Machel Montano is commonly referred to as the “King of Soca”, the frantic Trinidadian dance-pop genre. Practically his entire discography (which spans over 30 years!) was the soundtrack of Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival and his live performances are unforgettable. Machel has toured extensively throughout the world on his musical mission. Having released 42 albums, he has been pushing the envelope & revolutionizing soca to increase its global appeal. It is his dream to see soca being enjoyed around the world!
Jamaican dancehall veteran Sean Paul and Machel Montano are two of the greatest pop stars in the Caribbean and both of them have worked with Major Lazer in the past — Sean Paul on “Come On To Me”, Montano on “Sound Bang.” Now they’ve teamed up for the Major Lazer-produced “One Wine”! It’s more or less a fusion of Montano’s soca and Major Lazer’s hammering EDM, but there’s some lovely melody in there with all the BPM overdrive.
Booming from sets all summer, Machel Montano will definitely spread the Island vibes worldwide. Transcending genres, “One Wine” will move any dance floor!
