Motto is the professional name of Soca music star Lashley Winter. A native of the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia, since 2014 the multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer has dominated Dancehall, Afrobeat and Soca music. Through his solo work and that of the artists he produces on his New York City based Teamfoxx record label, he has delivered a seemingly endless string of club hits.
For his latest single, Motto has teamed up with New York’s Hot 97 (WQHT) influential DJ Bobby Konders. For more than three decades Konders has been a central figure in the city’s legendary dance music scene. As a DJ, producer and promoter he has helped shape the Hip-hop, Reggae, Disco and House scenes in the Big Apple, and by extension the rest of the world.
“Playing Games’ ‘ is the brand new single from Motto and Bobby Konders, released worldwide to all major streaming services on October 15, 2021. The song is an advance single from the forthcoming BBP/POE Digital album, “Soca Quarantine Breakout with DJ Bobby Konders.” Riding on a classic, mid-tempo Soca groove, Motto calls out his girl for playing him “like a Playstation” while he is trying to put a ring on her finger. A low guitar plays the song’s main riff as the singer alternates between the song’s infectiously catchy chorus and a melodic rap verse.
