AUDIO: Soca Meets Techno on Mr. One Hundred’s “Palm Tree Destruction”

Words by Marcha M. Johnson—

Mr-One-Hundred-Mixpak-LargeUp

With soca steadily gaining momentum on the international music scene, and its following growing steadily, sub-genres and other interpretations of the culture are inevitably emerging from the most unexpected places. One such place is in the music of St. Louis, Missouri native Mr. One Hundred (a/k/a Paul B Davis), the newest act on the Mixpak Records roster.

If you couldn’t make it to Austin last week for the hottest bashment party Texas, and certainly South by Southwest, has ever seen, never fear—LargeUp is on the road again, and this time we’re getting the party started in Miami during this year’s Winter Music Conference.

The Winter Music Massive, co-produced by Electric Punanny, has become something of a WMC tradition. Previous parties have featured performances from dancehall legends Mr. Vegas and Johnny Osbourne, as well as an international assortment of the best bashment DJs.

NEW AUDIO: Fay-Ann Lyons, “Catch Me”

fay-ann-lyons-2

Trinidad’s soca power couple are doing their best to get us hyped for Carnival 2014 – first, we had Bunji Garlin’s Major Lazer and Kubiyashi track “It’s a Carnival,” and now Fay-Ann Lyons is dropping “Catch Me,” a soca-rock-EDM banger.

The track was produced by New York’s Richie Beretta, who brings his own interpretation of soca, complete with big drops, heavy guitars, and (of course) Lyons’s soaring vocals. Like Major Lazer, he is not a producer normally associated with major soca artists — if this trend continues, it looks like soca crossover songs might just be some of this Carnival’s biggest hits.
