Lifestyle Blogger ShannyDeLioness is back for another week of “Mixtape Rave“! This week she serves you an array of Mixtapes she’s been feeling over the past 7 days. If you missed the 1st installment, check it out here.
DJ Charlotte is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s hottest DJs. This release coincided with the 2016 YUMA Carnival Band launch for Trinidad Carnival and it is a sweet mix indeed. The perfect confectionary of Soca, Dancehall, Hip Hop and Top 40 hits. Released 2 Months ago on her Sound Cloud, it is a favourite for me!
Those who know me well know that I love EDM as much as I love Soca and Dancehall! Barbados’ finest (To me definitely), DJ Puffy goes in hard with this EDM mix. I literally feel like I am at Tomorrowland or some other huge EDM festival just listening to this high energy mix.
Taking it back to yard (never stray far from my roots)this time around, this mixtape showcases the talents of 2 members of one of Jamaica’s hottest Sound Systems, Chromatic. This mix of some of the hottest Top 40, Hip Hop and Dancehall hits and numerous Dub samples is an eargasmic treat.
With chart topping hits in Reggae and Dancehall, I-Octane felt it was only right to try out other genres. In his latest project, Octane hails the Island of Barbados with “The Crop Over EP“. Featuring Soca tinged singles, I-Octane wants everyone to move, get on bad, and know that he can fit his vocals over any production. Featuring a collaboration with T. Smallz and production from the likes of DJ Puffy, Peter Coppin, and Gorg, this should be a part of your daily listening to get you ready for “Crop Over“. Check out the EP below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Taking it to another Caribbean Island this Oldies Sunday. The selection comes from Trinidadian artist, David Rudder. Titled “High Mas (Give Praise)” and produced by JW Productions in 1998, Rudder brought the church to the Mas (Masquerade). With great backup vocals and a energetic Calypso production, the song was done as a prayer asking for guidance during the Carnival season in Trinidad & Tobago.
It’s a Caribbean connection today as Grenada’s Lil Vaughn and Jamaica’s QQ release “Overdose“. Here we see the two artists hanging out with some ladies and spreading the message of partying and enjoying your life to the fullest. Ladies can check out the artists while the fellas can check out the dancing ladies as they bring many styles to the visual. A clean visual with lots to check out and a energetic single with its mix of EDM, Dancehall, and Soca.

Today’s mixtape goes out to all the revellers. Trinidad’s Shane Talon released the fifth volume to his “Wuz De Scene” series. Here he mixes over 2 hours of 2015 Soca hits to get you ready for the Easter weekend, and the next Soca event. Always a great mix from the DJ I’ve always said has every single Soca song known to man. Time to get on bad by checking out the mix below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
