Watch out, sexy & musical !
1. Empresarios – Sabor Tropical” EP: Empresarios is a group co-formed by Javier Miranda, a Fort Knox Five and See-I collaborator. They are launching a new EP “Sabor Tropical” (out on 11/01/2011 on Fort Knox recordings) crossing the boundaries of Latin funk and Cumbia. “Sabor tropical” is tagged as “reggaeton” but it’s more a tropical funk ! “Cumbia”, the second track of the EP, has a classic cumbia opening followed by a funky keybord, a spanish guitar inna reggae stylee. There’s a good timbalero and an excellent piano line, it’s a real funky cumbia. 100% de la buena. So my advice, comment the track, encourage them and support they work buying their track.
2. Nickodemus remix Empresarios : You probably have heard this excellent remix by Nickodemus who reworked the “Cumbia” from the Empresarios into a dizzy latin funk bomb ? This is another very successful uptempo blend crushing reggaeton-house and cumbia. There’s fabulous handclaps ! The guys tagged it “latin-funk” so I guess they had a lot of rhums while uploading these tracks cause… what a funk ?? Anyway, I am not a funk “connoisseur”… Let the controversy for another day, take a rhum and dance, it’s a hit !

3. Monte Laa Productions: Attention ! Attention mi gente ! We stay uptempo… Vienna is known for beeing a hot city in Europe although cold winter is showing his nose right now. A lot of good producers live there nowadays and make booty shake ! The project Monte Laa Productions is coming up with a percussive proposition (they are looking for a label on this one), dancefloor orientated basslines and a touch of accordeon sabanero. That’s way from traditional cumbia, but you can feel the influence and you know we like that at Generation bass. Especially if producers mention original artist or sampled sources…
4. Stincky Jim – Remember that Kinky Electric Noise remix of Unitone Hifi from one recent UMB Saturday (real) sexy cumbia ? Well the remixer got remixed by Jim Pinckney aka Stincky Jim ! It’s funny, good ant it’s our Sexy saturday cumbia FREE DOWNLOAD !
