ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Confident that its fans will be intrigued, 3-time Road March champs Virgin Islands Based Entertainment (VIBE) is set to launch a new album on Saturday July 15, 2017 at UP’s Cineplex Ballroom.

In an exclusive interview with our news reporter, Raul R. Sprauve aka 'Jougo', founding member of VIBE said, “This is our fourth party as VIBE, so it will be our fourth annual VIBE CD release party.” The launch will be done at an all-black exclusive album release party.

Mr Sprauve stated that the album consists of 11 tracks, ranging from different genres such as soca, zouk and dancehall.

“The album is very interesting and versatile in its own way. We are confident that it will please the fans and they will be intrigued when they listen to the songs.”

According to Mr Sprauve, the inspiration for the album stemmed from the fans and the people in the community.

‘Influence’

The title of the album to be released is ‘Influence.’

Mr Sprauve explained that while making music for many years he noticed that the music has a particular influence on the community and fans and that gave birth to the name of the album.

“From time to time people would always tell us about the influence that our music have on them.”

Speaking with our news reporter, Mr Sprauve stated that a song on the album called ‘Flashlight’ featuring Kylo, has already received great feedback.

“Flashlight basically speaks about taking back the community and taking it back to the days when it was love, peace, unity and all about having fun.”

Mr Melee recognised

The song also pays tribute to some people in the community who have passed. Special mention was made of the late Neil A. Blyden aka Mr Melee.

“He played a big part in Virgin Islands music, actually, in Caribbean music on a whole because he was affiliated with Tempo back in the early days," explained Mr Sprauve.

The album release party will feature the VI's very own Killa Tooma; a young rapper, who recently released a new album called 'The Third Pillar'.

The event will also see a performance from the Grammy award winning dynamic duo, Rock City. In addition, DJ Taz and Ah Milli Soundz will be entertaining the patrons.

"We are inviting the general public to come out and have a very spectacular time," Mr Sprauve said.
