Composed by producer Dwain “Dwaingerous” Antrobus, the hit was released for the 2014 Crop Over season, Barbados’ annual carnival celebrations that culminated in August, where it received much fanfare.
It also received a coveted featured on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Hot Tracks chart, during its week of release. Although diminutive in stature, Shanta Prince is a powerhouse on the stage. Her unique style of sound is evident in the soulful, groovy vocals that she belts out on “Stush.”
The catchy track is already a fan favorite with soca lovers in Barbados, where it has also been in rotation on radio since its release, and is guaranteed to gain more fans as it now bows internationally. BASSink Productions, lead by Dwaingerous, has been on the forefront of the Barbadian soca movement and has been integral in making the island nation a serious contender in releasing quality soca music, for years now.
Dwaingerous earned his stripes as the lead keyboardist in soca star Machel Montano’s HD Band, in which he continues to play and tour the world. He now brings sweet soca sounds to the global masses in a bigger way with the release of his musical productions.
