Mike who? Mike WIll
In keeping things dirty south on this thing, I thought it would be appropriate to share some southern sounds that may or may not be new to you. I was recently told about a new producer who’s work completely captured my ears, Mike Will Made It. The first song I heard, and my favorite is “773 Love”. Check out the DJ friendly remix by Cashmere Cat. Straight to the crates....
This remix of Anthony B and Jahdan Blakkamoore’s “Dem Can’t Stop We From Talk” by Bleepolar has been firing up the floor this summer. Check out the extensive remix list on Subatomic Sounds set here:
SOL EP 22 - "BLOW"
Fresh dance-floor heat from the Sol Selectas camp, “BLOW”. The original, produced by Canadian based Smalltown DJ’s, throws this moombahton track into bassline/house territory with just the right amount of wobble to keep the ladies from turning into bros. DJ Sabo and Paul Devro provide two uptempo house remixes, the first filled with striking tribal percussion and forward-four...

Sean Paul - Hold Ya Hand (Navo Remix)
Felt inspired earlier this week when I heard this track. I’m a sucker for melodies like these and love dub vybez, so with a few glasses of wine and a bag of plaintain chips, this manifested. Gonna head up work on this blog thing in the near future so for now please click the link to my soundcloud. http://soundcloud.com/navoo/sean-paul-hold-ya-hand-navo
MATI ZUNDEL - AMAZONICO GRAVITANTE
Amazonico Gravitante, translated into ‘Gravitating Amazonian’, is the title of Mati Zundel’s aka Lagartijeando’s newest album. Released on the psico-infamous cumbia-digital label, ZZK Records, there is no reason to doubt that this album signifies a digital, humanistic shift in rhythm that is happening worldwide. Mati mixes his influences from the high-altitude folkloric...
TED x Soweto feat Spoek Mathambo
After being introduced to Spoek’s vocals on the Schlachtofbronx “Nasty Bass” EP, he’s been on my tropical bass radar. Having caught him live for my first time at the Boiler Room day party at SXSW this year, I’m officially subscribed to his musical endeavors. His bands performance was captivating and rhythmically infectious, never letting a beat or chord go weak. I...

Chancha Via Circuito
BY Juan Data | PUBLISHED: Monday, March 28th, 2011 There’s very little cumbia and absolutely no birds in Chancha Via Circuito’s “Cumbión de las aves,” so if you were expecting a Zizek take on the classic “La Cumbia de los Mirlos” (popularly known as “La Cumbia de los Pajaritos”), you’ll be disappointed. Cumbia is only subtly present in the beat’s cadence, albeit sans the characteristic...

Dj Sober + Prince Klassen Business Class →
New mixtape from two of Texas top DJs: DJ Sober & Prince Klassen. Klassen has long been one of my favorite five djs in Texas, and after seeing Sober hold it down flawlessly at Beauty Bar Dallas this past Thursday, he is definitely on my list. For these two gentlemen, I must say they represent the small percentage of true taste-makers in the dj game. I highly recommend purchasing this...
