ZOMBIES FOR MONEY — Heavy Bass Champions of the World Vol. XX
To celebrate 20th release in our globetrotting Heavy Bass Champions series, Latin lovers Zombies for Money are back with two big-room bass tracks to raise the dance floor from the dead. The duo of Manaia and Klipar always stay true to the tropical electro-house formula they helped pioneer, and it has paid off in huge heavy bass hits like “Numbra One”, “Oy Shaba” and “Kolkata” supported by DJs like Diplo, Crookers, Tittsworth and Lil’ Jon of Buraka Som Sistema. For this release, they team up with fellow Portuguese electro producers Drop Top (“Navajo”) and Jony Tevez (“Breakin Bad”) to show the world how low Lisbon really can go.
With five EPs already under their belt for Trouble & Bass, Zombies ate some spicy linguiça and burped out two bad boy club slayers in the form of “Navajo” and “Breakin Bad.” It’s midnight in the desert of good and evil on “Navajo,” as arrows fly through a gathering of tribal drums, hypnotic vocal scatting and kicks so sharp they would make a cactus cry. Meanwhile, Kokopelli plays a hypnotic flute that charms all the club wolves into shuffling the night away. With more claps than church on Sunday, “Breakin Bad” is a wild and nasty roll out with chopped up MC vocals percolating over a landscape of sinewy synth melodies and Dutch bleeps; you can almost see all the holographic ass shaking from here.
