Attention all Carnival devotees and debutants. THIS IS A FESTIVAL ALERT!
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?
Frequently sneaking looks at your calendar, or gazing longingly at costumes online? Are your hips continuously making involuntary twitching motions to a beat only they can hear?
Have no fear, in this his first release for Carnival 2015, Machel Montano – the reigning International Power Soca Monarch – works with Precision Productions to divulge a remarkable “Remedy” to the world.
For it to work though, just the right elements had to be lined up to provide all of the necessary aspects of this harmonious elixir.
Constant motion is key and team Precision takes care of the musical aspect of this tonic, providing the precise amount of bass, melodies, and rhythm required to keep the momentum rolling.
The intoxicating recipe may seem familiar, however, Patrick “Mista Vybe” Gordon, working for the first time as a songwriter with the Road March King, used his notable skills to whip up a gripping tale that gives a contemporary slant to this festive therapy.
To put this all together, Machel rises to the occasion adding his unrelenting energy and becomes a vocal vessel, who impeccably conveys the seductive and consuming give and take between masqueraders as they move in-sync, charging the atmosphere with their combined euphoria.
The countdown continues and the air ripens with the promise of great things to come for the Carnival season as we bring you the “Remedy”!
See it on THE FADER!
