In his home country of Mexico, Toy Selectah might be best known for heading up the hip-hop group Control Machete, but his musical resume stretches far beyond that. And for anyone reading this who's been wanting to get their hands on a grip of tropical music, Toy's latest project, Mex More, should suffice.
The album, which is available through the Mad Decent blog, is a collection of 12 remixes Toy made, including re-workings of Santigold (formerly Santogold), Chromeo, Boys Noize, Devendra Banhart, and Justice. He covers a rather wide range of musical styles here, turning tracks into reggaeton, cumbia, club, and rock numbers, thusly proving his musical chops. Mad Decent is giving the entire thing away as a free download, so get thee to the label's site right now.
