Sé agradecido. Be thankful. That’s what we Americans did this month (some of us New Yorkers just extra thankful to be alive) and with that being said, thank goodness for drums. I got beats from Brazil, Africa, Latin America, and the US. And just to make sure it knocks properly, I’m going extra heavy with the bongos this time around. Setting it off in Jamaica, we go through some classic rocksteady, take a detour with Major Lazer then some essential UK new wave from The Clash and The Specials. From there we get into some funk, cumbia, latin, Afrobeat, disco. In other words, we wake the town… So don’t sleep.
