Latino Resiste is extremely happy to finally have a whole EP from one of the OG’s in the game.
Back in the day he created a new genre called Junglaton (Drum and Bass fused with Moombahton) alongside Jon Kwest. However, El Nomada kept evolving the game and actually has gone really deep into the game and making great statements in what Latin Drum & Bass is.
Born and raised in Ponce, Puerto Rico EL Nomada sound is a blend of upbeat UK Drum and Bass style percussion, with Latin Reggaeton, and deep dark eclectic Synths and Bass sounds.
At the time he was dubbed “The King of Drumstep” by UK’s Dj UMB from GenerationBass.
El Nomada is also a pioneer of the moombahton movement in Kansas City, and founder of the Kayceeton guild of Kansas City moombahton producers and overall a real OG.
His latest EP called Sabor a Machete is a brutal statement of what Latin Drum & Bass is.
After a huge wave of cumbia in the late 2000s the genre got steady and went back to their original roots in most of the countries that the genre is still alive.
Argentina, Colombia and Mexico kept evolving the genre without losing its cultural impact and it’s very much alive and well in the underground scene, although there is an obvious disconnect between the playlists on the digital streamers and what really people listen on parties, especially street based parties.
Latino Resiste’s Carnnibal who has dropped 3 dancehall albums with the label goes Mestizo with the head honcho Caballo to release BADMAN TALKIN’.
A truly mestizo sound that will remind you why Cumbia and Ragga Dancehall are cousins, and when they both are on the same page.. IT’S STRAIGHT FLAMES.

Singer Leopold Nunan and drag queen Pietra Parker take over Beverly Hills with a new beat and a music video about ostentation and empowerment.
Grab it on our BANDCAMP
But PLEASE make sure to check the amazing video where Brazilian Queer artists live out the fantasy of the American dream in new music video shot on no other place but Rodeo Drive.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and based in the USA, recording artist Leopold Nunan who had released a track with us alongside our good friends WILE OUT, teams up with supertalented drag queen Pietra Parker dropping flames on “Ballin’ in Beverly Hills“.
This babe is mix of hip-hop, afrobeat, trap and favela bass.
A bombastic track for the dance music lovers, says Leo. The BEST PART!!!!
track was produced by 16-year old phenomenon, heavy hitter from Mato Grosso, Brazil, Karan! THIS DUDE IS THE MF FUTURE!!!!
This will be Leopold’s 6th single release and Pietra’s music debut. The music video is a marathon of absurd looks directed by fashion photographer Will Cook. The video was all shot in Beverly Hills, on Rodeo Drive and at a private party at a friend’s mansion.
The lyrics were written by Leopold and Pietra in partnership with Z33R0, an East LA Latino composer, queer performer and activist.
We gathered all our friends to help shoot the music video, so we could realize this dream together. “Ballin” production was done 100% independently. There will be also
3 other versions, a techno version by Golden Kong, a riddim’ take by Klean and a arabian trap signed by Klap – curiously all Brazilian producers.
In 2013, a collaboration between their love for old school jungle music and Drum & Bass got together producers Chong X and Caballo to release JAH JAH RULES .
Then Caballo moved forward with the project alone to drop a second installment called Mayo’ Naizer in 2016 which went more Jungle-Bass, Reggaeton-Jungle and Grime.
Now in 2020 a 3rd chapter called FUTILE FUTURE and it gets to finally see the basslight after a long process of finding right balance, fans of old school jungle as well as those who like Futuristic Drum & Bass can be either pining for songs with typical Shy Fx flavour or for a whole new Ill gates type of sound.
In an attempt to appease both crowds, Futile Future lands somewhere in the between with safe, familiar sounds but also keeps a loose wire in terms of exploration. In fact, the quality of the collaborations/sample/edits makes the vocal talent able to lit the album and keep the old-school vibe even though some of the tracks, like Solid Defense, are a completely futuristic dub & bass . Futile Future is simply put one of the most concrete Jungle albums made by a adopted Latins, especially considering the reputation that these genre have gone through in the past few years in the EDM community.

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
In the celebration of our 10 years, we had to get one of our most beloved producers from the global bass scene, Loki da Trixta, who has a knack for assembling and remixing star-studded, surefire gems . Just check this NYC homeboy’s resume and you will find hit after hit after hit wheteher as a dj, producer or singing.
Once more, the good ole DJ delivers the goods with “HOW ABOUT DEMBOW,” which brings eclectic taste like Rihana, Childish Gambino, or Ghetto kids together on one solid 5 track EP. How about dembow has a darkish sound, perfectly suited for the reggaetón-tinged vibe. Naturally the production is utterly superb, with Loki’s choice of synths, drum programming, and an infectious groove making this a must grab whether for a party or personal abuse.
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!
