Ultimate Rejects Drops Another Bomb. MX Prime Says It’s Never Been About Winning A Title.

Published

He said he knew, just after winning the Road March title in 2017 that the powers that be, whoever they are, would never again allow it to happen. MX Prime, the man respected most by who understand him best, for his unapologetic truths, has done what least would have expected. He has released yet another Carnival 2018 anthem, merely two weeks away from Carnival Monday.

MX Prime says this song and every other tune delivered, were not written for Road March glory. 

MX Prime and his Ultimate Rejects brothers on Monday morning said their new release, and even those delivered before, has absolutely nothing to do with the Carnival competitions. The group appeared on the Red HOT Morning show on RED96.7FM with Rachel Price, Richard Trumpet and TimTim, releasing a track called simply, “For The People.”

Last week, Price lashed out at radio DJs and a particular urban radio station, arguing that Machel Montano’s song, collaborated on with Super Blue, “Soca Kingdom”, had been getting an unfair advantage as a result of the number of times it was being played by DJs who she again pounced on this morning. The Road March champs however seem unfazed by the present state of Soca music affairs in Trinidad and Tobago. The Ultimate Rejects remained adamant that the music should be for the people and so, with that, they unleashed what could be their final contribution for the Carnival 2018 season.

Meanwhile, there was reiteration of the issue of “pay for play” on another urban frequency this evening. Artiste and radio personality, Smooth opened the trivial can of worms during his talk show- the Make Up Or Break Up Show. There was an admission that the situation is real, with two of the frequencies DJs admitting that they had been approached by artistes who wanted to pay them to play their music. They however said, the unethical option was not entertained.

Check out the brand new release, for the people, delivered earlier today by The Ultimate Rejects! Remember, UR will be at Army Fete this Friday at the Queen’s Park Savannah! Tickets are said to be going fast and organizers expect another blockbuster event with the likes of Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin and Asylum and Kees, set to perform.

Bunji, Fay Ann Stay Winning. Mas Maker, Promo Outfit…Who’s Counting The Coins?

Fay Ann’s business exploits now include mas making. She recently revealed a collaboration with Canadian mas bands SEMBA and Atlantic Mas.

While the rest of us are out here looking for the next party to attend, Fay Ann Lyons and her hubby of 12 years, Bunji Garlin stay winning, raking in the cash and hustling to the bank, no doubt. The duo is set to deliver another epic J’ouvert themed experience on June 3rd in St. Jospeh, Trinidad, and by all accounts relayed to Ebuzztt by Garlin himself, this one’s gonna be off the chain.

In 2017, Bunji and Fay Ann delivered ‘Santimanitay’ for the very first time at Ortinola Estate- a lush, ambient venue, deep in the St. Jospeh valley. It was the perfect venue for a J’ouvert style fete that featured the likes of fire breathing blue devils, painted bodies and not to mention, performances from Slaughter, Blaxx, Fay Ann, Super Blue and of course, Bunji himself. The event was indeed an epic and memorable one, leaving many excited for what was in the pipeline for the year ahead. During carnival 2018, the Alvarez’s once again delivered ‘Santimanitay’ on J’ouvert morning, taking patrons away from the traditional street venues in Port-of-Spain and into the cosy, meadow-like atmosphere they’d introduced us to, a few months prior.

“We’ll have a nice line up of artistes this time again, including myself, Fay Ann, Preedy Ms. Alysha, Revelation and a new artiste called, Jubee, along with a lot of other surprises,” Garlin told EBUZZTT. He said tickets have been going pretty well with just a limited amount still available from committee members. The event starts at 3am on June 3rd and will end at around 9am. “It’s a breakfast inclusive, cooler J’ouvert fete, but we want to let patrons know that coolers must not have any glass bottles inside and they must be in before 5am,” said Garlin.

To purchase tickets, interested patrons can call : 687-6996/ 733-2130/ 719-2284.

We suspect ‘Santimanitay 2018’ will be epically enjoyable. Question is, where will you be?

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

Published

on

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.

Supporters of the art form are encouraged to check out the efforts of this amazing Caribbean talent on Instagram @ juelio_artiste_producer.
