Makala and Makala feat. Nacion Funk All Stars.
This Spring DJ & producer Mikel Unzurrunzaga Schmitz aka DJ Makala is getting ready for a european tour. After his first single release "Partió La Tabla / Cartoon Tune" (2009, Lovemonk) and second double 7-inch called "Vamos a Comer" (2010, Lovemonk), containing 4 explosive Latin-flavoured tracks, which got excellent feedback from DJs & producers such as Jelly Jazz, TM Juke, DJ Yoda, Fort Knox Five, Recloose, Dusty, Flevans, Mad Mats, Laurent Garnier,... Makala is now dropping a new 10-inch called "Swinging the Afro Mambo", while Summer 2011 will see the release of his second studio album "Unexpected Tapas". The prolific Basque artist has been working the decks for over 15 years now, playing at clubs & festivals all over Europe. While eclecticism is still very much his middle name, lately he has been throwing more & more tropical styles like boogaloo, cumbia, rumba & swing jazz in the mix, everything seamlessly combined with beats & modern electronics. In short: tons of dance & fun.
