Infectious rhythm marks ‘Ancient Ones’ by New York duo Street Slang as the pair return to Harry Romero’s Bambossa imprint, following up their 2022 track ‘Cheeba’ on the label. The track gets remixed by Romero, who turns the original’s organic percussion and cut-up vocal snippets into a hypnotic and wonky tribal trip.
After over two decades in the business, Harry Romero and Defected have compiled tracks from the Jersey native’s expansive career to create an eclectic and essential collection for any fans of the genre, as he joins the list of House Masters.
Harry Romero closes out Bambossa Records’ 2022 with his house single ‘The Brave’, following up Latin-infused summer track ‘Aye Papi’. Tight, electro beats give the track a retro charm as an arpeggiated bassline ebbs and flows throughout, occasionally interrupted by psychedelic synth weirdness.
Harry Romero’s new track ‘Aye Papi’ possibly has all the necessary elements to become a peak-time staple: pumping bass, swung Latin grooves, catchy piano melodies and a summer vocal. Also packaged with the release comes a handy instrumental club tool.
Louie Vega and Harry Romero collaborate for the first time with ‘El Ritmo’ landing on Bambossa Records this month. Fuelled by organic percussion and atmospherics, the track is a Latin-influenced affair - a vocal snippet raises the temperature, while a blast of heavy drums, dubby chords and rising pads add texture.
