D-DOT’s Drops New EP: FAYA

FAYA Cover

Yesterday, straight out of London UK, we got to see the release of D-Dots‘ new self released EP entitled “FAYA.” Now, let me be the first to say, this 4 track EP pretty much speaks for itself and that it is indeed fire. If you are a fan of tropical rhythms, bass, tribal drums and Caribbean sounds, then this is definitely worth checking out. My absolute favorite track from this one is “Wiki.” The track boasts a tribal drum circle vibe worthy of the Rainbow family. The Track “Play That,” is a faster paced tribal dancehall feel to it. There is seriously something for everybody on this track. D-Dots has been putting in a lot of work over that past year to find his sound. Over the summer he made a commitment to himself by finishing a 1 track per week. As the summer progressed, Patrick began to find his sound. You might find his music playful & energetic, an accumulation of Carnival music, Dancehall & Baile funk. A true node to the energy of the tropics.

Oh & by the way, he is also giving away a gang of tracks off his SOUNDCLOUD page that is also fire.

Let’s Get Tropical: Start Smooth, And Finish Strong.

LGTxxx
This week Let’s Get Tropical is going to start smooth, and finish strong.

Starting in smoothly, our first composition is a Tango from Intended Immigration; laced with house vibes, and silky soft.  Basically, Your dinner party needs this jam.  You can thank Wooden Hat Records later…

Next is a Champeta number fom the homey K.E.N. (Kinky Electric Noise), that is most definitely a suitable second course.

Have I mentioned that I love Dancehall?  Because check this one out.  It rides the line between smooth and strong so nicely, as it does the line between Zouk and Dancehall.  Thank you, DJ Dac!  Your Tropical Bass is served.

K.  Turn it up to 11 and hold onto something, it’s time for something stronger.  Fourth on deck is an emerging genre called Jungle Terror, that will wake up your babies, and rock that cradle right out of its tree top.  Perrigon killed it!

2 smooth, 1 transition, 2 strong songs to finish.  Sound fair?  Shout out to all the Caballeros out there!
