DJ lemme see yuh work!


A HUGE part of Caribana for me is the Soca. We await the new tunes every year when they come out in Trinidad in Nov./Dec. We're lucky in Toronto to have a Soca season of 7+ months.
My first exposure to Soca was 10 years ago with Square One. I was hooked with Togetherness and Jack Up the World. Then for the 2001 season it was Machel Montano's Stalker & Destra's Tremble It. I would inline skate along Cherry St. area blasting these tunes, getting ready to play mas.
Of course Machel, Destra & lately KES always come out with some hits, but every year, I do wish djs would spin the hot tunes from other artists, because there are so many. Just check out Torontolime, the tunes are endless!
Here are, in no particular order, some (certainly not all) of the not-played-enough tunes I like this season.

Kryptonite - 2Ntrigue

Baby - 3 Suns

You are the One - Jungle ft Keil

Tonight - Alaine ft. Machel Montano

Umi Marcano - Some More

Put it on Me - Cha'randi

Push Yuh Body Gyul - Marvin Bostic

Soca Circus - B-Unnique ft Macka Diamond

Wuk Up Yuh Bumper - KeKeRe & KK

Jungle G & Scar - Swanky Gyal

So what are your favourites this Caribana?
