Live from Barranquilla!

POSTED BY




I’m out here in Barranquilla Colombia for carnival, crate diggin and digi-swapage. Carnival wrapped up tuesday night in a major way. I’ll be posting video of that next but I’m taking some time out to put up this post because I promised you guys some new tunes from my bin each month, so here’s my Feb-10 5-spot

In the bag this month, Barney Iller’s version tweaked out merengue submission for the Schlachthof Bronx AYOBA remix contest. He’s got a couple more choons over at Culture System this week

Schlachthofbronx – Ayoba (Barney Iller Remix)

Hands down my favorite wiki-wiki style turntablist DJ in the tropical scene, my man DJ Reaganomics doin it up Brasileiro dancehall style. Dark and minimal, this sexy lil diddy has gotten some some telemundo forwards from the pelaitas out here.  Ask yourself mister wobble wobble, what have you played to get the gyal dem moving on the dancefloor lately?

I’m a lil late on this one but I rediscover stuff i should have been playing all the time. Teleseen is another Brooklyn based producer we check for around here. If your inna the dub stylee you should check out his album Fear of the Forest

And for my F-I-F  FIF! I’m letting you get a taste of what’s to come in my Barranquilla reports. I spent a couple hours trading tunes with the Skorpion Disco Show, one of the biggest champeta sound systems out of Barranquilla. (Boima – I got you when we link up at SXSW big homie)

These Skorpion dudes run tings! Their carnaval closing party which will be my next post involved girls with guns, 20+ foot speaker stacks, motorcycles, crowd surfing, an ill light show and a fire hose…. the video is insane but the experience of a champeta party and hearing all this african stuff touched up with drum machines is way better… dig this
