BERT ON BEATS - PIANO LOCO
Man 075 | March 5, 2013
After a series of heavy low-end remixes for the likes of Buraka Som Sistema, Gotan Project, Vybz Cartel and Daniel Haaksman and a collaboration with New Jersey don DJ Sliink, Bert On Beats returns to Man Recordings with a club-ready Salsa banger. For “Piano Loco“, the badboy from Tallinn, Estonia, combines spicey Latin percussion and a bubbly Salsa piano with stomping Samba drums and heavy basslines.
Zombies For Money from Lisboa create a monstrous remix by putting the percussion through a meat grinder and serving it on massive beats with a Bmore twist.
Ackeejuice Rockers from Italy give “Piano Loco” a massive Moombahton makeover with deep bass, chopped up synth madness and everything the Tropicalista’s heart could wish for.
Czech-Peruvian talent Chong X slows things down with his dubby version, only to freak you out with an insane drum-drop at the end.
Montreal tropical legend Poirier finally gives “Piano Loco” a smooth and driving vibe, focussing on flowing percussion and mesmerizing synth bleeps.
