“Luchando y Cantando” = Captain Planet x Raggabund x Clan Urbano x Sarmiento
In preparation for my upcoming album “Esperanto Slang” which drops later this Spring, I’m giving away some freebies starting with this big intercontinental collaboration. South American brothers Raggabund (Paco Mendoza & Don Caramelo) + Peruvian hip hop crew Clan Urbano + Spanish rude bwoy Sarmiento, all gettin’ nice over a classic boom bap beat by yours truly- featuring horns from Brooklyn afrobeat band Zongo Junction. Global music, worldwide vibes…

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!

Happy to announce the release of this latest remix I produced for the Brooklyn-based 10-piece afrobeat ensemble Zongo Junction. Check out the 7″ single they are also dropping today on Primary Records. They have a pretty classic sound that pays homage to Fela, Tony Allen & other afrobeat originators, but I mixed in some heavy synths and hip hop drums to give it that extra head nod bounce. It’s starting to feel like Summer around here, so I hope this one gets spins at a BBQ near you. Big shout out to the always tasty OkayAfrica.com for giving some early love to the track too. Free download, get it while it’s hot.
