I’m a pretty laid back guy, but when I listen to this kind of music, it really makes me wanna go out and punch somebody in the effing face. Like right now, there’s some dude playing a bagpipe in the park next to my house. He actually woke me up with that annoying sound! I decided I’d be civilized and ignore him, so I turned my stereo up louder. I played Pedro Infame’s new digital EP in its entirety and it charged me with so much rage that by the end of it I was already punching the walls with my bare knuckles, and then when it actually stopped, I found out that the bagpipe dude was still out there, proudly sporting his kilt, and playing the “Yankee Doodle” tune. I had almost forgotten about him, and now I’m so furious I want to open the window and throw my computer’s monitor over his head. I really want to see him bleed.
Pedro Infame’s music has this effect on me every time. There’s so much uninhibited testosterone on his hard-hitting techno, that instead of going dancing, his music inspires me to rip my t-shirt off and jump into a Slayer concert’s moshpit. That’s why his Bruce-Willis-meets-Andrew-WK photo is so befitting.
The Venezuelan-by-way-of-Mexico is the most extreme representation of the Tropic-All collective and his style is arguably the most unique, too. The Tropical Incineration is the title of this brand new collection of bastard remixes, where he takes on classics like Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “I Like Big Butts” or Gerardo’s “Rico Suave” in the most irreverent way imaginable, and he doesn’t even care if on the way, he annoys the hell outta the snobby techno purists.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, go ahead and download it, it’s FREE. I’m gonna go take a bubble bath and try to calm down before I kill someone.
