A little bit hip hop and a little bit rock and roll (Audio)
A few days ago listener Sean Priest described us on Twitter as follows: “Great music and will-they-or-won’t-they chemistry.”
“Will they or won’t they what?” I asked my co-host Felix Contreras jokingly when he showed me the tweet. “Kill each other?”
But Sean is onto something. One of the great pleasures of doing Alt.Latino is discussing music with Felix, a brilliant and experienced musician himself, whose taste in music is quite different from mine. We often talk about the fact that I acquired my love of music through dancing, and he fell into it as a player. Those two experiences make for pretty interesting conversations and a very eclectic music mix.
This week on Alt.Latino, we’ve really got a little something for everyone: the lovers, the nostalgic, the sad — even the angry. We start off urban in Mexico with Niña Dioz’s new mixtape and then move up to the California Bay Area, with a mashup of Los Rakas, Ladybug Mecca and E40 that had me bouncing in my seat.
Since both Felix and I call California home we decided to linger there and party a little longer with Bang Data’s Maldito Carnaval. Pretty soon we head back into Latin America, with stops in Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Chile.
