International soca pop star Kevin Lyttle debuts the video for his sizzling single, “Wine And Go Down,” which was released in November 2011. This is Lyttle’s first video from his highly-anticipated upcoming album, which is currently in production.
Released on his very own Tarakon Records, “Wine And Go Down” exemplifies the artist’s versatility as he embraces the role of a deejay/rapper to fuse with his acclaimed signature vocal-style, forming this hybrid of island soca and pop club fusion. The singer/songwriter teams up with Richy Peña (talented music producer of the Latin Grammy-Winning album Mi Niña Bonita), for the hit track, which has been making the rounds internationally on radio and in the clubs.
“Dancing is a strong part of our Caribbean culture, so when you hear the beats and the vibes, it makes you just want to wine and go down,” discloses Lyttle, on his inspiration for the video. “With the Miami backdrop and the sexy ladies bringing their moves to the dance floor, we captured all the action for you in this video.”
The video was directed by Hamlet Mark from Grenada, and was edited by a team that included Kevin Lyttle, Jacqueline P. James-Lyttle, Hamlet Mark, Parick Ramdial, Christopher Persaud, and Mark Shapley. It was shot on location in Miami and will see an official launch on Saturday, March 23 at the Blue Martini in Kendall, Miami. The red carpet event will be open to media and the public.
Lyttle shot to international fame when his smash hit “Turn Me On” grooved all the way to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Chart, representing soca music in the mainstream market in a way that’s never been done before, and hasn’t been done since. The track was from his self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records, back in 2004.

Combining two of the world’s favorite things, beautiful women and alcohol, international soca superstar Kevin Lyttle has another hit on his hands with his brand-new single, “Hot Girls & Alcohol.” Produced on the Super Soca Riddim by Black Shadow Records, whose claim to fame is Sean Paul’s breakout hit “Gimme The Light,” this track is sure to be a dancefloor favorite, worldwide.
Released on his very own Tarakon Records, “Hot Girls & Alcohol” exemplifies the singer/songwriter’s versatility as he embraces the role of a deejay/rapper to fuse with his acclaimed signature vocal-style, forming this hybrid of island soca and pop club fusion. This is his second hit single released within one month, as he continues to blaze a trail for soca music.
“I wanted to bring my classic sound to my fans but creatively step it up a notch by rapping as well,” Lyttle discloses. “When you’re around hot girls and alcohol, it makes you feel like you can do anything, and I hope this song empowers you the same way. It’s the same fun, feel-good vibe that I always bring.”
Just having returned from a European tour this week, Lyttle remains intent on bringing Caribbean music to all corners of the globe. He is also in the studio recording new music and working with numerous producers to bring the unique flavors and blends from the islands, to the world.

– Lil Jon –
Lil Jon is known to the hip-hop world as the “King of Crunk,” a superstar rapper and producer. What they probably don’t know is he started out as a dancehall selecta or deejay, as a member of the Four Seasons Sound System during the ’90s, in his hometown of Atlanta. Now the entertainer, formally known as Jonathan Smith, is coming full circle, flirting with his love of Caribbean music by injecting his unique crunk flavor into this year’s Carnival festivities in Trinidad.
Jon will not only be performing, but he has actually produced a beat for a collaboration between him, Latin hip-hop star Pitbull, and soca artist Machel Montano, called “Floor On Fire.” The success of the production has evolved the track into a full-fledged riddim, with numerous Caribbean stars voicing on it, including Kevin Lyttle and Mr. Vegas. As a result, a new breed of soca is being introduced and will see its debut on soca’s most prolific stage – Trinidad Carnival.
This is not the first major stage on which Jon has displayed his flair for island beats. He first appeared alongside Pitbull and Machel Montano at soca’s other big festival, Crop Over in Barbados, last August. He was also in Trinidad recently to kick off Carnival, performing with Montano at the annual WASA Fete on January 31.
– Pitbull, Machel Montano & Lil Jon
at Crop Over in Barbados, August 2008 –
“At Crop Over, we decided we would do another collaboration – but something fresh and from scratch. I went home, did the beat, sent it to Pitbull and Machel, and this time we also got into the studio together and the rest is history. Now with ‘Floor On Fire,’ dirty soca is born.”
Jon’s vision is to not merely spread the new flavas from fete to fete, but his goals are to bring international and mainstream attention to Caribbean music, in all its forms. His blueprint for this dynamic undertaking plots collaborations with soca, dancehall, reggae and Latin entertainers, and sees him trekking throughout the islands and also working the international circuit that celebrates Caribbean music.
As for his love for Caribbean music, Jon is drawn to the energy found within. “I like how it takes the party to another level,” says Jon, of his first taste as a deejay. “The energy of the music would have all the girls partying and getting crazy – it’s always a fun experience.”
– DJ Buddha –
Longtime industry playmaker DJ Buddha, music consultant to Jon and A&R to Pitbull, introduced the trio and is responsible for the fusion of sounds. “My interest falls in bringing good music to the masses and being able to expose our culture and brand to the world,” reveals DJ Buddha. ” I want people to understand that a lot of the music they know and love originated in the Caribbean, such as reggae, soca, calypso, hip-hop, reggaeton, merengue, salsa, and are fused from these small countries and rich cultures.”
A virgin to TNT Carnival, Jon is excited to be included in this year’s history. “I hear it’s the biggest, best and wildest carnival in the world.” He is also using the trip as an opportunity to shoot the video for the hit single, “Floor On Fire.” “I want to capture the true essence of the culture, and therefore shoot the video at AC7, and on Carnival Monday and Tuesday,” states the star. “I want to visually bring to the worldwide audience the energy of Carnival!” The single will be featured on his upcoming album, Crunk Rock, due out this summer from Universal Republic Records.
