Another international artist I caught was the DJ out of Bogota, Colombia known as Pernett. There is a hot music scene coming out of Colombia right now, producing electronic/hip hop type groups like Bomba Estéreo, Choc Quib Town, Systema Solar, and more. I believe Pernett will soon be joining their ranks. What makes him so great is his Caribbean influences, not just sticking strictly to Colombian sounds but venturing elsewhere in paradise land. At SXSW, he had a packed house of traditional world fans jumping up and down, I think it’s safe to say he’s only going to get bigger in the international DJ scene.

So diving into Latin music more, Last.fm somehow pointed me towards this fine group of DJs from the same Bogota, Colombia scene that brings us Bomba Estereo, Choc Quib Town, Systema Solar, etc…These guys seem to mix more genres than a lot of DJs from the area (or their badass picture you see above) but the track below really stuck out the most, possibly due to the electronic remake of Scott Joplin’s famous “The Entertainer”
Never really heard a remake like that before. See what you think

Ok this is sweet. Not the sweetest thing ever, a bit repeating…but sweet nonetheless. This is a track from Funny Ox in France. Once again, not sure how popular Funny Ox, but he has that ‘France Trance’ background and drops it like it’s hot over this Systema Solar track. Systema Solar of course is the hip hop/electronic group out of Colombia, which I may post about later. But for now…get your head straight with this bumping mix.
