Precision Productions is pouring sensuous liquid fire onto their pulsating beats to create a smooth infectious sound, laced with all the ingredients needed for an unforgettably good time in their latest release, the Single Barrel Riddim.
Timed to perfection, this Riddim takes you past your frigid inhibitions, along the road of no return, and far beyond petty worries to a place where the atmosphere is a heady mix of heat, freedom, and gyrating bodies.
And with it, the team offers up a spectacle of music so licentious that only the perfect blend of risqué vocal ringleaders would do.
Teasing listeners to wander down this wanton path is the rich voice of Kees Dieffenthaller, balanced by Gabrielle’s siren call, combined with Blaxx’s singing potency, alongside Nebula868′s hardcore swing and Destra’s salacious charm.
All of these Single Barrel songs are a wicked concoction of vitality, seduction, and exhilaration brewed together, to form a flawless cocktail of Carnival 2013 fever that is just waiting to be spread, on Soca’s fertile worldwide music beds.

Released in Summer 2012, Dre Skull’s Kling Klang riddim has since been gathering momentum across the world, with support from David Rodigan, ZJ Elektra, Robba Ranx, Major Lazer, Benji B & Toddla T.
Named after Kraftwerk’s legendary German studio, the riddim takes some inspiration from their repertoire: Dre Skull’s beat revs up to the sound of an engine, then breaks into a minimal soundscape powered by cymbals, resonating bass and lasers that waver on computer game aesthetics before accelerating into the chorus. Sitting alongside cuts from Popcaan, Tifa, Suku and Deva Bratt, Beenie Man delivers his second voicing for Mixpak with “Super Model”, offering a 90s style delivery with throwback content to match.
In early 2013, Mixpak releases three accompanying videos for the riddim. Popcaan’s bike stuntin’ “So We Do It” and Tifa’s heavyweight “Champion Bubbler” dropped last month, leaving dancehall royal Beenie Man til last. Filmed on Hellshire Beach,”Super Model” sees Beenie pay homage to the coca cola bottle shape while he and his entourage rock the boat Jamaican style. Directed by Andy Capper (director of Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated documentary).
