Since the label inception we have been keeping an eye on everything Tribal, we were very grateful to spot some of the most talented guys at the moment before they got famous such as Erick Rincon, Dj Tetris or Javier Estrada on our compilations AZTLAN & 3BALL (CLICK TO check them out) In the same spirit, these genres keep evolving, and we’ve got the privilege to unveil for many this super talented producer.
Perreo Prehispanico? Why not… Guaracha 3Ball? for sure!!!

Being one of the pioneers of the 3ball scene in United States, Emmanuel Tamalero brought a whole new game to the latin genre, making a great counterpoint to what Monterrey’s scene had already created with Tetris, Alan Gonzalez and 3ballMTY, and at the same time, began a new chapter for the expansion of 3ball in the chicano underground scene in the south of the USA with massive parties, and weekly showrooms, until trap and EDM began flirting with banda music, and slowly 3ball found its niche and somehow stood away from the public highlight. Now in 2019, DJ TAMALERO joins DJ JUICE to bring back a rendition to Aronchupa’s epic track. Flirting with Jazz, and f course bringing the whole 3ball game to full throttle, we can get our hands to this flume for #zeropesos!
Praised by Erick Rincon, and Toy Selectah, we unveiled BULB.
This amazing 3ball song was made by DING!, a Texas producer who has a totally new perception of how the genre should be made.
We are very happy to add him to the always expanding Latino resiste family.
Latino Resiste’s sub label The Rebel Records has gone to Monterrey, to bring back to life to the original approach to 3BALL GUARACHERO.
Clap Freckles goes exact to the roots, but fear not, this is also a 2013 sound as he is adding Brazilian berimbau and nu prehispanic sounds.
This very young producer is a prodigy we are very glad to unveil in 2013!!
Early this year TropicalBass, Mad Decent and Latino Resiste among many more websites released a Free compilation made by Mexican Underground leading blog Bootlegumachine n LR, called AZTLAN.
That release dropped some of the most innovative sounds from Mexico, including 2 songs from 3ball biggest names: Erick Rincon and Sheeqo Beat; who are part of 3ball MTY with their partner in crime DJ Otto.
Now, 3ball huarachero, has certainly broken the underground barrier, and slowly is getting attention from Mainstream Media in Mexico, and even though their music is highly appreciated, it is very polarized as it is still considered very ghetto.. Specially because the pointy boots (botas picudas).
A new generation of producers are following the path created by Dj Mouse, Ric Reyna, Alan Rosales, and later on Erick, Sheeqo and Otto aka 3BALL MTY.
This is an effort; trying to show and unveil some of these names for a “non-mexican underground” scene, some people who have been on the game since it started and for some reason are still “unknown”, even for Mexican public.
Now.. Like what happened with the earliest stage of reaggetton or Moombahton; Tribal used to have a very repetitive pattern, usually a 4/4 and beats btw 120 and 130 bpm..
Dj Mouse, Rosales, 3TS, Reyna are the pionners of that sound.
Until the new kings arrived….Erick, and Javier Estrada worked together in 2006, but then Sheeqo Beat came into the scene and started working with Erick on what we now know 3ball MTY.
Obviously having their own background and influences which altered and polarized the tribal scene, not only in MX but also it made it more accessible for global bass ears, although at the same time, it sent a HUGE portion of tribal even more underground.
If you want to know more about 3ball, and its social impact, you can watch this short documentary
and read this Interview I made to Erick Rincon and Sheeqo Beat
How did you guys started in tribal?
Erick Rincon: Before 3ball gurchero, Sheeqo Beat and I produced electro-house and latin-House.
Do you guys think you have a certain “style” different than the other 3ball Dj’s?
Erick: Well. I can not say we have a signature, as we all have very different styles, 3ball MTY is a crew, not just 3 dj’s, and Otto, Sheeqo, and Erick have different styles
Sheeqo loves Latin stuff, specially latin house.
Otto loves Dutch-house and Minimal house.
I am more of an Electro and cumbianchero (cumbia lover).
How did you started doing 3ball?
Erick: Sheeqo and I, were not doing so well with electro-house, besides it was impossible not to dig 3ball..every time we went to some friend’s party 3ball was there!!
So when we arrived home we came with tons of 3ball ideas, we did keep the synth and loops, just that we wanted to have a different base, more cumbiambera, heavier basslines, tropical congas, guarachas and shakers!!!
So 3ball obviously has a different perception from the public in Europe, North America and Mexico.
So I asked Sergio (Sheeqo) his personal views about 3ball
What is the Mexican perception about tribal guarachero?
Sheeqo Beat: Tribal guarachero here in my town, is “suited” by certain people, it is for lower class people or kids, although most of the people still find it disgusting!
However, people are different everywhere,European Public is more open, but even now here in Mexico we have played in many places that never played huarachero and people who were there loved 3BALL ! and they were all adults!!
One of the things I like most is that we have always handled the 3ball for people who are underage, or very young, they are between 12 to 16 years old, but this genre is slowly getting more respected from older crowds and that’s what excites me!, I think gradually Guarachero and 3ball will be more enjoyable for people who think that it is a genre that should have never existed.
