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
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 Patio– Watagatapitusberry (Toy Selectah’s MexMore rmx)
Tribal Guarachero/Ubsurd lyrics/Ass-shaking bottom end- what more do you want from a club banger?
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
