Soca Producer to Machel, Bunji, Nadia Re-Enters Performance Arena.

Published

There’s nothing in the entertainment rulebook that says a music producer cannot be an artist. You’ve heard the name Juelio Nelson, haven’t you? The young, Moruga Trinidad native is one of Trinidad and Tobago’s fastest rising music producers, having worked with Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Superblue for whom he produced the hit single, Fantatsic Friday,’ as well as other top shelf artistes like, Nadia Batson, Blaxx, JW & Blaze, Olatunji and most recently, Buffy. He’s no joke. Juelio is however much more than meets the eye.

Sharp vocal ability to say the least, accompanied by the love and encouragement of many of the artistes that he’s worked with, Juelio is hitting the ground hard, unleashing a new single that sits properly beside that of Buffy on a riddim he created called the Republic Riddim. “Before I got into music production, I was a vocalist,” he explained, noting that as a young man growing up in Trinidad and Tobago’s entertainment arena, he had competed in a number of competitions, among them 12 and Under and even the Junior Soca Monarch. He admits to having been sidetracked a bit when he got into music production though, taking on that career path wholeheartedly. “A lot of artistes kept telling me it was time to get back into singing. Nadia Batson was a huge inspiration for my return,” he said, explaining that Buffy too, pushed him to deliver a track on the new riddim.

The new single is called “Stuck on You” and was written by Juelio, making it clear that he’s pretty much an all rounder in the business of entertainment. “I think it’s really important for me to come out of my comfort zone- get back into the music and deliver music that will speak for itself,” said Juelio. With plans to release another single in the coming weeks, the music producer who is now working arduously on being an
artiste the world will enjoy, is pushing full speed ahead, fearless, optimistic about the future. “ I know I have what it takes. I just need to show the world,” he said.

Why You’ll Wanna Catch Busy Signal in Trinidad This Weekend.

One of dancehall’s leading contemporary artistes is on his way to Trinidad and Tobago for the highly anticipated and much talked about Inferno concert being held on Saturday at the Jean Pierre Complex. Busy Signal’s been creating major waves in the hemisphere and further afield in the past few weeks, having teamed up with Brazil’s MC KevinHo on a track called ‘Loko’, that’s also shared with Brazil’s Tropikal Bass Killers and the prolific, Major Lazer. The Jamaican Singjay recently represented his homeland in Brazil where Brazil’s MTV Awards took place. On June 9th, Busy will take the stage with some of dancehall’s biggest names at the Inferno concert event- a show that organisers insist starts promptly at 10pm.

It’s not Busy Signal’s first time on T&T’s soil, however, in a concert affair that is being touted as a mammoth rejuvenation of true dancehall and reggae vibes in T&T, the energy surrounding Busy Signal’s inclusion on the Inferno cast, is second to none. “We see this as the perfect blend of dancehall and reggae. On one hand you have Capleton- an artist that’s known to defend it when it comes to that hardcore conscious vibe, and of course Sizzla’s never to be outdone in that arena. Then on the other end of the spectrum we’re giving patrons good vibes, conjuring good feelings and nostalgia of days gone by with Barrington Levy- an essential name when it comes to reggae music. This is a man who ran things in the early 90s and has a catalogue of music that many of the up and coming acts could only hope to achieve. When Busy Signal’s added to that dynamic, it could only be magic on show night at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port-of-Spain,” said the organizer. Levy meanwhile, performed in St. Lucia on the weekend- the perfect warm up to what’s going to unfold in Trinidad.
