A fresh, new musical groove out of New York City, starts with a saxophone sample from the 1970’s Long Island group, Lafayette Afro Rock Band and their song "Darkest Light." It’s been sampled a lot of the years and now Texas-based DJ and producer El Dusty, along with some of his collaborators have worked the "Darkest Light" sample into a cumbia track called "Sax Riddim." It takes a global village — and some time — to brew a sound like this.
