Let’s Get Tropical: Start Smooth, And Finish Strong.

This week Let’s Get Tropical is going to start smooth, and finish strong.

Starting in smoothly, our first composition is a Tango from Intended Immigration; laced with house vibes, and silky soft.  Basically, Your dinner party needs this jam.  You can thank Wooden Hat Records later…

Next is a Champeta number fom the homey K.E.N. (Kinky Electric Noise), that is most definitely a suitable second course.

Have I mentioned that I love Dancehall?  Because check this one out.  It rides the line between smooth and strong so nicely, as it does the line between Zouk and Dancehall.  Thank you, DJ Dac!  Your Tropical Bass is served.

K.  Turn it up to 11 and hold onto something, it’s time for something stronger.  Fourth on deck is an emerging genre called Jungle Terror, that will wake up your babies, and rock that cradle right out of its tree top.  Perrigon killed it!

2 smooth, 1 transition, 2 strong songs to finish.  Sound fair?  Shout out to all the Caballeros out there!

A-Trak and Lex Luger present Low Pros E.P (Direct Download)

ep1_500Fool’s Gold captain and DJ icon A-Trak kicked off 2014 by dropping some of the most exciting and unexpected collaborations in music, from Duck Sauce‘s acclaimed album Quack to the highly anticipated Federal Reserve project with Cam’ron. Yet his boldest team up to date may just be Low Pros, a bass extravaganza helmed by Trizzy and Lex Luger, the elusive producer behind genre-defining tracks for Waka FlockaJuicy JRick Ross & more. 

The two linked in Atlanta for non-stop recording sessions with fellow producers Metro Boomin (Future, YG), High Klassified (Fool’s Gold) and Brillz, enlisting everyone from new-school superstar Young Thug to dirty south legend Juvenile to add their magic to the mix. The resulting EP takes the trap sound Lex literally invented into outer space, raising the bar for hip-hop and electronic producers alike. 




Hip-Hop’s rising legends, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke (TNGHT), hit the world with another left side tune. The song starts off with an eery, toy box melody, that sets up the twisted atmosphere. The progression, while incorporating old-school synths, takes listeners to a dream like state where a psychotic ringleader is conducting a circus night at a madhouse. This track will definitely make noise at the festivals to come in the following months. Make sure to grab a copy of Acrylics out now on ITUNES.
