The perfect Carvinal tune is here, so get ready to fete like never before! Soca King, Machel Montano has done it again and just in time to kick off Carnival season in his country of Trinidad and Tobago, with the release of his new song “Temperature”. Montano, who has been a trailblazer in the realm of Soca music for over 30 years is always one step ahead of the rest and here’s why.
For this new song, Montano worked with producers Travis World and London Future, the dynamic duo who also worked on the remix of Montano’s hit ‘Like Ah Boss’. This song gives you a sample of what Carnival 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago is going to be like and who better to give it to your than Mr. Fete himself? In an interview with The Fader, Montano spoke about how 2015 was a great year for him.
“2015 was one of my most successful years to date, receiving a Soul Train Award for Best International Performance abroad and a Power Soca Monarch and Road March for my song ‘Like Ah Boss’ back home in Trinidad,” he told The FADER over email. “I’m hearing plenty of Soca vibes in pop songs on mainstream radio so I know the world is opening up to the sounds that we have been crafting for years!”
And it is about for Soca to its stamp onto the mainstream circuit! Check out the lyric video to Temperature and start preparing yourself for Carnival Season.
