Frikstailers "Baile Frik"
Argentinian duo Frikstailers (pronounced Freak-stylers) first rose to prominence as part of Zizek, the forward-thinking Latin collective who have been turning heads with their weekly party in Buenos Aires (not to mention last summer's XLR8R podcast, which still sounds fresh months later). Apparently the bass-loving Frikstailers, who actually hail from neighboring Córdoba, managed to catch the ears of new Scottish label Revolt Into Style, which enlisted the boys for its debut release, the aptly titled Baile Frik EP.
Here on the title track, the Frikstailers energetically combine a tweaked baile funk beat with some finely chopped vocal samples and acid-tinged synth sounds. Grab the full Baile Frik EP to hear their reggaeton/cumbia remix of a tune by dancehall MC Zulu.
