“Dredrock Rising” is the first globally released album by Plati and the Naykid-I out of the Bahamas, following various singles and music videos such as “Weego”, “I Want to be a Leader” and the brand new “Steamy Rider” which will be hitting international TV stations next week. The album is very special to lead singer Tyrone Bartlett aka Plati, who juggles a career as a medical doctor and the life of a musical artiste, fulfilling all his callings and following his talents and passions.
About the album, Plati says : “I am trying to create a nexus which unites the Caribbean with the world – not just musically but spiritually as well. I want this album to represent the arrival of Caribbean people to the global conversation about matters of the planet and to share in the concerns of the future of our world.”
Plati uses his music to create awareness about the Caribbean and wants to send a message of unity and strength but also always considers globalization as well as the entire universe. He creates music with a message, music with meaning and music that transcends boundaries. His music, he says, “represents a fusion of all the popular world genres into a singular voice. It represents a disintegration of boundaries both musically and geographically into a ‘one mind’ global consciousness.”
“Dredrock Rising” merges the sounds of the Caribbean – from Bahamian junkanno to Jamaican reggae to Trinidadian soca, with global sounds of pop and rock music into an eclectic mix of melodies, riddims and lyrics you have not heard before.
