Since the launch which took place on the evening of Monday 6th December on Freedom FM, there have been comments about the absence of the customary ‘Pep’ rhythm from the album. Adams explained the reasons behind the change to MiyVue.com.
“The album has 12 tracks and as usual Nu Vybes is always bringing good music to the federation. However, this year the tracks are different in terms of the variety. The reason for this is because we realize that we have to cater for the international market and not only St. Kitts and Nevis,” Adams told MiyVue.com.
According to ‘Juni’, as he is commonly known, it will take a while for persons to become accustom to the new variety of music, but says he is convinced that it will be embraced.
“We have to understand that it (pep) is our culture but if you are to make it internationally we have to create something that other persons can enjoy the same way we do. There are persons out there from other nations who cannot dance to our pep and we have to cater for them as well as for the local fans, hence the reason for the mixture on this year’s album,” he added.
The 12 tracks were written and performed by lead vocalist Gregory ‘Mention’ Hobson, arranged and produced by D. Thomas and include hits such as “De Answer”, “Flip Motion”, “Class Reunion”, “Sugar Mas”, “Criteria”, “My Sound” and “Fourth Quarter”.
Last year’s album was entitled, ‘Krossroads’ and featured 10 tracks which were dedicated to their fallen founding member Analdo ‘Al’ Williams who died August of last year.
