Post-geographic Tropical

Global Local



The usual mix of hot and breezy beats today, on the occasion of New York Tropical’s release.  I already mentioned the unstoppable power that is AfroCubism, so you should have already gotten down on that. Other notables here include one of several killer remixes of Combination – a melodic stomper from West Africa made all the more fun by its wide range of remix agents. The new DJ/Rupture track is supurb as expected, I don’t know anything about the singer but will definitely be fixing that soon. Very beautiful textures of guitars and warble bass mixing with her cloudy vocals.  And finally there is madhouse track Like I See It by Jah Cure, Rick Ross and Mavado. HEAVY. Get listening.
