Dutty Artz is very pleased to announce the debut official release from Dominican underground superstar Rita Indiana. For those unfamiliar with Rita’s vibe download her La Hora De Volver here, courtesy of Remezcla. Perez Hilton is a fan saying: “Super caliente! We are obsessed with it – and HER!!!!!!!”
Her Dutty Artz single features two songs. One, called ‘No Ta Llevando El Diablo’ (translated as ‘The Devil is Taking Us Away’) is Rita backed by her band Los Misterios. It’s an angry blast of punk mambo with Rita singing about grannies smoking crack over distorted guitars, guira and 808 boom added by Shadetek and Rupture. The second track ‘Los Poderes’ is Rita solo over Shadetek and Rupture’s rework of a Bannana Clipz riddim (Bannana Clipz is Dutty Artz own Chief Boima and Bersa Discos Oro 11). Over a mix of digital and live hand-drumming contributed by Ivory Nunez playing an interpretation of Dominican Palo over Bannana Clipz 4×4 beat Rita sings a haunting tropical voodoo ballad.
The release will be available July 6th in all fine digital retailers including iTunes, Juno, Amazon and Boomkat. In the meantime, soak your eyes in these:
