Calypso. A genre that stands for vibes and witty Lyrics like no other.
After having worked in a Caribbean record store for almost a decade and several trips to Trinidad I piled up quite a lot of excellent Calypso records over the years. So finally here’s a massive King Kong Disko 2 hour vinyl mix with lots of our favorites. Big time classics and lots of rare singles that I never heard anyone else play anywhere, reaching from the late 50s to the 80s.
Three decades full of lyrical wit and ambiguity. Stories about what can happen to you when you make out on a cemetery, singers that get kidnapped by aliens, right in the middle of carnival and very weird explanations why Chinese people never die!!! I also included a little pan special for those of you who are into the steel drum thing.
This time, we decided not to do too much of mixing here, because I just know that my friends among Trinidad’s senior citizens wouldn’t really want me to do that. So for now, That’s Played Out!
