One of the Dominican Republic’s best kept secrets, and undoubtedly one of Latin America’s best beat makers, DAMNBR comes back after a hiatus bringing us his classic sample based boom bap and experimental hip-hop beats. The industrious producer gives us a taste of what’s to come and judging by it, he’s sweeter than ever.

This is When the Magic Happens

Bacayne’s debut release with Stereoptico, Azure Magic is finally here.

This is the product of the last few decades of music flying through the airwaves, mixing together and landing in the list of influences of a producer that has as much talent as value for his own self expression. With a background in rock, a penchant for downtempo, both nostalgia and enthusiasm for hiphop and an unrelenting gameness for experimentation, Bacayne makes records that sound totally new but make you feel familiar at the same time.

A proud Dominican native, Bacayne is a great example of the cultural melding pot that is the island, sitting halfway between North and South America and with a great history of just getting it done and not taking no for an answer. If his debut album is any indicator, we have a lot to be excited about in the future.

Marvin Marlyn Brings New Mixtape Heat

The family is more than proud to present a new mixtape that serves as both a celebration and a taste of things to come. We struggle to believe 5 years have already passed since the release of Soy Otro Tu, Marvin Marlyn’s debut album, and the young artist is showing no signs of slowing down at all. From modern funk to jersey club, producing solo material as well as collaborating with any number of artists from a wide range of genres, Marvin just doesn’t seem to take breaks and is still full of surprises.

In the Heart vol. IV comes with 17 tracks of pure unreleased heat, many of which he will be releasing in his new album, coming towards late 2017. On it, we’ll have the joy of seeing Marvin collaborate with C-Funk (of Los Tetas), Fakuta, Kinetica, No Esta Fito and many more eclectic musicians, where his new focus will be on the live aspect of his material.

We’re very excited to see what the future holds for the production wizard, and in the meantime, can’t stop bumpin’ to what he keeps sending through. Cop it, blast it, enjoy it, and rest assured, this music was made with love.
