Soundway reissue the massively in-demand Soca cover-version of Sade's classic cut "Sweetest Taboo" by Caribbean band Rebles from 1986. In the late '80s, as electronic music permeated popular culture, Rebles helped define the soca genre outside of the Caribbean. Also known as D' Rebel's Band and led by St Vincentian band-leader and trombonist Denniston Young, the group were the 1980s house band for Caribbean label, Strakers Records, based in Brooklyn, New York. Strakers released hundreds of Calypso and Soca releases over a thirty year period from 1970 to 2000. This 12" paves the way for a Soca compilation on Soundway.
