Ragga Soca king, Bunji Garlin is poised for his greatest worldwide success with “Differentology,” the biggest hit to emerge from 2013’s Caribbean Carnival season.
Already the recipient of multiple International Soca Monarch awards in his native Trinidad, Bunji has not rested on his laurels. He maintains a steady international touring schedule and continues to push the sonic envelope with edgy soca tunes like “Differentology.”
The genre-bending song also caught the attention of Major Lazer, who immediately jumped on the remix. The song (which is featured on Major Lazer’s SoundCloud) is currently the DJ supergroup’s go-to track to open all of their live shows and has helped fuel the buzz to a crossover audience.

(March 23) – Amy Winehouse recorded a lot of music during her Caribbean holiday — but you may not hear any of it.
According to The Sun, the ‘Rehab‘ singer changed her style from soul to reggae, and music executives aren’t happy.
“Amy was very productive during her stay in St Lucia. She wrote a hell of a lot of songs, but the majority of them just aren’t hitting the mark,” a source says.
“She seems to have ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae. Her bosses don’t think it’s a wise move to change her style so sharply and have told her that,” the source adds.
The troubled star’s lyrics are also causing some heads to turn.
“The lyrics are very dark indeed,” an insider tells the British tabloid.
The focus of her music seems to be her split from her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.
“In the past, she’s written frequently about broken hearts and boyfriends, but this time round she’s delving into harrowing terrain,” the insider says.
Whatever Amy does next is crucial to her career.
“If she puts out a record that is in any way half-baked, that could severely damage her long-term prospects, so everyone’s focus at the minute is getting it right, even if that means telling Amy some things she probably won’t want to hear.
Personally, I always thought she had a good voice and wondered what she would sound like over some rubadub riddims.
