AUDIO: Jus Now Remix Machel Montano + Kes the Band

Words by Jesse Serwer—


Jus Now, the international production combo consisting of Bristol, England’s Interface and T&T-based LAZAbeam, are making some of the freshest soca  right now. (They also made one of the coolest videos we’ve seen all year, for the soca-inspired-but not-exactly-soca title track from their One Time EP)  “Differentology” excepted, they’re responsible for a currently scorching Bunji Garlin’s best tracks this year, including the calypso-fueled “Savage” and “Tun Up” off the aforementioned One Time. LazaBEAM, operating solo, produced another recent Bunji favorite, “The Canvas”

Road Movies: Eight Soca Videos For Trinidad Carnival

Words by Kimberly Burgess—

Machel Fog video

If you’re ready for Carnival, but can’t revel in the bacchanal of Trinidad & Tobago’s second-to none annual street party (the best street party in the world, in our opinion) today and tomorrow, these videos are sure to make you feel as if you touched di road! Watch some of the best (and worst) Trini soca clips released during the run-up to this week’s Carnival, from Machel Montano, the Roy Cape All-Stars & Blaxx and more. (And, for even more soca madness, download LargeUp’s Fog Up D Place mixtape from Major Lazer’s Jillionaire).

Iz Ah Trini: Trinidad James On Trinidad (+”All Gold Everything” Soca Remix)

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Trinidad James Shaggy

Rapper Trinidad James returned to his birthplace of Trinidad last week, performing at Machel Montano’s Machel Mondays concert and shooting a video for his new single “Females Welcome,” with a cameo from Shaggy. While there, he also released a soca remix (though soca-ish would describe it better) of his hit single “All Gold Everything” featuring Machel, Pitbull and Shaggy (Stream it, and watch a clip of him performing it at Machel Mondays with all three below). It seems Trinidad is really repping his Trini roots. And, to think, we weren’t sure if he was really Trini when we first came across him.

Video: Machel Montano + Freetown Collective “Represent” For Trinidad

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Machel Montano Represent

The 13-minute-long clip for Machel Montano and Trini band Freetown Collective‘s “Represent (Remix)” is definitely not your typical soca video. As much of a short film as it is a music video, the visuals are a continuation of God Loves the Fighter (read our story about it here), director Damian Marcano’s upcoming movie set against Port of Spain’s criminal underworld. And, though the song has a soca riddim, it’s message is a cultural one more typical of reggae.
