FEEL THE FEEVAH! MUSIC SAMPLES


Rock Ya Body - The Feevah



CARIBBEAN DANCE SENSATION ON THE RADAR


With Dance music dominating the global airwaves it’s clear why new artist The Feevah has gravitated towards this genre and with a clear-cut winner like ‘Rock Ya Body’ under his belt who can blame him?

This ambitious track adheres to the expected protocols of popular dance culture embracing the dramatic crescendos and fades resulting in a production of mammoth proportions.

The simplicity of this sound gives listeners a light-hearted experience and all of this comes about without comprising the drama. The sound is fresh and transcends even regional recognition and gains momentum, expanding   on its journey for international acclamation.

The latter part of this track transcends slowly into a dub-step finale. The Feevah, by experimenting with ad-libs really gives this track a sexy finish.

The Feevah rides the rhythm with a cool lyrical control putting down one of his best expressive performances since the beginning of his young career.

Packed with lots of sweet melodies the harmonies and catchy hooks in this song are sure to make any lover of dance music ‘rock their body’.

The Feevah launched his debut Dance single to a lively crowd of tourists and locals at Oasis Wine bar who partied until the early hours of the morning.



True to his artiste archetype, he kept the crowd in suspended anticipation as he arrived to his own launch party -late, but later made up for it with a blazing performance.

Oasis bar located on the desirable west coast of Barbados granted that the night was special and provided a new and unique setting for party goers.

The Feevah who is native to Barbados but resides in the UK, has returned to his home determined to get Barbadians behind him as he launches his international career.



The Feevah is excited about the next leg of the ‘Get Ya Swagga On’ promotional campaign which will involve the release of his debut single in Germany at the beginning of 2012.

His launch in Barbados is the first in a line of countries which he will release his debut single in.

The success of the launch has encouraged the onset of a student night named Swagga Fridayz, Frat Party which will premiere 25th November 2011 Oasis, Holetown where other artists will be granted the opportunity to perform at his gig.

The sound merges psychedelic melodies with trendy Funky House undertones and a banging Dance baseline. He displays much in the way of stylistic wealth.  It is loaded with energy and lots of catchy hooks. This track has mass appeal and will be loved my many.

The Feevah hits you right between the eyes with unyielding lyrical conviction. Get Ya Swagga On is a feel good song with one objective, to fill dance floors.
It is Dance music from the most unexpected region of the world — The Caribbean!
