After almost a year of work, New York Tropical is finally hitting digital shops today, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. 12 dope tracks, almost all unreleased, and styles from Funky to Cumbia with a little bit of ambient/Rupture in between for the subway ride home.  If you didn’t already pick up the ringtone (.mp3 and iphone compatible) edit of the album- grab it– I highly recommend DJ Orion’s Undertow Inst for early morning wake ups.  Expect a few tracks to start leaking out into the internet and a new mix from me next week.

Until then, grab a copy
