ZIZEK………EL REMOLON….WE AWAIT THE KING VILLA DIAMANTE!

May 17, 2009

ZIZEK_CLUB_MAY___ADDICTED_TO_THURSDAYS--image_4Couple of EL REMOLON cuts/(s)mash ups from the label that barely needs any introduction at GENERATION BASS.

Feast your ears to these whilst we await for ZZK RECORDS DIGITAL album release in June of my personal favourite from the label, VILLA DIAMANTE!

VD (man that sounds bad, in England it’s short-hand for Veneral Disease…haa.haaa) was kind enough to send me an EXCLUSIVE sneak pre-release copy of his album.  Man, it’s everything and more, of what I was expecting from this very cool dude.

Not forgetting that many of his (s)smash ups helped to ‘DEFINE’ my GLOBAL GHETTOTECH MIX! (You can still get this at FAIRTILIZER and btw some guy I friended on FB left me a message saying he was doing his University dissertation on ‘GLOBAL GHETTOTECH’! as a music movement…..man that’s COOLIO…..Let’s just hope GENERATION BASS & VD et al get a mention).

Villa’s album drops in JUNE and so that’s an important date for your diaries.

For now, EL REMOLON:

VERDIS QUO (DAFT PUNK REPRISE) vs DE LA SOUL

MATIAS AGUAYO (MINIMAL) (EL REMOLON REMIX)


EL REMOLON drops FREE NU CUMBIA!

April 3, 2009

from the amigos at ZZK:

El Remolón throws out some surprising new tracks in the B-Side of his album Pibe Cosmo, all while keeping his mashup spirit strong.

Even though the influences in Pibe Cosmo are quite clear, the B-Side shows where these sounds came from and where they are going. Since when has the link between Animal Collective and cumbia existed? Between Alcides and the new post-dubstep generation?

The remixes and mashups from the B-Side of Pibe Cosmo will be available to download for free from ZZK Records… for now, just a preview.

Matias Aguayo – Minimal (El Remolón Remix)

El Remolón – Veridis Quo (Daft Punk reprise) vs De La Soul

Animal Collective – My Girls (El Remolón Cumbia Mix)

Alcides – Violeta (El Remolón Remix)

100th POST: special cumbia treat!

February 25, 2009

vampiros-deejayThis guy is VAMPIROS DEE JAY. He’s the one that got me addicted to this great bliss we call CUMBIA! I even know the exact bit that did it for me. A string of 4 records in his great LA SONIDERA COLOMBIANA mixtape. And because this is my 100th post, I’ve pulled that bit out of his mix, re-editted it back together and posted it below in hope it makes more addicts to the CUMBIA vibe!

But not before I express my respect to some people that got me started and that have been paving the way. I hope you pay them a visit and I hope you’ll enjoy their music as much as I have. Here we go:

VAMPIROS DEEJAY, SONIDO MARTINES, ORO 11, MARCELO FABIAN, LA CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO, EL HIJO DE LA CUMBIA, GRUPO SONADAR, VILLA DIAMANTE, EL REMOLON, DISCO SHAWN, MAGA BO and SAXIXIA, thanks so much!

careful now this is highly addictive! – VAMPIROS ADDICTIVE MIX!!
