Why do we like this?

If this the below is what I can expect to hear by visiting Salento, you can consider me on my way to the "Jamaica of Italy." Shouts to Populous for making one of the most unique records I'll hear all year.

"This track features a single field recording (captured with a smartphone) of a family of Casamance playing Kora and drums. I chose to sample it because those cyclic melodies held a soft magic: a reminder of a dance-hall on the beach on a full moon night and that special light gleaming on the sand and the ocean.

I live in Salento, a place usually defined as the Jamaica of Italy, mostly because during the 90s dance-hall beach parties were very popular here and I can say I grew up going to those “illegal” gatherings, so I was delighted to re-create that atmosphere with a different take rather than using the original reggae and dance stylistic elements, fusing that field recording into my own idea of rhythm."
