French label Booty Call Records, home to Kaptain Cadillac, Marvy Da Pimp and more, have just dropped this 4 track offering from the one and only DJ Godfather. Living up to his name, DJ Godfather is a Detroit staple who (along with DJ Assault) pretty much invented the Ghetto Tech genre, heading up Twilight 76 Records. His Detroit Booty Callin’ EP features some classic Ghetto Tech sounds, and even some Juke, with guest collaborations from DJ Rashad, Good Money and Lil Miz 313. If you wanna answer the call, go get it here.

Stream ‘Half On A Baby’ Remixes

The Fader had the first look yesterday with a stream of our ‘Half On A Baby’ Remixes EP, out October 25th on Mixpak, and now we’re presenting the full set of remixes, featuring Mosca, Funkystepz, Schlachthofbronx, Bert On Beats and Dubbel Dutch, alongside the Dre Skull produced original.

On its own, ‘Half On A Baby’ is a proper Caribbean dancehall/pop anthem, but when combined with remixes from some of the most exciting names in underground bass music it becomes something more. Dubbel Dutch takes “Half On A Baby” deep into the underground without losing sight of the melodicism that makes the original so enticing. Another member of the Mixpak fam, Schlachthofbronx, flips the track on it’s head, turning it into a tempo-shifting Power Soca heavy hitter.

Bert On Beats and Funkystepz hand in contemporary bass takes, with the former going hard and the latter taking a more melodic, tropical approach. Finally, Mosca (Number, Night Slugs, etc) comes with a subtle-yet-banging remix that simultaneously references early-90′s house and hyper-modern UK sounds.

Watch this space for the official release next Tuesday, 25th October.

Sonora – La Isla Bonita

Now that Drake made OG Ron C’s names even more famous by incorporating his chopped and screwed version of Marvin Room in the actual video for the song, Chopped and Screwed is back. Sonora has been making wonderful blissed out zouk, reggaeton, moombahton business for a while. The Texan decided to try his hand at re-crafting this Madonna classic. The result is something that is more than a sizzurp drenched cover, the song has been allowed to linger in spaces that were not there before. The lack of words is highlighted by the drums, which add some toughness to such a light track.
