With a totally tropical taste, my man Sumsin has put socamerenguetek on a blastout – original productions plus, in the mix. Pure party sweat session! Road carnival ride vybz! You can contact an’unexpectacle here to find out about a particular tune or for some ‘pon road party vibes. Listen and download below but here’s what he has to say about this mix of ridiculous rapid riddims:

“Socamerenguetek will keep you for an hour-long, action-packed outing. I got my new vest-top, I got my camel sandals and now it’s time to clip my parts. Prepare a rumboat and ready for go because these are road tunes and you’ll likely get higher.”

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.

Its true what they say, Egyptians were always sooo future. Like next level future. First they gave us the great Triangles and now this. The Telephone song. A full two years before everyone started getting all tropical and congoloided they were already up to their عنق الزجاجة in housey jungle grooves… ok so its no SOLO and you wont find it on the new Congo Fire Ep (which you should buy, or steal) but you get the idea. Ill definitely be dropping it.

Word to the pharaohs.

If your feeling the sound but fancy summin’ a little less old Egyptian bloke on the phone to young children check out the aforementioned Congo Fire EP on Dirty Bird or peep the mighty curb crawlers for the Congoloid (Minimow remix) 

Oooh nyce.
