Asi Se Baila Zapateado en Hermosillo, Sonora
A charming video documenting a localized style of zapateado dancing from Hermosillo, Sonora in Northern Mexico. The homeland of my maternal ancestors. Interstingly, I dance a lot like this and I had no idea that I probably learned this style from my family.
Also from Sonora, a mesmerizing video showing the skill required to make perfectly round and paper-thin flour tortillas. Crossing my fingers traditions like these continue in our bulldozer of cultures world.
BLADEE FT. BONES – SHADOWFACE (JACKY LAVISH’ SLOW DOWN)
What I’m listening to nowadays. Swedish teenagers. Part of the Yung Lean crew.
Farhot – Represent Heart
Mark Ronson – Stop Me (Kissy Sell Out Remix)
Ebony Bones – What Difference Does it Make
Jabberwocky feat Elodie Wildstars – Photomaton
my best song of the year.

Kingdom – Bank Head (feat. Kelela)
Noriel Vilela – 16 Toneladas
If a band is going to make a remake of a popular song, it’s important to make the song your own and in my opinion, these two song remakes not only are owned by their respective groups but are better than the originals.
Los Rockin’ Devils – Gloria
