Wining Queen Denise Belfon has dropped a soca smasher for T&T carnival which is an interpolation of Flavour’s Ashowa Remix. We are big fans of this Flavour tune and we love when musical worlds meet so we were excited to hear Denise give this Afro pop classic a soca spin. You can also listen to Kes the Band’s cut on the riddim here. The riddim will be available soon on J-Rod Records.
We recently came across the video for Ravi B’s Prescription and it is as much fun as the tune itself. We love when soca converts an everyday scene to one of jubilation (like the Palance video) and in this video we see Ravi B jumping back to life when doctors inject him with a shot of rum, followed by him roaming the isles of the pharmacy looking for his prescription! Look out for Shall Marshall rocking a limited edition Trinidad Converse t shirt. Remember
Like the other mixes in our World Carnival series the fourth mix celebrates carnival sounds from around the world, with tunes hailing from the UK, Trinidad, Jamaica, Nigeria and South Africa. The result being a flow between genres in way that replicates what we felt is the perfect carnival experience. With Soca Season in full swing we have sprinkled in some of our favourites from this year’s carnival offerings and there are also refixes from us and our HDD residents Murlo and The Large too!
