It seems that every track Mexican Duo Sixteen Catharina releases eclipses the prior.
The Mendoza cousins-producers have been getting a lot of attention for skillfully remixing well-known Moombah and bass and very recently being a regular must grab from La Clinica records’ masterpieces. Sixteen Catharina signature sound is a blend of melodic mastery coupled with glistening synth work and buoyant energy that consistently emits cheerful sensibilities.
For their latest Ciento Cincuenta track, they flip the bubbling pace, add as striking bassline and their synth work helps to reach the boiling point on thedrop until their slow-flip dembow hits you.

Following the path opened by Yirbin, Pocz & Pacheko in terms of Tuki,which has been one the most ghetto genres in South America, normally banned by media and “posh” people, it grew basically out of sight from the conventional media.
Tuki, in case you haven’t heard about it, it’s a variation of “Changa” which basically is a venezuelan slang word from the 90s that means “House music”.The people that danced to this music and partied to it were called “waperos” (pronounced “wape-ross”). The word came from “PUMP UP THE JAM” (people would understand the lyrics as “pump wapejam, wape-ross, wape-ross, wap wape…”). So the Wapero fashion was huge.
Then this sound developed into something called Raptor house, and then it became really ghetto, giving birth to TUKI, Tuki is a blend between Changa, Raptor house, Hard Fusion…
But then, Pocz, Pacheko, Jairo Mendez, Mr Ioso, and few more took it to the next level: THE BASS LEVEL!!
Tuki Bass gets this elements and blends it with Bubbling and new elements such as dubstep, moombahton, breakbeat, digital cumbia without losing its raptor house explosion, and mixed with many venezuelan pop culture elements that they grew up with, Crazy style, and do not forget about the real shine!!! all the dancers are just amazing !!
Buraka Som Sistema fell in love with tuki and they teamed with some of the producers to push it further.
This is the preview of a documentary about tuki
