Boomkat Product Review:
Anthony Naples’ Proibito births what is purportedly the first ever “deep-reggaeton” record with DJ Python’s super-slinky ¡Estéreo Bomba! EP.
Placing a uniquely anachronistic spin on current club movements and sociopolitical reality, the ¡Estéreo Bomba! EP reconnects with deep house’s latin lineage whilst also smudging distinctions between proto, vintage and modernist club musics to arrive at his own, smart conclusions.
A-side is given to the lush rhythmelodic wiggle and keening, crimson harmonics of Tranquil, which snakes across the front with slow, bustling dembow drums under a canopy of wide, woozy chords, shifting a hip from grubbing shuffle to slow house bump and back again with romantic sleight of hand. DJ Python says “this will be a huge open air record.”
The other side is given to proper deep house bent in Cuidado that really reminds us of Bodycode’s kinky depths, before Sunset Drive rolls right off the hip with elliptical subs and glancing cowbells shuffled up in acres of heady, mystic space.
