Hailing from the Washington DC area, the EMPRESARIOS mix diverse cultures and sounds together. As one could imagine by the band’s name, there’s some obvious Latin influences at play. It’s evident in “Bestia Remixed” EP.
They enlist four top producers for some blazing remixes on their latest single. First up is J.Boogie conjuring up a deep digital cumbia reworking of Cumbia Salvaje, the tempo is up and the bass is booming!
♥♥♥ The man of the moment, BOBBY C SOUND TV, created a ghetto funk remix of Bailando that is just unstoppable. This is the standout of the bunch. ♥♥♥
Dutch producer Solo Moderna has turned Sentimiento into a one-of-a-kind tropical bass anthem from another planet.
Rounding out the EP is Stereo 77′s ‘Ricanstruction’ of Bestia, turning it into bass-heavy Latin house number that oozes that Miami vibe. It just so happens this tune is available for free download too.
If you can’t handle the vocals, instrumental versions are also available. Check it from iTunes or beatport.
Featuring the vocals of Alanna Stuart of Bonjay, this ep from SMALLTOWN DJs is jam packed with club tunes ranging from dancehall rhythms to house versions. If your ears work, you can’t not have fun at a Smalltown DJs gig. That’s a scientific fact. Look it up. Remixes come from SO SHIFTY, OLIVER, TOP BILLIN, EMYND, JUBILEE & MOMAZING.
Preview in SoundCloud or Bandcamp, both are below.
The Canadian duo’s uncanny ability to make crowds feel like schoolkids at recess stems naturally from their focus on maximizing fun for themselves. On the production side, the duo has in the past also released several blends, remixes and re-edits that have been getting play all over the world. They’re focused on making fun dance music with a sense of humour. Not surprisingly, Smalltown DJs production style resembles the squad’s approach to deejaying – polymorphous, party-focused and pretension free. Smalltown DJs’ quest to maximize fun for themselves and others is an ongoing saga.
I never thought I’d like moombahton, but this compilation from TOP BILLIN has changed that. There’s some serious heat and enough bass to fill dump truck. There’s a quick SoundCloud stream below. If you want to explore a bit further, check out the bandcamp widget below that.
“Kudi” (translation means, “Girl”) is the first release from TIGERSTYLE’s forthcoming new album titled Digi-Bhang. The new material showcases the unique direction they’re taking, by making use of electronic and synthetic sounds and fusing it with Bhangra, international elements, and plenty of bass! This single features vocals of highly acclaimed female Punjabi singer Rani Randeep and comes with a bunch of intense genre jumping remixes, pure ammunition for all dancefloors.

If you’re not familiar, Elite Force has let a metric tonne of these out over the past few years. About two years ago the project culminated in a full length album worth of revamped tunes – which you can find here. Unlike the first official collection, these are all free. There are however many one-offs that have been let loose over the past couple of years available on his SoundCloud page for free.
The latest bootleg from AARON SIGMON reminds me of earlier Stanton Warriors. I think the 808 has a lot to do with it. The tune is built on the original by CHUCKIE with chunky breaks added for good measure. Some tight kicks and snares and a bassline that rolls a bit like lightning on wheels (does that make any sense?) round it out. It’s a bit crunchy with some electro flare (or do I mean flair – they both work in this case). You’ll get the point when you click below for the free download.
