Bunji Garlin kicks into high gear this week to rev up for his new album Differentology, available August 12, 2014 on RCA and VP Records. The Trinidadian soca star teams up with A$AP Ferg on the album’s latest single Truck On D Road (Remix), produced by Toronto’s Doc and Jes. Funkmaster Flex exclusively premiered the trap remix on Hot 97 and InFlexWeTrust.
Garlin knew the Ferg would be the perfect fit for the track. “I met Ferg in Trinidad when he came for Carnival 2014 and like that we just clicked. We started talking to each other on all sorts of music topics like we’ve known each other for years, so when I sent “Truck On The Road” to remix for the different markets, it was just a breeze. He flipped into Trini lingo. Seeing that he has some roots here, he wanted to fit into the vibe of it,” he explains.
The remix appears on Garlin’s much anticipated album Differentology, which will be his first full-length release since 2007’s Global and follows his recently released digital-only EP Carnival Tabanca. On the new 13-track set, Garlin effortlessly blends EDM, hip hop and dancehall with soca.
In support of the new album, he will also be hitting the road throughout the summer with dates on Mad Decent’s Block Party tour and around NYC’s Labor Day festivities (including Hot 97’s On Da Reggae Tip).
