Because my friend Dub Boy has just done this excellent mix of St Lucian dancehall-tempo Dennery soca and I think you should all listen to it https://soundcloud.com/dub-boy/dennery-dancehall-style-mixtape

If Zing will stop going rogue, my actual post will follow now (the code word is “jab jab” in case you don’t hear from me again):

Right on cue, my favourite jab master Slatta has just released an actual album! (at 28 minutes for 10 tracks I guess technically it’s a mini-album or something, but who cares). Anyway, it’s called Darker Shades of Dark, and this is its first (raunchy) video:

A freestyle on Burna’s biggest pop hit, why not?

I started DJ Private Ryan's soca starter mix and was immediately blown away by his own track "Feel the Love" w/ the Freetown Collective, which is beautiful afro-fusion:

(^that's Preedy; Kerwin du Bois's Stinkface sounded good too)

rob, Monday, 13 January 2020 15:37 (eight months ago) link

cosign on “Feel The Love” (both versions), such a wonderful vibe.

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Friday, 31 January 2020 17:06 (seven months ago) link

Hard to post right now but it’s DJ Private Ryan’s mix

I actually have a little playlist going of 2020 Carnival tracks that I only just realized has tons of stuff I never posted here, so prepare to be spammed

rob, Friday, 31 January 2020 20:10 (seven months ago) link

Machel's "Boss Wine" has a sorta Badman Pull Up energy to it:

Bunji's "The Struggle" brings the gravitas but stick around for the horn line:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KgvbgO2UK0

I think I posted this in the last thread? Nailah & Olatunji "Woi Ya"; pure vibes:

Rob you got Spotify? I know it's bad and hated but it's the easiest way for me to hear stuff

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Friday, 31 January 2020 20:28 (seven months ago) link

for complicated personal reasons it's a Google Music playlist--I'm happy to share it if that's of interest? I do have a Spotify account too and could reproduce it there, but I might wait until I've narrowed things down a bit so I'm not doing the same thing on two services

rob, Friday, 31 January 2020 20:31 (seven months ago) link

btw dog latin, I might have posted this in the old thread but I think you'd particular like this (?) Folk Tale Jouvert riddim, which is like soca carib-horrorcore:

rob, Friday, 31 January 2020 20:37 (seven months ago) link

oh shit this one is epic, Bunji & Sheriff--the team who brought us Differentology--on "The Sound":

xp loving this! not on Spotify yet so I'll have to make a note of it in my brainbank

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:06 (seven months ago) link

bunji garlin tune is a slammer too

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Monday, 3 February 2020 10:23 (seven months ago) link

Blaxx tune has a real spooky Jab aura despite not being from Grenada.

(reminds me of this from 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGd26NGvcm4)

Meanwhile, here's a driving bit of carnival power-soca from Asa Bantan and (my faves) Jus Now - Fete is Fete
