Hailing from Trinidad, the original home of soca and calypso, it's clear that Surface knows soca music, from its expert horn and drum arrangements, to the band's infectious high spirits. Jumpstart reveals a creative bent that's important for sustaining a long-term soca career. From the clever use of "The Theme From Rocky" in "Paper Song," to the tongue-in-cheek "Chutney Raga Soca Party," this CD provides a diverse mix of soca rhythms.
