First off, if you’re a person who likes things that are visually stunning, emotionally stirring, and creatively cutting edge, then I highly recommend watching Life Of Pi. The classic “desert island” or “stranded at sea” scenario that we all use to make essential lists, gets really weird when you start to imagine the inner depths of creativity that get explored while suspended in total isolation. I can’t help but imagine what type of surreal, bugged out beats I would start to create in my head if I were in that position- forced to escape deep into bass and snares that only exist in brain waves. Anyway, today’s batch of global goodies are certainly moving in the direction of what I think that setlist might sound like.
Zuzuka Poderosa & Kush Aurora : Pisicodelia (Nego Mozambique Remix)
my homegirl Zuzu is back spitting hot lava flows on this one. She’s staying busy, and one of these days a proper collab will happen.
Rude Boy ft. Elvis (**updated info**) : Passa Passa (Schlachthofbronx Edit)
Potential Kidd : A Yah So Nice (Shlachthofbronx Edit)
2 big tunes from these continually genre-defying beatmakers. You can get a nice free ep of edits on their soundcloud.
DJ Demoledor : El Lorito Lloron
my boy Minimum Tek just got back from Barranquilla, Colombia and slipped a few bonkers champeta mixtape cuts my way. This one really stands out. Looks like this is the dude responsible.
