Today I introduce the first in a new series titled “Mixtape Rave“. Hosted by Blogger Shannydelioness, she scours the Internet to bring to you some of the mixtapes she has been feeling over the past week. Please note that Shanny is a Soca Junkie and there’s a chance your favourite DJ’s mix might be featured. Tune in.
Sweet Soca at its finest prepared for the Miami Carnival Warm Up by one of Trinidad & Tobago’s best DJs. DJ Private Ryan’s mixes renewed my love affair with Carnival so of course they are a must listen for me. I love the mix of Soca artistes from T&T, St. Lucia, and all the other islands in between.
2. Summer Festa 2015 – Dei Musicale
This mix starts off with one of my favourite songs, Lean On (ft. MO) – Major Lazer & DJ Snake which ushers in some of 2015’s hottest Dancehall, EDM, Soca and ending with the hottest Hip Hop selections.
I have Youtube’s search engine to thank for discovering DJ Puffy’s musical genius (my Tunein app is stuck on Slam 101 every evening so I have the chance to listen to his show). This promo mix is PURE VIBES!
This mix by one of my favourite local DJs keeps me wining from start to finish. The transition from Soca to Dancehall is seamless.
Dei Musicale are known as the Musical Gods for a reason! This Soca mix is pure fire!
All hail DJ Franco! This is a mixtape I’ve discovered on Twitter. The Soca Advantage series is officially a staple for me.
It was 13thStreetPromotions‘ first mixtape and it was not a disappointment at all! The perfect mix of Hip Hop topped with a sprinkle of old school Dancehall vibes.
Curated by 13thStreetPromotions and served by Blaze 876 Radio’s DJ Fusion! If you don’t know who DJ Fusion is, you need to download the Tunein app and find Blaze876 Radio now! This mix is straight FIRE!
8. Soca Yes Soca Promo Mix – DJ Levi Chin
Another 13thStreetPromotions find. Though it was released earlier in the year, this Soca mix by one of St. Lucia’s hottest DJs is still in my regular rotation.
This man MADE my UWI Carnival experience! We are not even going to talk about his party series, DUSK (I’m eagerly awaiting DUSK 2016). For me, the name Richie Ras is synonymous with a great time and this mixtape is no different.
My FAVOURITE Cropover mix for 2015!
