Trancehall aka NY Tropical aka New Ragga Rave = CARIBBEAN RAVE MUSIC

It's a rough description at this point, but trancehall (aka NY Tropical) is a growing sound in NY, JA, Trinidad, and the UK. It's ragga vocals, shouts chats, lyrics. The beat is roughly dancehall but uses the sounds of trance and rave techno to get that super-hype fast wine or fancy dance feel.

Shadetek calls it NY Tropical (get his point) but i wanna call it New Ragga Rave . I say New cause ragga and rave music had lots of babies called jungle back in the late 80s early 90's. Jungle this is not.

Matt Shadetek, Ricky Blaze, Stephen Mcgregor, Razorshop (on the soca side) and Ghislain Porier are the main folks in the game right now. I've been dreaming of this since I was at raves trying to dance to that shitty BOOM chick BOOM chick BOOM when i was 17. It's all different, but basically boils down to taking the sounds and feel of old and new skool raves and putting that wine touch for the passa passa set. Controversial, disputed, amazing , rave music from the Caribbean is here for good.
