Rave Inna Church: Skerrit Bwoy + Electric Gospel’s “Soca Gospel” Mixtape (LargeUp Premiere)

November 18, 2013

Soca Gospel  Mixtape - Vol. 1 (SkerritBwoy x ElectricGospel)
Our ever-blessed Antiguan bredrin Skerrit Bwoy is back with the latest offering from his uniqueย Electric Gospelย project, fusing faith and music of all genres in new and unheard directions. The days of daggeringย in the dance are history for Skerrit, with gospel music taking center stage as opposed to the 12-foot ladder he was known for in his Major Lazer days…

Remember we hipped you to his new path and subsequent soundtrack, so it’s only fitting we keep you locked in one what the bredda’s been up to leading up to 2014. The title of this one pretty much sums things up, with soca and gospel intertwining for a full hour with the energy of a traditional Caribbean DJ mix, dance or carnival.

Dash whey your conceptionsโ€”as Skerrit notes on the cover, the church started the waving tingโ€”and try this mix onโ€”it’s safe listening for the whole family! If you’re in NYC and would like to get blessed in person, pass through the official Electric Gospel launch party on Friday, Nov. 29. Stream and download the mix below, and get the full tracklist here.
