In two weeks we were knocking on the doors of Soca Rebels. We had found the first Rapsoul band, who was versed in the art of Kaiso and steelpan music. The brothers Lars and Mats Hansson and their partner Björn Hansson were the new beginning of a sound never been heard before, and that sound was Rapsoul. After several sessions together, we had produced our first CD – The Awakening #1“.
