Duvaughn’s Ultimate Chutney Collection

Time for some more music! During last Christmas I was going through a poor phase (as we all do at times), so I decided I had to be creative when gift-giving to really show my level of care for my friends. One of my best friends (Duvaughn, whose blog can be found here) had always asked me to make him a Chutney CD. Now, the back story here is that Duvaughn is Jamaican, so we all know their native style of music is Reggae, Dancehall, etc… However, in our network of friends, most of us are Guyanese and we are more for the Soca and Chutney craze. Over the years Duvaughn has had to bare with us rambling on obscurely about Trinidad’s wicked music. I never had enough time on my hands to sit down and think up a collection for him, but seeing as though Christmas was on the horizon and I had just left my job, I had time to work my magic. This is definitely one of my better collections and I’ve actually shared it with several people outside of just Duvaughn because I’ve been told it’s THAT GOOD. I went all out and sourced the best possible audio samples and designed a full jacket for the physical album. As you will see below, I have actually typed out the lyrics for each song. I will warn you right now that some of the lyrics COULD be wrong because I literally transliterated each song myself. There’s unfortunately not a lot of good information out there about these artists and their works, so I have tried my very best to give the best credits I can so you can all support the original content. All of these songs are in English, but perhaps I’ll make a more West-Indian collection soon seeing as though there are a lot more wicked jams out there. For now, enjoy this one!
