DJ Negro – Dominican Dem Bow Power mix

While the internet continues to get hyped about moombahton, I have to say I’m a lot more excited about some of the more vocal led dem bow riddims coming out of the Dominican Republic over the last few years. The island seems to have taken the more brutal minimal elements of early reggaeton back in […]

Poirier – Kidnap Riddim (FREE)
