Written by Julian
After an impressive 2010 season in which Blood was behind the works of more than 60 tracks and won the Party Monarch title out of Barbados with the single "Foot On Fire" plans on continuing his success with 2 new albums for 2011.
The first will be a 22 track album entitled "Dis Soca Baddy" followed by a second album entitled "Sweet Soca Riddms". the Baddy album will feature some of the wickedest tempo and ragga tracks which is why they decided to title it "Baddy". The Sweet Soca Riddims Album will concentrate on mainly Ragga, 7 songs on this album will be off a new riddim called "The TopUp Riddim". Work on The Soca Baddy Album began in early January and ended in late Febuary. The Sweet Soca Riddims album currently has only 12 tracks and is still being worked on for clients and commentaries as well for the kaiso competition.
Blood will be working again with artists such as Mikey, Alison Hinds, Contone, D2, Peter Ram, Katalyst, Wind Chaser, Queen T, Tejay from the big band Strategy, Brett Linton, Smokey Burke, Basil, Troy Special, Teddy B, Young Suma, Ms Desire out of the UK and Keann. There will also be some returns from artists Leah Griffith, Peach, Tabitha Johnson. Blood will also be presenting a few new artists to the scene like Nikki-Zan and Juel. Paula Dion will be back for her second year on a really nice single called "Last Man Standing". Blood will also be collaborating with Wanskie out of Antigua, Jamesy P out of St. Vincent and some more works in the future.
Key tracks off this album will be "The Experience" of a crazy riddim called BrekBak. As well as a new release from Mikey. Look out for the ladies to step it up on the Beatdown Riddim and keep a look out for the TopUp Riddim a Blood hopes to get as many music videos done for these tracks as well.
