Boomkat Product Review:
Party-ready mixtape crammed with reggaeton edits of ‘90s dance-pop, grime and modern rap cuts for Low Jack’s Editions Gravats. Edition of 100, don't snooze.
Catching the label at its most frivolous and practically reeking of Kalimotxo, King Doudou’s ‘Yin-Yang Street Mix’ follows from his ‘Novinha/Tremendo Bumbum’ 12” last year with a highly compatible selection primed for sozzled, dutty perreos.
Expect to find licks from the likes of Eiffel 65, Faithless, Culture Beat, 666 and Alice Deejay woven with kinky, hip-ticking dembow rhythms and rap from Lil Pump, Bad Gyal, La Zowi and stacks of classic rave stabs in a restless flow that won’t let the party down.
The A-side is titled ‘Angels’ and gets the juices going at a slightly slower slant with all your favourites/most hated ‘90s numbers in there somewhere, before the B-side’s ‘Demonico’ selection steps the pace and the rowdiness up to a peak, including that reggaeton version of ‘Insomnia’ you were always waiting for.
