7. Bunji Garlin— Truck On D Road
Bunji_Garlin

2014 was another big year for Bunji Garlin, and his Asylum Family. Given the overwhelming success of 2013’s “Differentology,” his contribution for this year was highly anticipated, and did not disappoint. The current Soca Viking (and former “Spaniard”) teamed up once again with Jus Now, the UK/Trinidad-based production duo known for their percussive rhythms (and for producing last year’s “Savage”), for “Truck on D Road.” Jus Now’s signature sound and Garlin’s vocals and energy made for the perfect banger both on D Road and in fetes, during the season and after. He even got to perform it on 106 and Park with rapper A$AP Ferg, as he continued his tradition of bringing soca where it never has before. —Marcha M. Johnson
