This moody downtempo tune shows the influence of Latin styles and Jamaican reggae in early 1970's Trinidadian music culture. The theme is said to be derived from Venzuela and was adapted by rapper 50 Cent for his massive smash "P.I.M.P.". Chief Mocambo engineer Steven "Def Stef" Tantrum did a wonderful job in restoring the old 8-track tape and mixing the track.

Ah, fall: the leaves are changing colors and falling lazily to the earth, the darkness of early evening nips at the heels of a blustery afternoon, the deep exhalations of our breath become visible in bleary, midmorning dazes.
Lovingly, as always, we are happy to share with you another mix of Radiophonic Oddities and Dusty Nuggets, deeply mined from the crates for your aural pleasure. As usual, the music is admittedly a veritable smorgasboard reflecting wildly eclectic records, to say the least.
So hit this here DOWNLOAD button, and hey....consider yourself informed. (And entertained.)
Big ups to DJ Clarence Duffy for assistance.
