Dice launches new music video

King Dice

Four-time calypso champion Dennison “Dice” Joseph has another of his goals in the entertainment business accomplished.

Dice has completed a video for his 2011 calypso “Send Me”.  He has said his interest in creating a video was inspired by a lack of calypso music videos in Dominica.

“Our calypso is something that is positive; it can reach the hearts of human beings all over the world. All other music have videos like reggae and dancehall and I believe our calypso is at that level and one of the ways that we could send it out is through videos,” Dice told DBS.

He  took a two-year break from the calypso competition and pleased his fans when he returned to the stage at the elimination round of the 2011 calypso season this month.

He is hoping his new video will inspire much more in the field to follow suit.

    There are so many political songs, I only hope that the senior judges like Patrick Pemberton and Father Thomas dont show their bias pro labor attitude,judge according to the merits of the calypso competition.If not they should step down now.Orherwise they will creating a lot of problems for the Association DOMINICANS be on the lookout.

    Congratulations to King Dice on his accomplishment! We should be proud of him and encourage him not criticize him ok…If no one else is proud of him, I am :wink: All the best to him on his future endeavors! :wink:

    Is someone talking about delivery? Dice is a good performer no doubt about it..But Caressa not easy. I saw that man took a song that could not even placed in the final “LIAT” and won testing the best remember? Up to this day “Dog Race” is the most viewed calypso on U-Tube for 2010…and that is for the entire Region including the calypsos from Trinidad…check that out! Finally I saw caressa beat Dice real bad in St. Marten with the Pastor’s Rod … caressa was #1 Dice was # 4. In essence, I believe both Dice and caressa are great artistes. In my book I will give caressa the edge especially with the material this year. I took a real genius to compose that song One set a cutlery..Every time I hear that song it reminds me of the calypso greats like Lord Kitchener, Sparrow, Chalk Dust and Obstinate. I wish them all well.

    to all the people who say dice should write his own song do they know that most of the songs they enjoy on B.E.T AND the air waves are not always writen by the singer dice may not be a writer but he is a very talented singer and entertainer

  13. charmed
    January 24, 2011

    is Dice the only calypsonian that does not write his own calypso. let me tell u all something leave the young man alone.ok let him sing what they write for him it still not reventing him from winning the crown.. dicy your fans are there all the way. send me is a great song i love the chorus, even though i am not worthy send me look me send. love it to the max boy. welcome back to the arena.. fraid they fraid the crown not going no marigot pottersville it coming and it will stay there for a while to..

    I heard the song ang all I can comprehend from it is the writer just included all his hate for the Leader of the country.I have not heard anything of a topic like “The Old Cabinet” even ‘The Old Speaker” or any of the others even the voices of the others are left to be desired.Can someone come on stage,say a whole lot of jumbled words and because he has a moderate voice he can win? No way, that is why we will always hear ‘Bias”

    Dice ‘Come Back’ is weak…The video is necessary to push it…I remember songs like puppet master, Animal Farm, On My Own, and other songs in the past that brought out the real Dicey. This year I am not feeling “Send Me” This is in my mind a Counterfeit Dice! I wish he has another song otherwise caressa will run away with the Crown. I love de Fouchette!

    Great performer and singer but my problem is the writer feed him with songs which do not come from his heart.This writer only write against the government and you got to sing it like it or not.So sad to see one man got all that power and if this is not corruption also..well..Calypsonians need to have more faith in themselves and start writing them own songs.

      Everyone has their talent….For some it’s writing for others it’s singing!! Some on the other hand have been blessed with both!!

    • Lik Olive Branches
      January 23, 2011

      Dice does not have to sing Pat Aaron’s songs Salop. Hunter choose not to sing about the present government but that is his choice. A calypsonian in my opinion need to be objective . In fact when a calypsonian remain impartial that allows him/her to better combat writers block.

    • mouth of the south
      January 23, 2011

      in music there are songwriters n singers,,,some artists are blessed with the talent to do both,,,, so more respect to them,,,, but i believe when a songwriter blends with a singer the chemistry is better,,,,, each can lend to each role 110%,,,, um usher,,chris brown,,,michael jackson (for most songs) did or don’t write their own lyrics,,,, only r.kelly does n also arranges n produces among other things,,,, u see lyrically caressa is a beast but he can’t bring out the true feeling of a song like dice can,,,, dats why i say brakes is the only calypsonian i can put up with dice,,,, songs like ‘keep the candle burning’,,,’remember me the malaway’,,,, these songs will strike deep into ur soul because of the way the Brakes use to deliver the melody
