DJ: DJ Nakeye
MIXTAPE: Mixtape La Dame Blanche
La Dame Blanche finally released her highly awaited debut album, Piratas (you can get it here) but for those who aren’t yet convinced and are a bit impatient, she commissioned a petite mixtape featuring snippets of her songs to one of Chile’s best DJs. Lovers of Cuban rap, Spanish rap and even ñu-cumbia will all feel at home in this release full of soulful beats and compelling lyrics.
The mini-mixtape was done by Chile’s DJ Nakeye who currently resides in France like La Dame. Nakeye, in case you didn’t know, was Makiza’s live DJ during their second incarnation (2005-06) right before the French-Chilean Ana Tijoux definitely abandoned the group to embark in a solo career. Maybe Nakeye will give this French-Cuban an equal push into global stardom.
