Record Label Spotlight: ZZK Records

The Argentinian ZZK (pronounced zizek) Records is comprised of a collective of artists that are producing a new sound called “Electro Cumbia” and include names such as Chancha Via Circuito and Fauna. The resulting genre is a strange, but appealing intersection of old and new sounds. Equally striking is ZZK’s aesthetic, which combines neon colors with traditional patterns. Here is Mati Zundel’s “Señor Montecostes” (NSFV) off his debut album Amazonico Gravitante:

BIG DOG RIDDIM MIX

Pretty much everything that Assassin touches the past few years has been quality, especially now that his Boardhouse Records label is putting out tunes.  This Tony ‘CD’ Kelly remix of the old “Mad Dog” riddim from John John has Assassin, Twin of Twins, Beenie, Voicemail, Wash Belly, and Mr. Vegas, among others..

Newcomer Lady Ali really kills this riddim with her tune “New Style” at 7:10.
