Carnival aka the fifth season is here – time to keep an eye and ear on the all the Soca releases which coming out now. Although nowadays Soca tunes from Trinidadian artists and producers are released through the whole, December and January are still the main months for Soca releases.
We put together a small list of tunes which will be big this Carnival.
If you want more, you can check out the over 5h Soca radioshow MashUpShow by Marflix & Hendrik UNLTD full of fresh tunes and anthems. On the 20th of January the Semi-finals of the Soca Monarch competition are held in Arima, Trinidad and usually they are streamed somewhere over the web – twitter is helpfull finding links.
