In its original version, “Es-Toy” was built around cumbia and regional mexican samples, and it was already a club banger (for all my vinyl junkies out there, Nacional Records released it in limited edition flexi-disc!).
For this remix, the electro trio Wagoner took an odd approach, adding some hard hitting, layered synths that as a result resemble heavy-metal guitars (or at least some good ol’ Prodigy). They pretty much left the vocals the same and the cumbia loops don’t show up until the second half.
We’ve introduced them already, but in case you need a reminder Wagoner is the newest project by Kay who is also part of NSM PSM. He has toured for a while as part of the M.I.S. band and has also remixed Camilo Lara‘s music in the past. So it makes sense that they got to be among the firsts to drop an M.I.S. official remix off the new album Político. I predict plenty more remixes of this track to come in the near future, but probably none will sound so loud and powerful as this one.
