Soundtrack Information:

With each of its productions, Prime Factor Films, Inc. its two most recent films, Prime Factor has skillfully produced an accompanying high-quality soundtrack featuring rising independent music artists from around the country! This collaboration takes you on a musical journey through a short time span in the life of Guy Ali in indie romantic comedy, Checkmate. The film is available on DVD through Cinemode TV and through Amazon. The title track "Checkmate", a rap by Kept See, expresses the theme and plot of the story with a flair of hip-hop. O'dinero's "Alone" explains how Guy feels very early on in the story. His wife and business partner betray him. He spends four years in prison and when he returns to the outside world is immediately faced with the fact that the family home he secured for his now-deceased parents is going into foreclosure. An interlude, Kewin Muhammad's "My Kind of Girl" adds a bit of sunshine in the midst of all Guy's rain. A major transformation is introduced in one of the most significant characters in Guy's life by UCall Gooden's calypso "Coming in Clear", is further egged on by Steve Waide's rock 'n roll cut "She By The Danny Kordz Adventure" and finally brought to its peak with "Empty", a pop song by Mimi and the Grapes. "It's Over" by Kimmily Paulette slows things down with a bit of jazz and turns over a new leaf in Guy's life. The pace picks back up with Unknown's rap "Yeah Yeah", which accompanies Guy in a very critical point in the five-day chess tournament he enters. Azriel St. Michael's "Without You" brings resolve and new possibilities in a satisfying finale.
