Soca artists Farmer Nappy (Darryl Henry) has released a new album to coincide with the height of the Trinidad carnival season.

House of Soca is a collection of 12 tracks covering groovy and uptempo soca genres. It includes his popular offerings for 2016, Bambilambambilambilambam and Rental as well as My House, the track that spawned the theme of the album and saw him secure first runner-up position at the 2015 International Groovy Soca Monarch contest.

Other notable tracks are In Trouble featuring Barbadian soca queen Alison Hinds, Loosen de Chain and Doh Remember. Scott Galt and Mikey Hulsmeier of Barbadian production team De Red Boyz were responsible for producing the album along with Trinidadian hit-makers Don Iko of Martian Music and Klase Gonzales of 1st Klase Records.

Farmer Nappy has been in the music industry for more than 30 years and spent much of that time as a member of Machel Montano’s band, but is now a solo artist.

This is his third album released by New York-based record label Fox Fuse. He said he was grateful to all who had helped him “build my house”. He added: “From children to grandparents, my music is for everyone to enjoy, so welcome to my house of soca.”

House Of Soca is available worldwide from all major digital retailers.
