Crop over 2016 is around the corner, Paul Parris sent this track over to give a listen and by the look of things, Bajan Soca will be nice this year. The track was produced by Dev Kutta & DRWTHVN and executive produced by Paul Parris.
“The sound is Future Soca and the future is now” confidently states Jus D. After penning and producing several hits as Young D for the past few years, the writer/producer is launching his artist career under the moniker Jus D. “Whether I’m performing or creating for myself and others I’m Jus D. now” says the artist who has been a significant force in the music business since 2012.
Jus D. recently released his first contribution to Barbados’ Crop Over season as an artist with “Give It To Me”, a hybrid soca tune, produced by Livity Movements and fast rising Guyanase producer DRWTHVN. “The sound is a fusion of Soca, Dancehall, AfroBeats and EDM, which represents the current vibe of Barbados,” says the artist’s manager and Executive Producer of his upcoming project, Paul Parris. “We believe this energy can make an impact on the other Caribbean carnivals and just as importantly, on carnivals in the diaspora”.
Currently working on projects with Billboard charted artist Rupee and Dancehall superstar I-Octane, as well as Crop Over music for former Barbados Party Monarch and Road March champion Mikey, Kirk Brown and Imani, among others, Jus D. has amassed a strong resume. It includes “Nothing Sweeter” and “All Night Long” for Rupee, Sanctuary’s “Mega Monday” and “Feting Mode”.
Most of the highly anticipated project was produced by D. including the forthcoming groovy Soca single “Perform” and he is anxious for the world to hear all of the tracks. “We are taking chances with the sound we’re developing,” he said,
“but I believe people will gravitate towards it.”
