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?
