Now, with the Soca roundup we want to give you a selection of new tunes of Soca and other styles like Bouyon, Calypso and Steel Drum. The Caribbean, esp. the Lesser Antilles, are still a hotpot when it comes to fresh music.
Your trustworthy hosts of the Soca Roundup are Dave, the soca die-hard from Paris and Marflix, de original bacchanalist from Berlin. Drop us a note in the comments how you like this new section on TropicalBass.com and what you’d like to see more in future episodes.
Jus Now – Tun up feat. Bunji Garlin
Before we start we have to rate this mega banger by Bristol-based team Jus Now. This one will blow up every roof at every Soca party on this planet!
Shurwayne Winchester – My Music
Very nice R’n’B’ish track produced by UIM Records (Jamaica) including a black and white video without the usual Carnival stereotypes.
Denise Belfon – Wining Queen
In opposite to Shurwayne, Trinidad’s own “Saucy Wow” is 100% Carnival with tribal costumes and – of course – wining. Nice out-take of the Project 5 Riddim by StarBlu Ent. & Millibeatz Ent.
Roy Cape All Stars & Blaxx – Leh Go Offical
Another official video-clip representing Trinidad Carnival – Blaxx from the Roy Cape Allstars.
Supa Mario – Wuk It
Nice and mellow groovy track by Antigua’s Supa Mario, who simply likes the girl to wuk it!
Written & Performed By: Supa Mario
Produced By: 3P Productions
Mastered By: Kamau Georges
Blood – Go!! / This is the one Remixes
Amazing remix project by the soca label Faluma: Tropical Bass producers from all over remixing Blood from Barbados. Remixes by SoShifty, Murlo, Poirier and many more.
New Bouyon Riddim outa Dominica
Jammerz HP – Fete feat. Avalance
St. Thomas in BVI’s just had it’s Carnival. This smasher is by Jammerz HP.
Fusion Band – We Wan Jam
More VI Soca, but moving over to St. Croix with this bad tune by Fusion Band.
