I’m well aware that I’m horny for remixes, esp. them juked out, cranked up ones. But sometimes there’s not a need for one. Tempz ‘Next Hype’ for example, the original is way better than the remix EP that finally landed last month on No hats – No hoods. And pretty much the same goes for the freshest and newest act of out Mad Decent: Maluca’s debut single ‘El Tigeraso’.
The original (a straight up NY merengue-influenced summer smash, produced by none other than… yeah Diplo) swept me off my feet and them remixes that can be found on the freshly released EP (buy it via TTL) have almost no function at all.
Perhaps I feel this way just cause I’m madly disappointed by DJ Gant Man’s Juke Remix. Summer and juke goes hand in hand for me and I had much higher hopes for it since I rank Gant Man pretty high. Can’t say that I’m cheering loudly for them other remixes from Feadz, NGUZUNGUZU etc. either. Or well, that Sticky K remix is pretty dope from 00:47 and forward. Dunno what it is, it’s just fucked up, like late night with SMK or something. Some of u might like that Sabbo remix as well I nicked from Attorney St.
Blabla, remixes aside, can’t wait ’til I hear more from Maluca!
