Jorge Cruz of Trax Records/Weare18 fame drops a mixtape of all out cumbia and this is our go to mix for a depressing Monday morning.

“I was supposed to be in el DF but instead I decided to move to L.A. I can’t help but to yearn for those nights out, getting off to go to Amberes to that little club in the afternoon.

I miss dancing with a crowd. I miss those afternoons. I miss dancing on the streets while my grandma sat and watched.

For now this little slice will have to suffice. It’s not the same. Pero — ahi vamos.”

Vilnius based producer Boyfriend remixed the track “Spirits Rising” which is the new single from legendary US producer Todd Terry’s collaboration with Screamin’ Rachael and the track is the lead single off of Screamin’ Rachael’s upcoming EP “U-DO” which will be released later this summer via Chicago label Trax Records. The track originally began as an unofficial remix where Rachael sang on top of Todd Terry’s “Sume Sigh Sae” off the “Gypsyland” album but what had originally begun as a session between Jorge and Rachael in Saint Louis’ Central West End eventually led to an official reworking, and signed off by Todd Terry himself.

Boyfriend steps up with a subdued, moombahtonesque sounding beat that eases us into super humid summer mode.
