He promises that this year’s Machel Monday event will be the greatest of all time, much like the music he’s unleashed on his brand new 20 track compilation, aptly entitled, GOAT. Machel Montano has evolved. His journey to this point, has undoubtedly led him along a path of self realization and contemplative analysis of the spiritual realm. This year, as Montano released his 44th album at the age of 45, he made it a point of connecting the dots in an effort to truly globalize the sound of Soca- the genre he said, has fed his kids.

Fellow soca artistes certainly came out to support.

Launching the album at The Residence lounge and bar at One Woodbrook Place on Thursday night, Montano, swamped by fans, the media and friends like Nadia Batson, Farmer Nappy, DLoxx, M1, St. Lucia’s Motto, SuperBlue, Skinny Fabulous of St. Vincent and Chutney soca artist, KI, among others, he explained that collaborations are what’s needed to take Soca music forward at this time. The HD band boss praised the producers and songwriters who’ve worked alongside him, among them, Motto, Skinny Fabulous, Travis World, Jamesy P and Jovan James, for their dedication to the art form and their involvement in all that he has brought forward in recent time.

The crowd, amped for the new music, cautiously reveled with delight as Machel took the stage explaining that this particular launch performance had not been rehearsed. “I just came from three days in the studio. I just flew in from Barbados so none of this is rehearsed,” he told fans. Despite that, he did not disappoint. G O A T , the 20 track album, which was recorded over the past year, will feature songs like, “Hot Gyal”, “Brace Up”, “Day One”, “ Workie”, “Jammin” “Young Boy” and “De Road” with US RnB singer, Ashanti.

The album is available on iTunes for just $9.99 and according to Machel, more caribbean people must support the art form and the artistes by purchasing the albums from legitimate online retailers like iTunes in order for Soca music as a genre to be given it’s very own category.

As the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago continues to leave many on the twin island with a bitter taste in their mouths, another local artiste has stood up in protest, using his platform to draw attention to the problem. RKG’s new single, ‘Flatline’ comes on the heels of a recently released track by Gospel singer, Jaron Nurse, that deals with the same issue of crime.

Drug abuse and gang warfare are plaguing the country. RKG says he had been in studio, prepared to lay the vocals for another ladies anthem when something struck him. “I suddenly felt like I needed to contribute something positive,” he said in a chat with EBUZZTT. The song speaks about a young man who got caught up with guns and was murdered. The second verse speaks about a young woman who got caught up with a gangster. She also died. The track’s message deals with the inevitable consequences that face people who choose negative lifestyles.
