The New Court yard will be brighter than ever tonight as local artistes launch their own music form called the 'Boom Drop'.
The launch is a collaborative effort between the Dynamics Studio and Fyah Gate Records.
Earlier this year word got around about the "Boom Drop music" and The Entertainers and other artistes took a try at it. Their music indeed boomed on the radio, in nightclubs and other places.
The Entertainers came out with "Ah, Ah, Ah"; Jermaine Brathwaithe (JB) did his dynamite piece "Fight No More"; Shelly Garraway who is now known as 'Shelly G' also took a try at it with "Party" and now persons are wondering if the sound of 'Alabama' is indeed Guyanese.
Today these artistes will celebrate their achievements at the launch and supporters will now have a chance to see them perform their pieces live. Showtime is 9 pm.
"Guyanese can now boast about their own music," Osley 'Spida' Hopkinson said in a recent interview with The Scene.
Hopkinson who built the "Boom Drop" rhythm said it came through inspiration and his love for music. "Jamaica has Reggae and Dancehall music, Trinidad has Soca and now Guyana has 'Boom Drop,'" said Hopkinson who is also the leader of the Fire Clan Band.
According to Hopkinson, Boom Drop is a little bit of everything; it's music that will make people dance.
