Tropical Takeover: Que Bajo Dubplate Mix


Que Bajo Sound lick shots and leave mothers in mourning. Dark clouds are gathering and looks like storming. Another sound boy dead, no more performing.

One year ago today, Que Bajo took the stage at RBMA Culture Clash with some serious competition against us: Just Blaze, Federation Sound and last minute upsetters, Trouble and Bass. Tonight, RBMA is bringing together all 4 Corners of the Clash for a friendly reunion in Brooklyn. Its not a rematch just back to back fun, but since tickets are sold out and its supposed to be a friendly event we figured what better time than now to send this out…

Tropical Takeover, is a 12 minute mega-mix of exclusive Que Bajo dubplates from Busy Signal, Popcaan, Warrior Queen, Chingo Bling and Jahdan Blakkamoore and Li Saumet from Bomba Estereo:

To put into context what the clash meant for me, you guys should know that I met Matt Shadetek and DJ /Rupture when they attended a soundclash event I was hosting here in New York. We had heavy bass champs like Dub War come thru and drop strictly vinyl dubs in all genres.

I learned some things back then and became a huge fan of cutting burial dubs that talk shit about the crew that you’re playing against. Its war-mongering. Its time-sensitive. But the look on a DJ’s face when they hear a well-known artist talking shit about them on a record…. priceless. Fool’s Gold Records was actually supposed to be one of the crews we were up against but dropped out unexpectedly just a few days before the clash. I don’t know what happened but until I hear the explanation from the homie Nick Catchdubs, I’m just gonna believe they punked out and left us stuck with diss tracks for them and the other crews that we’ve never played anywhere… until now.
