MM 33

BIG week here at Mixtape Mondays. From the farm to the streets, we’re keeping it 100 and holding a meds (at the same damn time) while leaving room to reason with one of our favorite new artists and prepare for the wildest street party on Earth. Just another Monday around here…

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.

LargeUp Premiere: Jus Now’s “One Time” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

JusNow-OneTimeEP

Occupying a space between power soca, steelpan and the freakiest outer limits of U.K. dance music, “One Time” is the debut single from Jus Now, the Anglo-Trinidadian duo of Interface (of Bristol, England) and LAZAbeam (of T&T). As jarring as the song’s unique sound is the accompanying video, a manic trip through Port of Spain’s streets, roti shops, parrot’s nests and a dojo full of karate kids. We’ve seen some ambitious soca videos this Carnival season, but this is some really next-level business.

Soca Survivor: The Return of Super Blue

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Soca star Superblue

The biggest news in soca this month is the return of Superblue —father of Fay-Ann Lyons and Terri Lyons, and the originator of the jump and wave craze—to Trinidad’s Soca Monarch competition. The winner of eight Carnival Road March titles and a record five Soca Monarch titles will make his first entry into the competition in over a decade next month, going head-to-head against his own daughters and son-in-law, Bunji Garlin.
