Mediopicky has been cooking up a dancing storm in the Dominican Republic with freaking genius tropitronica remixes of Adrianigual, Daft Punk, M83, and Bloodhound Gang, to name a few. In a short time, he’s managed to become one of the hottest producers on the scene with his own tropical bass tracks, and just yesterday he dropped “La Ola,” a moombahton banger with the always-fabulous Cristabel Acevedo, one half of indie darlings Las Acevedo.
I never thought I would hear either of the Acevedo sisters singing on a tropical bass track, yet Cristabel’s sweet, melodious voice is right at home in “La Ola,” a track that features Mediopicky’s signature mix of dembow and moombahton booty-shaking beats. The song is incredibly innocent, with Cristabel singing about a day at the beach with a love interest and Mediopicky giving the story a dancehall-ish beach party soundtrack. He also adds some sugar-pop synth lines and timely scratching to make you jump up and down. It’s, hands down, one of the most fun, most dance-floor-worthy tracks I’ve heard all summer.
The song is the first single off his soon-to-be-released EP, Cantinas, out on September 15th. If you can’t wait until then, check out his remixes for Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” with Colombian producer Caballo, and Adrianigual’s “Arde Santiago.” Trust me, you won’t regret it.
