CarnivalMix-CJSW- Dec.28.2011 - Best of 2011

2011 has been a great year for Soca music; so much so that we found it a bit of a challenge to fit the "Best of the year" into a 1hr show.  After going over all the music that was played for the year, as well as each of our individual choices, it was inevitable that we were not going to agree on EVERYTHING that was chosen.  To simplify, we gathered together the most requested songs, the Soca Monarch Winners from as many islands as we could squeeze in, and the songs that were played the most for Carnivals around the world.  (A couple of our personal choices may still have slipped in)

We played the show in no particular order, but if one song had to get Track-of-the-Year, it would have to be a crowd favourite that reached further than just local Caribbean Carnivals.  With a Soul Train Award nomination each for 'Best Caribbean Performance' alongside the likes of Rihanna, the field got narrowed to Machel Montano - Bend Over and Kes the Band - Wotless. Who wins that debate might be another show entirely as Drew and Anthony give it to Kes, while Carrie is certain its Machel.  You decide.

Season's Soca Greetings

Its been quite a year for us here at CalgarySoca.com. Since we've started this project in early summer of this year, we've seen support grow week after week, so we decided to throw a Christmas party for all the Soca music lovers we knew in the city. Thank you to everyone who came out and made the fete one to remember. Big thanks to the staff at Soho Bar & Grill, "Prodigal Son" from the Black Squad for the added music, the entire CalgarySoca team, and Watermark productions for the vid.

      T.O. pioneer, Dr. Jay brings "Soca Therapy" to new radio station


      If you've been listening to Soca in Canada for the last few years then you should know the name "Dr.Jay" and his legendary Soca show on the "old" FLOW 93.5 that "made you wine from 6 to 9 every Sunday.

      Earlier this year, with a complete format change, many of the specialty programs were dropped from the station leaving Torontonian's wondering where they would get their next Soca fix. It seems the good Doctor has found a new home according to the official "Soca Therapy" website post earlier this week:

      'So you heard from this one and from that one that SOCA THERAPY is coming back and we can officially confirm that the rumours are TRUE. Dr. Jay's immensely popular radio show will be returning to Toronto's airwaves in its new time slot on SUNDAYS from 5p - 8p, on Toronto's newest radio station G98.7fm. Keep it locked for updates on the premiere episode of the new SOCA THERAPY. Thanks for your continued support.'

      Congrats again to Jay and the New KOS family. The station will be streaming live so you know we'll be tuning in when it starts.

      'Funding Drive' will keep Soca on the radio in 2012

      The show itself is pretty young, (today will be only the 16th show), but for lovers of Soca music in Calgary we hope that the "Carnival Mix" is becoming your weekly link to some of the best music that comes out of the Caribbean.

      Last week's 'Friday Fete' generated over $1000 which went to support 2 of Calgary's local bands and includes a $250 donation to CJSW radio from listeners like you.

      Today's show (October 26th) we hope to continue that support from listeners, as there will be giveaways throughout the hour.  Exclusive CD mixes, CJSW gear, and one lucky winner will get a gift basket including 2 tickets to your choice of ANY ONE Soca event that comes to Calgary in the next year!

      For more info on the station's funding drive, check out the article in Avenue Magazine

      The show is on live every Wednesday from 6-7pm on 90.9fm and streaming at www.cjsw.com

        Video of Cariwest Parade 2011

        In case you missed Edmonton's Cariwest festival. Here are a few user-uploaded videos for you. Enjoy.

        Machel "Taking Advantage"....of Edmonton....on a Wednesday!

        I know, I know its not the best day of the week to check a Soca phenom, but it is Machel after all!  We'll see you Wednesday August 24th at the Edmonton (yes Edmonton) Event Centre in West Edmonton Mall.  Machel Montano (no HD family) and Reggae sensation, Gyptian! Get all the details on the facebook page.   Call 1-855-985-5000 for tickets or purchase online.  You can get tickets in Calgary at Island Beat.

        Fay Ann put "Pressure" on Edmonton....and she wasn't alone!

        Last weekend's Cariwest Celebration in Edmonton was full of Calgary people both in the Parade and the Afterparty. True to form, both Calgary's T&T association and Sykotik mas brought out impressive costumes that took to the streets to show their colours. The highlight of the festival was of course Fay Ann Lyons performance at the Canadian Druze Centre later that evening.

        Thanks to Evan T Rutherford, I.V Entertainment and the Cariwest, the place was filled from early. The Soca was going strong right up until 3am with help from Vancouver's "Agent Mulda", Canada's most requested Soca DJ "Soca Sweetness" and a bit of "Hype" on the mic from Calgary-Soca's own, Drew Atlas.

        The surprise of the day was the announcement that Bunji Garlin was going to join Fay Ann on Stage that night. Needless to say, the party was insane with the addition of the "Fire Man" as both Bunji and Fay Ann treated the crowd to hit after hit. Check out some of the pics here. Thanks to Deborah S.
