Soca Hideaway: Black Chiney’s Willy Chin Blends Keisza + Kerwin DuBois

Words by Maj Johnson
Willy-Chin-Black-Chiney

We’ve been hearing soca and pop music blending in all sorts of ways recently, and the occurrences are growing more frequent. In the latest example of soca meeting the mainstream, Willy Chin of Black Chiney has blended Kerwin Dubois’s Carnival 2014 contribution “Spoil Mehself” with Canadian singer Kiesza’s smash summer hit “Hideaway.” The mashup first appeared on the ridiculously good Black Chiney Soca/Carnival mixtape Uh Gosh! and, having turned a few ears, it’s now been upped to the Internet in its entirety.

You Rate It: MeLo-X Remixes Bunji Garlin’s “Carnival Tabanca”

Words by Natalie Weiner
Winter-Music-Massive-4

Suffering from a little Carnival Tabanca after this summer’s festivities? Well, DJ/rapper/producer/photographer/Beyoncé collaborator MeLo-X is bringing you the perfect soundtrack—a minimalist, electro-R&B rendering of Bunji Garlin‘s single of the same name. The track is a natural choice for MeLo, who also happens to be one half of DJ duo extraordinaire Electric Punnany, and Jamaican by way of Flatbush, Brooklyn. The original “Carnival Tabanca,” though mellow for a soca song, generally maintains the genre’s upbeat vibe. To change things up, MeLo frames Bunji’s vocals with a stripped down sound we’d expect to hear next to R&B artists like FKA Twigs and SZA, lending his ode to the carnival season a more melancholy, edgy sound. Eventually the irresistible piano groove returns though, bringing the track back to its festive roots. Listen to the remix below, and stream/download the entire Inside the Mind of MeLo 4 mixtape on Soundcloud.
