Premiere: Buraka Som Sistema's J-WOW & Toy Selectah, "Mo'chaxo" MP3

In yesterday's Ghetto Palms column, Eddie Stats had a very interesting conversation with Ghetto Bassquake purveyors Vamanos and Chief Boima about the direction of tropical music—and what "tropical" even means. Said Vamanos: "To me, it’s kind of irrelevant that a baile funk producer makes a kuduro-inspired beat, or a kid from Switzerland makes a soca track. It’s just always good to hear something progressive and original and then selecting the wheat from the chaff." Today, we've got a great example of the wheat: Lisbon's J-WOW and Monterrey's Toy Selectah hybridize their styles on "Mo'chaxo," a track that waxes with kuduro's pitchy bleats and wanes with cumbia's loping shuffle, a humid union that could indeed be called tropical in the most literal sense. The song's from Hard-Ass Sessions Vol. 3, a series on J-WOW's Enchufada imprint encouraging producers to re-interpret kuduro through the lens of their own experiences, and this edition is as juicy as the past two, with new songs from up and coming producers Mele, Oliver Twizt, Wildlife and Rockid. Hear a video stream of Wildlife!'s song on the comp after the jump. Hard-Ass Vol. 3 is out September 7.
