DJ and producer Oh Snap!! from Baltimore knows how to make people dance. And he knows how to make people laugh. And he knows what is hot in the clubs around the world as well as the music blog scene. Thank God this young man found Soca, or rather Soca found him! His talents just blend perfectly with the sounds of the Caribbean: club beats meet steel drums, funny lyrics meet the traditions of humourous commentary as to be found even in the earliest Calypsos, jumping around meets waving rags.
In the title track of his brand new Soca EP â€žWhite Breadâ€œ he is telling us about being the only white guy at a fete in Trinidad – isn’t that just the perfect tune to be released on Faluma, the Caribbean music label run by a bunch of Germans…
Other tracks deal with the effects of too much rum at parties on choosing a partner for the night , or more or less lovely ladies or are just making you want to party wildly.
Mashing up underground club music with Caribbean elements became quite fashionable these days, but no one ever did that with that much good, zesty, but with a twinkle in his eye kind of humour like Oh Snap!!. We are proud and happy to have his first Soca EP on our label.
