The futuristic, heavy bass, grime-meets-soca formula of Stag Riddim: Part 2, produced by Klase Gonzales and mixed by Neel “Fadda” Dwala, are signature sounds of 1st Klase Records, a progressive label that continues to craft and compose the future of soca music.

Machel Montano – H.M.A.

29 January, 2014 Leave a comment

Official Music Video for Machel Montano’s 2014 Soca Music hit H.M.A. (Happiest Man Alive)!

Directed and Produced by Damian Marcano for Blue Cinamon Group.

Song produced by Alex “Kubayashi” Barnwell. Written by Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle, Machel Montano & Alex Barnwell. 2014 All Rights Reserved

Innovative and groundbreaking describes the upcoming release of the collaborative
effort between International Soca Superstar, Machel Montano and the critically acclaimed director from the motion picture “God Loves The Fighter”, Damian Marcano. After the success of “Fog” and “Float” it was inevitable for them to team back up yet again.

When the two got together they knew they wanted to do something different for “Happiest Man Alive”. The video concept begins with Montano crash landing to a place called Planet Mas. At first sight, the area seems quite barren, but upon further inspection he realizes he is not alone. After following a beautiful woman across the desert-like planet¬¬¬¬¬¬ he finds himself in a magical garden where the inhabitants experience eternal euphoria. It is a futuristic play on the creation of Man finding his life partner and sharing Happiness with his Woman.
