Here at the Enchufada headquarters we want you to always be in the loop on what our artists are up to. However, that’s not enough. There’s also a big group of people who we lovingly call our “extended family”, a talented group of musicians, producers and remixers who we met, worked and partied with along the years, and are constantly putting out quality material that we just need to share with the world. That’s why we’re starting this brand new All In The Family column, where we bring you a bunch of cool musical suggestions to keep you posted on what the guys and girls of the Enchufada universe are cooking in their studios.
Bill Salas aka Brenmar should need no introduction by now. This amazing Chicago-born beatmaker has been wowing crowds and press alike with his unpredictable and colorful blend of hip-hop, bass music and all sorts of electronic beats, making him one of the stand-out artists in this crazy mutant world of bass-centric club music. He entered the Enchufada family back in 2011 when we released the ‘Hard Ass Sessions Volume VI’ with his track Waiting On, but he’s been keeping himself ultra-busy ever since. Case in point is this brand new remix for R&B icon Justin Timberlake‘s 2006 Beyoncé collaboration Until The End of Time, which turns the original’s smoothness into instant dancefloor action. Check it out below and wait for the free download which is coming soon.
Next up we have Portuguese powerhouse DJ Manaia, half of the Zombies For Money outfit, who were responsible for the heavyweight track Me Toca Só on the 2010 Enchufada release ‘Hard Ass Sessions Volume II’. Their ‘anything goes’ approach to electronic dance music has taken them around the world and back again, and after releasing stuff on labels such as Trouble & Bass and No Brainer they’re taking their time to work on some solo stuff. Dj Manaia‘s new solo material is the loud ‘Bairro EP’, a free Breaks Lda. release featuring collaborations with Portuguese artists MC Ex-Peão and Santo Ovídeo Grime and the young moombah lover King Kong on the remix. Check it out below and don’t forget you can download it for free.
Speaking about King Kong, the young Lisbon producer keeps surprising us with his mellow and romantic approach to the slow tropical moombah rhythms. The last offering from this prolific producer is called U Make Me and it’s a track he made to celebrate his own birthday, featuring all the trademark King Kong sounds such as those dreamy pads, sliced-up soulful vocals and straightforward booty-shaking beats. So pick up your phone, make your booty calls, light a few candles and play this song and we guarantee you’ll have a great night.
Last but not least we have a new mixtape by American powerhouse Dubbel Dutch, who you may have heard on the 2010 Enchufada release ‘Hard Ass Sessions Volume IV’ with the track Dead Pool. Right now he’s getting ready to release a new single called Self Help Riddim, and to get us all pumped up for he just gave away the awesome Self Help Minimix, composed almost exclusively by his own original tracks and several remixes. Have a listen to the selections of Dubbel Dutch below and remember you’re free to download it as well!
