Bermuda Triangle bass king Otto Von Schirach is ready to release more music on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records. His digital single Tipo Tropical (featuring a synth line from Nayib Estefan & Pepe Billete) comes out on April 18th with La Plancha as the B-side. Read some words from Monkeytown about the track below, and preorder both here.
“This record has such a strong visual content, that even when listening to it on bad speakers you will hallucinate pictures of parrots, birds of paradise and other likewise vivid tropical creatures. Miami’s Supermeng mixes beautifully sculpted bass drums with classical 808 hi-hats to shape this crazy sound on top of which he raps and sings in his very own interpretation of Spanglish. It sounds like Sancho Panza with Goldchains on a beach with lots of girls, dinosaurs and multicolored bubbly in a magnum bottle.”
If you didn’t get to hear this wicked record in Juan BassHead’s sets during WMC/MMW, this Saturday at The Stage is your chance! Otto wants you to “come dressed Miami” for his party with performances by the Supermeng himself, Poison Clan’s JT Money, Basside, plus a booty contest hosted by 2 Live Crew’s Brother Marquis! See you on the dancefloor!
