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)

& Mamaye (Seiji Remix)

Octa Push : Afroinscope

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.
