Skinny Banton stands ready to rep hard for Grenada.

He’ll likely be plastered across the fete circuit in T&T in 2020 and while Grenada’s Skinny Banton did not win Grenada’s Groovy Soca Monarch this year, his single, ‘Wrong Again’ is making a massive impression in Carnival country, Trinidad and Tobago.

Across the airwaves, the song, with its underlying brass line and unrefined calypso grip, is nothing short of a fable brought in alignment with the Caribbean’s favourite sound, through just the right melodies and beats. ‘Wrong Again’ is a groove by BPM standards and while the masses and even the radio personalities are saying Carnival 2020 is all about power hits, this is one track that we know, will be unstoppable in the season ahead.

Skinny Banton is one of Grenada’s more prominent artistes. He’s best known for his 2014 hit single, “Soak It.” That song, while released in early 2014, made its way to the mainstream music market in the Caribbean in 2015. His style while very authentic, is purely Grenadian and simply perfect. His early inclusion on the soca hit list proves a very important point… that being, there’s a place for everyone in the soca biz, a business led by a genre that’s still spreading its wings, meandering through the cities of the world like nothing else has.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
