Free Download – Frikstailers – ‘Dancehallete’

Frikstailers have been making noise across the Pan-Latin-Electro scene for a few years already, having done remixes for Major Lazer and putting out releases on several other notable labels. Last year the ZZK crew from Argentina picked them up and brought them on the labels tour across North America, where their outlandish performances and costumes increased their visibility literally and figuratively. Their brand new release, Bicho de Luz, featuring todays free download, ‘Dancehallete’ has the chance to put Frikstailers in another category far removed from being just another neon clad Cumbia outfit. There are certainly elements of Cumbia, Dancehall, and electro in their productions but this release is vast in scope and never feels gimmicky. Bicho de Luz is that rare electronic release that will resonate with you on the dancefloor, at your desk while at work, and on your headphones, it sounds like Four Tet stepped into a jungle cantina with a wicked percussionist and found a casio laced with peyote. I have a feeling Frikstailers will be around a lot longer than the current electro-Cumbia fad has come and gone, continuing to push their sound in a forward and fun trajectory.
