2012 release. Soundway presents a slice of raw Trinidad carnival roots with a progressive twist, from one of the island's most forward-thinking musical minds. Highlife-techno pioneer DrumTalk morphs it into a dark electro-tropical groove. Lancelot Layne was one of the most-respected of Trinidad's late 20th-century musicians and the originator of rapso -- a fusion of Trinidadian soca and American hip-hop that grew out of the unrest of the 1970s. Layne's early recordings mixed social commentary with calypso, Africanism and an upfront lyrical style. Includes mp3 download.
