Reggaeton de Panama: Mach & Daddy, Jimmy Bad Boy

Both artists are unknown to me, but I like their sunny pop songs very much. There's a special summer-night feeling about them that makes me wanna go to the beach and dance below the setting sun. Maybe it's because of the smoothed-down reggaeton beat that characterizes both songs, or maybe because of the easily sung along choruses... And is it a coincidence that both artists are from Panama?

Mach & Daddy's "Pasame La Botella" is intrinsically a sad song, about boozing over a lost girlfriend, but the groovy rhythm makes up for all that. No wonder its a big hit in all of Latinoamerica (especially with verano coming to Central America now).

Jimmy Bad Boy is supposedly a reggaeton artist, but he shamelessly stole the chord progression of "Bailando" from pop artists Bacilos (listen carefully to Caraluna, another very sunny song). Anyway who cares, Bailando is a nice song that makes you feel like jumping up and down all night long.

Quite interesting, because they put some local identity in it.
