VF Live: Anthony Joseph



Soulful calypso and soca records from Trinidad.

In VF Live, our favourite collectors take you inside their homes, record shops, and studios, for intimate mixes and performances.

Poet, musician and academic Anthony Joseph graces the decks amidst his beautiful HQ set-up, for his first VF Live show:

“This set features 100 percent soulful calypso and soca vibes direct from Trinidad, the kinda things you’d hear at a house party in Trinidad – during the ’80s, when our music was steeped in the energy of soul and carried a message of revolutionary fervour forever forward.

The sets include gems by Lord Shorty, Shadow, Ella Andall and Lord Nelson. Sweet soca music, never refuse it!”
