How is it possible to get the sounds of Caribbean Haiti, to fuse with Miami cool and futuristic twist? Easy, you get Miami resident Cris Cab on Pharrell’s I Am Other label and then you call on Wyclef to place his stamp of approval and POW! You haveÂ Echo Boom, Cris Cab’s second project.
This is exactly what The Stage, in Miami’s design district had to offer on Thursday, February 2nd during YouTube sensation Cris Cab release party for his new mixtape Echo Boom. I think saying that Cab has talent is an understatement, seriously who else can pull Wyclef out of musical retirement to produce and also go on tour… WITH A MIXTAPE!!!
Cab, is a fan favorite and he puts on a great show. Accompanied by his band, the night was quite memorable with surprise guest, Wyclef coming by to knock out ‘Rihanna’s Gun,’ making sure to give RiRi a shoutout enticing her for a remix on the already favored song! That should be interesting. Echo Boom has more of a reggae vibe than Foreword, did but still holds true to his acoustic sound. Cab shows more range here jumping from dubstep, to reggae and back again.
