Music Review: Cali P’s The Strong

Cali P’s The Strong opens with an eerie Science Fiction keyboard and call-to-attention drum roll with a new millennium nod to revolution reminding one of the soul behind Thunderclap Newman’s epic “Something In The Air” which was a call-to-arms for a different time. “I’m a fighter, so I keep on fighting…defending the defending the right thing”…hooks galore make this a poppy, catchy and
also haunting escapade with images and colorful sounds that permeate the production in a way that keeps the listener’s attention moving to different areas of this record. “This is Cali P” he sings toward the end …short and sweet at three minutes and ten seconds, the way I like my music.

Promo person extraordinaire Racquel A. Reynolds tells us that The Strong is from the Inspired Studio in Kingston Jamaica and is a track from the award-winning movie The Grand Bizarre (Best movie, 2011). The song is available on ITunes.
