Vegas has been coming back hard this year with a slew of fresh tunes. I was lucky enough to see him live at Carnival one year with Elephant Man, Sean Paul, Lady Saw, Harry Toddler, Kip Rich & Lexus. It was siiiiiick.
This absolute banger is on the Cheerful riddim and is currently rocking the Ghetto Bassquake soundsystem alot.
Mr Vegas - Da Ting Deh

Thats Carlos Gardel, the king of Tango, chilling with Maradona in La Boca.
So much good shit coming out of Argentina. This is the best cumbia tune I have heard.
Turby Schmidt - Caballeros con Descuento
Turby Schmidt also makes techno. Get some more on his myspace.

The most memorable frizbee I've ever played was in the Salar De Uyuni salt desert in Bolivia, the largest salt flat in the world. It only lasted about five minutes beacuse we pretty much collapsed due to the lack of oxygen. It used to be a lake 40,000 years ago but it dried up leaving behind a whole lotta salt at a very high altitude. If you ever get the chance to visit it, you will see red and green coloured lakes, mind bending rock formations, giant rabbits, flamingos, a cactus covered island and some of the strangest scenery on the planet. Its like visiting Mars for a few days by jeep.

Mr. Jones is back with a class bit of Houston Badness (thanks to These Rocks Pop). Raising the game by not only reminding us of his myspace but his phone number too. Strong.
Mike Jones - Turning Headz
and Rock Steady Drew sent me his tight Baltimore'd Rhianna remix.
Rhianna - Don't Stop The Music (Rock Steady Drew MJ2 Mix)

Here at Ghetto Bassquake carnivals not over. I had some freshly squeezed 4x4 garage for you but the vinyl rip didn't happen. In the meantime i've had a dig around and found some gemz anyway. The first soca song I bought and still my favourite.
Beenie Man - Jump And Wine (vinyl rip)
Off the new album from Mexican Institute of Sound some twisted mexifun from DF.
Mexican Institute of sound - La Kebradita
Ok carnivals over. I'm going home to be sick.

And I forgot that its Ghetto Bassquake's 1st birthday too. So thanks to all my readers for their comments and support with this blog, we're gonna have a little mp3 party.
First a reggae sampling baile funk number that uses Mr. Vegas's Pull Up.
DJ Luciano Oliveria - This One Too (zshare)
And a new Crookers remix that just straight bounces.
Mark Stewart -We Are All Prostitutes ( Crookers Remix) (Zshare)
And If anyone wants to send me some birthday tunes I would be happy :)
