Aristole thought thunder was the sound of clashing clouds, now people think it’s fast lightning. this thunder is close. roll and clap.

thanks for using that awesome picture! speedy too!

interesting song by hines. it sounds pretty undeniably influenced by reggaeton. not just the tempo, but the pattern and timbre of the drums too. i think they even switch up the snares at regular intervals. wouldn’t be surprised to learn that luny tunes produced this one.

that shout of “señorita” seems suggestive, too. wonder if this could get some play on la calle?

thanks – I definitely know what you mean about the reggaeton break/feel…

it turns out it was produced by salaam remi (again) – probably should have mentioned that in the post.

the mp3 came off this compilation for radio stations which showcases the biggest tunes, by month, from a particular region – it sits next to one drop and reggaeton so I think its safe to assume its getting airplay all over (or at least is pitched as a caribbean/crossover tune intended to get airplay all over)
