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!

Lady Chann - Feel Calm

Lady Chann has voiced Ricky Blaze's Hold Yuh riddim for a new track of her own, dubbed Feel Calm. Yes, it's the same riddim Gyptian uses. 



Either way, I love it. Bonus cut below too.

Sumsin (feat. Frannie Buckles) - Sexpot Riddim

Maybe it's the gorgeous weather today, or maybe it's some under the skin-surface desires, but if you look at the last two posts, and then top it off with this "third in a row of tropical riddim rad radness", you'll see a bit of a trend emerging. We already know my love of beastly riddims, but London boy Sumsin just went and tossed us "sumthin sexy"...nay, sexpot. Wipes brow emphatically now.



The latest in his socamerenguetek-stylings, Sexpot Riddim is a steamy and slinky filled with the whispery coos, oohs and aahs, courtesy of Frannie Buckles. It's like a smoothly minimalistic sense-pleaser with cat-like purrs and pauses.


I can't talk any more about this, because I'd need to excuse myself to a dark dance floor. Or the like.


Equally awesome is his Socasummerengue mix, which is an hour of upbeat tropically-funky beats. Alright, now back to our regularly scheduled beastliness.

Sean Garrett (featuring Tyga and Gucci Mane) - She Geeked

Gucci's been freed, and with his release, he's letting loose a series of sick spits and licks! Gucci Mane is set to release the second part of his trilogy The State Vs. Radric Davis, The Appeal, at the end of the summer and is planning a worldwide tour to promote the upcoming effort. A fresh start with a new record label, a new management and some new collaborations will do any hustler right.



She Geeked is officially the first track Gucci did after his release from county jail. It's a track by Sean Garrett, which also features Tyga. Mane sounds a little softer than he did when compared to his pre-jail verses, but it’s a killer cut nevertheless. Sticky's Jumeirah Riddim gets a hot drop towards the end of the track too...major. The song will appear on Garrett’s upcoming mixtape, Inkwell


Gucci's also made a cameo on a French Montana track produced by J. Cardim. Busy boy's keepin' his nose to the grind and out of trouble. Grab Straight Cash along with She Geeked below.


Note: "she geeked" is my new summa catchphrase. Thanks Mane.

Luda's Got Riddim...Do You?

Prepare yourself for a pleasure of guilty proportions. There's a reason that I've fallen into swoon-mode for Ludacris' track, My Chick Bad; and before you jump to conclusions, no, it's not solely because of the rad drop from Nicki Minaj, who we pined for earlier this week.


The noticeably-rad bass and string line used in Luda's track, from his upcoming album Battle of the Sexes, actually is a sample from Mixpak artist, Sticky

This past November, the London-based producer released his Jumeirah Riddim EP, from which Ludacris pays homage to the title instrumental by slowing it down and giving it a sexy hood swagger. Personally we're fans of Sticky's original, but normally that's the way it goes. Now if only we could get Miss Minaj to spit a lick over it, we'd be all set. (watch Luda's video here)

Via Sticky's EP, we're also treated to a vocal version featuring Natalie Storm, dubbed Look Pon Me. Watch the video here.
