Soca in Space: Machel Montano’s “Happiest Man Alive” Video

Words by Marcha M. Johnson—

machel-montano-happiest-man-alive

“Happiest Man Alive” was Machel Montano’s first release for the 2014 Trinidad Carnival Season and, now, the reigning Soca Monarch and his frequent visual collaborator Damien Marcano (director of the feature film God Loves the Fighter) have blessed us with visuals for the fan favorite. But this isn’t your conventional Carnival music video, with throngs of people and monster sound systems pervading the streets of Port of Spain. It’s actually almost the complete opposite.

AUDIO: Bunji Garlin, “Truck On D Road”

Words by Natalie Weiner–
bunji-garlin-truck-on-d-road

2013 has been quite a year for Bunji Garlin – already an International Soca Monarch several times over, Garlin continued his reign (at least metaphorically) with international hit “Differentology.” The song won the Soul Train Award for Best International Performance, is currently in rotation on HOT 97, and was even featured on Grey’s Anatomy (!?). He even brought the tune to LargeUp, performing it for us at the Okayplayer Holiday Party with the Roots, and the LargeUp Sessions just a few weeks ago.
