Let’s Get Tropical: This Week In Jungle Terror

Rivers-Fiji2

The New Jungle Terror Is Deep And Dirty.

In increasing frequency, Jungle Terror is front and centre when heads get together and talk about emerging genres, and today’s edition of Let’s Get Tropical is no exception.  I’ve hand chosen 5 of the best tunes released this week to make you move your feet, so read on, and get your fix.

I don’t think you’re ready for that fourth and fifth song down yet, so ima start you in Dubai.

Then you gotta make it past this swamp monster of a track…You can’t even get into a conversation about Jungle Terror without this guy’s name coming up.

And to Jamaica, for a re-Work…See what I did there?

The next selection sums it up nicely at 3 minutes in.  Check out the way they flip that vocal sample!

With a side of hard and dirty.

Stay tuned for next week’s edition!  Big things are coming: including an interview with El Cuco Recordings’ own Mendez!

Let’s Get Tropical: Breaking Baile Funk.

breaking baile funk

Ay.  Welcome back to Let’s Get Tropical, only on Arntre.  This week we’re exploring Baile Funk, and how it’s changing lately.

It’s a genre that’s getting a lot of attention lately, and we focus today on some fresh tracks (just posted this week) to further highlight how it’s progressed.

Not only are we breaking fresh tunes to you today, we’re Breaking Baile Funk.

SO, there’s your example of the attention it’s been getting.  A Breaking Bad theme remix.    Still not mainstream enough for you?

 

Here’s where shit gets crazy, and starts breaking up.  Leo Justi’s “Breach – Jack” remix takes it to another level entirely, giving us a Breakbeat soaked version, and calling it “Heavy Baile“.  One listen down his Soundcloud Page and you can see where he’s going with this.

That’s right.  Heavy Baile is now a thing.

The sound is heavy, gritty, tribal, and strong.  Breaking Baile Funk down to a classic feel makes it stand out (in a global sense), making it easy to blend into just about any other style.  MC Bob Rum – Rap Do Silva ( via Eu Amo Baile Funk) Does a great job of this, lending a Miami Bass feel to the sound.  Proof:
.

On that party feel, Dhalsim King does a great job of infusing Heavy Baile Funk with a club vibe on his remix of ‘Dev – In The Dark’.  Sexy, Dance worthy, and definitely Tropical.

Next and lastly, check out this Baile Funk/Tech House cross over joint.  Too good to turn down.  Battric & Mivu did something amazing with this song, blending classic Tech House sexiness and minimalism to a tropical song.

 

That’s it for this week!  Thanks for checking us out, and be sure to come back week for the next episode of Let’s Get Tropical.
