Toppa Top 10: The Biggest Soca Tunes of 2013

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 +1

Honorable Mention: Bunji Garlin, “Savage”


Experimentation paid off in a big way for Bunji Garlin in 2013, as “Differentology” wasn’t his only tune this year with a sound all its own. Produced by Anglo-Trinidadian production team Jus Now (sample their One Time EP featuring Bunji’s “Tun Up” here) “Savage” was built around a sample of Trini calypsonian Maestro’s classic tune of the same name, giving it a  soulful, analog feel that easily differentiated it from any other soca tune this year, or any other. —Jesse Serwer
