DJ Negro "Sabor a Gaita"
The seventh proper release to come from the Latin-loving dance label Bersa Discos (an imprint co-owned by XLR8R's Shawn Reynaldo) is a split 12" featuring Buenos Aires producer DJ Negro and Montreal reggaeton experimentalist El Nosotros. Here, we have one of the tracks from the former's contribution, the crushing electronic cumbia of "Sabor a Gaita." DJ Negro's slow-grooving production is big in all senses of the word; its punchy bass and beats are wide and bulbous, its energetic accordion melody reaches high for the rafters, and despite only clocking in around three and a half minutes, the track feels like a lengthy journey through tropical dancefloor sounds. This reinvigorated version of Andres Landero's vintage "Sabor a Gaita" is just one fine example of the different kinds of next-level Latin beats featured on the limited-edition Bersa Discos #7, which you can preview and order your own copy of here.
