One of the masters of Transnational Bass is back with another masterclass in how to edit tracks in an elite fashion taking in Cumbia, Rai, Calypso, Salsa, Dancehall and the Brazillian Beach dance Ciranda.
Once again, this is superior quality!
The second release from Que Bajo records, Uproot Andy’s Worldwide Ting Vol. 2. picks up where Vol. 1 left off, with 6 more remixes of 6 musical styles from 6 distinct parts of the world!
‘America’ sees the K’naan tune that sampled Ethiopia’s Mulatu Astatke, as well as Astatke’s original both remixed and joined together by a heavy swinging cumbia rhythm. ‘El Forastero’ remixes Galileo’s version of a Colombian salsa classic with the most blazing horns. ‘Bassoue’ is a dancehall and dembow take on a feel good Calypso tune by Les Rapaces from Guadeloupe. ‘Raba Raba’ remixes Algeria’s Khaled aka the King of Raï. ‘Camino a Colombia’ punches up the Mexican sonidero style cumbia of New York based Estrellas de la Kumbia and ‘Bonina’ rounds it out with a remix of the ciranda tune by Brazil’s Siba e A Fuloresta. All with a heavy dose of bass, plenty of dembow, and those Uproot Andy synth melodies.
