Archived: T&T Music Producer Calls On All Artistes To Mind Their Lyrics As ‘Unification’ Riddim Nears Release

Published

on

Tired of crime in the land of his birth- Trinidad and Tobago, one music producer is bent on doing something about it, the only way he truly knows how. He’s using his music as a means to defy the negative and promote positive energy. Master Mike has been around for many years- first as a personality at the now defunct 98.9YES FM in T&T and later transitioning to music producer and sharing his talent through the music he delivers at his Tuff Nut studio in San Juan. His latest project is called “Unification” and it’s a bit of a thought provoker.

Producer Master Mike (right) says everyone has a part to play in making T&T a better place.

Set for release in the days ahead, the new riddim features artistes out of the Urban Jungle Entertainment family- among them Ras Pilot, Zion Star, Manswell and Survivor. According to Mike, unification under God Almighty is the only answer. “In order to slow down the violence that is taking place we need to come together and make this stand .Every house,every street, every corner  and every community- this is everyone’s business,” he said, referring to the crime scourge that is affecting the people of Trinidad and Tobago. His words come even as several murders were recorded on the weekend- one leaving the family of a young barber in mourning after he was fatally shot during a robbery attempt at his place of business.

Together with the entertainers who are featured on this new riddim, Master Mike says he believes music can make a difference. “I live in the hood and everybody has a speaker at the side of the road and they be playing these unedited songs with the most obscene language loudly. There are children studying in the neighborhood and they are hearing all of that cursing and they are being hampered by it,” he said. Conscious of his stance as a positive music creator, Master Mike made an open call for artistes to understand what is happening. “I really wish the artistes could change the music and create more positive lyrics. If we continue like this, the place will get so bitter they will beg for the return of positive reggae and conscious music,” he added.

The artistes on the Unification riddim are now ready to unleash their individual projects all with one aim- to take a stance against crime and violence. They believe that each person has a role to play in bringing back the love that will essentially make Trinidad and Tobago a better place. “As we are about to launch our new riddim ‘Unification’, we are kindly asking each and everyone to keep supporting positive music and let’s all teach our children to know God .We will be forever loving Jah,” said Mike.

“In order to slow down the violence that is taking place we need to come together and make this stand .Every house,every street, every corner  and every community- this is everyone’s business.”   –  Master Mike

Entertainment Professionals Make Genuine Effort, Starting with T&T’s Youth.

It’s as easy as ABC for three entrepreneurs who aim to make a positive impact at some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most negatively impacted secondary schools. Last Tuesday, the ABC project got underway at the Morvant Laventille Secondary School. It was there that forth form pupils of the school gained insight into the entertainment industry through the personal stories of each of the initiative’s stakeholders. The project is spearheaded by media personality Hans Des Vignes, who has enlisted Montage Productions and Way Up 868 clothing Managing Director Romano Francois and BUZZconcepts founder Brendon Brathwaithe. The men urged students to remain optimistic and focused on their goals in order to succeed in life. Soca artiste, Nailah Blackman joined the project’s stakeholders in encouraging the teenagers to find balance between school and their passions before treating them to a performance.

Over the past year, Des Vignes, Francois and Brathwaithe noted with concern the negative attention some schools garnered across local media platforms. With the goal of boosting positivity in the school environment, they joined forces to create the ABC project.
“I believe if we each do something to help our country be a better place, it will be,” Des Vignes said. “This is what we are trying to do. We believe if we do our small part to impact on the lives of some young people, we will eventually impact all. Imagine if each citizen were to do their small parts,” he added.

ABC stands for Attitude, Belief and Consistency. Young people, the founders stated, should equip themselves with these attributes to achieve school and personal goals.“The initiative is not sponsored by corporate Trinidad and Tobago and it is a way for us to give back to our beautiful island,” the founders stated. The project targets Form Four students and hopes to provide inspiration and career guidance through interaction with the project founders and entertainers.

“Each of our stakeholders will speak on their careers and what is required to be involved in the entertainment industry. The session will also feature a question and answer segment and will end with a short performance from a top soca artiste,” the founders explained. The Project will continue  on Tuesday (January 23) at the San Juan North Secondary School.

Machel and Superblue spotted in musical conference it would seem, prior to the release of the track.

Machel Montano’s power is never to be questioned. For years, this King of the art form has proven his worth as a Caribbean musician and a revolutionary. In 2018, he has once again given Carnival lovers something to hold on to, something that would make masqueraders move with ease when the curtains are drawn on Carnival Monday. Machel Montano has collaborated with Austin ‘SuperBlue’ Lyons on a 2018 Road March contender called, “Soca Kingdom”.

The race is now for the  resilient. Prior to this song’s release overnight, the Road March race seemed to be a two man race between Patrice Roberts and Iwer George. Iwer had spoken effectively ahead of his song’s release, warning everyone who wondered, that he would be coming after the Road March crown. For a few weeks, ‘Savannah’ had been building powerfully and as the fetes erupted, Iwer was proving that he has a special secret to get the people on his side.
