The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection Gets Hot
The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection is pretty much truth in advertising. This is an absolutely massive three CD set featuring thirty three of the hottest tropical tunes under the sun coming from every corner of the Caribbean. Designed to pack out a dance floor and then some, The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection is a rump shaking experience from the first note of disc one to the final note of the mega mixed disc three.
It might be getting cooler at night here in Jacksonville, but down in the Caribbean the heat never dissipates and this album proves it. The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection is the sound of an endless summer and the sound of Carnivale year round. With something for everyone and from so many different artists, The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection is impossible not to like even if you have no idea what Soca even is.
From Rupee's, "Blame It (On De Music)," to Nigel Lewis', "Respond," this is a record that never stops moving and is overloaded with Afro-Caribbean and South American flavors; in fact it's bursting with tropical flavor. Awesome in every aspect of the word this gargantuan record of grooves is the sound of the paradise on repeat. With winter just a stone’s throw away, there's no better way to raise the temperature than with The Ultimate Soca Gold Collection.
