It’s no surprise that Machel took the crown for Power Soca in this year’s Soca Monarch, he has been winning it for years cause he’s bloody good at what he does. Like Ah Boss is a pretty good motto to live by, look for bacchanal, live for the carnival and do it like ah boss!
Of course he didnt just bring Like Ah Boss to T&T carnival this year, he also released Endless Wuk, Jump, Pop Ah Bottle, Remedy and Party Done to name but a few. We are feeling this one with Angela Hunte (well Kazabon in particular) — whose name you might recognise from her work with Major Lazer.
Taken from last year’s Nectah EP, this track finally gets a video. Skip to 2.17 unless you are interested in an odd Dr Frankenstein horror movie intro for this power soca track. Needless to say the track is Murlo at his best and it makes you want to Jump Up in a circle. Looking forward to more Doubla J and Murlo collabs.
Welcome back to the second HDD House Party, our podcast series exploring all of our favouirte genres, this time it’s a soca edition. We are joined by Murlo and So Shifty for a chat and a live guest mix from each of them. Both of our guests explore the different sides of soca Murlo takes on the 160 BPM power soca whilst So Shifty delve into their crates for a classic groovy soca mix. Hosts Kazabon and Hootie Who explore their favourite soca songs of the moment and the uniqueness that is soca.
Murlo has a new EP out of his bandcamp page and of course you can catch him at Hipsters Dont Dance as well as a ton of other places. So Shifty are constantly putting out great music which you can check out on their soundcloud. You can also check out their weekly feature on our site #unfuckwithable.
