Contakt & Mayster "Korak (Matt Shadetek 3Ball NYC Remix)"
Two of the mixmasters behind the monthly Brooklyn-based and XLR8R-sponsored TURRBOTAX® party, Contakt and Mayster, have a joint EP ready to drop via NYC world-bass hub Dutty Artz on August 23. The four-track release includes two originals, a remix by Doc Daneeka, and this massive effort by Dutty Artz label head Matt Shadetek, who puts his own spin on Mexico's tribal guarachero sound and builds upon the punchy bounce of "Korak" with an extra-large helping of pattering percussion and other tropical sounds.
