Remember this post here at GB?
To the question, what came first, the chicken or the egg? Our man Toy Selectah simply answers; the omelette!
Being stuck in Brussels now after having played at a poorly attented Mexican festival night last Saturday, his flight has been rescheduled till next week by the ash gods. This calls for some heavy cumbia thunderstorms with acid chili rains, hell yeah!
Lo and behold, inspiration already came from M.I.A.’s new video -which is sparking up some heavy flames at the internet forum & twitter menagerie hah!-
Look-y HERE if ya don’t know what the fuss is about or haven’t been infected by the what’s-it-about-hype yet. Toy took it and now owns it before the media spin has even made a complete lift off. Wow, how motivated a quality remixer can you be! It was good fun having the hombre remixing it live in my livingroom. And only 10 minutes late according to his own deadline. Time to get it straight, some scrambled eggs in audio!
Here’s the M.I.A. song:
M.I.A. – BORN FREE
Here’s the original by Suicide
SUICIDE – GHOSTRIDER
Here’s the Zurita remix (from early 2009)
ZURITA – SUICIDE CUMBIA
And finally, here’s Toy Selectah’s freshly cooked Mexican omelette mix. with extra CHILI!
M.I.A. VS SUICIDE VS ZURITA VS TOY SELECTAH – BORNFREEOFGHOSTRIDING (MEXICAN OMELETTE REMIX)

I just peeked at the twitter Pitchfork spin; one of M.I.A.’s new songs will be called ‘Tequila’.Watcha gonna do about that one Toy? Wait and see.
And another present from Toy, his freshly uploaded Raverton Worldwide Mixtape!

And hey, Toy will be hanging around Belgium and Holland the next few days. If anyone has a spot for him to play on Friday or Saturday night at a good bargain rate, hit him up!
This Thursday night the orange Queensday madness is kicking in Holland. If you are around, just come to Utrecht for the eclectic global 8bit dubtech *1UP* party! Toy Selectah might even join us last-minute. Check here.
Busy times ahead, speak y’all soon -some muslim dub awaiting for next guest post!-
