The new Que Bajo Records release Uproot Andy’s Worldwide Ting Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off, with 6 more remixes of 6 musical styles from 6 distinct parts of the world. ‘America’ sees the K’naan tune that sampled Ethiopia’s Mulatu Astatke, as well as Astatke’s original both remixed and joined together by a heavy swinging cumbia rhythm. ‘El Forastero’ remixes Galileo’s version of a Colombian salsa classic with the most blazing horns. ‘Bassoue’ is a dancehall and dembow take on a feel good Calypso tune by Les Rapaces from Guadeloupe. ‘Raba Raba’ remixes Algeria’s Khaled aka the King of Raï. ‘Camino a Colombia’ punches up the Mexican sonidero style cumbia of New York based Estrellas de la Kumbia and ‘Bonina’ rounds it out with a remix of the ciranda tune by Brazil’s Siba e A Fuloresta. All with a heavy dose of bass, plenty of dembow, and those Uproot Andy synth melodies. Grab it as a free download on Quebajo.com or stream below.
