With the start of the new year a soca institution comes to an end: the MashUp Show on raggakings.net will be broadcasted for the last time! The legendary show started some time in 2003 and was the very first internet radioshow and podcast for Soca and Caribbean music. Plus the very first show for World Bass / Tropical â€“ years before the genre came into existence.
Tonight on 2st of Jan. there will be a fantastic final show by Marflix, Hendrik and Danny. It will be a best-of show with all the greatest anthems, lots of fiyahwater and surprises.
Please tune-in tonight, join the chat and leave a comment, or browse through the archive of the show, packed with hours and hours of fine music.

Is there any better photo opportunity in the world than Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago? I doubt it! Beautiful people, spectacular costumes, beaming smiles, great atmosphere, sunshine… you name it. No wonder there are thousands of photographers lining the streets of Port of Spain and thankfully many of them share their pictures with all of us in the internet. Here are just two out of many links to nice photo sets on Flickr:
