Good vibrations are coming to Trinidad Carnival 2024 and will extend across the Caribbean region now, after being sent out into the ether by DJ/Producer Romie Rome and Studio 47 Productions. Antoine is no stranger to the industry after playing alongside popular announcer "Chinee" on RED 96.7 fm for many years and having crafted the Jam Band Riddim alongside Presicion Productions' pioneer, Kasey Phillips and received the Copyright Organisation of T&T's Best New Male Songwriter of the Year Award in 2015.
"With all the bad vibes happening across the world and even here in sweet T&T," Romie explained, "we wanted to send out a frequency that would only attract, share and multiple good vibes and good energy to the festival and beyond. Harnessing the young language of the region, which exists in Soca and Dancehall, we created the Send Out Riddim to combine the positive energy found in both genres, effectively unite both worlds and celebrate the region in the process!"
The Send Out Riddim features just four songs thus far with exhilarating contributions from:
- the Reigning Road March King, Bunji Garlin;
- the Queen of Bacchanal, Destra Garcia;
- the hit-maker extraordinaire from St Vincent, Problem Child and
- the dynamic trendy duo of DJ Bravo and Nessa Preppy together in combination.
"We really wanted to keep the project on a veteran, established and experienced level," stated Antoine, "but I felt that the riddim is dynamic enough to allow a space for an emerging talent also and Kesi brought the song that completed the energy of the first wave. We know and understand also that the artform and the industry needs new talent with new ideas in order to keep growing, so we definitely wanted to feature this talented songwriter and unique female voice and with her addition came the balance of featuring three male and three female voices on this wave of the project as well."
In addition to offering all of the traditional services expected from a professional recording studio, 47 Productions exists as a world-class production and recording outfit perfect for international artists and for collaborations between T&T local producers, musicians, and singers with their foreign counterparts. Antoine partnered with 47 Productions to create and distribute the "Send Out" riddim.
“We created this studio out of the desire to advance T&T artists to the next level in their careers and get them the exposure they deserve,” explains Dwayne Bravo, Owner of 47 Productions. “The studio will also provide an avenue where engineers, producers, and artists can work with others and grow in artistic collaboration.”
Balance is extremely important to the ambitious producer and top-rated DJ behind the Send Out Riddim project, who continues to strive for global recognition and acclaim, regional unity and mainstream success for the artistes and entertainers of the Caribbean region.
"We have so much more in common than differences we can list," Antoine enthused, "and the music has been bringing us together for decades, but it's time for a new paradigm as we share a sonic vibration - designed with positive energy and, dare I say, destined for greatness and success."
