Feid, Mora, Eladio Carrion – “Fumeteo (Remix)”

Feid’s latest album, Inter Shibuya, presents a new leader in the Colombian vision of reggaeton. Among the hits written by the 29-year-old artist, “Fumeteo” deserves a climax with 12 million views on YouTube and a somber production by Sky Rompiendo, who managed to bring a 2000s hip-hop aura to Timbaland. . . All of this is more than enough for Feid to revamp his own song, a task that has been successfully accomplished by Eladio Carrion’s laid-back style and Mora’s storytelling style. – Felipe Maia

Sech, DJ Khaled – “Borracho”

We don’t know if Sech found himself in this situation playing himself, but we do hear him go through it in “Borracho”. With the tallest hypeman / meme living by his side, the Panamanian emcee drips honey over dembow’s surprisingly hard beats, lamenting that his lover is gone while he drinks himself into oblivion. Hook after hook land as he yearns for his partner, wishes him the best and tries to forget him completely with the help of alcohol, making “Borracho” a late contender for the sad perreo anthem of 2021. -Marcos Hassan

REYNA – “Home alone”

Christmas is fast approaching and we can already feel it in the air. But if you still can’t, don’t worry, REYNA has just what it takes to get you in the holiday mood. Written over the past winter and stripped down, “Home Alone” gives us just the right amount of warmth and nostalgia that any good Christmas song should have. At the end of the song, we also want to curl up on a couch with someone special and watch a young Macaulay Culkin terrorize a pair of burglars. – Cheky

Late Nite Laundry – “Back of My Head”

Originally from Chicago, soul group Late Nite Laundry underwent a sudden recalibration last year after their debut EP stopped touring due to the pandemic and their lead singer left the group. The remaining members stepped forward and released new music at a steady pace, with a new but not yet new identity that maintained the jazzy recipe that got them off the ground to begin with. Their new single, “Back of My Head,” is where the two meet as the vocals of bassist Emily Burlew and guitarist Ari Lindo slip into a dreamy tune, together echoing the heartbreak of her lyrics. – Juan J. Arroyo

Natisú – “La Distancia”

As the title of his brand new album suggests Hay Un Fuego, a brilliant and powerful fire engulfed the heart of Chilean singer-songwriter and producer Natisú. Whether it’s fanning the flames of revolution on the recent single “Somos la Resistencia” or embracing transformative symbolism on the new existential stand “Las Distancias”; Natisú explores evolution and rebirth with radically delicate vocal performances and explosive electronic breakdowns. – Richard Villegas

MUSAS – “Destino” feat. Luis Eduardo Acústico

From the soundtrack of the Netflix series La Casa de Papel to Brazilian funk “Só Quer Vrau”, the old-fashioned Italian protest song “Bella Ciao” has been revamped in many versions over the past decades. The Musas trio jump in the same trend with “Destino”, a single that begins with the song’s more than recognizable original melody and turns into an EDM, salsa choke frenzy. Luis Eduardo Acústico, a Colombian singer who has gained the spotlight in his country, takes the stage with a few lines and dance moves, both equally well handled by the girl group Musas. – Felipe Maia

Austero – “Despierto En Mi Mente”

Listening to “Despierto En Mi Mente”, we can conclude that rock n ‘roll has withdrawn to the Chihuahua desert to evolve into its next phase. This trio produces a rusty metallic waltz with undertones of post-hardcore, bringing gravity to their simple yet imposing sheer. Surprising guitar melodies hint at the emotion in the song, fully blossoming when the piano appears in the outro. -Marcos Hassan

Rawayana – “Caney” (feat. Jambene)

After the release of their fourth studio album Cuando los Acéfalos Predominan just a few months ago, the Venezuelan collective Rawayana is back with a new collaboration with singer Jambene. “Caney” takes them back to the reggae / rocksteady pop sounds that made them popular in the first place, and it’s no coincidence: this song is Rawayana congratulating himself on all the hard work they’ve put in over a decade. , and we’re ready to join in the celebration. – Cheky

San Mateo – “Mala Tuya Pero No” exploit. Los Rarxs

Vermont and Puerto Rico may seem strange at first glance, but it’s hard to deny the fruits of this union when listening to the sound of self-proclaimed psych / soul group San Mateo. San Juan-based Matteo Burr and Burlington music fixture Matthew Hagen released their single “Sorry don’t dry those tears” and gave it some sazón courtesy of trap / soul group Los Rarxs. Vento Alejandro’s voice honors Craig Mitchell’s original lyrics while giving them a decidedly Boricua twist while hosts Erre and FOKINFROID inject the swagger that has just been wronged and have the confidence to move on. – Juan J. Arroyo

Inka – “Jarabe”

Spirited Dominican rapper Inka has come a long way from the original narratives of early singles like “La Ambulancia,” creating increasingly sharp bars that target colorism, materialism, and social inequality. Offering a spoonful of perreo catharsis on their latest single “Jarabe”, Inka expresses her frustrations at the overwhelming concrete sprawl of Santo Domingo and the incessant duel of hate and grinding that makes dance a soul-nourishing refuge. – Richard Villegas
