Merchant – Instant Funk [Trinidad and Tobago]

Bub-a-dub-a-dub-a-dub bow boww bowww! It’s Wednesday and we’re sending you all the way to the sunny Caribbean because why the fruit cake not.

This is one hell of a funky jam by Trinidad and Tobago’s prolific songwriter Merchant, otherwise known as Dennis Williams. This 80s soca-disco banger is packed full to the brim with addictive vocals, uplifting brass and tight ass percussion. It’s hard to believe that the magician Merchant couldn’t read or write music. His music is straight from the heart, raw and personal. True expression. Get to know!
