It is Friday, and we wanted a song to add some fanfare to usher in the weekend. Just as there is anticipation for the weekend, so too are carnival masqueraders; crossing the stage is an important ritual. Today, we return to Trinidad and Tobago, the mecca, for a song that you may have missed. There were so many excellent songs for Trinidad's carnival that this one did not receive the recognition it deserved. We present "My All," a song by Nadia Batson.
 
Nadie, as she is fondly known, is not just an excellent singer but also a prolific song writer. Quiet Storm, with additional production by Don Iko, crafts this song with excellent songwriting, sweet vocals, and superb music. Any fan of Soca music would love this production for 'palancing on-d-road'.
 
Here we are again—another weekend, another chance to go out and party and let off some pent-up frustration. Press play and let Nadia Batson help you shed your inhibitions and destress. If you plan to visit the islands for one of the summer carnivals, make sure to add "My All" to your playlist. Like and share with your peers. Enjoy!

In today's society, all the fuss is about Soca music. Don't get me wrong, I love Soca music. After all, this blog's name is Sokah2Soca. Today we are featuring a mixtape by DJ Del. She loves Calypso music, and for those 'not in the know' there was a time when all you got for carnival was Calypso. So today we pay tribute to the music that started it all, Calypso, and, as you will come to realize, Calypso 2 Sweet!
 
So, on Sunday afternoon, we plan to have a nice time, and we hope that this mixtape and music selection will inspire you to play more Calypso music. There is a specific time and place for everything, and we encourage you to incorporate calypso music into your home gatherings and observe the results. You will see people chipping to the music, and the wiser, older heads actually engaging each other and dancing, not whining to the music, as is the norm for Soca. 
 

We don't know much about Dj Del, but it appears that, judging from her contact number, she is based in Trinidad. Now about the mixtape: Calypso 2 Sweet is a mixtape by DJ Del that honors the nostalgic sounds of vintage calypso music. Regardless of your generational affiliation, this compilation honors the classic songs that have influenced our music memories. Get the mix from DJ Del's website and lose yourself in the nostalgic rhythms of calypso music.

 
We love our culture, and we love Soca music, but please show some respect to the music that Soca came from. If you don't vibe to this mix, then you are lacking an invaluable Caribbean music gene. Long live Calypso music, and yes, Kaiso too—damn sweet! Enjoy...
 
Notes from Dj Del's YouTube Post:
A mix dedicated to the sweet sounds of calypsos of yesteryear that we grew up listening to, no matter the generation.

This song really did a number on me. I got emotional and teared up listening to Sherwin Gardner's vocals. Even though I'm not religious, there's something about this song that I find inexplicable, but in the end, after listening to it, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the world. Listen and comment; the song does not need me to sing praises here. The vocals and the posted lyrics tell the whole story. Enjoy!
 
YouTube Music Release Notes:
"I created a short song of affirmation for a New Year’s Day post to set goals for what I desire in the new year.  When I posted the video, I was thinking 100 people might like it.  The next day, I woke up to over 100,000 views.  Now, it’s in the hundreds of millions on TikTok and Instagram. It has been totally unexpected, and I’m so grateful for the answered prayers."

Nessa Preppy's album "Little Miss Arima" features the smooth track "Motion." Amidst the chilly Saturday morning in the Big Apple, we transport you to the warmth of the Caribbean sunshine; "Motion" will change your state of mind. @AbeGotDatFuego's production layers a sensual vibe and playful implications on "Motion." We think you will love the vibe. 
 
The music video teases with visuals of Nessa at the seashore and inland against lush Caribbean greenery. She sings about desire, attraction, and the intoxicating feeling of being close to someone. Lines like “I want the motion, baby; don't let me go” evoke a sense of urgency and longing. We get it, and we can tell where your head is at this moment. So, dream on, young man!
 
Nessa Preppy's infectious spirit and teasing personality will have you dancing along to this sweet groove. At this time, after being transported from the chilly weather of NYC, you will definitely feel the warmth of the Caribbean. So hit play, let Nessa into your heart and mind, and take to the Caribbean sunshine with motion and sensuality.
