CALI P is upbeat ahead of his EP titled “Vizion I”, which was released today online and debuted straight at the top of the US REGGAE CHARTS (Itunes).
The project is a collaboration effort between the Guadeloupe-born reggae singjay and Berlin-based music producer TEKA of LOW LOW PRODUCTIONS.
“I’m very excited about this upcoming EP, so far the vibe has been very positive, the pre-order sales are looking good, so we anticipate that it will be well received,” he told the JAMAICA OBSERVER in an interview today
The project, the first of three EPs that he and Teka plans to release, features four songs — “Baddest”, “Life Lessons”, “Hold Me”, and “When Things Go Up”.
CALI P said Vizion I was created to introduce a new style of music, which fuses various genres like reggae, trap and dancehall and styles from the sound of LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY to MIGOS.

The lyrics are as up-to-date as the music itself: ‘‘Baddest” pays respect to the dancehall visionaries of the past in a rough combination of offbeat and trap vibe. Teka’s well-known Migos remix provided the inspiration for Cali P: On ‘‘Life Lessons”, upon which he singjays a manifesto for pacificm.
The pop-infused ‘‘When You Hold Me” is a feminist nod to lovers rock of old, while on ‘‘When Things Go Up” a rousing bassline floats underneath bittersweet lyrics, which reflect everyday struggles. ‘‘Vizion I‘‘ proves that there is a bright future for reggae, CALI P & TEKA.
