DJ Kass reintroduces ‘dembow’, a Caribbean popular music genre from Jamaica, with a Latin twist to US market with the monster hit, ‘Scooby Doo Pa Pa’.
DJ Kass, a Dominican Republic-born disc jockey raised in New York City, released a comedic video for “Scooby Doo Pa Pa”, inspired by the British comedian—Michael Dapaah—known for his infamous onomatopoeia in the sensational “Mans Not Hot” (now at 247 million plus views on YouTube).
Furthermore, based on what I’ve read, DJ Kass was “fascinated by his father’s use of various instruments to move crowds.” His father was a well-known local DJ. Earlier in the year, famous Latin YouTuber Lele Pons recorded a skit of her dancing to the track dressed up as characters from Scooby Doo, the classic American cartoon. Lele Pons have over a whopping twenty-three million followers on Instagram.
Watch the dance off now featuring social influencers from the Internet below. Earlier in the month, the track went viral landing it on the ‘Hot Latin Songs’ chart over at Billboard. As stated at the end of the video, it isn’t to be confused with ‘reggaeton’. It is ‘dembow’, a completely different genre of music.
“I just want to be heard, appreciated, and known in this world for giving a great show and best of all, entertaining the crowd because I live through them,” he says about his newfound success and career growth.
