Description

Presents Kentje'sz Beatsz on LP

At a party in the Hague in the late '80s, DJ Moortje accidentally dropped a dancehall 12-inch at 45 RPM, causing chaos in the audience. This beautiful mistake resulted in bubbling, a cultural expression of immigrants from the Dutch Antilles and Suriname, and the movement would take these communities by storm in the 1990s. Jamaican exports such as the Fever Pitch and Bam Bam riddims were double and half-timed, with Cutty Ranks on one hand sounding like a prepubescent chipmunk, and on the other like an evil spirit. Bubbling borrowed slave rhythms from Curacao (DJ Moortje's origin), creating a new Caribbean style of music in Europe that ran parallel to London's Jungle scene. The excitement eventually died down in the Netherlands, and Dutch house became the dominant genre in the late 2000s. There was more money to be made and bigger parties to be played when the music didn't consist of pitched-up dancehall, and bubbling became reserved exclusively for the black and Latin crowds, especially.
