Does Colombia have an equivalent to Nueva York's ESG? If not, Isa GT (now residing in London) and Dutch Rhythm Combo might need to apply with this track's minimal discofunk rhythms and cool-but-not-too-cool vocals. Isa has been DJing amazing bass and tropical music around the UK and Colombia for awhile now, and Girlcore, her crew of lady DJs, has a residency at famed club Ministry of Sound. But Isa could easily cross over as a sultry, super aloof vocalist if she keeps doing quirky little joints like this one. Tune in to East Village Radio this Friday to learn more—Isa will be guest DJing on our show the Let Out and we'll be interviewing her about the British club landscape, the increasing influence of tropical on other genres of dance music, and other scintillating topics.
