machygee's Bloghttps://www.blackvibes.com/machygee/Hello and welcome to my App!! My name is Machy (Ma-sh-ie), and music is my passion. I have been a DJ for over 20 years and have recently begun recording and producing music, creating drops and beats for clients. I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Tobago, which is the sister island of Trinidad (aka Trinidad & Tobago). I have always had a deep passion for music watching my father DJ all around Tobago as a youth. Before migrating to Boston, MA in the mid 1990's, I attended the Institute of Broadcasting careers in Trinidad earning a certificate in Broadcasting. Since then, I have had the pleasure of providing musical entertainment at several events across the New England area. You can listen to me live every Saturday from 5pm-7pm EST on BigCity FM (88.5fm), which is linked here on my App. Before joining the BigCity station, I hosted a segment on the now defunct station Vibe105.3. Aside from being a DJ, I also provide professional staging for events that include music players, speakers and lights for corporate events, weddings, baby showers and birthday parties. As a DJ, I also have a few of my own events in Boston, MA. While I am from the Caribbean, my love for music spans across all genres therefore when booking me for an event, I will musically entertain your ears with any genres you request.

Speaking in an interview on CVM Television on Wednesday morning, about his new collaborative Time Bomb EP with producer Dave Kelly and fellow artist Cham, Bounty said it was time for Dancehall to rise to the occasion, especially in light of widespread talk, that the genre is 'leaning on death's door'. "At this stage of the game, we have to move to another level. Because we are having a lot of disposable music, and people are saying the music deteriorating, and we don't have a stance on the global stage anymore and Afrobeats take Dancehall spot... We have to make our presence felt right now. We need to step up to the plate," the Warlord In October last year, producer JonFX had argued that the advent of the internet had caused experienced producers to be excluded from the music production process, which, in turn, has led to the songs coming out of Jamaica, for the most part being sub-par. "Social media gave us a lot of ego. That's one. There was a time when artiste use to be humble, wait at the studio. Now you have a guy send them a speaker with a laptop, they have a studio. That's another issue that we have. We have to get into the humility," he said. The award-winning producer's comments had come while discussing the state of Jamaican music production, in an interview with veteran entertainment journalist Anthony Miller on Television Jamaica's The Entertainment Report, this after Miller suggested that "new artistes will tell you they not going back to where the producers call the shots and tell us what to do." said.283081Bounty,Killer,Saysblogs/10-2023/283081-bounty-killer-says--s.jpgShenseea Explains Why She's Intent On Changing Her Soundhttps://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/machygee-shenseea-explains-why-274599/features/blogs/machygee-shenseea-explains-why-274599/Posted by machygee0https://www.blackvibes.com/features/blogs/machygee-shenseea-explains-why-274599/#commentsWed, 27 Sep 2023 13:00 GMTHaving mastered the Jamaican music market, Shenseea is focused on finding the missing link that will make her career take off in the United States.
