Party jams from Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and St. Vincent.
Soundway is releasing a new compilation of dance music from the Caribbean called Body Beat: Soca-Dub and Electronic Calypso (1979-98), this October.
Body Beat: Soca-Dub and Electronic Calypso (1979-98) collects 17-tracks on triple vinyl, described by the label as “obscure soca B-side versions, dubs, instrumentals and edits as well as vocal tracks influenced by disco, boogie, house-music, soul and the more conscious lyrics of roots reggae.”
Its music was compiled by Soundway Records label founder Miles Cleret and DJ/collector Jeremy Spellacey.
Body Beat follows Esa Presents Amanda: Music To The People on the label earlier this year.
