Another year, another set of crowns for Machel Montano. “Mr. Fete” won the Power category again at the International Soca Monarch competiton on Friday with “Ministry of Road (M.O.R.),” narrowly missing a sweep as Kerwin DuBois took Groovy Soca Monarch. “M.O.R.” meanwhile was inescapable at Mas in Port of Spain, taking the Road March title with a whopping 374 plays, more than six times the nearest competitor. In light of his continued success, it’s only appropriate on this Throwback Thursday back to where it all started for Machel.

If you haven’t noticed from most of our recent posts it’s officially Carnival time in the Caribbean today and the music and vibes are flowing like rum around here. Grab these mixes to get into the spirit of the fete, but don’t hold us responsible if you end up wining on a co-worker or stranger on the train.
