New NexCyx single out today
Popular Barbadian band NexCyx is planning a double treat for fans to start the summer – the release of a new single In Da Club and the staging of NeXperience, a music jam on Saturday, May 31, at De Bond, Kensington Oval.
The track will premiere today via social media and the band will perform it for the first time when they hit the stage for NeXperience along with guest artistes Livvi Franc (the writer of Rihanna’s What Now? single), Teff and Simon Pipe.
“We wanted to put on a show unlike anything that has ever been done before,” said Kris Clarke, band leader.
“We’re transforming De Bond at Kensington Oval into a mega club. It will be a non-stop, high-energy event with over 1 000 partygoers and live music fans converging to celebrate contemporary Barbadian music at its best.
“We have something up our sleeves, too; a surprise that will definitely be a treat. You have to be there to find out who or what we’re talking about. But it’s big,” he added.
The release of In Da Club meshes perfectly with the theme for the concert. The new single, a bit more hip hop than other recent releases, is definitely a party starter.
“I came up with the beat for this song while walking on the streets in Manhattan,” said NexCyx music director André Clarke. “It’s definitely a club banger; you can’t sit still when you hear it. It’s the perfect song to start the summer.”
Lyrics to the song were written by the band’s front woman Mahalia Cummins who, after rocking crowds in the Caribbean, United States and France with the band, is excited about putting on a quality show like NeXperience in her home country.
She can’t wait to perform the new single and is looking forward to jamming with some of her musical peers.
“Livvi is phenomenal; I love the direction her music has taken in the last few years . . . . Her repertoire is filled with so many beautiful songs.”
She also had high praise for Teff, who she described as blazing a trail in hip hop, and the talented singer/musician/producer Simon Pipe. (NS/PR)
