Happy hump day! Get down with this track from Streetbeat DJ Jamez Bluntz:
An interesting track off Dutch techno producer Egbert’s new LP, Warm. This track fuses progressive-house inspired melodic elements with techno-inspired rhythmic elements, but it’s not just an intellectual exercise. Egbert keeps it cohesive and groovy, a testament to his production chops. Hemelpoort is (unsurprisingly) all warm vibes, but fans should check out Naar De Ruimte En Terug, the next track on the album, for a more melancholic take on the same concept.
Today’s track was picked by Continental Drift DJ Claire.
Hailing from Cuba, Los Zafiros (The Sapphires) were a close-harmony vocal group that was part of the filín movement that combined American doo-wop with Cuban genres like bolero and bossa nova. Their album Bossa Cubana was re-released in 1999, and their track “He Venido” was featured on the show Breaking Bad.
Happy Friday WNUR fans! Here’s a fun track to take you into the weekend, courtesy of Phat Beats DJ Pat.
