TropicalBass Soca Roundup #1

Posted on 16 May 2013 by Marflix

roseau carnival New series here on! You might have run into Andrès Cumbia Weekly Roundup or Leub’s Reggae & Dancehall Roundups.

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 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.

365 Riddim

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.
