La Favela and DJ Buddha are
releasing a bold new mixtape entitled "Caribbean
Connection" featuring 52 exclusive songs from Tego
Calderon, Daddy Yankee, Vybz Kartel, Pitbull, T.O.K,
Yandel, Elephant Man, Voltio, Sean Paul, with guest
appearances by Elephant Man, FunkMaster Flex and many
"This mixtape is on fire" stated DJ Buddha while on stage at
the sold out Hot.97 'On Da Reggae Tip' concert Labor Day
weekend in NYC where T.O.K was on tour promoting their album.
"I've gotten so much support from the top names in dancehall
reggae & reggaeton music for this project and we can't thank
them enough. I think people will be amazed at how well this
tape flows considering the reggae & reggaeton blend of musical
styles as well as the different languages on it
We're bridging the gap between West Indian and Latino cultures
in the Caribbean islands."
LaFavela's national street team will use the Caribbean
Connection mixtape to boost the relationship between different
ethnic cultures from the Caribbean. The goal of the
compilation is also to raise awareness among the youth and
consumers here in the U.S. that reggae & reggaeton are part of
American urban culture as well, instilling pride and
acceptance of our own music.
From the age of 9, DJ Buddha earned his radio license and it's
been nothing but records and music ever since. The Boston
based, Dominican-born DJ focuses on reggae, reggaeton and hip
hop. As T.O.K.'s official road DJ, Buddha has been mashing up
events like Heineken House Party, Springfest, Hot 97 Summer
Jam and more. The mixtape DJ has also appeared on shows such
as Mun2's "The Roof."
