All right - Sorry if you've been back and forth a few times to find no updates recently. My seasonal depression has started to kick in, as has a bitter taste in my mouth. #wikileaks, what?
No, but honestly Damn Zun is not a political force or movement. We are unbiased, fair, and answer to no higher calling but great music. But mixed somewhere in the leaks was a track Munchi did - his take on mambo urbano:
Munchi - Damu Mambo / Mambo Chipi EP by Munchi
..and like THAT it was gone! Snatched out of the net by CIA & FBI special agents. I may have a copy. Watch for #munchileaks..
No, but seriously the track was "eh". No disrespect, it was just too agressive/dissonant for my likings. And who am I? No one. I don't have a iPhone commercial - yet. But when I saw Diplo a few weeks back he opened up his NYC corporate event set with about 4 straight Munchi tracks, so BOOM. And check out this brand new remix snippet from a beautiful Lido Pimienta original. It's a great, smooth, downtempo, cumbia digital number:
Lido Pimienta - Humano (Munchi Is Feeling Quite Zen At The Moment Bootleg Rmx) by Munchi
Now, this track below leaked officially via Dutty Artz and their New York Tropical release just last month:
La Ola Criminal - Sin Gas NEW YORK TROPICAL by LA OLA CRIMINAL
which I highlighted, along with this new remix from Spain's MENEO over @generationbass as part of a new feature I'm going to be starting over there so check out that link.
Dover - Dannayá (Meneo Remix) by MENEO
And for what Paul Devro and the MD intern (man I'm name dropping today), think about mambo and what's movin in the DR right now, check out their roundup: Dominican Bundle
Either way, I'm pushing for more Mambo in 2011, whether it's the real deal from DR or experimental 808 club sh*t from San Juan, Spain, or Brooklyn. Now back to reading secret documents, I mean, shredding my own classified things
