After a whirlwind year of gigs around the globe as well as a stash of fresh remixes and refixes. Florentino follows up his highly acclaimed debut release ‘Tu y Yo’ with a raw, darkside two-tracker strictly for the club heads, via the Swing Ting imprint.
‘Bloodline’ is an uncompromising signature slab of Colombia-meets-UK ruffness with warped vox chops, tough driving dembow drum patterns, and a brash, badman hornline paying tribute to an underground reggaeton riddim. The blissed out breakdown midway through allows for a brief respite before the brass and sirens take over for the spirited final march.
On ‘Sientelo’ Florentino flips the script (if one exists in 2016) upping the tempo to deliver a slice of Latin-American carnival revelry in the guise of a high-energy percussive workout built to shell any function. Tight drum fills, rolls & edits collide with airhorns, whistles and chanting vocals for a ride like no other!
The EP artwork is a creation from artist Seedy. Who is notably known for his Gang Fatale art.
