DOWNLOAD: Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno - Dub Y Guaguanco
Guaguanco is a rhythmic variation of rumba, and by extension a dance, but the term doesn't really have an agreed upon definition, other than that its use means the song in question must contain a certain conga pattern. For "Dub Y Guaguanco," Colombian musician Quantic has—with the piano assistance of Salsa legend Alfredito Linares—integrated it into his dub- and reggae-infused Flowering Inferno project, though that dubbiness isn't exactly obvious. It's more of a guaguanco tune as played by some guys who have probably spent a lot of time hanging out listening to reggae—with a blithe, sweat-through-your-shirt casualness. Grab it below; the album it's from, Dog With A Rope, is out now through Tru Thoughts.
