Dancehall and the era of the Summer Song

written by owen, Fri, 23rd Jun

The first time I remember such a thing as a summer song was back in 2009 when Ding Dong dropped "Holiday". Many have been released since then but as far as I remember it all started with that first summer song. Enjoy my list and you suggest any that you remember that I might have forgotten in the comments.

Ding Dong Holiday - 2009

Vybz Kartel - Summertime - 2011

I-Octane - "Happy Time" - 2013

Vybz Kartel - Summer 16 - 2016

Cuba says hello

written by owen, Mon, 29th May

With as much spanish as I have been exposed to in the past year, you would think that I would know more than 4 words of spanish. Bano. Even with my week long vacation trip to Cuba and watching spanish language lessons on youtube. Que passa? A entire spanish novelas on Netflix? But alas, no. I am doomed to only contain one language in my brain at a time. But this fact has not stopped me from enjoying a good reggaeton de Cuba Mix. A couple of these videos are shot along the Malecón waterfront in Havana.

EL MICHA “Oye Tu Si Suena”


CHACAL “Pa' La Camara”

WILDEY “Palomita”

DIVAN “Hablale Claro”

ALEX DUVALL & EL MICHA “Yo Se Que Te Molesta”

WILDEY “La Puntika”

PETER NIETO “Se Desespera”

JAYBY & DIVAN “Delete”

QVA LIBRE “Por Estar Contigo”

WILDEY “Tengo Money”


CARPE DIEM “Cupido Me Engaño”

ALEX DUVALL “Porque No Le Dices”


DIVAN Feat. QVA LIBRE “Estoy Para Fiesta Contigo”

DIVAN “Sentimentalmente Disponible”

My Favourite Soca/Calyspo Songs 2017

written by owen, Tue, 17th Jan

I am getting a early start on this one this year. Cause I OTNO. I will continue to update this list as the year progresses. So far I have listened to 227 songs from across the Caribbean but who knows what fat will rise to the top as the year progresses. You can also view last years favorites or news list.

Anyway without much adieu.

Lyrikal - Feting Victim (Conect Riddim) (Trinidad)

I do not like the rythme on this one and I cannot find the one I actually like so this version will have to do for now.
Lyrikal - Picture Perfect [Breaking Dawn Riddim]

Nappy writes the best songs and he seems to be back again this year with some hard hitting hits;
Farmer Nappy - Miss Me Wid Dat (W.I. Riddim)

Farmer Nappy & Destra Garcia - "Technically"

5 Star Akil - Go Go Dancer (Sun Blast Riddim)

Farmer Nappy - Abundance (Trinidad)

Taxi Boi - Over Doing It (Carriacou)

Shortpree - She Want To Come (Carriacou)
