"We're happy and proud about the #1 debut this year" said Edwin Howell, A&R Director for VP Records. "Soca Gold CD sales have been very steady over the past few years and this year we took a big jump on digital.
Soca is a movement and this music is getting bigger," he continues. This year's collection opens with the self-proclaimed Viking of Soca Bunji Garlin's latest single "Carnival Tabanca" then Farmer Nappy's groovy soca tune "Big People Party" that came in second for Road March at this year's Trinidad & Tobago Carnival competition.
The collection also features the body-moving anthem "Done D Party" from Fay-Ann Lyons and party starters like "Shake Dat" by Sass feat. Jojo and "Monster Winer" by Kerwin Du Bois & Lil Rick. Soca Gold 2014 also contains a DVD filled with electrifying live performances from this year's Trinidad & Tobago Carnival plus nine steamy soca music videos from the collection.
