Endless Carnival Mix


A little while back, a group of Bay Area sunglasses enthusiasts reached out to me about making a mixtape for their collective. They call themselves Stunner Of The Month, and basically they provide crazy shades to thousands of subscribers on a monthly basis, always accompanied by a fresh mixtape. If that sounds appealing to you, check em out. Because it was the week of Carnival, and Mardi Gras,  and a million other historically related parties around the world, I decided to make a mix to help keep everyone shaking long after Fat Tuesday. The tracklist is heavy on tropical vibes from equatorial locations where stunner shades are a must. There’s plenty of reggae and dancehall selections, but also a taste of Brazil, Trinidad, Panama, Dominican Republic, Ghana, Colombia, Angola and a few other places where people like spicy food. The mix peppers in a few Captain Planet remixes and finishes off with a brand new unreleased original tune that will be on my upcoming album “Esperanto Slang” which drops later this Spring on Bastard Jazz.

Sick Beats (To Cure The Flu)

Came down with a nasty bug this week. Might be connected to my overwhelming disgust at the Zimmerman not guilty verdict, but this ain’t a politics blog, so I’ll spare you my rant. Instead, I’ve decided to share with you this heavy dose of new heaters in between consecutive nose blowing fits and coughing convulsions. Lots of latin & global bass tunes in the playlist, also partly inspired by the fun-as-hell Tormenta Tropical party that I did last Friday alongside DJ Theory, Oro11 & Paul Devro. Gotta keep my energy up for 4 more consecutive nights of DJ-ing this week, so hopefully these joints will keep me on my feet… If you want to see more bizarre pics of insanely groomed dogs, check out the spread by Ren Netherland up now at Juxtapoz.

Thornato :       Gaita Gaita
serious anthem alert from my NYC homie Thor. Check out the full compilation on ZZK where this tune can be found.

Ondatropica :       El Caiman Y El Gallinazo (Atropolis Remix)
dopeness runs in the blood, ’cause this one from Atropolis (Thor’s cousin and Cumba Mela compatriot) is also seriously fiya

So Shifty :       Rude Gal (ft. Paco Mendoza) &       Rumba (Peligrosa Remix)
I’m loving these guys‘ productions and am very much looking forward to an album in the future…

Los Cojolites :       Luna Negra (Uproot Andy Remix)
Kabaka International :       Mangala Special (Uproot Andy Remix)
from another of my NY friends (and Que Bajo co-founder), Andy murked this whole worldwide mix. Cop the EP for FREEEEE

Novalima :       Diablo (Xacosa Remix) &       Mamaye (Seiji Remix)
taken from this dope new EP on Wonderwheel. Get it.

Octa Push :       Afroinscope &       Ali Dom ft. Braima Galissa
big shouts to DJ Nadi for puttin me on to this one. Very influenced by SBTRKT, but I ain’t mad at that one bit.

Clap! Clap! :       Hold On (ft. LSWR)
&       Please Mother Rain Wash Our Souls From Human Evil
thanks due to Soundbwoy Surian for the heads up on this guy.

Elvis Crespo :       Suavemente (Kennedy Jones Trap Remix)
certified dancefloor destroyer, you have been warned.

B.Lewis & Sango      Não é Nada
Brazilian electro trap monster

L D R U :       The Tropics
space music right here. This one makes me go dumb every time.

Esto Es Candela Remix


Brand new official remix I did for Dutty Artz drops today as part of the excellent Palenque Records Remixed project. Rootsy Colombian folk music gets updated for the dancefloor by some of the heaviest names in global bass music (features tracks from So Shifty, Thornato, Geko Jones, Atropolis, Boima & more). I’m honored to be a part of this project, and the entire album is really top notch. Jeff Guerra wrote this highly informative article that goes into more depth about the background of Palenque music, how this album came into being, and even has interview snippets from some of the musicians involved (myself included). Also, check out the cool promo video, and please support by purchasing on iTunes if you dig the sounds!
