India Loves Dembow mix from The Incredible Kid

For years now India has been cranking out tracks showing the clear influence of the Dembow riddim and all its offshoots. The Punjabi scene has been the most impacted, but this mix also includes various Dembow-influenced rap, R&B and moombahton efforts in Hindi as well. (If you know of any Dembow tracks in Tamil, Telugu, etc., please send my way.) You’ll notice how much some of the songs sound like Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” whose filmed-in-India video is one of the biggest influencers of the trend. In fact, I could have made a whole mix of just songs aping “Lean On.” The songs on this mix only represent a fraction of the scene. I had originally selected over 100 songs for this mix, so this could easily be volume 1 of a long series.
