    When the History books are updated for Calypso/Mento/Soca...we will be front and center.......there is a saying in Yard, “ “ Wi Lickle But Wi Tallawah “

    Translation..............
    “ Small Nation, but Strong Willed"





    From 2008 he singled handily kept us on the World Stage....” To De Worl” Bolt.......they paid him Nuff Respect with Big Dancehall Tunes......, not to be out-done, our first real solo artist that called himself a soca artist Noel “ DanceMaster “ Stevens, participated in the first r one of the first Soca Monarch that was held in Brooklyn and in 1999 in Trinidad Soca Monarch......

    He did a Massive Soca song for Bolt

    To fans who attend West Indian events in the United States tri-state area, soca artiste Dancemaster has been a stalwart performer for 30 years.




    Not much, however, is known about him in Jamaica, his homeland. Recently, the Port Antonio-born singer released the aptly titled EP,
    Dem Nuh Know Bout Me.




    It contains five songs including the title track. All are remixed versions of previously released songs which Dancemaster hopes will introduce him to Jamaican fans.



    "You have people coming here from Trinidad and Barbados every year doing soca, but no one knows that there is a Jamaican out there who does soca. I would like to establish myself here, that’s the objective," he said.





    Dem Nuh Know Bout Me also contains In The Centre, Dancemaster’s biggest hit. The original was released in 1995 and became popular among West Indians in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.




    Jamaica Bolt (re-recorded on Dem Nuh Know Bout Me as Jamaica), a tribute to sprint superstar Usain Bolt, was recorded and released in 2009.


    Dancemaster was born Noel Stevens. In the 1970s when roots-reggae was the sound of choice for most Jamaican youth, he was drawn to calypso from the Eastern Caribbean.



    "I loved songs like Dragon Dance, loved Sparrow and Lord Laro. There was something about calypso and soca, the tempo grabbed me," he said.



    Migrating to the United States in 1979, he moved in soca circles, performing on West Indian shows. It was not until 21 years ago that he got the breakthrough with In The Centre.




    The song entered in Trinidad’s 1999 Soca Monarch competition.



    Dancemaster, who hosts the bi-weekly The Money Train show on WVIP 93.5 FM in New York, has two albums to his name. The previous,Creation, was released in 2010.
