Carnival is a festival which evokes a spirit of togetherness and love among our people. The lyrics and melody of Soca foster an inexplicable yet welcomed camaraderie among strangers and strengthen the bonds among friends. The essence of Carnival mirrors that of a NEIGHBOURHOOD – where people of different backgrounds, who are now in close proximity to each other, unite to create lasting memories, share experiences and have fun.
Neighbour, the first release for 2015 from Deeper Than Soca’s artisteSedale, does just that – it appeals to our sense of community and encourages us to party as one; to immerse in this unique bond which is fueled by the passion of the people, the rhythm of the music and the aura of the Season. Yes, “Bounce on your neighbour, hail up your neighbour, drink with your neighbour, because Carnival is the time to come together!”
Neighbour was written by Sedale ‘Rico’ Simei, Imran ‘Nerdy’ Magloire, Miguel ‘Migz’ Joseph and Miguel ‘Mysterio’ Monrose. The hit single was mixed and mastered by Francis ‘Leebo’ De Lima of Heights Music and produced by Miguel Joseph of VibezProductionz (responsible for Pandemonium) who is quickly becoming the island’s most sought after producer. The background vocals were done by Jesmara ‘Smally’ Nelson and additional background vocals recorded by Peter ‘WiLDFiRE’ Noel at Monsta Studios in Brooklyn, New York.
Neighbour has one more compononet to it that makes it even more enchanting and that is the addition of live Instruments which was done by Claude Jonas on bass and Dwight Florent& Zack Popo on guitar.
