Carnival 2015 is fast approaching! With the release of new Soca every day and the countdown to the road exactly 7 days away. Is it just me or do you wake up to a new song by Machel just about every day, too?
2014 was the year of the monk, Machel! From his win in February as the International Power Soca Monarch in Trinidad & Tobago to his historic win in November at Centric’s Soul Train Music Awards for Best International Performance; the Ministry of Road (M.O.R.) performer is making great strides in promoting Caribbean music worldwide and he is surely helping to set the stage for future Soca artistes to come!
With collaborations this Carnival 2015 season alongside band member, Patrice Roberts, fellow veteran soca artiste, Destra Garcia, and reggae singjay, Christopher (Chris) Martin; while we are glued to our email inboxes awaiting that next release from Machel, we thought now was the perfect time to bring you a collective of Machel’s releases thus far.
In the playlist below, you will hear power and groovy soca tracks as well as singles fused with other Caribbean genres such as reggae and a dance mash-up track produced by popular electronic music project, Major Lazer.
