Sonido Rampage y Nader "If You Leave"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Hot on the heels on Nadastrom's free moombahton EP comes another batch of low-end Latin bounce, this time from Windy City duo Sonido Rampage y Nader. Rampage is part of the Ghetto Division crew—the same one that did that amazing Chicago podcast for us a few months back—but on this project with Nader he's taking a break from blaring bass and new-school house to focus on slower tempos and sexier sounds. Their 6-song release is called The Cornflake y Platano EP, and it's available for free download on their Soundcloud along with some similarly banging remixes of French Fries, Zombies for Money, and Bassjackers. Frankly, just about every track is a winner, but "If You Leave" is especially good with its diva-ish vocals, subtle synth stabs, and thick, loping beats. It's cumbia meets reggaeton meets Chicago house. Sign us up for an extra-large helping.
