The Phases Band, who hails from Vieux Fort, is pleased to announce the release of its debut single, We Like It, a soca, which with most of the instruments recorded live, represents a departure from the modern day practice where one sits at a computer and creates a riddim, the composer need not be a musician, knowledge of software and a library of sample loops are all what is required.
Given the way We Like It was created, it is no wonder that the song is filled with musical joy, and speaks of musical sophistication. It’s a song with a great variety of sounds and verve, its full of musical delights, and is anything but boring. We Like It is the marrying of kompa, cadence, soca, and latin to create a memorable soca. It’s music that is equally at home in a jazz festival or in a soca jam. It’s a song destined to be a classic, a song that composers will visit repeatedly for compositional ideas. It is a musician joy and a fan delight.
