La Jam Del Dia: Erykah Badu: Cleva (Captain Planet’s Smarter Samba Mix)
DCs drowning in some drab cloudiness…and I can’t think of a better jam to bust outa this doom-gloom cubicle than whippin’ out my emergency samba whistle and shimmaying out of this oficina bumpin’ Erykah Badu - Cleva (Captain Planet’s Smarter Samba Mix). Captain Planet sprinkles a package of Sazón all over Erykah Badu’s magic and I’m lickin that plate clean. Ricasso.
El Proyecto Del Dia: Stop Motion Cambalacha by Rukula ft. DJ Rupture
El Lago Atitlán de Guate is a magical place. In Mayan cosmovisión, this volcanic lago is considered the umbilical cord linking the cosmos to the tierra. The culture and lifestyle can be pretty divino but the sewage, waste and water cycling through the unfiltered lake keep us grounded in the contemporary terrestrial realities. This Jam/Video/Youth-driven collabo sends out some buenas vibras-kinda like Guate Canicula’s sun-filled days showing face in the drab depths of the rainy season.
LA JAM DEL DIA: Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco do Ilê: Superhuman Happiness + Cults
YoRona’s busting outa the cubicle…for a week…out west…communicating with Roswellian aliens …reconnecting with the Aztlan umbilical cord and slamming a machete into this digital one….Until your own summer sabbatical, here’s a gentle chillero-wave canção perfect for a mid-morning mental escape … This jam is a super lindo cover of Caetano’s already luscious song. Check Red Hot + Rio 2, banging compilation raising $$$ contra la CIDA.
LA JAM DEL DIA: João Brasil “L.O.V.E. Banana” feat. Lovefoxxx from CSS
Bananas are making a comeback. No longer the symbol of neo-colonial exploitation(at least not in the Jam-osphere) …. LOVEFOXXX from CSS straight up professes undying love in João Brasil’s sexi beat while Rita Indiana longingly yearns for it in this melodic oda a la fruta…it’s cause they’re damn good and full of medicinal properties. I hear if you eat a banana after a night of chupando…se mata la resaca…and you roll into work with a fresh face. I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow.
Just streamed Mr. Pauer’s interview at LAMC thru Remezcla and he talked up this jam. This berimbau-guitar-ridden, nintendo beat is the only consolation to being behind a compu instead of being saturated in the sonidos de LAMC….chekean this beat-mundial to kick off the weekend. Feliz Viernes!
This cumbia shake remezcla adds a lil more fuego to this Dominican mami’s already steaming sound. It’s like an upbeat melancolica jam, perfect for stimulating the unica neurona that still exists after this weekend and coping with the daily grind.
LA JAM DEL DIA: Nina Dioz vs Sonora – La Pasion (Ojos Verdes Refix by Jorgito del Barrio)
Sometimes it’s so boring in the cubicle, no drama over the phone with Photocopier scammers, no angry faxes from anti-immigration nativists…guess imma hafta delve into angsty, righteous, fem-callejera, anti-cabrón, dub-anthems for a lil action…
