Los Angeles-based DJ Raul Campos, highlighted Los Rakas last week on WBUR (Boston) Here & Now DJ Sessions. Tune-in to the show:
I love what Raul (listen to his show on KCRW) said about Raka Rich & Raka Dun’s growth the last few years since he first met them as “Discovery Artist Winners” (and interviewed them!) at 2010’s Latin Alternative Music Conference.
“I remember seeing them 4 years ago actually out at the LAMC, and back then they were very green. And now they are on top of the world…the whole hip-hop and rap sound that’s coming is quite large…“
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Listen to the track “Asi Me Gusta” which Raul highlighted via latest album “El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo” (OUT NOW!) by clicking below:
Finally, is anyone going to Reggae on the River this year? Los Rakas plays tomorrow! Definitely has been on my #bucketlist to see the guys on the ROR line-up. Jimmy Cliff, Gyptian, Alpha Blondy, Michael Rose and so many great reggae living legends and contemporary artists are on this bill for the 30th Anniversary (!!!) of this world-renowned reggae fest in Northern California. Check out all of Los Rakas future tourdates. Very exciting news about some tours coming soon: www.losrakas.com/events
