Niko Bellotto feat. Naile Sosa – Barasuayo – Afroterraneo

It’s hard not to fall in love with these temptingly, smoky grooves as Naile Sosa’s vocals weave in and out of the pulsating, percussive rhythms which accompany them. New on Kiko Navarro’s imprint this aptly falls under a summertime release with remixes appearing from a contrasting John Beltran who lifts the instrumentation with jazzier notation alongside addictive, shuffling afro-styled snares. And also from Kiko himself aka KOKI who’s Beatapella version reveals a wealth of fantastic drumming amid a rich, warm harmony of voices.

Release: June 8


Chasing Kurt – Cloud Dancer (The Remixes) – Peppermint Jam Records

An outstanding piece of work from Kiko Navarro who we haven’t been featuring enough of but has certainly stamped his impression all over this great vocal from Chasing Kurt’s Lukas, who together with together with DJ & producer Wojtek have produced the soulfully resonating original. Shuffling percussion, hints of punctuation via the crafted synth stabs plus the sense of building intensity all score high on his remix, while underscoring the impassioned vocal delivery perfectly. 6th Borough Project then lend their distinctive flavour to three versions including a standout Percapella for obvious reasons.
