DJs CODO & MARK JAMES feat. FRED VALLE: Alright (Vinyl 7″)

Waxnerds Alright 7Rating: ★★★★★ Every night the monkey has the strangest dreams and last night’s was that Waxnerds DJs Codo & Mark James co-opted Fred Valle to help them deliver epic Latin boom-bap vibes with further top shelf acapella assistance from one Big Daddy Kane.
