Download A Red Hot Lord Shorty Track From Sofrito

The guys in Sofrito (Hugo Mendez & Frankie Francis) never fail to serve up the kind of tracks that immediately excite everyone from dusty-fingered connoisseurs to listeners with little exposure to Caribbean music. Such is the case with “Vibration’s Groove,” from their forthcoming International Soundclash collection. Soca mainstay Lord Shorty (who also received the re-edit treatment on last year’s 12″ single) breaks down the building blocks of the nascent hybrid of soul and calypso, creating a dancefloor bomb that also functions as a perfect entry point to the genre. Download the track below. Sofrito’s International Soundclash comes out July 24th.
