From elsewhere in the Caribbean, in Trinidad, you can hear the influence of lates disco on this enigmatic, vibed-out calypso-disco track. Stephen Encinasa Trinidadian producer, used steelpan to emulate a kind of Giorgio Morodor arpeggiator sound in combination with actual synthssubmerging the traditional calypso instrument in delay and reverb, and transforming its sound from celebratory to mystical.
