sqzmylmns.


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)

Props is definitely due... It's dope that someone is finally doing quality electro in San Diego. Nice work Fellas --- We're proud of you!! (and for the record, chorizo is legit, but SOYRIZO is where it's really at with black beans, of course)

sam said...

meat is murder.

That is some rancid chorizo.
