Behold Yo Soy Sauce: the CacheFlowe/Brer Rabbit collaboration two years in the making

Categories: Moving Pictures

So, this first release from Yo Soy Sauce has been in the works for a while -- two years to be exact. The collaborative effort between local electronic guru CacheFlowe and Flobot MC Brer Rabbit officially drops as a single tomorrow, but the duo handed us the video for "Juke Box" over the weekend.

The track also features the delicate voice of Paperbird's Esme Tiger Collins doing some hilarious verbal gymnastics over a tripped-up booty house beat, as well as little of her usually beautiful vocals thrown in at the end.

"We've been experimenting with lots of different styles and making up new genres, like Afrobit, Baroquen Beat, Southern Soul Hop and Opera Hop," says Cacheflowe of the strange concoction. We're still not sure what to think of this first track, but we have to admit that any booty house beat is a good beat. And we're definitely all ears when it comes to finding out what a genre like "Afrobit" might actually sound like. Have a look.

If you can't enjoy this then you are taking life way too seriously.I don't want to live in a world where artists can't have a sense of humor.I'm sure the majority of ARTISTS in this world would agree.As for Ravi saying it's racist... That's an insult to anyone who has ever been a victim of racism. What a ridiculous statement.Lighten up folks.Booty.

Painfully bad.  Rebecca Black bad.  Invoking the word 'booty' repeatedly neither makes a song nor serves as a defense for this atrocious act of narcissism.  Hope the trust fund runs out soon so these punks can't inflict any more damage.

This track makes me get up and holler, laugh, and my booty gets all up and is all like "oh no you di-int" and then i'm just high as hell on booty house all damn day!

LOLZ big time.  I love a track that spawns so much commentary.I personally love it.  It's a hilarious commentary on Juke and Booty House.As well as being genuinely entertaining to watch and to listen to.It's one of those things that reminds me of a number of t-shirts I printed a year ago that said with all of the the bro-iest flare: "I <3 BROSTEP".

Yes, it was a commentary on how ridiculous brostep is.  But yes, it also was a commentary on, well, my genuine affection for it, despite all of the music-purist-hipster hate that brostep started getting a year ago.

In other words, "meta-meta".  Just like this video.  And just the way I like it.

And all you haters out there, buy me a margarita when you see me!  I surely enjoy those :D

You visibly upset people are funny.

Cacheflowe, Brer Rabbit and Esme made a song that they like that is legitimately fun. If you don't like it you could just not listen to it, or if you really need to broadcast your feelings about it at least provide some reasoning for your statements. Calling people "hipster douche bags" or stating that people aren't "serious about their art" from behind a keyboard is bitch made at best.

reminds me of The Doggy Bounce from season one of Flight of the Concords.

Obviously nobody is aware of Chicago/Detroit, Jit/Juke, Booty House/Ghetto Tech.  This is not rap or a subgenre.  This is obviously a light-hearted ode to those scenes/cultures.  Most of Cacheflowe's material is very heady, deep, complex, soulful music.  I am a sticker for this type of music, but I can still get down to this.  It's obviously meant for fun on the dancefloor.  I must admit, it got me moving on the side of a mountain  ;)

Jesus Christ, this is awful.  Go back to the suburbs, please.  How / why did this even get made, let alone posted?

You are all good people. I consider you friends.

Any parody however, that makes a mockery of rap in this way, I find to be an unfortunate expression of racism.

There are cultures that deserve to be ridiculed.

As someone who sees great value in the purity and usefulness of art, I will also never understand the motivation behind creating ironic works that are blatantly, intentionally dishonest.

Love and respectravi

HAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!! Worst fuckin song I have heard in a long, long, long time. I miss a time when musicians were serious about their art. This is as saddening as it is sickening.

Not even listenable for the comic relief factor...just ouch. It's like they just picked up a pirated copy of hiphop eJay and a dirty words sample pack, would have expected more from these folks, even if this is all a joke.

AhhhHaaahaha! So funny. Reference above responses to comments similar to yours... No need to get repetitious :). You must have a happy life sir... But I'm curious, what does make a song...? In your godly opinion? And on what grounds do you assume that they r trustfunders or punks? Also, "atrocious act of narcacissim"? LOL . How exactly so? I wonder What it is you do with your self?What is it that you create? C'mon tell us! so we can go ahead and tell you that while you painted it, it's not a painting, call you names & wish upon you that you should be forced to quit and go away. We booty house lover that of course... Lovers love, aficionados critique, & haters hate ;) which are you sir?

When Adam was here from Chicago I cranked this up for him and he was just blown away. Any of us who have tender feelings for Booty House just can't resist!

LOL.  Calling artists "hipster douchebags" while  assigning your label of "terrible" as "objective"?  Seriously as hilarious as it is rude and, well, ignorant... as long as we're being "objective".  I wonder "person" what it is you listen to?  Should we pull you up some ludacris or brittany spears?  Perhaps you find that more appealing. 

Booty-house is Best-est and Yo Soy Sauce rocks!  Love you guys and can't wait to catch a performance!

People if you can't appreciate humor in electronic music- Go listen to some trance!  Leave our booty bass alone :)

I think you meant "subjectively terrible" since I think it is equally as wonderful as you say it is awful. Unless...oh...you must be the ONE! The One who is the ultimate judge of all things aesthetic!

"Any parody however, that makes a mockery of rap in this way, I find to be an unfortunate expression of racism." I really, really hope I can get the words and steam together to deal with this. "As someone who sees great value in the purity and usefulness of art, I will also never understand the motivation behind creating ironic works that are blatantly, intentionally dishonest." Really man, you're killing me here. Thanks for the laughs.

this is a legitimate, ridiculous booty house tune, not at all a mockery of rap. you missed the boat bigtime, and the charges of racism and dishonesty are flabbergasting.

Oh DenverScener, I think there are still plenty of musicians out there for you who are "serious about their art," unlike these lighthearted fools who managed to collaborate in the midst of their own, well-respected individual careers; making an incredibly well-produced, fun song that nods to some genres that don't get nearly enough attention. And that video! What were they thinking? WHY DIDN'T THEY HIRE SOME PROFESSIONAL DANCERS?

Rachel V. Murray

I didn't realize that "Labia" was a dirty word, it's actually anatomically correct. Most booty house tunes point much more derogatory words at my parts, I love that this is in a way, sex-positive. I has labia.

Rachel V. Murray

I agree. Ravi, put down your race card, it doesn't work here. If there were a legitimate social criticism of the genre, it would probably relate to sexism; they avoided that here.

Hello friend,

Please forgive me if my post came across as an attack. This discussion was in the current print issue of the Westword so I decided to engage.

I am fully aware of, and respect this sub-genre and it is precisely what I am referring to when I use the umbrella term "rap". Perhaps you would not place it under this heading but I see it as birthed from that culture.

I want to make it clear that my claim is not that these individuals are racist but rather, they are expressing a sentiment of racism unintentionally. Extremely mild racism at that.

I have made similar mistakes in my own art.

My understanding of certain philosophical attitudes toward sex leads me to the claim of dishonesty.

If you are interested in talking further about it, I encourage you to contact me. If you live in Denver and know these people (perhaps you are one of them) you'll have no trouble finding me.

The internet is a bad place to have a discussion like this because many of the important components to communication are absent. So I won't continue it here and recognize that I shouldn't have initiated it in the first place. My intention was not to insult.

I appreciate your response and understand that I might be entirely off base. Perhaps you could convince me. I have reasons for making this claim and would welcome a dialog about it.

If not, that's fine too and I respect you for your earnestness and directness.

cheersravi

What does the purity of art mean? What is "pure"? And what is so "pure" about rap or hip hop or any other artistic expression that has ever existed? Just like punk, hip hop was sold out in a haze of money, misogyny and worship of material shit. Christianity and the Christian aesthetic have long served the interests of the elite, Futurists became fascists. Nothing is "pure," at least in my opinion, because we are human, corruptible and lovable.

And if an art form can even be said to near a state of "purity" (perhaps jazz, yet we could un-purify this with enough analysis) it doesn't mean that it's off limits for parody, critical engagement, denouncement or appraisal. Just because I criticize or parody jazz, for example, doesn't make me a racist.

Anymore, hip hop, rap, booty rap, etc. is not an expression of a singular culture or race. No one group owns rap. It has become a cultural mode of artistic expression and consumption the world over. Most art forms, if they are popular enough, share this fate. It's initial or "pure" meaning is forever lost to the infinite creative potential of artists who may not even be aware of its initial or "pure" meaning. And unless an artist is deliberately racist in their expression, which Yo Soy Sauce isn't, then we can hardly say that they are, in fact, racist. It is merely an indication of the fluidity of art and meaning in the contemporary age.

Sure, the Yo Soy Sauce video isn't for everyone. Perhaps it's a statement on the fluidity of artistic expression and race--and the parody thereof--in a post-structural sort of way, of course. But maybe it's just really, really funny.
