Carnival Mix # 170 - More Early 2015 Riddims

The Obsidian Awards, celebrating Caribbean and African achievements in Calgary, is on this Thanksgiving (Canada) weekend and Maxi Priest was in studio for the previous reggae show. He stuck around for a couple pics with the crew, so we played a couple of his Soca collaborations to warm up for the concert.  We also featured 3 new riddims to tease Carnival 2015.
