Archive for the ‘Machel Montano’ tag
Mixpak label boss Dre Skull has created another banger of a riddim, and he continues to build his reputation for featuring only the best vocalists in Caribbean music on his productions. Beenie Man, Popcaan, Natalie Storm, and, yes, even the Soca King himself, Machel Montano, have blessed the Loudspeaker Riddim, each with their unique flow.
Although I think they all killed it, Machel Montano takes the number one spot on this one. It’s a rare treat to hear Machel on a straight up dancehall beat, so maybe that’s just me relishing the moment. But that’s alright. I’m just gonna keep on relishing.
It’s always a pleasure to see the growth of my good friend Walshy Fire. Some folks just know him as a member of the Miami-based super sound system Black Chiney but he brings a lot more to the table than that. In addition to just being an all around good dude and back breaking club DJ, he puts out fire mixtapes and recently transitioned from being a pirate radio DJ to rocking a mainstream radio gig on 103.5 The Beat in South Florida. The show he hosts on Sunday evenings alongside Lady Terra is called Rockers Island (tune in via the web) and I’m tripping that he just interviewed soca king Machel Montano a week ago. Big ups to Eddie STATS Houghton for posting this over on Large Up. Check out this clip of Walshy and Montano chatting as the former soca monarch addresses rumors of him being on drugs (I missed that one!), why he skipped Carnival in Trinidad this year, and what his plans are for 2010.
