Cobra Krames & DirtyFinger's El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP (Maluca & Jasmine Solano Mixes)

Cumbia riddim fiyah for your Friday afternoon listening pleasures! Sure it may officially be the season named Fall right now, but Cobra Krames and DirtyFinger are laying down some smooth summa steezin' selections with their new El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP. Hitting you with some treats of heat here in Beastonia, we're dosing you with all that good goodness on the real!


Krames dirtyfinger


Grabbing two of Mad Decent's leading ladies, the Bushwick boys rally a riddim worthy of booty bouncing on it's own original accord, but with Maluca and Jasmine Solano lending their El Tigeraso and That's Not It vocals to the base with a beefy bass, we've got 3 cuts of cha-cha-worthy steppin' to get reppin'.


Want in on these slammers? Good, cause you're getting all three for free. S'just how we do!


El Sabor Del Tigeraso EP is the truth, say hey!

Bomba Estereo - Pump Up The Jam (Technotronic Cover)

Yes yes y'all...this is the one installment of the Levi's Pioneer Sessions series that I'd been most looking forward to. And, as expected, it does not disappoint. Olé, olé, olé!




Twenty-one years after Technotronic created a dancefloor masterpiece with Pump Up The Jam, Bomba Estereo have re-crafted the song in their unique big-beat, bi-lingual style. It sounds like Bomba Estereo doing Technotronic's Pump Up The Jam, only totally fresh and relevantly modern.


Video of some behind-the-scenes footage is below.

Bomba Estereo - Aguasala (new video!)

My favorite "electropical" outfit is the Colombian-sprouted Bomba Estereo. Managing to pull from their Cumbian roots with a modern day sensibility and, generally speaking, some of the funnest live performances we've seen this year. And the fun times keep rolling on, now that they've got a new video for us to get all googly-eyed over. Ooooh yeah.



Aguasala comes from their 2009 album, Blow Up. Honestly, since I hadn't heard the release until this year, I'd almost be prone to toss it on my year end list of best of the past 12 months...but that wouldn't really be fair would it? Instead, we'll say, hey, this album is a "killer sick sexy awesome" slice of the rad and be on our way.


But not before letting you in on the video. That would just be rude. 


Now, dance! On a beach. (or at one of their upcoming tour dates...which you can find below the clip.)

Isa GT - Pela'O (Cocotaxi Remix)

It was just about a month ago when I started a daily rapid shimmy and shake session thanks to Isa GT's track Pela'O. The subsequent remixes, along with rad video that utilizes the Crookers' fix of the Cumbian jam, have become a staple of my "I'm hitting the wall at work, so let's play something to get me energized" goings ons. Day jobs...blech.



Today, we get to freshen up our routine, with a free new fix from Stockholm's Cocotaxi. Amping up the traditional horns and taking the scenic route through a vocal fix, the Swedish DJ churns out a glitchier switched up take on the track. It's all good and it's all rad.


It's perfect cause today is Cinco de Mayo...and while that's all sorts of Mexican, I'm sure you're soon to have enough cerveza in you to still enjoy this tasty dish. And how did we hear about this gem? Twitter, duh. 


Seriously, if you're still using Facebook and all that shizz? Adios...

Isa GT - Pela'o (Crookers Remix) [new video!]

This track has been lighting a fire under my feet for a pretty long time, but now that there is a video for the Crookers' remix of Isa GT's spicy stomper, Pela'o, we're super amped to add a load of kindling to the heat that's already been building up around this uniquely talented DJ, MC and producer. Jill of all trades, indeed.



The Medellin, Colombia native has recently chosen London as her base for the last few years...known in the UK capital as resident of the infamous nights Girlcore and Musicalia, which she has taken around the world.


Today marks the release of Isa GT's debut EP. Man Recordings proudly presents her Pa´Chikirri EP. which pairs Pela´o, a ride through an imaginary Colombian baile funk party, with hard hitting beats and tough raps that make any culo shake, with Pa´Las Mamasitas, a girl power song with a Cumbia influence. Lyrically, it´s on the lack of good guys in London. 


Remixes come from Crookers, Joao Brasil and Daniel Haaksman. Buy the EP here, and watch the video for the Crookers' remix of Pela´O now.


BONUS! Isa GT is spinning at Sin Sin in New York City tomorrow night. Win.
