Generation Bass presents Puga – Ghetto Punk EP
A new assault in the ongoing battles to break Moombahton to a wider audience is the free series we will be presenting on the Generation Bass platform. This series will be free. Free as in sharing, not as in beer. Free as in inspiration and giving young and hardworking artists that need to be heard a voice.
We keep your woofers banging steady with this one. Puga, does that name ring a bell for ya? Think harder! Moombahton’s pioneer and inventor Dave Nada actually made an edit of this guy’s track “Sabina (Four Four Remix)” for his groundbreaking Rum & Coke EP! Yeah, do you remember now? This dude is already embedded in Moombahton history and is now expanding with help of the Generation Bass massive!
Puga is all the way from Ferreira do Zêzere, smack in the middle of Portugal. This quote pretty much says everything you need to know about someone who REALLY loves music: “Dad brought a Satellite TV home… Couldn´t understand what people were saying on any channel, soI started to watch music channels. The satellite had some new channels… Became fan of breakbeat, house and hip hop. Started to love Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy. Couldn´t get enough of music. Then found a CD in a Cereal box with Ejay and started to make beats. Some drums with no bass… WTF!? didn´t know a thing about production, only that I love doing beats…”
Now translate that to Moombahton. This is head first, rump shaking production at its very best. Aimed at the dance floor, and with a naiveté that gives it a freshness we have not heard before since we hooked up with Munchi!
The title track, “Ghetto Punk” drops super heavy kicks and snares, laced with some high pitched 808 snares and a mean ass wobble. The vocal samples are cut to perfection, telling you “you need a bass line funk”. Fresh and dope, this cut also gets a great rework by our man Sazon Booya who adds some chip tune crushed sounds and takes the cut slightly more back to its reggaeton basis. He also adds some evil synth lines that sound like lasers piercing through metal armor. Killer! “Bonfire” is slightly more percussive, giving some weird accents to a snappy 303-ish bass line that worms its way around the kick drums. But the drop.. man… Big Ting. “Stand Up” and “Bad Boy” follow a same pattern. The pattern of kick ass dance floor power that is. These 5 cuts will set the party off. Any party. A deaf people party, a brain dead zombie party if needed. Keep Puga in your visor, because this is the way Moombahton was intended to sound. And Munchi, watch your ass, because you have a contender for the crown from Portugal!
