El Remolón "Estilo Acapulco (feat. Boogat)"
This new jam off of ZZK acolyte El Remolón's forthcoming EP, Pangeatico, kicks off sounding something like a Latin-flavored LCD Soundsystem; the thick bassline bounces slowly, funky synth stabs hop around the percussion elements, and a simple hi-hat-heavy beat carries the whole tune. But after the minute-long intro, guest vocalist Boogat's fiery Spanish vocal comes in, and it's made abundantly clear this is a tune straight from the Southern Hemisphere. Hopefully you can catch El Remolón playing this track on tour in North America—along with Tremor, Chancha via Circuito, and El G—after his Pangeatico is released July 20.
