All over the world right now multi-generational shops of women are ordering feathers, sequins and spandex from China, preparing costumes for Karnaval/Carnaval/Carnival cruising season. In those sewing rooms they're probably setting stitching pace against the sounds of the flood of Soca chunes being recorded and released in anticipation of this year's parties and parades. This one from Benjai of Trinidad relies heavily on a quickly repeated insistence on its title, but airs itself out around 2:12, letting its keyboard sounds take a breath. Between now and later, load it pon your mobile then set an intention to eat all of the things you love best and hit your favorite cardio activity to get into the heart-full/fit mode for whatever street festivities you'll call home this season. Re-up on the soca-heavy blends from Ghetto Palms 76 and 127 while you're at it.
