playdoh

Following the Soca post, I reflected on my mission to La Republica Dominicana a couple of years ago. Two things still perplex me. Firstly, whether or not the bar in Cabarete that used mannequin booty as drink stands, hactually at one time used waitress booty – probably more rumour than truth, but believable rumour. Secondly, why mambo de calle, or speed merengue never blew up as reggaeton (the other, less jokes, vibe pon Dominican road and beach) did. The second of those intrigues is about to change this summer, I reckon.

My man Sumsins has been feeling the rays coming with a merengue inspired riddim or two.

The rinsing blog generationbass has also been feeling it with this superb mix – Omega’s bigboutya but kazsh vocals make a wonderful contrast with the supersonic riddims

Also, here’s a zip of a few collected riddims – they be faster than the camera that caught that the above execution of playdoh. Get shakin.
