Ready For Di Road: Watch Bunji Garlin’s “Differentology” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Bunji Garlin Differentology

The video for Bunji Garlin’s “Differentology” is one of the most anticipated ever from a soca artist. “Differentology” was the breakout tune of Trinidad’s carnival season, a season which has already produced some memorable, high-concept videos that have stepped up the game for soca visuals. Months have passed since Carnival hype died down, but the hype surrounding “Differentology” has only grown. Even The Guardian has taken notice, naming it first in a list of “Essential summer jams for 2013.” Throw in the fact that the video was shot (and publicized) back in the afterglow of carnival in February, and you have the biggest soca story in mont

Jus-Now

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.

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.
