sure we all know mexicans are good at making chorizo tortas. we know they host a mean spring break vacation. maybe you didn't know that mexico is also cultivating a crazy dance music scene.
sqzmylmns (pronounced 'squeeze my lemons') are just one new example of mexicans making good music. saul q and kid wonder hail from my hometown of san diego, which tends to fly under the radar. so i'm excited to hear something exciting coming out of there. i love that the tracks aren't just distorted or just filtered or just heavily sampled....they mix it all up into a nice batch of freshly squeezed lemonade.......*sip*....AHHHHH.
sqzmylmns - oakland
sqzmylmns - run
this is their own remix of their newest track. determined to keep it fresh and change things up, they added real instruments over the top which is probably a good idea in preparation for the backlash against all the laptop producers.
sqzmylmns - thieves (kidwonder is disc-o remix)
so it's time for a little indulgence. now i've never quite been a fan of mashups, but i heard these two i couldn't resist posting. maybe it was the combination of the two songs in each track or the fact that i love both songs, no matter how played out they are.
crookers vs khia - my neck my knobb (sqzmylmns smashup)
don rimini vs terror squad - let me lean back up (sqzmylmns smashup)
