BO-PEEP’S TROPICAL BLEATS, VOL. 2

Published on October 29th, 2010

Get excited Philadelphia, it’s Friday! I’m not talking about the weekend, though. It’s just an added bonus. No, you should be excited because I’m back with another batch of Tropical bangers! You getting the jitters yet? Eh? Eh? Good, on to the tunes!

Mana Wasa (Original Mix) – Nic Sarno <- I already know what you’re thinking: “This tune is… weird.” Yes, yes it is. “But I love it!” Yes, yes you do. And what’s not to love in Italian Nic Sarno‘s fantastic Kuduro romp, with its driving drum rhythms, catchy vocal stutters, and airy fluting? Drop this right and watch the crowd go nuts — without ever realizing why. Run to Beatport, grab it and the rest of the Hardass Sessions Vol. II – EP.

Westside! (Original Mix) – Dillon Francis, DJ Ammo <- This is one of the most bangin’ Tribal House tunes of 2010. Words cannot do justice to its ridiculous levels of bass and buzzing synths. Just listen to it. There’s a reason why Major Lazer has been opening most of their live sets with it.

Hammerhead (Dub Mix) – Sharkslayer <- “Hammerhead.” I can’t think of a better name for this banger. Almost all in the low range, this is definitely a track that attacks from the deep… and does not let go once it hits. Finnish duo Sharkslayer sat on this one forever before finally breaking down and releasing it for free via their label Top Billin’. DJ’s, spring this one at the end of a lull, just before you bring the energy level back to 10. Everyone else… just blast it in your car and scare other drivers.

Percolator (Hat+Hoodie Bootleg Remix) – Cajmere <- House legend Cajmere‘s “Percolator” is a classic (seriously, from 1992!), so naturally everyone went nuts when it was announced that it was getting re-released with a brand-spanking new remix EP this year. And it was released, and it was good. But while everyone was going nuts over the Claude VonStroke and Major Lazer remixes, Danes Hat+Hoodie released their Kuduro-Dubstep fusion bootleg on their Soundcloud. And it’s awesome. It may even be my favorite. This one’s a primetime tune if there ever was one.
