The carnival excitement is here. A short season means a rapid succession of fetes. Last weekend, on the heels of Scorch’s 1st Jam on New Year’s Day, EBUZZTT took on Tribe Ice at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain and as was expected, the masses made good of the invitation to fete till dawn.

In typical Tribe fashion, the venue was well laid out. Performances from Skinny Fabulous, Shal Marshall, Marzville, Lyrikal, Erphaan Alves, Voice and Marge Blackman and Patrice Roberts thrilled most and those who weren’t impressed probably didn’t have enough of those Patron shots that were being passed around, to wet their palate. Just saying.

Patrice Roberts’ body is banging.

Now, Patrice Roberts, rocking a lilac colored pixie cut and showing off her sexy physique, which made us all stop and wonder for a minute, was definitely the show stopper. Her confidence has taken off and with what some are calling the Road March anthem in her back pocket, the young Soca mom killed it when she stepped on stage to belt out “Criminal Wine” with Lyrikal. He too had a pretty good set, and with Voice following a short time later, the crowd was given a great sense of what’s to come at fetes this season.

Erphaan Alves is having a phenomenal season. His song, “OverDue” is a crowd favorite.

Tribe’s events have always attracted the young and impressionable. The DJs have however, continuously proven that they have a pretty limited appreciation for the amazing cadre of soca artistes who, year after year, give the people so many powerful anthems to enjoy at fetes. This year, once again, the DJs couldn’t seem to cure themselves of the “Machelitis” they’ve been infected with for years. With a number of blockbuster 2018 anthems already being blazed on the urban airwaves, the DJs at Tribe Ice failed to effectively show the partying public that there are a smorgasbord of big tunes this season, including Road March champions, Ultimate Rejects’ “Vex”, “Whole Day” and “Inside De Festival,” and not forgetting new music from Destra Garcia who has give us a wicked Carnival hit in, “Gimme,” Ricardo Drue and Fay Ann Lyons’ collaboration on Drue’s Antigua Soca Monarch winning hit, “Another Level,” and even Shurwayne Winchester has a monster Road March contender in a track called, “Wi Carnival.”

The season is here. Shal Marshall, Patrice Roberts, Kees and Erphaan Alves are out the gates with tunes that have the public eating out of their hands, but once again, without the versatility of the DJ, a number of incredible soca anthems just won’t see the light of day.

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.

Nailah in Switzerland.

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.
