Mexico!

28/08/20DJ Tron Releases Funky 45RPM Nugget On Basel's Burning Sole Records

Here's a very special delivery via Basel, Switzerland-based label Burning Sole Records, supplier of seriously funky vinyl since 2017. Back in June, the magnificent Mike Mory, alias DJ Tron, unveiled his scorching "Mexico" 7-inch record, featuring two fortified bangers on black, gold and white vinyl, each edition strictly limited to 100. 

Needless to say, the release flew off the shelves in no time and is now available again as a repress. Side A presents "Mexico (Pt. 1)", which kicks off on a sweet loop, heralded by latin horns before a b-boy-style beat and funky bassline pave the way for an infectious flute solo and prime-time percussive breakdown. The flipside brings us "Mexico (Pt. 2)", which is more straightforward and rhythm-oriented tune, unleashing driving hip-shaking combos onto unsuspecting dancefloors.

You may have guessed that both tracks draw heavy influences from Mexican culture, explaining the red, white and green cover design and frequent exclamations of "Méjico!". That being said, if funk, breaks and samples are your thing, you best not sleep on this one. Ándale!
