Carnival Soundtrack: Skinny Fabulous + Kubiyashi’s Vincy Mas Anthems

Words by Jesse Serwer

Vincy Mas might not have the same international prestige as Trinidad Carnival, Crop Over or Spice Mas, but St. Vincent’s annual festival, which kicks off today before climaxing July 8, has been the source of some of the biggest soca in recent years. Much of that has been on account of Skinny Fabulous, who has been holding the torch for Vincy soca with tracks like “Head Bad,” “Monster” and Machel Montano collaboration “Duracell Plus” and a tough, dancehall-influenced style not unlike Trinidad’s Bunji Garlin (Skinny studied at UWI, and has worked with Jamaican producers Daseca and Truckback).
