Experimental Music from the Ivory Coast


DJ Caloudji – Sentiment Moko (from All Star Coupe Decale Mania 2009)

My favorite Coupe Decale track for sure. Who used this in a mix? Radioclit? Almost comes off as a sound collage. Both the guitars and vocals alternate between scratchy vinyl samples and original sounding. A really big step away from Kuduro, which always sounds so grim. Nothing wrong with that but I got to admit that stuff scares me sometimes.

The video for this track is great too.

On an unrelated note, why do all Zouk-Love songs have rain sounds in them?
