riddimOne local producer has released a rhythm which he said will serve as a great marketing tool for Dominica and its music.

Under the Machine Dominik Records Label, Krishna “Dada” Lawrence released the “MadrassRiddim”.

The release is a fusion of Soca and Bouyon to produce a sound which Lawrence dubbed ‘BouyonSoca.’

It features various artistes from Dominica including Halibut with his hit song “False Hair”, Hunter, Benz, and Janet Azzouz.

It features a soca artiste from St Lucia, Manitus whose song “No guns allowed” presently holds the number three spot on the soca charts on that island and is being used as theme song in an anti-violence campaign there.

Grenadian soca artistes, Valene and Skinny Banton, are also featured with their song “Ah want to whine.”

That song has also claimed the number one spot on soca charts in Grenada.

“The MadrassRiddim by its title is easily tagged to the culture and tradition of our Nature Isle, ensuring that wherever in the world the Riddim plays or gets any promotion the name Dominica must be mentioned,” Lawrence said in a release.

He said the release aims at showcasing a brand of music which is unique, yet appealing to an international audience.

“It is our belief that this new initiative will encourage increased interaction and collaboration among local and regional artistes,” according to Lawrence. “The ‘BouyonSoca’ formula as we speak is already in use by regional producers …a St Lucian producer has incorporated this formula in his production ‘Rolly Polly by Mr Killa’ from Grenada which is the hottest song in Trinidad & Tobago at present,” he said.

‘MadrassRiddim’ has received positive reviews from DJs and listeners and is available for download on Numusiczone.com

Machine Dominik will soon release another rhythm called the “Radiation Riddim” which will feature top local and regional artistes which promises to be bigger and better and is sure to be loved by all carnival lovers.
