The ‘Firestarter’ Soca and Reg­gae artist Benje is mak­ing se­ri­ous waves in the Ba­hamas and the Caribbean. With three Soca sin­gles un­der his belt he cer­tainly means busi­ness for the 2016 Car­ni­val Sea­son and the noise he is cre­at­ing can­not be con­tained!

His first re­lease, La (pro­nounced ‘lay’) Bam Bam, on Jan­uary 8th, 2016 whet the ap­petites of Soca lovers across the Caribbean and set the Ba­hamas on fire. His sec­ond re­lease of Mas­quer­aders, the theme song for the car­ni­val band Ba­hamas Mas­quer­aders, made fans ea­ger to hear more of his mu­sic. The track was re­leased on Fe­bru­ary 3rd.

March 23rd saw the re­lease of his third track Won’t Stop, Don’t Stop, an ode to the Ba­hamian Junkanoo Fes­ti­val which has a gen­uine Soca flavour that only Benje can pro­duce so well over rhyth­mic beats with his pow­er­ful vo­cals.

The track was pro­duced by Carl­ton ‘DJ Muzikal’ Smith for the Amaz­ing Soca Rid­dim 2016 out of the Ba­hamas. Writ­ten by Ben­jamin Alexander, who also mixed vo­cals, and recorded at Got Stykz Mu­sic Stu­dio in the Ba­hamas, with the mu­sic mixed and mas­tered by Dil­lon Jr., this track is an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to the Ba­hamian Rid­dim, bring­ing a Soca feel to the beloved Junkanoo Fes­ti­val which is in­dige­nous to the Ba­hamas.

The track is re­leased just in time for the up­com­ing Ba­hamas Car­ni­val Cel­e­bra­tions in May 2016.

All three tracks were well re­ceived at Benje’s re­cent per­for­mance at Soca Fest 2016 in the Ba­hamas, and also at a se­ries of events there­after.

Benje de­sires to bring his fans noth­ing but his best work. With more tracks to be re­leased for this year, he in­tends on putting in an in­stall­ment for Saint Lucia Car­ni­val 2016.

Check out Benje on all so­cial me­dia sites for more up­dates and sub­scribe to his YouTube Chan­nel: Benje The Artist for the photo mu­sic video for this hot new track!
