El Coco Remix

cocormx

Got another new one for you! Download is as free as the wind (for all my broke-ass Deejays out there).  I made this remix for a great new compilation of sounds from South America and beyond. You can check out the full comp Frenete Bolivarista right here. Funny thing is, they messed up the TITLE of the song and then it premiered on the THUMP Brazil music blog with the incorrect title. Ayyy chi! I want to apologize to the group Los Folkloristas, but then again, this is a bootleg remix after all, and things like this do get lost in translation sometimes when files are bouncing between continents. Once again, this is some bass-heavy latin roots designed to kick up dust on a dancefloor near you.

Please feel free to download the correctly titled MP3 right here, then bump loudly!

Somewhere Else

coral1

I’m currently feelin a strong itch to get away. Actually more like full blown poison ivy attack mixed with hives. That’s the kind of all-over full body itch I’m talking about. Maybe it’s partly due to the anticipation of travel that is hopefully (fingers crossed) in my near future. I try not to jinx anything until I have my ticket in hand. I’ve been working steadily on a ton of new music which will surely leak its way onto this site over the next several months, and potentially, I’ll be typing about it from someplace as pretty as the underwater world above. For now though, press play on this big selection of outernational sounds that can help you mentally reposition yourself closer to the equator (unless you’re reading this in Ecuador). I’ve got a touch of Jamaica, Colombia, Brazil, Cambodia and West Africa in the mix, plus some other goodies that should get you moving.

Tarrus Riley : Burning Desire
one of the finest reggae roots singers doing it today

El Búho : Pescado Negro
deep and trippy future cumbia vibes from this cat

Castro : Twitch (ft. Branko & Poté)
big collabo zouk bass tune from this UK producer

Joyce Moreno : Aldeia De Ogum (Psychemagik Remix)
the Psyche dudes hit home once again- trippy, breezy, and just enough bounce

Afriquoi : Kudaushe
african future roots outta London

Tony Quattro : Zulu Carnival
heavy big room tune from this NYC dj for Branko’s Enchufada label.

Davido : Skelewu
smash hit from Nigeria’s current mega-dude that I slept on for way too long

2face Idibia : GO ft. Machel Montano
another big name in the Naija scene featuring the undisputed Trini carnival king

Mc Jaja : Eu Quero é Tu
I hear from Chief Boima this one is making major waves throughout Brazil and I can hear why

Staff Benda Bilili : Osali Mabe
feel good modern roots music from the Congo

Vieux Gazeur : Mon Pépé
some drum-heavy zouglou bizniz from Cote D’Ivoire designed specifically to move your rump

Bulimundo : Santo Antoni la Belem (Hide & Smile Edit)
moving onward to the funky side of Cape Verde, comes this excellent edit from the Sofrito crew

Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra : Ghost In The Rain (ft. Clutchy Hopkins & Chhom Nimol)
leaving you with a moody psychedelic slow jam featuring the Cambodian songstress front-woman from Dengue Fever. Would love to collabo with her one day…

New Dorp. New York Bootleg

New Dorp

Just wanted to share this quick edit I made of a tune from the latest SBTRK album featuring vocals by Ezra Koenig. I know this guy’s voice verges on being annoying, but something about this song always gets me and I wanted to have a version I could drop for the dancefloor. Just gave it a touch of extra sauce, hope you dig. FREE DOWNLOAD get it while the gettin’ is good.

Attention all my Angelenos! Got a whole lot cooking this week for Grammy festivities, starting tonight. I’m doing a not-so-open event earlier in the night with Questlove & Charli XCX which I’m pretty stoked about, but then the real party will be at Acabar afterwards with my BKLA partner DJ Cato and this month’s guests Aaron DRM & Erik The Red (who collectively run Bastard Jazz Records). We also have some special guests who will be dropping in to add some extra flavor to the mix (I see you Plann B!). If you’ve never been to Acabar, you are sleeping! This spot is seriously gorgeous and the sound system is proper. I had time to put together a quick playlist with a few new joints that will probably get played tonight. Hope to see you there…

Anderson Paak : Miss Right

ODESZA : All We Need ft. Shy Girls

Love Taps : Back For More ft. Maya Killtron

AlunaGeorge : Kaleidoscope Love (Kaytranada Edition)

Branko : Eventually ft. Alex Rita & Bison

Full Crate : Hurt Your Back & Really Love

Sleey Tom & Gladiator : Cruise Control

Dengue Dengue Dengue! : R2

iZem : Sadeo ft. Feather

Buyepongo : Mulatu Para Ti

Still on the run (thus the lack of posting), but I have too much new music not to share! Enjoy these goodies and check out more eye candy from this badass Russian surrealist Elena Vizerskaya. Also, for any of you in the LA area, I’ve got another edition of my highly excellent BKLA party next Thursday night at one of the most beautiful places to get down in all of Hollyweird. Until the next moment when I can come up for air… peace

Maestros Remix

Maestros

Very happy to share this latest remix with you all (and make it available for FREE). This is a collaboration I did with my homie and DJ partner Canyon Cody (Subsuelo mastermind) for local LA cumbia superheroes Buyepongo. These guys have been keeping the heavy roots alive and well around Southern California for a minute, and I’m hoping this is the first of more collaborations to come. We took their classic cumbia tribute to the masters and brought it to the club. Fans of 808’s and moombahton should find plenty to like about this one.

Alternate download link (since soundcloud seems to be trippin): RIGHT HERE
