Montreal-based MIXWELL is an artist some of the people into the afro-bass music might be familiar, and for those who do not know him, we assure a 100% that we all can bond over.
He’s been awing us since we he released a magnificent album under our brothers from CASSETTE BLOG. We have yet to meet a song of his that doesn’t make us want to bust a move. Half Canadian and half Guatemalan, Mixwell is a musical anthropologist of sorts, frequently sonic traveling back through the afro music to find old artists and songs he then mixes with heavy, contagious beats.
Think of him as playing your grandma’s music, but at a volume and with a bass that would have your grandma yelling at you to turn that ruckus off.
We are super honored to present to you AFROPODER
a 3 piece EP with ALL THE AFROPOWER we can get… inclusing the amazing art done by AFROMESTIZA!!
For many years French producer Hugo Douster has been a key figure in the European Tropical scene under his DOUSTER moniker; however once he switched to darker beats with a huge African/Caribbean vibe on his KING DOUDOU project he really took it to the next level to the point of being one of the guys behind the music on J BALVIN’s megahit NEGRO.
He dropped this amazing Perreo Android Riddim back in the days, which triggered the inner beast on Canadian producer Caballo to take it to the Criminal level, which is exactly a combination of both.
PERREO CRIMINAL is available for ZERO PESOS at bandcamp or SC
Electronic producers’ mad dash to work with latin rhythms; After the hybrid blending of reggaeton and Dutch house and the massive appeal that dembow has right now, we have guys like Junior Ponce, a Venezuelan living in Buenos Aires dropping some mad latin bass called MUEVEN which relies on the wiggly instrumental hook that is often popular in moombahton.
Track is simply a bomb to be enjoyed for personal abuse or at any dj set!!
Latino Resiste is super proud to unveil the Debut Album directly from one of the most hyped new producers of Sao Paulo’s Bass and yes, one of the lead heads of the new Favela Bass sound.
If you have been following the new approach of Brazilian bass funk, you may have seen (obviously) Tropkillaz’s raise to the top, and if you actually hear what they play, there are some hidden names that they are so into supporting right now.
KLAP and SANVTTO are 2 of these name, and in fact, this is the debut EP from the former with an actual track with BOTH of them.
On Pega Ahi, Maxwell Santos aka SANVTTO releases some of his most well received EDITS and Remixes which gather tens of thousands of plays on SC, Spotify and the usual digital music things, and have been featured on many Diplo & Friends, BBC, Tropkillaz and many more sets.
Costa Rica hasn’t always been on the tip of one’s tongue when talking about great bass/reggaeton scenes.
However, if you are always keeping an eye on the usual moombahton/dembow/reggaeton oriented soundcloud labels, you will find our Tico homeboy JavierJoeK making strong statements about Costa Rica’s own take on the genre.
Costa Rica’s own take on the genre. We are very please to unveil his most recent EP named Salvaje which is nothing else but a truly great effort to focus Javier’s energy toward original tracks rather than doing what he does best, which is amazing remixes.
On Salvaje we find a more creative Javier, willing to play with basslines and having straight up fun to set any dancefloor on fire regardless the genre you are playing. These 3 songs can fit ANY set.. dembow, reggaeton, moombahton, dancehall, bass, you name it, this is a savage release for #zeropesos
Grime wasn’t exactly supposed to be the sort of genre that bred elder statesmen.
Bass music wasn’t either.
However, like many things coming from the underground scene; both ended up being major players in the mainstream arena.
It was a burst of thrilling anarchy, all these unruly teenagers fuming giddily over homemade PlayStation beats that sounded like malfunctioning spaceships. Grime artists didn’t play shows; they played raves. Young artists were old souls, and a guy like Dizzee Rascal was already radiating bitter paranoia at 16. Wiley, the man who probably deserves the lion’s share of the credit for inventing and developing the sound in the first place, spent his early years beefing with ex-proteges and loudly insisting on his own importance; he’s still doing both now.
It was the UK secret weapon on the streets. This seemed like one of those sudden bursts of collective inspiration that burns hot and fast and then disappears. For a while, that’s what happened, and old grime stars started making crossover dance-pop hits. Grime still exists, but on its pure form doesn’t bring the same sense of excitement that it had in 2003 or, for that matter, 2015. The fractious scene has spun off into a bunch of still-chaotic but smaller scenes, giving birth to UK drill and road rap.
That is why we are beyond excited to drop the first ever Latino Resiste full grime EP by our homeboy CHONG X .
Chong X come back EP is setting an amazing take for the genre, because it totally blends the bass spirit, while maintaining the grimey essence.
The album is set for FREE DOWNLOAD as part of our 10th year celebration.
Many hype youtube channels and soundcloud people are getting massive views thanks to amazing remixes of the latest latin hits.. Prodigy producer KHAER has been ghost producing insanely, and also on his soundcloud there has been lots of great remixes that are been liked, and getting massive support. However, Latino Resiste asked the Venezuelan hit-maker for an original track and the result is BOOTY OUT. Mo’Fyah pon dem gyal booty!!! This track lights up the dancefloor. free download
To celebrate a decade in front of Latino Resiste, Caballo releases a new album exploring the current Urban Latino fronts, whether it is new approach like the opening track Souvenir, or exploring lesser known genres like Mode up (From San Andres Island) on the second track (Te quiero Para Mi) or even adding a bit of ska to the Urban Latino track (SANSON) Caballo wants this album to be a testimony of what the label and his own trip ahead of it has accomplished on these first 10 years.
As usual on any Caballo album, heavy collaborations conjoint lesser known names with equally leveled creative skills. Mixing party intended lyrics as well as political and social tracks.
A massive addition is the Dancehall track IMMIGRATION LAW with legendary Buju Banton, highlighting eternal struggle of immigrants trying to follow the nomadic path of reaching a better life in a new place faces global and social pressures by not only the actual travel’s dangers but also facing the systematic discrimination imposed by those who are afraid of interact with the newcomers.
Another great collaboration is done with Canadian Rap legend RELIC on Nothing to Spare (and later on another track SOCIALITE)
Global Bass pioneer Feral, and Russian basshead Chuck Upbeat are also present on a newer take on Tweet retweet, while Venezuelan bangeristas MEDINA and ALPIRE are present in the album as well, one by producing PUM PUM and the former co-producing Old-school Moombahton Mueve la Patica.
Dave Nada Hermanito’s own RANDIZZLE features Caballo on DURO HP.. a heavy dembow track that becomes a simply a laser bass slayer.
Caballo focuses on bass with the collab with Mr Shammi, and later decides to explore dubstep’s own RIDDIM on Sangre Mestiza, making this the first RIDDIM track exploring Latin-indigenous issues or Favela Bass on BAILE DO PAPAI
Call it an artistic recharge for his tongue-bending lyrics, which kick politically conscious messages tied to raw verses and sexual euphemisms. It’s exactly those elements that have allowed Calle 13’s RESIDENTE to transcend beyond the Latin hip-hop genre and make them a global phenomenon.
However most of the globe got to know Residente thru a massive collaboration with veteran artist VOLTIO.
They dropped Chulin Chulin back in 2005, and of course, having in mind the whole revolution led by Residente, Bad Bunny, Martin, and more PR artists, it was only fair to revisit his first global hit, with a 2020 update!
