Album Review

Frikstailers – “En Son De Paz” – [Waxploitation]

Dianthus   3/18/2013   A Library, CD

The Frikstailers hail from Buenos Aires, Argentina and you can hear some of their South American influences ring through on their latest release from ZZK records. Flavors of cumbia, moombahton, bachata and experimental knob turning swirl through this hip shaking electronic beatscape. “Los Originiarios” sends you on a safari through the bassfields of dubstep and “Hazlo tu Mizmo” (Do it yourself) grinds it out as Boogat slaps out rap lyrics in spanish tongue. I enjoy “Cumbianchamuyo” which sprinkles catchy keyboard licks over cumbia kicks, but you may love “Dem Can’t Stop We From Talk” for its dancehall stomps and vocals from Anthony B. Some of the tracks can be a little too flutey, but I cannot deny Frikstailers ability to incorporate latin instruments with freaky dance music to make the party keep on dancing.
