Masalacism Records Presents Mr. OK
Finally got a chance to check out Montreal via Haiti rapper, Mr. Ok. He arrives at BBC with a new EP, Me Mwen (Here I Am), that has a fresh, danceable sound that draws influences from the traditional music of Haiti (Kompa) as well as rap and electronica. The new EP includes tracks produced by Haitian producer Benkele and Montreal producer Freeworm as well as a remix from California’s Chief Boima (Dutty Artz) who adds a touch of Caribbean zouk to the blend.
The first single from the EP, “Yaya (ft. Larose)” was produced by Freeworm, whom Mr. Ok met at a fundraiser for Haiti following the devastating earthquake early 2010. The track has a fresh sound that draws heavily on dub and electronica, but also adds this Caribbean vibe that sets it apart from the rest– This one is meant for the dance halls.
