As you know we like to support new music at HDD HQ and we were recently put on to this new gem from UK tropical producer The Rum Baba. The Rum Baba likes to experiment with lots of different sounds from moombahton to dnb but for her debut single she has concentrated on her first love – dancehall. Inspired by Jamaican block parties, dancehall riddims and rum, you can definitely hear that she has been influenced by her Jamaican and British heritage when listening to her double A side 80s Animal/Stop Talk. 80s Animal is our favourite of the A sides as it mixes thats 80s sound with dancehall snippets and percussion and has an almost eerie quality to it in parts. The single drops on November 5th.
