The remix is produced by hot American producers Major Lazer whose collaborations with Jamaican artistes Vybz Kartel (on Pon Di Floor), Busy Signal (Watch Out Fi Dis) and Johnny Osbourne (Jah Nuh Partial) have fared well in the United States.
With Major Lazer on a winning streak, Garlin believes “Differentology” is likely to expand his base beyond the Eastern Caribbean and West Indian communities in the US.
The original version of Differentology was produced by Keron ‘Sheriff Mumbles’ Thompson, one of Trinidad’s emerging producers. It was a hit at last year’s Trinidad Carnival and solidified Garlin’s stocks as soca’s rising star.
Major Lazer approached him to do the Differentology remix early this year. It has done well, with even Britain’s Guardian newspaper hailing it as “2013’s essential summer jam”.
Bunji Garlin, whose fifth album is due out in early 2014 on VP Records, is hoping Differentology will have similar success as his predecessors from the Eastern Caribbean.
