mp3: PRINCESA i feel so good

mp3: PRINCESA si te vas

while listening to villa diamante’s blends, one voice keeps getting lodged in the tiny canals at the back of my brain – and it’s the voice of valeria goberna, aka princesa. valeria made her name working with reggae / hip hop crew neuva alianza, fronted by “the mighty empress” alika. princesa’s album, ‘algo para decir’ (“something to say”) adopts a similar philosophical path to alika, promoting ‘conscious reggae”, but takes the sounds further by rubbing reggae and hip hop with dancehall and reggaeton. the video below, for the track ‘medio de la calle’ positions valeria at various locations across town, and also drops some ‘galang’-like fluro moments, just for damn good measure. more clips and tunes at murdochspace/princesavale.
