MIXTAPE: Un Poquito de Esto y Aquello
Nobody in the whole ZZK family is as prone to extreme experimentation as the Frikstailers. Those guys simply have no limits, they’ll grab samples from pretty much any music style out there, tweak them and mutilate them in the most imaginative of manners. Hence, when putting together a mixtape, Frikstailers will for sure surprise us with their odd selections. No clichés, no common places, no radio-friendly tunes.
Sure, the set has a little bit of ñu-cumbia by the likes of label-mates El Remolón and Tremor, Mexico’s Sonido Desconocido II and genre pioneer Dick El Demasiado. After all, they became known worldwide as part of that scene, even if only a couple of their tracks fall under that denomination. So it’d wrong to expect them to stick to that genre when mixing a DJ set, these guys go way beyond ñu-cumbia, even way beyond the electropical or tropical bass umbrella term.
All you can do, when confronted with a Frikstailers mixtape, is expect the unexpected, leave all your preconceptions behind and listen with an open mind while they take you in a friki trip to the unknown.
