@LinkyFirst3: The Jamaican Soca Artist To Watch!


Carnival season is in full swing here in Jamaica, and the Socaphiles will be wukking up and wining all day and night. One particular song will be given multiple spins, but what many will not know, is that it was done by one of their own…

Words by ShannyDeLioness

Yes you heard me right, we have a full fledged Jamaican Soca Artist! While we’ve had Dancehall/Soca/Calypso collaborations over the years by the likes of Beenie Man,  Konshens, Spice, and of course you all know of the late Legend Byron Lee and his Dragonaires, and the timeless Fab 5 Band, this Artist has taken his talents and determination and became the first to make it to the International Soca Monarch finals! His name is…Linky First!

Born Jason Henriques, Linky First has been blowing up the airwaves in Trinidad & Tobago and the rest of the Caribbean with his hit single, “Rock & Come In” on the Ruffin produced “Liming Riddim” since its release last year. He has since followed up with “Control It”, “X6”, “Doctor”, and “Naked Pon The Road”.

Mixtape Rave With @Shanny_14


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 previous installments, check them out here.

1. Ruppinz Volume 2 Part 1 – ZJ Liquid

ZJ Liquid is one of the undisputed Kings of Radio! If you know the Popcaan song that shares its name with this mix, you definitely have an idea of what you are in for once you press play. He fittingly kicks this Dancehall mix off with a song that probably best describes his status as a “Big LeagueDJ.

2. Soca Brainwash 2016 – DJ Private Ryan

DJ Private Ryan is a household name for a reason. Soca Brainwash was the perfect last lap mix for the “Greatest Show” on earth. It was the soundtrack of choice for a recent road trip and has been a go to mix for the past week!

2. End of Year Hits. Remembering 2015 – Radio Mix – DJ ​Kam​ Bennett

I have my brother to thank for my full on re-introduction to Hip Hop. I have found myself pausing from my Soca binges to take in the occasional Hip Hop mix and this one by DJ Kam Bennett from Minnestoa is definitely a go to for me. He masterfully takes you through 2015’s best offerings.
