Not so impressed by the soca. Guyanese artists have been mirroring the lame jump up soca that has been coming out of T&T instead of creating their own sound. The chutney is much more interesting.
The Official Blog of Afropop Worldwide: Guyanese Soca Madness from 2HOPE2HYPE
Rainstick & Veggie Man are two dudes who used to host a global radio program on East Village Radio called Cool Places in NYC. The show spun a feverish array of various and obsure styles rarely heard elsewhere. Since the show ended, the two now make up a duo called 2HOPE2HYPE that would have been keeping busy spinning at NYC parties and running this crazy, psychedelic tumblr.
Now, thanks to a Ghetto Bassquake, 2HOPE2HYPE dropped a deep mix of Soca madness from Guyana and beyond. Perfect timing as a prelude to the end of Summer. Get your sweat in! FREE music, y'all!
