Recording Artist/Producer Jus D. wants you to get ready for Crop Over 2016 with his new single, “Give It To Me“. Produced by DRWTHVN and Dev Kutta, they deliver an energetic single that will result in booty shaking, gyrating hips, trucks being used as props, neighbours raving with you (or arguing), and an overall good time. The Future Soca movement, which combines Soca, Dancehall, EDM, and Afrobeats, is ready to flood the streets, the airwaves and your playlists, get ready for it. Get familiar with the Bajan fire starter by checking out the track below, and share your thoughts in the comments section.
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.
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!
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“.
