Notting Hill Carnival may not be happening in 2021, but that doesn’t mean soca is taking a rest! If you want an authentic taste of that infectious sound you need to stream the ‘Sovereign Riddim’, featuring vocals from the reigning Queens of Soca in the UK! Alison Hinds, Ms. Desire, SunDivas, Chenelle Andrew are on board for this five track all female EP released by new UK independent record label, BPSOCA Music, a new UK independent record label that focuses on finding and working with up and coming home grown and international talent and showcasing their Caribbean music influences.
All tracks are written by Trinidadian Darryl Gervais and produced by Kyle Phillips, the lead producer of BadJohn Republic. Speaking of the exciting project, record label CEO Gareth Sinnerine said “I was inspired to release this EP as the genre of Soca is male dominated although there are many top class female artists who are yet to be heard internationally. Not only are we trying to elevate Soca and other genres of Caribbean music in the UK, but also UK-Caribbean female artists as well.” Listen to more of BPSOCA Music here via Spotify and Apple Music.
