Viking Quest: Bunji Garlin’s Smartphone App

Words by Jesse Serwer—

bunji-garlin

Bunji Garlin is definitely having a big year. Not only was his “Differentology” the biggest soca tune to come out of this year’s Carnival season, but it’s looking like it might have the legs to become a true international summer hit, both inside and out of the Caribbean. The tune—one of the most seamless blends of soca and EDM to date—was recently remixed by Major Lazer on their Lazer Strikes Back, Vol. 4 EP; Diplo and crew also dropped the track during a climactic moment of their set at the Coachella Festival in California last month.

Capitalizing on his growing international profile, the soca star has launched his own smartPhone app, Bunji Garlin The Viking. The app isn’t the role-playing game featuring a jumbee-slaying Bunji clad in a Viking helmet we had hoped for given its title (Sequel!), but instead serves as an info source for his fans to get new music, news updates and show information directly from the artist.
