From Soca Royalty, to much-loved stars, and even exciting newcomers, the Precision team has consistently kept its fans on their toes at the end of every Carnival season, in breathless anticipation of a collection of music that can be enjoyed all year round.

This year, We Muzik, Vol 5, Trinidad and Tobago, not only lives up to, but also surpasses all of those expectations. 

Double Monarch holder Machel Montano, appears along with Queen of Bacchanal Destra Garcia, in addition to such talented artists as Blaxx, Kees Dieffenthaller, Isaac Blackman, Nadia Batson, Patrice Roberts, Lyrikal, and Lil’Bitts. 

Also featured on this release are two of the most popular acts in the region, Mr. Killa and Skinny Fabulous, as well as the amazing Dancehall performer, Aidonia, who makes his debut in the Soca arena on the hit-filled Sun Dance Riddim. 

Radio personalities 5Star Akil, Jaigá, Devon Matthews, and Sekon Sta keep the energy flowing and lively on this compilation with their single songs alongside their crowd favourites on the Sando, Emergency, and Sun Dance Riddims. 

Not to be left out, newcomers Preedy and GBM Nutron, (already a well respected producer in his own right) successfully transition from soca-writers extraordinaire to bonafide soca-artists on this very album, which also includes the top Road March contenders M.O.R, Mash Up, and Run To D Front. 

Available right now! Make sure to get your CD in store or at all major digital distributors!

Repeating Islands

Roy Cape and Jocelyne Guilbault

Joshua Surtees speaks to the author of Roy Cape: A Life on the Calypso and Soca Bandstand, a book to be released in September, the book will be a must-read for calypso and soca historians, a fascinating addition to the canon of work on the genre, documenting Cape’s star-studded half-century career. “The book is an experiment in storytelling,” says Jocelyne Guilbault, lecturer in ethno- musicology at University of California, Berkeley and scholar of Caribbean popular music. 

She’s in Trinidad working on her forthcoming book, Roy Cape: A Life on the Calypso and Soca Bandstand. While it’s a scholarly text, printed by Duke University Press, it’s essentially an autobiography of Roy Cape, co-written by the man himself.

Some chapters are ethnographic accounts of Cape’s management of his band and the skill of keeping musicians together over decades—how he recruits, his democratic decision-making policy and transparent band wages. Another chapter is a photographic…
