King Kong Disko - Calypso mi Love 2

Over the last few months we have been digging through our vinyl crates, compiling a new heavy
weight 2 hour collectors mix for our “Calypso Mi Love” Series. So here is Part 2!!!
This time we focused on releases reaching from the hilarious Kaiso storytelling of the 1950s and
60s to the proto Soca Carnival Madness of the late 1970s. Most of that stuff is classical and rare
Trinidadian material but we also featured a lot of great tunes from other carribean islands such
as Jamaica or the Bahamas. The second half of the mix is very energetic and uptempo, containing
loads of incredible iron- and brass sections to give you a little idea of how todays carnival sound was
developed over several decades. Nowadays, some of that material is probably better known through
adaptions by modern artists like Machel Montano or Iwer George. Being familiar with those “more
recent” hits, it is even more fun to discover how far the origins of certain anthems actually date back
in carribean music history.
