Just about two months ago, we gave you the heads up about San Antonio, TX, producer Sonora and his downloadable Siempre Fresco EP for the Austin-based party/blog/label Peligrosa. Now, we have a choice remix of one of those five tunes by the producer’s friend and fellow San Antonian Mexicans With Guns (pictured above). MWG’s booming rework of “Paraiso” grabs the cumbia- and reggaeton-inspired rhythms and equatorial sound palette of the original track and, after a slow build, wraps them around his own staples: eye-rattling 808 kicks, filthy low-end undulations, and a club-ready swagger. Maybe it’s because of their southern roots, but this pairing of the two producers shows us that Texas may have a thing or two to teach the world about sweltering Latin party music.
