Trinidad-based hit house MillBeatz Entertainment delivers a spicy combination with new track “Dheen Ta Na” from chutney and soca stars Rick Ramoutar and Denise Belfon, available worldwide from all major digital retailers on October 27, 2014, from FOX FUSE. The fusion of chutney and soca beats brings cultural flavors of Trinidad and Tobago and receives a prized feature on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Hot Tracks chart, during its week of release.
“Dheen Ta Na” features two top stars of soca and chutney – the genre that is an offshoot of soca, which incorporates East Indian instrumentation and Bollywood beats. Chutney thriller Rick Ramoutar teams up with soca songstress Denise Belfon for the duet single. Ramoutar, a household name in Indo-Caribbean households and famous for his chutney party anthems, returns with this new banger and adds to his audience and fan base with soca’s Belfon.
MillBeatz Entertainment was formed by producer David Millien, whose talent and fusion sounds have made him a mainstay on Trinidadian radio and on soca platforms worldwide. Regularly combining native sounds including soca, chutney, calypso, Latin, reggae and dancehall, Millien has managed to capture and fuse the essence of Caribbean music into each of his productions. “Dheen Ta Na” is right on cue with this mission of bringing all the flavors of the Caribbean to the global audience.
