While global bass may not exactly enjoy the same high-profile status it once did within the realm of underground electronic music, there are still many quality producers, DJs, and labels exploring the hybrid possibilities of electronic-minded Latin and tropical dance music. Uproot Andy is one such artist still pushing the boundaries, and with his monthly Que Bajo?! party now in its fifth year, Andy and partner Geko Jones have decided to launch their own imprint under the same name in an attempt to "share the sound of the party with a global audience." To spread word of Que Bajo?!'s new label endeavor, Uproot Andy has put together an hour-long mix consisting mostly of his own remixes for the imprint's forthcoming efforts, most of which are said to eventually see a free release via Que Bajo?!'s website in the coming months. The introductory Worldwide Ting mixtape can be streamed and downloaded via the player below; the mix's full tracklist has been included below as well.
