UNQUENCHABLE – THE “FIREBALL” STORY

28 February, 2014 Leave a comment

THIS is a Biographical Documentary of Trinidadian artiste Rohan Richards aka Fireball.

In early 2006, he emerged above the rest as the first winner of the Synergy Soca Star competition.

This was quickly followed in 2007 by his first hit “What I Want” which morphed from soca to a reworked hit by French DJ and remixer Bob Sinclar that same year and topped the European Club Music Charts.

“What I Want” in 2008, was released by Record Plant Records in the US and hit the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Charts at number 14. that year, he was in contention with Madonna, Ne Yo and Rihanna.

This Documentary is a team effort by Ryan Chance Bascombe, Maria Pantin, Tracey Jordon, Natasha Ramnath and Dylan Thomas.

The StarDance Riddim

The StarDance Riddim
Produced by Ashwin ‘Smash’ Seegobin
Mixed and Mastered by Precision Productions.

Combining his Trinibagonian roots with a very English upbringing the newest member of the Precision Productions team has spun a wondrous musical web to seductively enfold listeners from the Caribbean to beyond the great pond.
Ashwin “Smash” Seegobin’s StarDance Riddim, is an energetic culmination of 18 months of careful training as a producer and engineer at Precision. With Soca and mainstream Dance music being the strongest influences on him, he created this riddim as a way to meld the feel of music from TnT to the throbbing energies he experienced in London. The result being an exhibition of exotic melodies only such an eclectic background could generate.
Emboldened by his previous release with Jrod Records, the Cosmic Riddim, Smash enlisted a range of talented voices to give flight to his tuneful ambitions.
These include the very Caribbean cast of Tian Winter, Dale Saunders, Cherise Ransome, Fireball, Ricardo Drue ft Crissanji, and Nikisha.
This thrilling blend of enchanting production work with this uniquely gifted collection of singers gives this riddim a sure place on international charts as well as in all discerning music-loving hearts.

I actually find the majority of songs kinda weak. Fireball’s voice makes his song stand out for me. I guess this StarDance Riddim needs for me to be popping Mollys to be So High I’ll be Levitating and walking/dancing amongst the Stars…

Production is nice tho… maybe some radio/driving along the coast choons… i’ll keep playing it and program myself to like it… I LOVED COSMIC!!!

    WTF is the concept? At least it looks polished… not Polish… even though it was produced in Europe.
