Artiste: Dunstan Carwash Lawrence
Produced by Pelham Goddard
Executive Producer: Dunstan Lawrence.
In 1998 he burst on the calypso scene with Me and Meh Lady, the
selection which took Neal and Massy Trinidad All Stars to a runner-up
berth in that years Panorama final. Since that Dunstan Carwash
Lawrence has not looked back.
I understand Me and Meh Lady reached Europe and North America...
and is still travelling.
Wind forward to today, and Carwash has a six-track CD that I consider
cute. Its musically unique. I often wonder where
he gets his melodies from.
The songs on this mini CD are: Early One Morning, Ah Taking Dat,
Fire, Mas In the Savannah, his 2008 offering (Pan In the Place),
and of course, Me and Meh lady.
This CD is worth-buying, and its available at Cleves
Port-of-Spain, and from Carwash himself.
Talking to Carwash recently, he promised a cracker of a song for
However, Mr Muzik has a few tips for Carwash; the packaging could
have been more impressive for such a musical mini CD; take note.
n Platinum Soca (Vol 13)
Brooklyn, New York
Executive Producer: Jamal Talib
Producer Jamal Talib is a brave man.
Hes got more belly than a calabash to take a chance on some
relatively new artistes.
While they may be known in the Brooklyn, New York area, they still
need to win their spurs in socas firmament. The big names
on this 16-track CD are Designer and Ziggy Rankin.
This CD ebbs and flows. You wonder why some songs are there.
If I know Talib well, hes an all inclusive guy, and there
lies the problem with this CD.
However, Platinum Soca seems more exploratory than commercial
to me, but there are some gems on this CD.
I like Back It Up (Garth David); Push It Back (Super P); Give
Me Some Water (Pelf); Do It (Chocklet); Wire Up On It (Philly
Dilly); Somebody New (Terra B, featuring Tocos); and, Bon Voyage
While the packaging is superb, one cannot say so about the CD.
