MAN 085 BERT ON BEATS - HIGH ON CUICA

BOB_HighOnCuica_shops_1200x

Carramba, Bert On Beats is back! After his last release on Man Rec featuring the might baile funk queen Deize Tigrona (“Pa Pa Pa”) Bert toured Europe and collaborated with Branko of Enchufada on “Control” ft. Yadi. Now he returns to Man Recordings with a club ready burner that wacks out any Jumpstyle tune the Latin way.

Bert´s big new tune is called “High On Cuica” and it truly lifts everyone up. Who needs formulaic EDM drumrolls when the whip of a plain ol´Cuica can create the same buzz? Fed by a 3Ball reminicing percussion frenzy and an irresistible melody, “High On Cuica” makes clear that triplet grooves are here to stay and can rock any party any-other-way.

The original track gets remixed by a transnational crew of hot remixers. Milangeles spice up the melody with an Italian ghetto twist, Happy Colors remade “High On Cuica” into a hi-speed Merenge mix which at 192bpm is the fastest remix ever released on Man Rec, there´s French-Portuguese bass mechanic Mala Noche, who made a very individualist, arabic-melody-led downtempo version, and then there´s Brasils Pesadão Tropical which lays the Cuica down low in their trap remix. Four crazy remixes and a banging original – this tune is made for every twisted Latin party and freestyle dancefloors! Early DJ support from Munchi, Schlachthofbronx, So Shifty, Dave Nada, JStar and many more.

BANDA WESTFALICA - K LE PASA (CROOKED BOIS REMIX)

Some remixes have a long life. Such is the case with the Crooked Bois remix for Banda Westfalica´s “K Le Pasa”. In spring 2014 we kicked off a remix contest for the great acoustic version of “K Le Pasa”. We received dozens of submissions. The Crooked Bois remix was one of favourites but didnt made it to the final winners. After the Zouk Bass inspired version was uploaded to the Crooked Bois Soundcloud page, the remix began to circulate widely and recently even appeared in a mix by Buraka Som Sistema´s Branko. It´s time to highlight the mix again, it´s available as free download from below.
