DJ Bitman Latin Bitman
DJ Bitman first made some noise years ago as part of Chilean hip-hop crew Bitman y Roban. Now, Bitman’s sample-heavy beat making is ready for the mainstream with the release of his sophomore solo album, Latin Bitman. This collection of happy head-nodding tracks and funky feel-good tunes with touches of Caribbean and Latin American samples is already making waves amongst the Anglo market, and that’s almost every Latino musician’s dream. Certain songs stand out, such as "Tropilove,” which is a bright track that blends funky electronics with silly samples. "Shine” almost sounds like it was made specifically to put a smile on anybody’s face, with its bossa-funk flavour. "El Diablo” stands out for its cheeky use of President Hugo Chavez’s UN speech (you know, the one where he called Bush the devil) and its funky breaks vibe. "Sra. Maria” is a slowed down and heavy, reggaeton-inspired track that features Latino MCs Tea Time and Rulo. Latin Bitman has a lot of quirky, funky moments that make Bitman seem like a Latino version of Kid Koala or Mr. Scruff. The album is entertaining enough to deserve a lot of attention and it definitely has me interested in hearing more from DJ Bitman. (Nacional)
