Let’s Get Tropical: #TRAPICAL

Lets get Tropical Image post copy

I Just Scoured Soundcloud’s Barnacly Underbelly To Bring You This Week’s Most Tropical Trap Available.  Read On, & Find Out What It Is To Sound #TRAPICAL.

Just because it’s got a resort on it…Doesn’t mean there’s not a bumpin’ underground music scene.  This week on Let’s Get Tropical, we blow the lid right off that resort, and get #TRAPICAL.  Some good, hard tropical beats to get you through the week, right here, from the gentlest to the dirtiest, all in one go.  Week after week, I’m just gonna keep on dropping names, styles, and labels you’ve never heard of…but should have!  I’m extra happy with this week’s finds.  Even the tropical Country/Western Trap (WTF).

MIAMI MADE BASS GOD KILLS BOILER ROOM FREAKS IN BERLIN

SCHIRACH

Straight to the point; Otto Von Schirach just destroyed a whole cave full of Dragons, Knights, Illuminati Bronies, and Masked Princesses.

 

That’s right, even the princesses.  His first few mixes are trippy, and lead you into the performance, preparing you for some straight freakiness.

He proceeds to warn the crowd they’re about to travel to parts unknown, glitching out the vocals hard, and blending them seamlessly with the tracks.

Like only true Masters of Ceremonies can.  Live vocals during this whole performance make the whole thing so much more entertaining to watch, it’s hard to even look away from.

Did we mention the cameo from the one eyed Screamo Crow?

There are so many different aspects to this performance, you can tell a lot of love went into creating it.  It’s more than a DJ set, it’s an art piece.  The music, the vibe, the hype…all timeless.

And Wait…What?

23 Minutes in he goes complete caveman, bringing the listener/viewer/party straight back to the time of the Dinosaurs, with an absolutely huge Moombahcore slammer, and again back to that oldschool hip hop/bass vibe for a sec…Right before he starts rapping in Spanish over it?

Oh.  I see what he did there.

It was a set up!

Pretty sure no one expected him to blend into Tropical Bass.

This set is full of surprises.

My heart goes out to the booties of the dancers the next morning, because Otto goes hard.  Like…Real Hard.

A lot of the time, he’s not beat matching, but no one cares.  This man is a rock God.  More than that, he is a certified Miami made Bass God.

How the Hell did he just switch over to playing trap?  Wait, is that another Breakbeat?  No, wait…it’s…Proto Jungle?

Booty breaks?

Boiler Room’s write up was right when they called it “…a universal brain-cue from the Bermuda Triangle straight to Berlin… it’s Otto Von Schirach opening port-holes in Boiler Room and out to the universe.”

Breakcore?!

Shit.  Yours.  Don’t lose it.  The next couple of blends are some scary Gabber-esque Breakcore that could cause a lung to implode, given the right set of conditions, but don’t worry.  He gets back to the Miami Bass soon.

You’ve done enough brain work for now, though.  It’s time to stop reading.  Press play, strap yourself in, and prepare yourself for a freaky journey through bass, Otto Von Schirach style.

And if your craving this in your stereo, the whole thing is available to download, free of charge via Boiler Room’s official website.

Let’s Get Tropical Special Feature: Banned In Cuba

Reggaeton

Everything You Need To Know About The Title Of This Article Is Behind This Link

Almost.

We’re really only covering one of the many things banned in Cuba right now.  So, Let’s Get Tropical.

Today’s feature comes to you from the jungles of Central America, where the culture of Reggaeton music is just as strong as the Dembow in its rhythms. Dolo Latin Prophecy is first on deck, showing us what it’s all about with a BIG tune that will have you jumping out of your seat.  From the second this comes in, you know it’s gonna go hard.  Hard knocking bass.  Airhorns.  Classic beats.  Marijuanas.  Doap vocals.  Free Download!  You probably need this.

A great example of how Reggaeton has progressed, DJ RAUL‘s remix of ‘Buena Vista Social Club – Chan Chan‘ is almost literally soaked in Tropical vibes, touching on a few genres along the way.  Starting out On a smooth, percussive Dembow, and ending with the same Horns a lot of Twerk music producers are using lately (See #TWRKSDAYZ this Thursday nite for more on that).  This is a funky, house-y tune that deserves your full attention.  808 samples, Flutes, Chopped And Screwed vocals, and all things Tropical.  It’s a nicely Progressive walk through Reggaeton with your best friends.

Another thing about this style is that it’s got its own Dance Competitions.   That’s right,  Dembow Dance Battles.  If you don’t already know, and even if you do; it’s worth watching a few of the vids behind that last link.

Along with these Battles comes a fast style of DJ mixing to accompany each round, which is exactly what this next fire starter is all about.  Mere bars between blends, and a continuous flow throughout the mix, Rubio RD Prod hit the nail on the head with this next blend.  See why below:

That’s it this time around!  Tune in next week for another edition of Let’s Get Tropical, right here on Arntre.
