Sonora "Paraiso (Mexicans With Guns Remix)"
Just about two months ago, we gave you the heads up about San Antonio, TX, producer Sonora and his downloadable Siempre Fresco EP for the Austin-based party/blog/label Peligrosa. Now, we have a choice remix of one of those five tunes by the producer's friend and fellow San Antonian Mexicans With Guns (pictured above). MWG's booming rework of "Paraiso" grabs the cumbia- and reggaeton-inspired rhythms and equatorial sound palette of the original track and, after a slow build, wraps them around his own staples: eye-rattling 808 kicks, filthy low-end undulations, and a club-ready swagger. Maybe it's because of their southern roots, but this pairing of the two producers shows us that Texas may have a thing or two to teach the world about sweltering Latin party music.
