|Supa Dynamite Soul: Raashan Ahmad|
On "Lambada," a banging electro groove with clashing cymbals and pop-lock handclaps provide a template for another of Ahmad's testimonials to b-boy aesthetics and dancefloor sweatiness: "snap your neck, show respect to the disk jock/ it's hip-hop, if you is not/ no matter keep it moving like a cuckoo clock."
The song is lifted from Ahmad's new digital release Soul Power. In a press release, he describes why he recorded it: "I discovered that I wanted to add more bangin' songs to my live set. Soul Power is the result. When I say 'soul power', I'm talking about about what gives my soul, my spirit power--which is music!" The 13-track album features guest spots by Aceyalone and Aima, as well as production by Ahmad's fellow Crown City folks Woodstock, Headnodic, and Kat 010.
