Major Lazer pulled a fast one on us with a new surprise release, the Soca Storm EP. The three track adventure is in early celebration of carnival season, with Mardi Gras less than a month away from kicking off in Trinidad and Tobago. Two soca music stars are featured on the EP as Mr. Killa provides support on two of the tracks, with another big figure in the scene Zeek providing vocal contributions to “wet it up.” The tracks maintain a heavy influence from the musical core of the group, with a little extra jolt of energy from drums and synths that rock a festival like nobody’s business. The EP gives us one more release to cherish as part of what will soon be a past archive of Major Lazer jams; the act’s final album drops later this year.
our first release of 2020. soca vibes for everyone about to celebrate carnival.
