HiedraH Club de Baile is a night club and recurring party in Buenos Aires that counts NON Records's Moro among its regular DJs. For the first in a series of "club packs" highlighting South American producers, HiedraH Club de Baile is releasing Moro's "Ahora Es CaporalitoH," which melds a famous Puerto Rican reggaeton a capella with elements of Caporal, a style of Bolivian carnival dance music. The result is brooding yet boisterous — just the thing for the heat of a 3 a.m. dance floor.

"I've been trying to make connections between Hiedrah Club de Baile and Caporal for a while by putting Caporales in my sets, and sending emails and messages to see if there is a chance to bring Caporal producers to play at the party as well as [to] do mixtapes," Moro told The FADER over email. "This edit [is] formed by Wisin & Yandel's 'Ahora es' a capella, some of DJ Arkanto's samples and loops, and some of my own, [and it] reflects a bit of that musical connection I was trying to achieve while doing my sets."
