Soca’s young generation aims at taking their music global

Through all of the headaches, setbacks and at one point I doubted this project would even drop but after missing the deadline 4 times and replacing 2 productions last minute,  I’m overjoyed to announce that Maloney story EP has finally been released.

Words written by Soca artiste, Preedy; on his excitement by dropping his EP, Maloney Story yesterday.

Growing up in Maloney Gardens, an area dubbed a crime hot spot in East Trinidad, Preedy said  folks within his area expected so little of him, but he was determined to prove his haters wrong and he did so through his music and the love he has for the art form.

You can download the Maloney Story on all streaming platforms and on iTunes for $1.29USD.

Meanwhile Erphaan Alves, who started #socaglobal and #socanoseasons is set launch to his website today Thursday 19 September. will feature his years of work, collaborations, digital call cards, clothing and more.

The grand launch will take place at Buzz Bar located at One Woodbrook Place in Port-of-Spain.

Erphaan just a few days ago posed a good question to his followers on Twitter asking “Is Soca music Global or nah?” And the responses were interesting.

Some saying yes, while others said it isn’t fully respected at home here in T&T first so how can it be truly accepted and respected internationally.

What are your thoughts?
