"Dat Shot" is the latest music release by Problem Child produced by Lashley "Motto" Winter of Saint Lucia. The song, from the Domino Album aka Riddim, was released in time for both Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent Carnivals 2023. The music composed by Motto on this very catchy rhythm (riddim) and engaging lyrical content makes this one ear candy for Carnival revelers.

It is possible that "Dat Shot" refers to "Back Shot" in this song, and that may be the case for this song. These lyrics are typical of Soca songs today. It has its place and audience. This is the type of song that carnival party attendees latch on to because of the catchy lyrics and the substance of the song. Problem Child is a skillful songwriter who plays with words and evokes carnival spirit in his songs. This song will be very popular for summer carnivals.

"Dat Shot" and the Domino Riddim songs are just one week old. Problem Child's song has already been at the forefront of YouTube music searches. Finally, because of the infectious rhythms, engaging lyrics and cultural significance, we expect this one to become a party favorite.

As "Dat Shot" continues to capture audiences, it will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the contemporary music landscape. It will stand as a testament to the enduring power of Soca and Caribbean music as a whole. Enjoy!

West Indian carnivals are renowned for their vibrant celebrations, pulsating rhythms, and exuberant dance displays. Among the many dance forms showcased at these festivals, some performances have been labeled as "promiscuous" due to their energetic and sensual nature. 

 
These dances have a cultural aspect. Dance expressions are amalgamations of African, European and indigenous influences all due to colonization, slavery and migration across continents and islands. Most of the attention is on women and their ability to "wuk up" (Barbados) or "wine" the term used in Trinidad & Tobago. Promiscuous dancing at West Indian carnivals serves as a means of liberation and self-expression, particularly for women. Historically speaking, women's bodies have been policed and controlled, often subjected to societal restrictions on movement and expression. However, West Indian carnivals challenge these norms by providing a space for women to reclaim their bodies, autonomy, and sexual agency. Promiscuous dancing empowers women to assert their desires and challenge society's expectations, celebrating their bodies and embracing their sexuality on their own terms. By breaking free from societal constraints, women find liberation and an avenue to express their true selves through uninhibited dance forms.
 
Definitely fire... what we see at Carnivals throughout the Caribbean basin, which most likely occurs during fetes rather than carnivals. If you want to know what Carnival euphoria is about, then you need to take a look at what this couple used to showcase carnival ecstasy. I know what you are thinking, "Damn Girl... What Would Your Mama Say?" Is that it? No, not for the guys watching. They wish they could have that guys experience and the ladies would be like, "I could do better than that!" 
 
Here is our advice for the guys, all wines are not the same, make sure you understand that this is just a wine after which you walk away, if it isn't and you get that look then you hit the jackpot 'son'! Seriously now, there will be those watching and wishing they could do that or better. It is important to note, however, that some condescending views send them straight to hell! My advice is that we should all do what makes us happy because tomorrow cannot be guaranteed. Live your life to the fullest and if it means making some prude unhappy, so be it!
 
Finally, don't condemn something you don't understand. Keep in mind the historical context and understand that promiscuous dancing at West Indian carnivals represents a vibrant celebration of culture, liberation, and identity. We hope this helps but we are confident that you will forget all that you read here after watching the video posted with this video.

Send Somebody" is the latest music release from Biggie Irie arranged by De Red Boyz for Barbados Crop Over Carnival 2023. Biggie Irie has been around for some time, and it feels right to hear his voice at Crop Over 2023. If you love groove Soca music, this song was released to feel the joy dancing with 'somebody'!

 
The writing team got this one right by making sure that the listener focused on the relevance of holding on tight to and dancing with 'somebody special'. Carnival is about having a good time, attending fetes (parties), having fun with friends and spending the evening with someone special. 
 
Biggie Irie has a silky sweet tone to his voice and the musical arrangement is a highlight of this song. The production is polished and professional with every instrument and vocal perfectly balanced to create a cohesive and dynamic sound. The entire production is tight, creating a sense of unity and togetherness that reinforces the lyrics' message. 
 
Overall, "Send Somebody" should be one of the songs DJ's and party revelers want to play and hear at Crop Over fetes (parties). With its infectious rhythm, slick vocals, and inspiring message, it will lift your spirits. Carnival relationships are powered by human connection, even if they only last a short time; so "Send Someone" just to make this evening complete!

After arriving from the Caribbean and settling in New York City, three brothers moved to Philadelphia where they continued their love of music. They continued to improve their DJ skills and worked tirelessly to impact the Philadelphia party scene. After brainstorming, they came up with the name "BlackWidowSounds" as a promotional tool. Indeed, the BlackWidowSounds DJ team was born when three became one, and is now considered one of the most fearless DJ outfits in Philadelphia today.

Sokah2Soca through its partnership with Island Vybe Radio is now family! Family means we look out for each other and promote each other. Today, we present a mix that blog fans will love and appreciate. The mix is just over three and a half hours long so get your snacks and drinks out for this one and party with your friends. This is Bacchanal Sunday, a mix by Black Widow Sounds... one of the best DJs in Philly!

From the DJs:
When your every waking moment has been saturated with your dad playing music from a wide spectrum i.e., Calypso, R&B, Reggae, Soca - you have no choice but to adopt that insatiable love for music as well. Stanley, Darrel and Glen Fatal grew up on St. Lucia in the West Indies. Those who know them personally can tell you that music has and will always be a huge part of their lives.
 
After they migrated to the United States one thing that was always apparent among these young men was their love of each other (very rarely are they seen without the other) and their growing love of music which became more than a hobby. While living in New York and sampling the New York party scene which nurtured a very fertile atmosphere for emerging DJ’s and promoters, “the boys”, as they were affectionately called, sometimes discovered a deeper interest in their craft. As we all know life happens, changes occur but once you are determined to pursue your passion nothing can stop you. It is fair to say that even after moving to PA they still remain steadfast in refining their skills and paving their way through the Philly scene.
 
Many say that Philly is a difficult market to crack as a DJ because of the presumed exclusive fraternity of DJ’s that have secured their own spot as regulars on the scene and are protective, but that didn’t deter the brothers. While getting acquainted with the Philly DJ scene Stanley, Darrel and Glen who had changed their name to BlackWidowSounds had begun to carve a name for themselves. People began to take notice. The road to building their brand wasn’t always paved with supporters or readily available opportunities. However, BlackWidowSounds worked to create their own signature events like their infamous Halloween Haunted Boat ride which sells out every October. They have graced many platforms such as the Atlantic City Carnival, Philly Carnival and were featured DJs in the famed Labor Day Parade. No matter what the project is, BlackWidowSounds refines their skills and broadens their audience. They also leave their distinctive sound and imprint wherever they travel to vibe with the people.
