The Dutch Productions/ Stratosphere Music Releases Iyanola Riddim

Couch Mode
Iyanola was the name given to Saint Lucia by the first settlers, the Amerindians. Actually, the name in its modern incarnation is phonetically and linguistically different – the original name was modified to Iyanola by members of the Rastafarian movement in the country. Its meaning, like the riddim that now proudly carries it is the same – Iyanola the name was the first to capture the beauty of Saint Lucia, land of iguanas, home to a proud people that includes award winning songwriter and producer Courtney “Curty” Louis featuring keyboardist Stephen “Horseface” Mathurin in the mix.

The Dutch Productions/ Stratosphere Music riddim was built in Bois D’Orange, Saint Lucia; it is the first music released by the production house in 2012 and features Mongstar on “Saint Lucia We Love;” Ambi on “Madam La;” Scady Dot P on “Hey Scady;” Marie-Anne on “Fall in Love” newcomer J Budz on “Pumping” and Grenadian soca king
Mr Killa on “Do You Wanna Party?”

The Iyanola riddim is a departure from what is thought of as traditional soca with musical influences that include techno, funk and rock – all the songs stand on their own but played together gives a hint of what Saint Lucian music, its artistes and producers have to offer.
