Albums We're Waiting For

STORY BY: GUIGNARD VILMAR • FEB 29TH, 2016

Though there's a couple of albums from last year we still can't get enough of, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great lineup in 2016. Here are some of the albums that we can't wait for this year.


1. Carimi
Their last album, Invasion, has yet to come out the 5-disc changer in most people's cars. The live album, "Kite M Cho" made us fall in love with the tracks even more. With Michael's return to the band after a month-long vacation/mini retirement, we're sure the group's next album will solidify its position as one of the most popular bands in the HMI.

2. Enposib
We've been waiting for Enposib's album since 2014. In 2015, it was gracious enough to bless us with a hot cover of Magic's "No Way". Word on the street is the album will come out right after Kanaval. Till then, "No way" on repeat.



3. T-Vice
With the addition of Regimuzik to the band, fans and haters alike have been waiting to hear what will come out of that marriage. The band whet our appetite with NSA and we can't wait for the main course.

4. Klass
Klass has reigned on top of the HMI since the release of their hit debut album. Its sophomore album is said to have been ready since last year, but due to political turmoil, management decide to postpone the release till this spring. Fingers crossed.

5. Freedom
It's been 12 years since Freedom gave us Liberation: 1804. Twelve. Years. If you're like me, you're hungry for another 1804. Fortunately, we know Freedom's been in the lab working on releasing something new. Don't take it from me, though. These are his words:

@FreedomRecordz: "So much music brewing in the pot... this international stuff is a wrap!!! Doing Liberation 2 to give back to Haiti because I feel like my country needs me right now and believe me I have a lot to say...but the rest of the world starts getting music in English soon too"


Five Diaspora Winter Anthems

A few weeks ago, all 50 states reached freezing temperatures. The Polar vortex may be gone, but most of us still can't feel our toes. Since humans can't hibernate, staying in and hunkering down is only a temporary fix. Plus, we have to brave the cold to pay those bills. Good thing, we have music to warm...

Top 16 of 2016

2016 was an epic year for the HMI. We mourned over a few break ups and celebrated new beginnings. Throughout these ups and downs great music came flowing through our speakers faster than we could consume. Our playlist this year was extremely rich and diverse with hits from the former President to new...
