Natalie: What was the creative process like for this song?
“I made this music in my living room but, I don’t know if it will sound appealing enough!” (It’s true Luxshop4u had the exclusive of receiving video messages of the process on my phone that included 2 am cooking sessions with coquitos and back to making music!) “Everyone was making music with this substance and that flavor, but not making people dance worldwide you know? I felt like I wanted to bring my own flavor and to make people dance! We had an organic approach, Jorge and I had nothing to start with so, we started it from scratch! We wanted to bring it back to afro music and implement and fuse dancehall and bring it to where reggeaton has become in the here and now! Jamaican, reggaeton, Trinidadian etc, lets fuse it put it in the blender and, see what came out and Whine Up Yuh Bumpah was born out of many things it was needed especially in the latin market everyone is into gangster, trap music from a latin aspect we wanted to bring something else to the table!”
