No stranger to this Blog, DJ Ariez recently became a member of “The Ultimate” DJ collective, Chromatic. Here he teams up with fellow member Shantonio (Tonio) to deliver the live audio named “Island Invasion: Quick Fyah“. Spinning the hits, these two made sure you have a very enjoyable experience. It is recommended that you play this at a high volume, and keep the Auxiliary Cord handy. If you’ve been to an event where Chromatic played, then you’ll not be disappointed. Congrats to the homie Ariez on the move, but right now it’s time to party! Check out the mix below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Recording Artiste Ibo Fire started off the new year on a high with the release of the “Can’t Wait Remix” alongside Nicha B from St. Kitts. Through a mutual associate, Foxxlink of 12 to 12 Productions a connection was made between Ibo Fire and Nicha B and the rest is history. “The link came through my road manager Foxx; Nicha B sent the song to him and Foxx called me up. Wi meds the song with studio engineer Prince Villa at Krush Proof studio alongside Paul Mullings, CEO of 12 To 12 Muzik and we worked until we were happy with the results” Revealed Ibo Fire. When quizzed about the collaboration with Ibo Fire, Nicha B said, “Ibo Fire did a great job on this track, by fusing the reggae vibes with the Soca vibes. He is a really good Artiste and very easy to work with; I took the time out to listen to all his tracks from the Gateway EP, and it was exceptional and equally uplifting, so of course I selected him to work with.”
“Can’t Wait Remix” was first premiered by Kurt Riley on Fame FM radio and became an instant favourite there and other radio stations in and out of the Caribbean. With the Carnival season in the air both Ibo Fire and Nicha B are confident that this song will be a big hit. Both artistes are looking forward to working again very soon on some new joint projects, as a matter of fact, a new collaboration is already in the making. Ibo Fire is gearing up for some local and overseas shows early this year, he also released “I Can’t Pretend” and urges fans to look out for that song as a lot more is coming from the Reggae sensation.
