My man MPC from Digitaldubs Sound System just dropped MPC’s the Baile – Dancehall Mixtape. With 17 different MCs riding 18 different riddims, it runs from digital permutations of the tamborzão mashed with the coolie dance riddim to dubbed out collisions of capleton and sizzla with original funk carioca-dub bases such as the tambozão rock and curimba riddims, all tweaked and mixed with MPC at the controls. É Foda!
It’s been too long here without music……I’ve been diggint through the stack of CDs I bought in Guyana from sound carts like the one above in Georgetown and I’ve come up with a few interesting tracks. From very acoustic Indian to Caribbean Indian electronic acoustic to full on electronic……a selection from Chutney Dancehall Hits 2005 Volume 3.
Dheeray Dheeray by Lil Man.
Mortor Mortor (Remix) by Rikki Jai with Machal Montan.
And, lastly, I’m sure his woman just melted when she heard this, fell into his arms and then wined all night for his pleasure…….Square Key by Kerry Ramgobin.
