With the 2015 Trinidad Carnival season getting off to a start, British-Trini production duo (and regularly featured LargeUp staples) Jus Now have dug into the 2013 Soca archives to put their own twist on Blaxxโ€™s bacchanal instigator โ€˜Leh Go.โ€™ For their version of his hit, they’ve coupled the artistโ€™s commanding vocals with a raw rhythm section instrumental, managing to preserve the lightheartedness of the original tune while masterfully interpolating the sounds of a steel pan orchestra.

When Large Up interviewed the masterminds behind suchย Carnival 2014 contributions as Bunji Garlin’s ‘Truck on D Road’ and Machel Montano’s ‘D Junction’ earlier this year, they revealed that a collaborative project with the Laventille Rhythm Section was underway. Their ‘Leh Go’ rendition is indicative of the work being done and serves as a testimony to the group’s ability to adapt and innovative sound to soca music. Check it out nuh, and tell us if they improved on the original, or not.
