The king of Gqom meets the pioneer of Flex Dance Music on a proper dancefloor bullet for Swing Ting
This one is just deadly. Those electro patterns; the punishing subs; them bolshy horns and laser stabs; it’s a stone cold essential if you ask us, or the likes of Jubilee, Tash LC and Kode 9, who’ve all given it early play.
From Bogotá via Manchestá, Florentino brings serious dancefloor heat to his Mixpak début with an anthemic, vocal-heavy set of dembow drum break mutations enhanced by signature laser-precision production and guest appearance from Barcelona’s Bad Gyal.
Building on the examples of two thrilling 12”s for Swing Ting and remixes for D∆WN and Kid Antoine, Fragments also explores personal themes of introspection, heartbreak and melancholy hinted at in those previous releases, but with a new level of arrangement and production detail that poises both the EP and Florentino for worldwide impact.
His stunning Por Ti link-up with Bad Gyal exemplifies this upswing as Florentino’s strongest vocal composition to date, while the effortlessly seductive Mentirosa catches a sublime blend of freshest reggaeton and UK-styled production more commonly heard in D&B, and the sultry 2 Late (Don’t Call) is practically a Latinate take on Ciara filtered thru nightvision goggles, with Seductora giving a proper, raved-up sting in the tail.
So damn strong. Massive tip!
