#TBT: Square One x Alison Hinds - Faluma

The year was 1998 when I fell in love with Square One's Alison Hinds, I mean sweet Jesus what a masterpiece of a woman! Anyway this week's Throwback Thursday is coming courtesy of Square One x Alison Hinds who gave us this Soca classic in 1998, which just ran riot all over the airwaves and is still such a guarantee dancefloor pleaser.

Trailer: Captain America - Civil War

First off let me say this, I shall not be watching another trailer for this movie until I walk into the cinema to watch this movie. With that said we don't celebrate Thanksgiving over her in the UK, but we can share the level of joy and happiness as our US brethens thanks to those wonderful people at Marvel HQ (Kevin Feige you remain a DON!). I was told it was a teaser trailer so I paid no attention to it, but then I say too much buzz for a teaser. This is our first look at what's all about to go down from the incidents of Avengers:Age Of Ultron and Winter Soldier come to head in Civil War. Good Ol' cap will go head to head with Tony Starks in the forthcoming Civil War movie. It will split the team right through the middle with many key players show up in this movie bar The Hulk and Thor (boooooooo!!) having to choose a side. 

If you pause for a minute 2k16 will see Batman vs Superman and then Captain America vs Iron Man, let's skip Christmas and New Year's and skate to March (Oh Deadpool is out in February, great choice for Valentine's Day date you're welcome!). In the footage you see many of the usual suspects but the introduction of Black Panter is the real eye-catcher. Yes the prince of Wakanda makes his full MCU debut and looks sick in his attire. The question you're left with after watching this trailer is which side is Black Panter repping for? Spider-Man is also featured in this movie but don't think Marvel are trying to sell their movie using a Sony owned character, so don't expect to see him until the final trailer before the movie comes out. Here's the official synopsis of Civil War;

“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Video: Ricardo Drue - Bet

I entered Miami Carnival 2k15 a total audio virgin to Ricardo Drue. But after the dust settled I became a fan as he easily had two of the most requested and crowd pleasing songs in Vagabond and Professional. So fast forward to get ready for Carnival season for 2016 and Agent 009 is back with a new one called BET.

Audio: Farmer Nappy - BamBilamBamBilamBilamBam

You need a healthy diet of Soca in your life to take you away from all the bullshit that's going on in the world. Farmer Nappy brings us the BamBilamBamBilamBilamBam, you know the BamBilamBamBilamBilamBam? No me either but this is getting me through the cold nights of winter! 

Video: Chase & Status ft Giggs - More Ratatatin

The production duo Chase & Status link up with the Hollowman himself for this track called More Ratatatin. The internet is a funny ole place for people with opinions as the youtube commentators are at full force in regards to this song "beat doesn't fit Giggs" or "someone else should've been on this instrumental". I appreciate Giggs getting out of his comfort zone and jumping on a Chase & Status produced track, without trying to sound like something he ain't. This is available to purchase now.

Music Video: Missy Elliott x Pharrell Williams - WTF (Where They From)

The last album we got from Missy was the Cookbook in 2005, I'll let that sink in for a few minutes. Normally I get frustrated when great artist of our generation disappear from the scene but understand Missy had to deal with some health obstacles and now she is back as promised, looking healthy and giving it to us like it's '97 again. Sick production with Pharrell on the boards and gives us a verse and the video is no let down either, Missy's standards are high if you ever forgot. Now I know it's early doors but hopefully she has something cooking with Ludacris, as those two make that hot shit!! I'm fucking happy right now haha.
