Bomba Estéreo "Fuego (Frikstailers Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
A few weeks back, we previewed Bicho de Luz, the new EP from Argentina's Frikstailers. Part of the ZZK collective, the duo (pictured above) is currently in the midst of its first North American tour (click for dates and venues), making a stop tonight in San Francisco. To help get us Bay Area folk amped for the show, they've donated this remix of "Fuego" by Colombian outfit Bomba Estéreo. The original has been an anthem on forward-thinking Latin dancefloors for a while now, but the Frikstailers have put a nice twist on it, warming things up with their trademark microsamples and synth stabs before kicking into a banging reggaeton beat. After tonight, the boys will be making stops in LA, Seattle, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh, and Boston—if you're in one of those cities, just put the show on your to-do list.
