First off, tomorrow Uproot Andy and I are bringing Que Bajo?! back to the bassment at Santos Party House. We’ve taken several trips to south america in the past year and this will be our first time together since our tour back in October.

Secondly, I think its about time we kicked off top 5/10 monthly for you so here’s a few of my picks for the party.

Geko Jones’ Top 5 Latin January 2010

Suckafish P. Jones
Cloak and Dagger Empire
found this via Culture System full EP available here. La Zeneida gets reworked into absolute cumbia mayhem on Disboot Records

Crystal Fighters – I love LDN (Meneo’s menrenstep remix) Fakes left with a cumbia shuffle then breaks down double time merengue wobble

Barney Iller
– La Bony
Digi-bullerengue bizness from the heart of brooklyn, Que Bajo?! regular making it happen in the studio! This one will be out soon on vinyl with B-sides from me and andy. Wobble heads give a listen to his tune Ay Carajo!

Blank Point ft Del PatioWatagatapitusberry (Toy Selectah’s MexMore rmx)
Tribal Guarachero/Ubsurd lyrics/Ass-shaking bottom end- what more do you want from a club banger?

Rita Indiana y Los Mysterios Jardinera

Rupture spotted a video performance for this in august. I got my hands on it this weekend and am rediscovering it for its dancefloor possibilities. Laid back merengue on the disco tip


  1. Yea man, I just came across this 8bit merenque joint by Barney Iller that uses a Zelda sample – and it was nasty. On his Soundcloud.
