Machel Montano, Kerwin Du Bois feat Ladysmith Black Mambazo x Possessed

Last year’s Bacchanalist and Mr Fete profess their love of soca with a little help from South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Machel and Kerwin took a trip to South Africa to shoot the video and it looks like they enjoyed every minute of it – watch out for Machel’s bungee jump! Like soca, this tune has the power to posses.

HDD’s Top 20 Tunes of 2012

HDD TOP20_2012

As 2012 comes into its last few days we decided to  repeat last year’s near- impossible task of picking our top 20 tunes of the year. Based on the tunes we have been playing out and the tunes we have been listening to at HDD Headquarters, in no particular order, here are our top hip hop, dancehall and tropical tunes of 2012.

Atumpan – The Thing
Kerwin Du Bois – Bacchanalist
Miguel  – Adorn
Jeremih – 773 Love
Vybz Kartel – Party Mi Say
Machel Montano – Go Down
Kanye West feat Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz – Mercy
Konshens  – Stop Sign
Dom Kennedy – My Type Of Party

The Dream  – Dope Bitch
Popcaan – Party Shot

Picking just 20 tunes that summed up the year in music for us was extremely difficult so here are the tunes that came close but did not quite make the top 20.

Kerwin Du Bois x Bacchanalist

We posted Machel Montano’s Vibes Cyan Done a little while back which is on the same riddim (Antilles from Precision Productions) but we are predicting that Bacchanalist from Kerwin Du Bois will be the groovy soca anthem of 2012’s Trini Carnival. The new Wotless perhaps?! It certainly leaves you with that same warm uplifting feeling. The official definition of Bacchanal is an occasion of wild and drunken revelry ……. we would happily join Kerwin’s crew of Bacchanlists
