Look Trouble Again. Shurwayne Signals The Rebellion.

Soca artistes remain resolute in their effort to feed the masses who live for the genre, with the vibe that Soca brings annually. While for some, the music remains a seasonal thought, to countless others, soca music, as infectious as it is, cannot be a once per year thing. For one of Soca’s bosses, a power soca release was a no brainer for 2022.

On Boxing Day, Shurwayne Winchester released a track called, “Look Trouble Again.” He gave it the acronym, ‘LTA’ and proceeded to push it hard across all major radio stations in Trinidad and Tobago and even across the Caribbean. Shurwayne said his only goal had been to “help the people.”

Trinidad and Tobago, the home of the carnival festival the world anticipates annually, has been, like many other territories, under serious restrictions amid the Covid-19 pandemic. These restrictions have all but totally crippled the entertainment industry and even with Carnival 2022’s true status still up in the air, Shurwayne’s telling soca and carnival lovers that the rebellion cannot be stifled.

“This track was set for release on three separate occasions and each time, it was held back,” he explained, saying that the song is a rebellious statement that expresses, in its truest way, the essence of Trinidad and Tobago’s people. The multiple title holder says the song had been sitting there since T&T’s initial lockdown, waiting for the perfect time for release. Together with US Virgin Islands based music producer, Kevre ‘Maestro’ Hendricks, the idea for the single, he explained, was bred from a desire to help the people who’d been stuck in a rut, yearning to de-stress, amid a pandemic the likes of which, no one, the world over had ever experienced.

“Music has always been a tool to help people de-stress. Human beings were not meant to be stuck indoors and inactive as much as we’ve been during this time. Looking on as the world came to a grinding stop, I felt that we had to be ready for that moment the opportunity presented itself, to give people that tool that could ultimately help them when they needed it most,” said Shurwayne.

Now, a song that Shurwayne says, took him into the soul of veteran entertainer, Leroy Calliste- the Black Stalin, has been unleashed. “The spirit of his delivery flows throughout this particular release. There’s a freedom in who we are as a people and like Stalin did time and time again with his music, I saw the assignment here, and I know the people will feel it when they hear it.” What’s amazing is that much like the music delivered by the Black Stalin- a true icon that Shurwayne says he celebrates and is grateful for, this new song is built from the ground up with live instruments. “The brass, the horn line scream freedom. When you listen to it, you actually feel like, ‘oh yes! The gates are now open!’” he said.

Trinidad and Tobago’s borders now open and beach lovers granted limited access following a lifted State of Emergency, Shurwayne is optimistic. He however maintains that even as an entertainer, he must be a responsible citizen. ‘Look Trouble Again’ is respectfully rebellious, since the track’s lyrics do not defy present day measures aimed at keeping the population safe.

‘Look Trouble Again’ is available on all popular streaming platforms, including Apple Music, for purchase and download.

Island Lime Magazine Set to Take Caribbean Energy to Global Heights.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
