El Fuerte

A few weeks ago Rupture was quite rightly bemoaning the lack of coverage the Cosmopolatino media were giving to the man with the world’s greatest voice, Omega. How things change in a short period of time as here he is co-hosting Alex Sensation’s weekly top 5 tropical countdown. It’s good to see Don Omar’s Danza […]

Salsa Explosion

After 2 months in Brazil, a failed attempt at reading Caetano Veloso’s Verdade Tropical and far too many Reais spent on awful technobrega cd-rs (if someone can point me in the right direction please do) I’m back in Colombia where wherever you go and whoever you speak there’s a comforting love of all things Salsa.

Mr and Mrs Vamanos

There are tearful eyes all over England tonight and it’s nothing to do with a certain football result i feel i played a part in, it’s because of the news that tomorrow Vamanos’ days as a rum-drinking man about town are officially over.

Not being unpatriotic but I promised myself that for the World Cup i’d always support the African team first. Things aren’t looking too promising at the moment for the African nations so Algeria will definitely need my support against England tomorrow. If anyone can inspire Algeria surely it’s Cheb Khaled Cheb Khaled – La Camel […]

Now not only can we hear it whilst we watch England fail miserably in the World Cup we can be treated to its joys whilst listening to […]

DJS Pareja

Comeme’s awesome DJS Pareja have served up a fine mix of afro-electro, uk funky, schaffel techno and Tom Tom Club remixes before finishing it off with one of my top two techno tracks of the year so far (MMM’s Nous Sommes) over at Del Jardin Latino. Download the mix here and for those of you […]

Two years after everyone’s favourite angsty basshead Kode9 deplored “fashionable tropical music” (in Plan B i think but if anyone can send us a link to the interview it would be muchly appreciated) he continues to lighten up and to dip his toes into some warm tropical waters. K7 are giving away a free download […]

Esta ciudad es una ciudad fantasma

Everyone knows the clubbing situation in Buenos Aires has been harsh in the last few years. Although it gave us the awesomeness of the BumBumBox/Comeme crew, once winter hits we can’t be expecting them to play us DJ sets in the park where Ron Hardy tracks are mixed with Peruvian Chica every weekend. The awesome […]
