Congorock Teams With Sean Paul, Announces 2012 North American Tour
Let me see you dutty wine to the bassline, girl.
Bitches all over the world are going to drop it low when Italy's massive electro monster Congorock drops his new track with dancehall superstar Sean Paul at the end of September.
The track called "Bless Di Nation" will coincide with a sleek music video and North American tour (including a Miami stop at Mansion on Friday, October 19) before the producer finishes up as an opening act for fellow famous Italian Benny Benassi.
The collaboration between the electro monster behind the hit "Babylon" and the fast-speaking island boy might seem as strange. But the mix of Congorock's hard beats with Sean Paul's Kingston flavor might be just what the dance floor needs.

A press release from Congorock's team promises the track will perfectly mix the DJ's expertise for arrangement and next-level sound with the singer's reggae skills, adding, "Think Major Lazer with a triple-shot of espresso."
We'll have to wait a couple more weeks before we get to experience the fire ourselves. But you should probably start planning that party now. Because a Congorock show in Miami will go mad hard, no matter if Sean Paul is a factor or not.
Congorock. Friday, October 19. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $30 via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Call 305-695-8411 or visit mansionmiami.com .
