Boomkat Product Review:
Mad Decent hybrid styles from bona fide modern Latin legend, Toy Selectah. As an A&R figure at Universal's Machete Music sublabel, this guy set up for the 9 x platinum-selling act Control Machete outta Monterrey, Mexico and has been requested for remix and production work by the likes of Morrisey, Manu Chao and Vampire Weekend. He shares the party with us over four tracks, from the 150bpm scuttler 'La Ravertona' to the accordion-driven Cumbia 'Ani Riddim' featuring Mumdance or the steamy slow 'Sonidero Compay' featuring renowned reggaeton king DJ Blass. Our faves have to be the wickedly shuffled 'El Sabanero Raver' or Sheeqo Beat's remix of 'Sonidero Compay', representing for the Monterrey's 3Ball style "a genre spawned out of the amazing Mexican electro-teen-emo scene" - we're going to have to check that!!!
