There are about seven months til Trini Carnival 2010, and two months before the gigantor Carnival parade takes over Brooklyn, so that gives you enough time to absorb any songs you might not recognize on this super-comprehensive mix of 55 summer soca tracks dropped over the past year from every island in the Caribbean. G13 Sound International, aka Double L & LP, were pretty thorough in putting this together, spanning perennial faves like Machel Montano and Destra Garcia to slightly less renowned but equally terrific performers like Zoelah. (Full tracklist here.) This mixtape is the most seasonally appropriate thing we've heard since maybe Saturday at least, let's get excited!
