King Kong Disko - Calypso Mi Love

Calypso. A genre that stands for vibes and witty Lyrics like no other.

After having worked in a Caribbean record store for almost a decade and several trips to Trinidad I
piled up quite a lot of excellent Calypso records over the years. So finally here’s a massive King Kong
Disko 2 hour vinyl mix with lots of our favorites. Big time classics and lots of rare singles that I never
heard anyone else play anywhere, reaching from the late 50s to the 80s. Three decades full of lyrical
wit and ambiguity. Stories about what can happen to you when you make out on a cemetery, singers
that get kidnapped by aliens, right in the middle of carnival and very weird explanations why Chinese
people never die!!! I also included a little pan special for those of you who are into the steel drum
This time, we decided not to do too much of mixing here, because I just know that my friends among
Trinidad’s senior citizens wouldn’t really want me to do that. So for now, That’s Played Out!

Carnival culture to di Maxx! Enjoy.
