Banana Clipz "Afro Latino feat. Los Rakas"
One week away from releasing their debut self-titled EP as a free download, Oro11 (of the Bersa Discos imprint) and Cheif Boima (of the Ghetto Bassquake blog) give us this early taste of their collaborative production work as Banana Clipz. Most of the bass-centric, tropically inspired dance jams on the Banana Clipz EP feature vocal contributions from a wide cast of MCs and singers, including the fellas of Los Rakas, heard here on the energetic "Afro Latino." While Oro11 and Boima work out their bouncing 808 riddims and red-hot equatorial instrumentation, Los Rakas spit equally incendiary verbiage with a relaxed fervor indicative of the tune's overall vibe. You can nab Banana Clipz's whole seven-track release when it's posted online on November 29, but if you can't wait, head over to the Ghetto Bassquake blog and check out a teaser mix Boima made for the EP, here.
