Latin You Know! (When Hip Hop Samples Latin Music) - Mixed by DJ DS

As it’s summer here in the UK, I naturally start to listen to more Brazilian & Latin music alongside the normal diet of hip hop, etc. With my father being Portuguese, maybe it’s imprinted in my DNA.

I’ve called it ‘Latin You Know’ for two reasons. The first is letting you know all about the music’s roots & where the breaks come from. The other is that you will hopefully hear tracks that you recognise but didn’t realise that you knew.

I’ve added a track list as usual to give the artists the credit & so that if you’ve not dug in the Brazilian & Latin crates before, then this may give you a nice starting point. I warn you though, it’s a deep, deep rabbit hole but a hugely rewarding one!

If you enjoy this, or any other of my mixes, please leave a comment, share & all that good stuff!
