Hola party people in da house aka dee office. We here at Snkrbst.com have a special treat for all of you hardworking souls. Below is a little slice of #globalbass heaven encompassing a little funk, salsa, and a lot of bass. With the revival of Fania Records, (legendary record company with well over six decades under its belt. Click here for more info.) comes the ultramodern spin to chart topping classics provided by DJs from all over the globe (hence its catchy #globalbass term). These historians of vinyl have dug hard and deep into their crates from Fania’s legendary roaster (i.e. Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Willie Colon, Ralfi Pagan, etc.) and have shot a boost of adrenaline into these archival greats. Fania has recently released a preview of what is to come via their soundcloud page tailored made to chase the “Monday Blues” away. And aside from this gift preview, is the announcement of a record release party. On March 12th, Fania will be hosting a big ol’ bash in sunny Los Angeles at El Rey theatre. Special guests in attendance: Tropkillaz from Brazil, Dengue, Dengue, Dengue from Lima-Peru, and Panamanian power duo Los Rakas from good ol’ Oakland, CA. To reserve your spot on this “Calentura” #globalbass bus, you can purchase your tickets by clicking here. Enjoy the hot tunes mi gente and don’t forget to #ThinkLikeUs.
