German duo So Shifty brings us this huge infectious summer reggaeton tune “Rude Gal” done together with vocalist Paco Mendoza (the most popular Spanish speaking singer in Germany). On the remix front we get Murlo, Atropolis, Thornato and also Chief Boima (who adds extra vocal duties from Isa GT) do their thing.
For the past decade or so, Palenque Records founder Lucas Silva has done field recordings in the town of San Basilio de Palenque of musicians such as Batata, Son Palenque, and Sexteto Tabala. To introduce this music to a wider club-going audience, Silva teamed up with Dutty Artz ambassadors Atropolis and Geko Jones to curate a compilation of remixed works of Palenquero cultural music. The partnership was initiated when Atropolis met Silva, on a trip he took to San Basilio de Palenque with his New York DJ crew Cumba Mela, and the two of them decided to collaborate on a project. Geko Jones, a regular visitor to the Northern coast of Colombia and staunch advocate for Afro-Colombian music, came on board to help curate the compilation. Together, the two reached out to the Dutty Artz extended family for their remixes, with a host of talented producers such as Captain Planet who turns in a wobbly pop banger, So Shifty who are on a hype German-soca tip, Matt Shadetek on a pensive melodic 6/8 run, and DJs Thornato and Chief Boima highlight the Congolese flavor that so inspires the Palenquero community. Geko Jones and Atropolis also submit their own productions, for an ultimate result that is a reflection of a continued cultural exchange that exists between New York and Colombia.
The So Shifty remix is up for free download for a week so be sure to get it.

Malmö producer Joel Carlsson, better known as Joelito gives us a sweatinducing banger with his kuduroesque and handclapfilled remix of the new Boogaloo single track “Xibaba”. The production duo known as Boogaloo has Portuguese roots, their first release “Mkwaju” came out on Moveltraxx a while ago and they now return with the 4 track EP “La Digue” on Austrian label Big’N’Hairy. Other remixes comes from So Shifty, Big Dope P, Cocotaxi, Tipanic, Daniel Klauser etc.
Mean Bucket is a label straight out of Prague and with their sixth release, they give us a handful of remixes that are based on the tracks from the excellent Berlin based producer/dj Tvyks EP “From Prague To Berlin”. New release “From Prague To Berlin: Remixed” features party starting takes from producers such as Chrissy Murderbot and So Shifty. We’re glad to provide you with a frantic, chopped up ghettotech styled remix of “Speed Bike” by French tag team Big Dope P & Mr Mozaphanka.
We got a brand new track from the boys in So Shifty:
“Busy recently laid these vocals over DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win”, we took the acapella and gave it a more uptempo feel, with the rhythm pattern switching between a daggering and b-more style. Goes out to all the gallists out there! Enjoy and bang this in the club.”
