Just in time for the long weekend, and the official opening of the beaches. Caribbean Hitters // Memorial Day MiX Down podcast begins with Dancehall’s sensation Gully Bop, before spinning some vibes by the one and only Vybz Kartel. Then we take it to another heavyweight in Dancehall, Mr. Vegas. This week we spice things up with some hot Chutney vibes with Apache Waria, Terry Gajraj, and Heeralal Rampartab. We also throw in some new 2018 Soca tunes by Lavaman, Skinny Fabulous, Kes, and Nailah Blackman. Before heading into the Trance side of things with Maddix and The Chainsmokers. Then we enter into the Latin flavor with J. Balvin and Danny Romero.
Welcome to this week’s episode of Dancehall + Soca, the Road to Carnival Edition. We start off the mix with a remix of international dancehall star Sean Paul. Continuing on the remix path, we have a reggae version of Chris Brown’s Say Goodbye, done by Kiprich. This week follows the theme of good music, featuring the smash it Delilah by Mavado. Then we head into the bass thumping, fist pumping hits like Psy’s Gangnam Style and Calabria. Not forgetting new and instant hits on the soca side with a track by Kerwin Du Bois. We also throw in some international flavor spanning across multiple genres with Kanye West & Jay Z’s Paris, Baauer’s Harlem Shake, and The Chainsmokers with #SELFIE. Then we return to the soca theme with some hot riddims like the Whistle Drums Riddim featuring Trinidad Ghost with Bubble and Dip, also Scrilla with Wood. We decided to sample some chutney, desi and house tracks for the added kick, or rather a heavy bass. Even sprinkled some heavy hitters in the Power Soca sub-genre like Machel Montano, Lyrikal, and Bunji Garlin. To sweeten things up we also have tracks by Soca sensation K Rich and KES the Band. Not forgetting some new exclusives like Bunji Garlin and Preedy with Share It for 2018.
