B-Roca

 

Carifrique.com caught up with B-Roca to ask him a few questions about how he got started in Soca music. Check out the interview below.

 

Who is B-Roca?

B-Roca is a young producer, song writer and artist from the island of Barbados in the West Indies (Caribbean). I’ve been involved in music from around the age of 6 or 7 and haven’t stopped since.

How would you describe your sound?

Hmmm…well my music is a mixture between Reggae/Dancehall, Hip-Hop, R&B, Soca. Basically its a fusion of the different genres which I have been exposed to all my life. My friends and I like to call it ‘Roca’.

‘Roca’! We like that!

Who is your dream Caribbean artist to work with?

Well right now my dream artist to work with as a producer is anyone who can come up with good music because everyone who is someone today was nobody at some point and the “nobody’s” of today deserve a chance to be heard in my opinion. As an artist however I definitely look forward to working with Chronixx sometime soon. I think he is a perfect representation of the future of music Caribbean music. Young and fresh but still true to his roots.

Who have you collaborated with?

Thus far my collaborations have been limited as an artist. I think as a new artist it’s important that you let people hear who you are musically first and foremost and then you branch out with the big collaborations once you have an identity of your own. As a producer on the other hand I have worked with the likes of Shurwayne Winchester and Orlando Octave from Trinidad & Tobago, Darrio and Bugle from Jamaica, and Peter Ram, Inches and loads of Barbadian artists.

What can we expect from you for Barbados/Trinidad Soca 2014 or 2015?

Thus far i think i have grown from year to year and have really established myself as a fore runner when it comes to my contributions to the Soca season particularly in Barbados over the past few years and 2014 and beyond will be no different.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I just love music…I love creating something that i has the power to impact the way people feel when they hear it. The feeling that you as an artist/producer feels when you see the reaction of people when your music comes on is something that is difficult to describe…That’s my real motivation or a big part of it anyways.

What are you most proud of in your career as a producer?

I’m most proud of the fact that my music is travelling all over the world entertaining people.

Where can we listen to your music?

You can listen to my music on Soundcloud at BROCA246

Can we stalk you on Twitter and Facebook?

You can stalk me anywhere! lol. Follow me on Twitter @broca246 or check me out on facebook.com/broca246.

MANABU INOUE from DAYJAM
1993年より東京の夜の街を疾走し続けてきたDAYJAM. DJ集団として、またはクラブカルチャーのパイオニアとして、はたまたインターネットメディアぽかったりしながら独自の世界を築き、思いつくがまま活動を続けるクルーです。
”混ぜ合わせる”ということは、時に音楽に限らず様々な形でグルーヴ感を生み出すきっかけとなります。 融合、そして新たな昇華を繰り返しながらまったく新しいモノになったり意図しない結果を生んだり。MIX&SAMPLINGという手法がHIPHOPのみならず”オモロイモノ”に寄与する効果は計り知れない。その事を具体的に提唱していく現場が、DAYJAMの発信したい事のひとつです。 それはコラージュでありオマージュでありパロディでもありシニカルな何かなのかも知れません。DAYJAMでは、現状のカテゴライズにはこだわらず貪欲にミキシングソースを求め、混ぜたり捏ねたり揉んだり溶かしたり切ったり貼ったりしながら輪郭を形成していきたいと考えています。

DJ MARIMO
HEMO+MOOFIRE率いるWOMAN WI NAMEにてダンスホールレゲエ・セレクタとして活動開始。自らの旅行好きが高じて、最近は中南米やら中近東やらの現地の音々を織り交ぜながらプレイ。自身がオーガナイズする”SUPER DRY!”ほか、都内やら横浜やらで精力的に活動中。2012年、待望のMIX CD ”Thank you! tropical”をリリース。フロアがハネるユレるオドる、カワイくてはげしいプレイに注目!

NORI & MITSU
スティールパン奏者NORI(鉄鍋)とMITSUのユニット。I LOVE TRINI久しぶりの出演です!

Romie
高知県出身のシンガー。2006年、DOMINO-KAT(ドミノキャット)とのコンビネーション「DAY BY DAY」で衝撃デビュー。レゲエ・ソカ・ISLAND POP等のRiddimを自在に操る歌心とメロディーセンスは一度でも聞いたものの耳を捉える。黒人の少年のようなハイトーンボイスも武器に、東京・高知の他、 日本全国のクラブやイベントに出演、レゲエサウンドのMIX CD参加等、増々活動の場を広げている。

TOROCHACHA
2006年 2月、初めてTRINIDAD&TOBAGOへ行き、本場のTRINIDADのCarnivalに出場、
SOCAを体感する。 以後毎年トリニダードへ足を運び、数々の現地のアーティストのバックダンサー、現地のパーティーのショーに出演し、MVなどにも出演。現在CARNIVAL FLAVORの一員としても精力的に活動中!

宜しく御願いします!!!!!!

*Yosakoi (よさこい) is a unique style of dance that originated in Japan. Yosakoi started in the city of Kōchi in 1954, as a modern rendition of Awa Odori, a traditional summer dance. Yosakoi-style dancing has spread throughout much of Japan. The style of dance is highly energetic, combining traditional Japanese dance movements with modern music. The choreographed dances are often performed by large teams. Along with a number of professional yosakoi schools and town dance teams, yosakoi is also a popular event during the sports festivals held by Japanese elementary, junior, and senior high schools. Yosakoi participants include men and women of almost all ages – sometimes within a single team. In the dialect of Tosa province (modern-day Kōchi Prefecture), “yosakoi” means “Come at night.” (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
