Wilson Legendre - Soca Music (Limited 10", Out There Records, 2013)
Originally released on seven inch in 1979 on Semp Records, the deeply funky cosmic afro Caribbean disco of Wilson Legendre's 'Soca Music' gets reissued by Belgium label Out There Records. After the cosmic island afro disco of African 1980 released the previous year (played by Anthony Joseph in his september 2011 mix), this is another gem to hunt, the kind of perfect thing for a 'Cosmic Tropical Disco' selection, on a hand-painted, numbered 10 inch limited to 350 copies only! On the b-side, a rare piece of parang, traditional Trinidian music perfomed around christmas. This one's totally frantic at 140 bpm, while soundtrack-ish like sped-up Tarantino music.
Mesmerizing psychedelic music.

Wilson Le Gendre - "Soca Music" - unique psychedelic Trinidad disco, produced by Carl "Beaver" Henderson the man who later became responsible for producing the first real soca records.
La Familia Sen - "Angelo" - hailing from Trinidad, the genre is called Parang, it is a music that is made around Christmas only. This record is a particularly HEAVY 140 bpm affair with loud claves, frantic driving mariachi guitars and the melancholic voices of the Sen family wondering about their lost brother/son.
