Kings and Queens of Soca

Posted on January 31, 2017

"Ken this is probably the best song I have ever written" - the remark that really got my attention. In between the daily casual conversation between Nesta and I, the statement struck me. He played the song and it sounded like a distorted rhythm session with some humming over it. Noticing my lack of astonishment, Nesta explained this was version 1.0 and beneath the hums, real words will soon come. The underlying theme of this story is, to ...

Bag Of Vibes

Posted on January 20, 2014
