New Soca Must Run! This US Based Artist is De Soca Postman and He’s Got A Delivery.

The US has quickly become the Carnival capital of the world, the pandemic having forced the relocation of many of the Caribbean’s Soca artistes, but even before that there were Soca artistes like De Postman who represented hard for the genre.


His real name is Sherwin Rogers, and he’s been living in the US for over 30 years. Despite taking up residence overseas, De Postman has remained a patriot of his homeland, Trinidad and Tobago. Since the late 90s, he’s been knocking on the doors of radio stations, delivering Soca tracks religiously. Over 50 singles to his credit, Rogers who’s dubbed, ‘The Coast to Coast man,’ says songs like ‘Riot,’ which kick started his career, and others like, ‘Fetterholic’ and ‘Spread Out,’ are just a sample of the music he’s worked on and effectively released for Soca lovers. Now, following a hiatus that saw Rogers become a certified plumber in the US, and even following the release of a song called, ‘Yes Everybody Matters’ in the summer of 2020, he has released a new single with hopes of making further inroads toward 2022.


The new single, “Party Nice,” came to Rogers after he’d secured a beat by Rapid Beats out of St Lucia. “I’d been on a job and while working, I got the melody for the beat. It definitely had a vibe and I was excited to lay it down in studio,” he said. His time away from music allowed the artiste to do a lot of self-introspection, and with that has come a greater awareness of his calling – his love for music.

‘Party Nice’ was released on November 5th, complete with a video. “I believe this song has the potential to be a break through hit; I think it’s a song to watch,” he said excitedly. Happy to be back at music, De Postman is reveling in his re-established tie to the Caribbean music industry. “My heart has never left Soca. I love the music and the people, the culture and the energy of it all. I am proud to contribute, even as I live in the US,” he said.

Sistaron’s Trailblazing. Artist’s New Hit Single, ‘Fwd’, Is All That!

Published

Rhonda Knights is the undisputed female HipHop queen of Trinidad and Tobago and this incontestable fact facilitated her rise to acclaim in the 90’s in Trinidad and Tobago, but she’s far from done. As fierce as she’s ever been, Sistaron, as she’s popularly known, now delivers another hit single, this time with melody that’s intrinsically Soca. 
Even amid pandemic restrictions, Sistaron remained focused, bent on delivering her unique sound, and that she has. She’s made a point of blending her country’s sweet, Soca melody with a few lines that bring home the head- bopping fire she’s well known for. ‘Fwd’ is a lyrically sound piece of work that’s uplifted with the production skill of none other than producer, LL Cool Blaze, with mastering by Keron ‘Sherrif’ Thompson. Peter ‘Wildfire’ Noel is credited with vocal co-production, building on their relationship from her previous release, ‘Waiting for You.’

When she re-emerged onto the Caribbean music circuit two years ago, Sistaron received a warm welcome. Her single, ‘Look Ting Now’ was enough to prove that she was prepared to leave a lasting impression. Now, with a thirst to deliver music that fans and people from all walks of life can relate to, dance and sing along to, the former Keskidee Karavan hit maker, elevates with ‘Fwd.’ 

“It’s a track that anyone can relate to – men and women,” she explained, adding that this particular single isn’t being marketed specifically to the carnival season. “A lot of the artistes have changed that mindset of creating music with lyrics specific to carnival. The pandemic showed many of us what needed to change. We’re at a crossroads where we simply want to release music for consistency and we don’t want to be pressed for a certain time period,” she said. The Miami based artist highlighted the chaos often caused when music is released specifically for the Carnival season, with artistes all clamoring for radio airplay. “This situation may prove beneficial to the industry, since now we can all focus on delivering music anytime, irrespective of a festival per say.”

Still, the carnival lover maintains hope that Trinidad and Tobago will see brighter days ahead. “Many of us out here in the US are concerned because we know the strain the economy back home, is under. We know what our contribution annually, means to the economy,” she said, highlighting that no matter what, Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival is essential. 

Equipped with her individual style and flair, Sistaron says it’s never easy to reinvent oneself and keep going, and for that, she’s immensely satisfied with her determination. “I’m shocking myself all the time,” she said, laughing at the moments she often finds herself pondering the fact that she wrote the music she just happens to be singing. “Someone once told me that I should keep adjusting my crown, because they’re watching, and that fueled me to keep going,” she admitted, adding, “reinventing myself and producing good stuff is giving me my own vibe right now.”

She tells up and coming creatives to avoid placing boundaries on themselves, saying that it’s good to broaden their perspective so they can see a wider spectrum of all that they can be. Her new single is testimony to that mindset- the artist explaining that it all came together as it needed to, after multiple random chats with friends and even a chance encounter with an Afro Beats mixtape she’d heard almost two years before. “This song is made up of a little of everything, meshed perfectly to deliver a huge something that’s not only relatable, but honest and real,” she said.

Bunji, Fay Ann Go Hard With New Soca Rave Sound.

As talk of Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival 2022 maintains some momentum with stakeholders weighing in on the practicality of a festival being hosted, soca artistes like Fay Ann Lyons and her husband, Bunji Garlin, are hard at work. The duo, still overseas, having spent most of the summer in the US, have unleashed a brand new track, collaboratively done and totally out of the box. This morning, Bunji declined to comment on the new single or anything else for that matter, telling us that he preferred to focus on releasing good music for the people at this present time.

The new single is a crossover into the mainstream ‘rave’ genre that is huge in places like Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and New York. Blending the traditional hyped sound of Soca music with the Rave element, breeds a flavour that they both deliver comfortably on. In 2015, Lyons-Alvarez experimented with the sound when she unleashed the powerful, ‘Raze’- a tune that proved to be a truly epic fetter’s anthem. Now, fast forward to 2021, as the world anticipates a revival of energy to life, she comes hard again, this time with her husband, in a song they’ve called, ‘What You See.’

The new single was collaboratively written by both artistes and produced by St. Lucia’s, Lashley ‘Motto’ Winter and Yannick Plante. The track sits on the Ibiza Riddim, which also features Motto and St. Vincent’s Skinny Fabulous.
