1001 posts!

Wow, that last one was my thousand post. This blog was started in 2007 under the name; Soca Sverige (Soca Sweden) on Tuesday, July 3, 2007.

Here is the first post in Swedish, called 'de revoltion with a cause'

Here is it translated into English: (by google translate)
welcome to soundsystem's soca blog. This blog is an extension of which will be a comprehensive site for everything related to soca to do in Sweden.
The blog will be in Swedish for the most part and the website will be in English.

You all may not know what soca is, which is not directly sense since it is not received much exposure in Europe (yet). Soca is a musical style from the West Indies. When hearing the Caribbean, most people think immediately of reggea and dancehall, but this is a bit wrong. Reggae and dancehall are all over the Caribbean, yes, but it is Jamaica that in a way has exclusive rights to record sales and more.

The Caribbean is so much more than Jamaica and reggae. Most of the smaller islands of Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is the SOCAn as much closest to their hearts. This especially in the islands' festivals and carnival.

Soca is actually carnival music, but mainly the party and dance music."

I hope there will be 1000 more posts and more after that, what u want to see more of? Use the feedbox or send a mail, see it in the right bar...
