Pau y Amigos, “Buzzards (Bootlegumachine’s Vulgar Norteñito RMX)” MP3


There is a general office consensus that certain members of our staff (ahem) will be completely hypnotized by any tracks that sample nature sounds. (AHEM!) While this is not 100% true, it's impossible to deny the madcap humor of the squawking buzzards lacing their way through this bassed-out norteño cumbia remix, and the humor is the whole point, is it not? Pau, a vocalist/producer from Mexico City whose amigos comprise a music/visual arts collective, has been having a remix contest for the original, which is a pretty straightforward disco track about how buzzards are gonna outlive us all because they like to kill and you know, have feathery backs and shit. We kind of want Bootlegumachine's remix to win—it completely re-envisions the original through the lens of trad norteño/quebradita shit (the origins of which he will totally break down for you here), nestling it in nicely with the cache of new digital beats that crib from old-style/indigenous global bass. Chilling hard with these buzzards, man. (Via Generation Bass)
