Secret’s out: if you want a direct pipeline to the perreo hits of the moment (with free download options!), better run your way over to DJ Lobo of La Mega 97.9’s Soundcloud page–he’s got some pretty sweet remixes over there. Lobo, not one to miss any essentials from the summer, uploaded a breezy, DJ-friendly remix of boricua artist Cosculluela‘s “Baby Boo” this week, featuring King Daddy himself, as well as Arcangel and Wisin bringing reggaeton back to the island. The original track dropping earlier this spring.

In #perreonews, we can’t help but notice Colombian reggaeton quickly edging its way to the forefront. Consider the hot streak of artists like J Balvin, who just this week released his new soca-inflected single “Ginza,” as well as his admirable decision to step down from performing at Trump’s Miss USA Performance to instead headline the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles.

And for the truly obsesionados, take a minute to download the DJ Lobo app (available for Android) and keep those mixtapes on repeat.
