Esclav – Go Ghetta 2010
While musically it’s a totally different world than Go Go, the way bouyon bands emulate hip-hop isn’t far off. The live synths and drum machines speaking the language of a cooped up producer dragged from his solidarity and into Carnival. This almost isn’t even a cover, but often is the case that the hook is the only thing borrowed leaving the empty space open for discussion more closely related to the Caribbean. It’s like Soca for the more outdoorsy types.
