COLD CUTS: Hello DJ

Each week, a guest on Sloppy Seconds with DJ Mystery Meat adds one new record to our music library. This week, Hello DJ recommends a classic zouk 12-inch.

Kassav’ is a Caribbean band that helped to introduce and popularize Zouk music in the 1980s. A personal hero and good friend of mine, Foreigner, recently played “Zouk La Se Sel Medikaman Nou Ni” at a 4th of July DJ set in Grand Park. During his set, he played a lot of music that reflected his heritage, having moved here from the Caribean.

This record has a lot of history behind it and signifies the trajectory of music being made just slightly outside of the United States. It’s a prevailing sound in global music today, and probably will be forever.
