8. Freetown Collective
Freetown-Collective

Lou Lyons and Muhammad Muwakil formed Freetown Collective in 2010 after meeting in university two years earlier, catching the ears and minds of the Trinidadian public with thought-provoking lyrics, and catchy song arrangements. Having graced stages in the Bahamas, Cuba, Grenada, Guyana and London and starred inย Blue Cinamon Group’s feature film God Loves The Fighter, the duo were last year sought out by Machel Montano to collaborate on the remix of his tune “Represent.” Did we mention their track “Good Swimma” with Tobago-born producer Q-Majorย off the God Loves the Fighter soundtrack album, which has caught the attention of Major Lazer and may soon be remixed for Major’s upcoming mixtape? Is it any wonder why they are a part of this list? โ€”Tishanna Williams
