, 2013, with pre-order available now, fromPrecision Digital. Please direct all press inquires to the FOX FUSE Publicity Department at 1-212-300-3813 or email@example.com.

The Kalinda dance was brought to the Caribbean slave plantations from the Kongo and Angola. In Trinidad the Kalinda accompanied a development of the African warrior game of stick fighting and is practiced in arenas called “Gayelles”.
Two young Trinidadian internationally certified multidisciplined martial artists re-discovered their roots in this unique Trinidadian martial art and were accepted for mentorship by living legends of the art.
Follow Keegan and Benji as with humility, respect and the total commitment of the martial artist they enter the potentially lethal arena of the Gayelle which to them is like a ring of liberation, “where I am a human being and I deserve to be alive and anybody in this circle I respect because they understand the value of life.”

With every inhaled breath, palpable tension swarms through the barely restrained bodies of restless masqueraders.One can feel the energy of multiple island summer festivals throbbing in the air, and the stirring of riotous feet awaiting that particular fuel needed to propel them across the black carpets of the Caribbean.Precision Productions has listened attentively and using all of these emotions has conjured one rhythmic inoculation that is sure to relieve the entire region.
This cure comes in the declared release of the “Emergency Riddim”.
As the musical alarms sound off, a masterful team of artists is called in and placed on siren duty, each with a specific mission in mind.
In charge of sharing tactical information is St. Lucia‘s current Groovy King, Teddyson “TJ” John, who alongside his crafty writing partner, Telvin John, hooks all with “Backa”, which is Lucian slang for “Your Crew” and is one part must-have fete list, one part declaration of no-safe-gyration zone, and one part urgent road instruction.
Meanwhile Fya Empress, the first ever triple Monarch title holder in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, shows off her skill as she whips feters into a fevered state, with “We Ready”, which was written by the dynamic duo of Akeem “Preedy” Chance and Stephanas “Steffy” Ramgattie of WiiMAD fame.
Majesty continues to reign as the Caribbean Queen of Bacchanal, Destra, joins the rumble intent on leaving nothing behind but dust in the frenetic “Mash Up” that was authored by Patrick “Mista Vybe” Gordon.
Bacchanal rules in the middle of all this action as St Lucia’s 2010 Power Soca Monarch and Road March King, DJ HP, delivers an energetic illustration of the scenario painted by Mista Vybe who does double writing duty in this riddim, showing off his witty side, this time, in the mauvaise langue tummy-tickler “Maddd Again”.
Now with this sure remedy flowing through the atmosphere, one question… are you ready to be charged with aiding and abetting this Precision Soca Emergency?
