Words by Deejay Theory —
Our ever-blessed Antiguan bredrin Skerrit Bwoy is back with the latest offering from his unique Electric Gospel project, fusing faith and music of all genres in new and unheard directions. The days of daggering 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 conceptions—as Skerrit notes on the cover, the church started the waving ting—and try this mix on—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.
