Did you watch that Patriots game? It was depressing. The Broncos-Cowboys shootout was amusing, however, and my fantasy team killed it again, and my running back Bilal Powell hasn’t even played yet. There’s lots of great music this week, so let’s get down to it. To your right is none other than my #1 dream crush Taylor Swift.
First off I’d like to mention Blingyeras from Argentina, who dropped an awesome remix EP called “Mala Cuestion,” full of diverse tropical bass remixes including a 102BPM twerk-a-ton remix from yours truly. Follow the free EP link to the Le Ronca Records blog and hit DESCARGA to download.
So if you guys haven’t listened to Broadway Slim yet, do it now. If you haven’t heard of Danny Brown, something is wrong with you. This song made me like big room house again… hip-hop breakdowns into a hard four-to–the-floor can definitely get people going. It got me going. All this is free so not downloading this is a disservice to yourself, the listener.
Who says moombahton is dead? It’s alive and well. I’ve got three different moombahton tracks that really show how diverse it can really be. Dave Nada didn’t call it midtempo global bass music for nothing. Moombah exhibit A: Happy Colors took (what seems to be) samples of Latino television programs with that classy dutch lead and a good helping of twerking.
Moombah exhibit B: Flaxo from NYC makes that big and heavy four-to-the-floor remix of Cash Cash. This feels like a more American style, resonating more with house and the slowed down feels.
Moombah exhibit C: Gabriel Rowano from the Netherlands hits home, a little bit of column A, a little bit of column B.
Moving on, if you’re feeling out of twerk from the government shutdown, Savage got that cure for you.
Now getting hot and tropical… NEKI STRANAC IS THE BEST AGAIN. Seriously, there isn’t one song by him that doesn’t pack heat. You heard this track from the Moombahton Is Dead EP (I hope I shouldn’t have to tell you to go get that EP too). He takes a moombahton track can gives it all sorts of chops and screws. Very entertaining.
