When it comes to tropical Latin dance music, there are few people who’s ear I trust more than DJ Darwin’s. He’s had his brain wrapped around this quasi cumbia resurgence mania before it even happened and is in tight with the crew at ZZK Records down in Buenos Aires. Having brought the label head from ZZK and a few of their flagship artists to Seattle before, its no surprise that he’s helping to bring Frikstailers (pronounced Freak Stylers) to Seattle as well this Wednesday, September 29 at Nectar. The Argentinian duo just dropped a legitimate banger of a mixtape called Bicho de Luz earlier this month and promise to bring some serious energy when they hit Nectar in two days. Their style touches on amped up IDM-infused cumbia, kurduro, house, dancehall, techno and anything else that goes hard. Be sure to dive into their brand new ZZK mixtape which is linked below for your enjoyment, and the Bicho de Luz as well. We like to specialize in mixtapes, so we’ve got your covered.
