Seventeen year old producer Ghetto Vanessa has been turning heads with a series of remixes and bootlegs ever since his band Banda Westfalica introduced him to a wider public. For his awaited solo debut on Zef Jam he created three dope tunes blending dancehall, hip hop and club.
"Dachi Puchi" features Diamanta of Dutch-Caribbean band KiT, who sings the neo-dancehall anthem in Papiamento. The rare language from the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao mixes up African tongues with Portuguese, English, Dutch and several other influences. "Dachi Puchi" means "bow tie" in Papiamento and is figurative speech for the strangling grip of the daily struggle. So lose your tie, catch a breath and give yourself up to Dachi Puchi!
"Bounce it to the Limit" aims straight at the dance floor with super low 808 kicks, a squeeky vocal loop and bouncy trap in turns with Bmore beats. Loud, proud and shure to make the floor go bananas.
"Run Tings" finally hooks up a dready rasta vocal with laid back beats, until a devastating Dutch hardcore beat kicks in and blasts the pain away.
