Caballo – Recycled Revolution

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

Loki Da Trixta- How about Dembow

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.

DJ TAMALERO & DJ JUICE- I’m an Albatraoz

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!

Gux Swadharma & The Candela Machine

Around 25 years ago, Colombia was at the verge of creating a whole new chapter in terms of its musical expansion, they called it “fusion”.

Fusion was blending rock with afro-cumbia patterns in order to reaffirm the collective sentiment of authenticity most of bands were looking for, starting from Bloque de Busqueda, Aterciopelados, Ekhimosis it went really fast to the underground acts like Morphonia, Shai, and so on..

From all the acts of those times, the first band that went blending cumbia, with ragga and nu-metal was H.U.M.O. , and let me tell you, this band was visionary, and everything you’d like to have at the time.. awesome music, great lyrics, massive live appeal. They had one thing that wasn’t on their favor, tho. They were “poor” as in coming from a conflicting neighborhood where social scrutiny and prejudice would not allow fellow bands to go to, or allow them to open up to other scenes within the city which eventually caused the band to dismantle and each member to go on different routes.

The brain behind the fusion part in H.U.M.O was a producer who had made waves in the underground as a guitarist, vocalist and overall a pioneer in foreseeing the value of adding cultural value to existing genres.

Gux Swadharma, whose real name is Gustavo Torres, became an underground cumbia fusion pioneer in the same ranks of Pernett, Dragao, or Simon Mejia (from Bomba Estereo) although his personal choice went towards academy becoming a University/College professor rather than an active musician which explains why we didn’t really hear from him as much as we would like to.

Fast forward to 2019, Gux Swadharma gets The Candela Machine on full power to unveils his latest track called Cienaga Song in which we find ourselves listening to a mature futuristic roots track that keeps tight relation to the iconic cumbia cienagera.

CHCKN-POUL

chckn id poul
Right after Happy Colors’ EP Twerka Dominicana blew everyone’s mind including Diplo, Dillon Francis and all the Moombah-Bass community, Latino Resiste entered a path in terms of bringing rising stars to our little platform. Happily we got to also debut Rathero, Bacondo, Godwonder, White Gangster, Billion Dollars, Alpire, Medina, and lots more..

But at the peak of that sick movement one dude was elusive for the longest time.
We became immediate fans of his basic, yet powerful sound and wild basslines.
CHCKN has been Los Angeles’ underground moombahtonista who slays it every single time.

And it seems that good things reach those who wait.
We are extremely proud to release CHCKN latest track POUL.
If you know anything about the “MAL DICEN SOUND” then you can make a mental image of how this tune is straight up flames…
So, get your hard drive ready and download this massive track for ZERO PESOS on any format you wish at BANDCAMP

Also we have the SC stream straight from the source

David Munera- OUH

A genre revival that has taken the underground sounds by the horns, has finally start rising with a whole new generation and approaches.
Aleteo, also known as zapateo, guaracheo, chancleteo and most commonly referred by those who make it house tribal (tribalero).

Aleteo itself is a Colombian hybrid that blends elements of house, guarachero, venezuelan tuki, bass tribal, a dutch house.

And depending which country makes it, their variations root deeper into the urban landscapes. Mexican approach is very minimal, having most of the emphasis in the percussion and drums ( which is commonly seen on jungle terror or borneo bass) Colombian goes for catchy basslines and catchy beats, the venezuelan take still goes for the raptor house signature line, while keeping it much more minimal, less saturated than the early days.

OUH is our first aleteo track from 2018, coming from Medellin’s own David Munera, one of the most promising names in the scene, who is close following the likes of Chris Salgado, Dany F, Elee Bermudez, Syrk, Tamalero, Javier Estrada and many more.

Ouh is a great example of the genre that most likely will start crossfading the ever expansible EDM scenes.

________________________________________________________________________
If you want to know a little more about our opinion about Aleteo (Zapateo) here it is our Latino Resiste own take:

House has always been big in the underground, but for many reasons it was associated with a less glamorous life style than Europe, creating a huge gap between the posh’s house ( like Guetta,Swedish house Mafia, Maxwell, so on) AND what these aleteo djs’ spin.. Chris Salgado, Trivans, Mega and many more.

Tribal has always been under in Mexico, and only reached viral level thanks to the masterful handle Toy Selectah did to 3ballmty; although the genre only ended up splitting into that very well produced sound, and the one that will keep the genre fresh and urban. Championed in two different fronts, Salgado, MAIWEN one, and Dj Tamalero one tribal never faded.

It didn’t take much for djs to blend both, and give birth to their take of guaracheo, zapateo.

On the other hand, Colombia has seen an gargantuan influx of Venezuelan migrants in the last 4 years due to their political/economical situation.
Having said that, many of the people who have left, will join the forces of the ones who were already in the bottom line of the pyramid.
Growing and/or living now in the city’s slums creates subcultures like in Venezuela when Changa Tuki appeared. So, it wasn’t too complicated that people who still listen to house, and more important, still produce, spin and dance to it, will add their raptor house to the existing Colombian approach. All this became not just a musical genre, it is a life style where upbeat, bouncy dance music championed by tight-dressed DJs and dancers.

Both a response to and a reflection of the volatile circumstances that surrounds it, Alateo/Zapateo is often associated with low profile parties, cheap bars, and minimal attention to the dj equipment. ultimately a way to show off the talent coming out of the barrios, an escape from poverty, and a form of catharsis.

Musically, it can be traced; but, of course, there is always someone who made something similar way before, so unless there is definite proof, it is better to leave that the style was just an inevitable product of the stuff many people were making like Jairo Mendez (VNZ)started in 2010, combined with DJ Tetris (MX), Tamalero (MX/USA), Javier Estrada with prehispanic guarachero and the tribal house DANY F made on his EP LA Nave (2011).

Mazor- Dementa

dementa art

Seattle’s own latino bangerista MAZOR joins Latino Resiste to unveil his catchy moombahton track DEMENTA.
It starts with a pretty standard dembow beat supporting Tego’s dreary drawl before turning into a slivered tropical riff that once the drop kicks in stands up with moombahton’s elite best whine exercises.
Enjoy it for #zeropesos
