Dancehall Star D’Angel’s Got ‘Carib Life ATL’ Fever

Atlanta, Georgia — February 2021 — Dancehall’s First Lady D’Angel has caught the Carib Life ATL fever!! The “Talk  About” singer will be hosting three installments of the explosive TV show’s Weekly Recap, starting February 7 on the @dangelmusic and @cariblifeatl instagram pages. Well known in entertainment and social media circles, there’s no doubt that D’Angel will be a hostess with the mostess, as she kicks off her stint interviewing Carib Life ATL cast member Patricia Tonge Edigin (nee Henry).   

Carib Life ATL is a reality TV series from Executive Producer Damon “Bware” Vanzant, son of TV personality (“Fix My Life”) and literary giant Iyanla Vanzant. The series trails an amazing cast of leading Caribbean influencers in Atlanta, as they gear up for the Atlanta and Dekalb Carnivals, which are now split. 

The buzz of Carib Life ATL was so nice, they had to air it twice. Audiences can now catch the Encore of Carib Life ATL Season 1 on One Caribbean Television every Monday at 9:30 PM ET and throughout the week. In Jamaica and other Caribbean islands, One Caribbean Television airs on Digicel and Flow. In the U.S., One Caribbean Television is available on Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV streaming platforms and cable provider RCN. 

Patricia, who impressively doubles as President of Atlanta Caribbean Carnival and D’Angel’s manager, is one of Carib Life ATL’s most no nonsense cast members. Throughout Season 1 of Carib Life ATL, Patricia dishes her sentiments straight with no chaser as she deals with the communal and logistical pressures that come in tow with producing the massive economic driving Atlanta Caribbean Carnival. 

There’s no question that there is a natural chemistry between the Antigua & Barbuda born business woman and D’Angel, so one can only imagine quite the candid, classy and possibly raw discussion.  Following Patricia’s inaugural guest spot, a new member of Carib Life ATL’s vibrant cast will be featured on each Weekly ReCap installment, including Marlon Revo, Martine, Red Carpet Shelley, Annie Love and Alex and Brandon of Unique Soundz. Capitalizing on the show’s growing buzz, Carib Life ATL has also enlisted the likes of an additional Caribbean entertainment personality to host some of the post shows. 

D’Angel’s bubbly personality, on air personna and position in the world of Dancehall entertainment make her an ideal interim host of the Carib Life ATL Recap. 

There’s a lot more in store for the Carib Life Media franchise suggests Vanzant, who has eyes set on launching an app and expanding to several other markets, including Jamaica. But for right now, audiences can enjoy an Encore of Carib Life ATL Season 1 and get ready for Season 2 this spring.

Edley Shine’s New Visual and Single ‘BIG MON TING’ Boasts Grown Up Music and Vibes

International artist Edley Shine has perfected an Adult Contemporary Dancehall space with his music, style and vibes. The amazing artist, notably dubbed “Da Big Voice,” once again proves that he can deliver grown up and entertaining music with the self reflecting “BIG MON TING.”

While “BIG MON TING” is personal to Edley Shine, penned upon finding out he was having a daughter, the song is bound to genuinely resonate with audiences far and wide. Without question, anyone who is orchestrating their evolution and next life moves will connect to the Riddim Boss produced “BIG MON TING” Video & Maxi Single, which includes an 8 Bar Intro and Acoustic Piano Live version on all video and streaming platforms.

When discussing current music and life movements, the legendary artist says, “My main concern is being the best family man I can be and making art to the best of my ability.”

Throw all that wisdom over a badddd riddim and you’ve got yourself a tune worthy of you rocking out to all year long and beyond. Consider “BIG MON TING” the newest addition to Edley Shine’s growing arsenal of timeless classics.

“BIG MON TING” is a highly cinematic video shot by Lapo of Lapography with motion graphics and editing by Studio G.O.A.T from Brazil. It serves as the ideal visual companion to Edley Shine’s “BIG MON TING” single.

” ‘BIG MON TING’ is a visual representation of my mindset in music and life,” says Edley Shine sincerely.  “I live in my own world of creativity unshackled by the pressures of fame and social media hype.”

“BIG MON TING” hails from Edley Shine’s “Based on Talent” EP, which was released in May of 2020 during the height of the pandemic. Notably, the EP (on his Shinealous Records imprint) has amassed a wealth of media attention and thousands of streams across DSPs. This is an incredible feat, as the release was totally independent without any features or financial backing from a major recording company.

“Based on Talent” is not the only exciting project hailing from “Da Big Voice,” as he worked with Studio G.O.A.T on the international and powerful “We Can’t Breathe” for Brazilian Artist Monkey Jhayam. Much to his credit, Edley Shine appeared in a Walmart commercial that aired during the 2020 B.E.T. Soul Train Awards. The legendary artist has been writing and recording for several Cali Roots projects including Pepper, Producer’s Jungle Josh & David Forel (Left Coast Riddim) and Philippian’s based Peace Band to be released in 2021.

Shawn Ice and I-Octane Inspire on Platinum Kids and Studio 91 Records Produced ‘Times Like These’

Shawn Ice and I-Octane Inspire on Platinum Kids and Studio 91 Records Produced ‘Times Like These’

Red-hot Dancehall talent Shawn Ice and Reggae and Dancehall’s “Globe Boss” I-Octane have teamed up for “Times Like These,” a song which can easily be hailed as Dancehall’s most inspirational contribution this year. Behind the sonically appealing single is popular production duo Platinum Kids and
Studio 91 Records.

“Times Like These” sees the awesome new collabo of Shawn Ice and I-Octane come to musical life. From the moment Shawn Ice kicks off “Times Like These” with his humbling and impactful first verse, the song’s message of overcoming obstacles becomes ever-so-clear.

“‘Times Like These’ is by all accounts groundbreaking, moving and uplifting,” declares Paul Platinum of Platinum Kids.

In times like these
Man haffi stay grateful G (yeah)
Memba mi couldn’t buy the rice and peas
Mummie Neva grow man weak
Stand up on mi G** D*** feet (Soulja)
Mi know the tears mi know di pain
Di sacrifice it take fi gain
Mi know di ones weh change
Ah part yuh life yo Octane

“I poured my personal journey and love of story telling through music in ‘Times Like These’,” says Shawn Ice. “I want each fan to know that they are not alone in their struggles and that with prayer, hope and hard work, there is a way out.”

I-Octane’s hard hitting and heartfelt chorus further solidifies “Times Like These” magnitude. Reminiscent of the classic-style I-Octane sound, the chorus pops.

“From when I heard ‘Times Like These,’ I instantly felt good about it. Right away, I penned my chorus to match the song’s inspirational vibe,” says I-Octane. “I know this song will reach higher heights…”

At the height of the covid 19 pandemic as the world shut down and looked toward
DJs and artists for a source of entertainment, Markus Wanted of Platinum Kids launched an online Instagram live clash featuring artists from across the globe, with celebrity judges such as Tifa, Darrio, Dovey Magnum, Nikki Z and I-Octane. As fate and talent has it, Dancehall deejay Shawn Ice edged out all contenders in the inaugural competition, winning a collabo with powerhouse act I-Octane. “Times Like These” is the riveting outcome.

“As the world is truly in trying times, there is no doubt that ‘Times Like These’ will resonate with worldwide, multi-generational audiences,” says Paul Platinum. “The song’s comforting sound combined with it’s powerful message, will prompt music lovers to play it over and over again.”

Consisting of brothers Paul and Markus, Platinum Kids, are behind a respected sound system and many renowned signature events (Bikini Palooza, Breeze and formerly School Uniform), attracting upwards of 10,000 patrons annually. The duo jumpstarted their entry into production in 2016, working with the likes of Aidonia, Shatta Wale, Konshens, Tifa and Spragga Benz just to name a few. Platinum Kids has partnered with Studio 91 Records for numerous productions including the popular “She Like That” by Black Ryno.

Shawn Ice is at the forefront of a fresh crop of Dancehall acts. The St. Mary, Jamaica bred artist offers music lovers a raw, yet polished take on Dancehall music. Hailed as both an artist and songwriter, Shawn Ice is celebrating a lucrative management deal with Acclaim PR and Brown Gang Management. The deejay has amassed quite the buzz for songs like “Mixture,” “Elevated” and his latest banger “Yowww,” among others. “Times Like These” genuinely showcases Shawn Ice’s versatility and artistic growth.

With a career that spans more than a decade, I-Octane is one of Reggae and Dancehalls most prolific contributors. There is no doubt that “Times Like These” will rival hits from the artist’s massive catalogue like “Love Di Vibes,” “L.O.V.E. You,” “Buss a Blank,” “Lose a Friend” and other gems.

“Times Like These” is out now on all digital platforms. A sensational visual for “Times Like These” is set for release in the coming weeks.
