SWEET ELECTRA –
“LOVE YOU MORE”

We’re doing a remix contest of this track here in Remezcla! The winning version of “Love You More” will be chosen and distributed by the band, with potential airplay on the radio in Mexico!. Read more about the contest here.
BROWNOUT – “OLVIDALO”
Psychedelic Latin funk courtesy of members of the Grammy-nominated band Grupo Fantasma, Brownout just released Homenaje last year, and are at it again. The Austin ensemble play use a lot of percussion and electric guitar in this mostly instrumental project; brand new album Aguilas and Cobras (Six Degrees Records, out Sep 15th) features vocals by members of White Denim and Hacienda.
Conjuring James Brown and Malo, Brownout is embarking on a US tour promoting Aguilas, coming to a city near you!
EL CHINO DREADLION –
“VIVIR SIN TI”
Formerly of Yerba Buena with Cucu Diamantes, Xiomara Laugart et al, this Cuban dancer, choreographer and singer is finally releasing his solo debut album, No Hay Mal Que Por Bien No Venga. Based in Miami, where he also performs with the group Cubiche, el Chino’s music is a mix of Afro-Cuban elements, reggae, son, y…mucho mas chiquitico.
Not everything is irie and beach life in El Chino Dreadlion’s musical universe, however. “Vivir Sin Ti” is a salsa song dipped in melancholy.
PALENKE SOULTRIBE –
“NO VOY A MORIR”
Based in Los Angeles, producers J. Borda and Popa mix traditional beats from their native Colombia with modern electronic music. On stage, their laptops play alongside live percussion and animated visual elements. Palenke’s buzz keeps growing especially now that their new album, Oro, was just released this summer and have an appearance on KCRW on September 10th.
Similar to a Colombian version of Nortec Collective, with the folky and the techie side by side.”No Voy a Morir,” the first single from Oro, features Natasha Perez and Fernanda Karolys on vocals.
