Fair Nick Stars: “Arrete Mal Parlé”
I have been enjoying Sofrito’s Tropical Discotheque mixtape (1/18 Strut) for some time now, and now I am happy to finally be able to drop a free mp3 from the venerable mix. Fair Nick Stars’ “Arrete Mal Parle” is just one of the Carribean-tinged deep cuts selected by DJ’s Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis as well as the Mighty Crime Minister, Sofrito for the record. The album itself contains elements of cumbia, jazz, salsa, calypso and a host of other world beats. You can check it out for yourself when it comes out tomorrow on Strut Records.
