For the second year running Isa GT asked her peers and musical inclined friends submit tracks for the ETORO end of year compilation. Alongside this she liaised with MTV Iggy to chose 3 tracks from their call for submissions. The result is an eclectic 15 track X-mas compilation.
￼1. Murlo, man of the moment, a very prolific artist with a unique style opens up the compilation with Rose Bud, a sophisticated track and the perfect way to introduce you to the sweet sounds of the first part of the comp.
2. Maricas Malas remix of the extravagant Dani Umpi from Uruguay, the remix just takes us back to the 80’s and makes us think of Prince and Eddie Murphy on Beverly Hills Cop.
3.“Navidades” resident, Multifunkshun. Last year his Adriano Celentano homage track was one of the most popular songs in the compilation, this year he doesn’t disappoint coming back with a great sounding piece of cosmic disco.
4. One of the songs chosen from the open call- captivated Isa’s attention from the first listen. Stephanie Morillo remix of The R.O.A.R Mod, The Sea. Poignant music and Morillo‘s haunting voice melt perfectly to make this dreamy song.
5. Remember brings a perfect combination of breaks and spiralling sounds, a playful lullaby by Toot!.
6. dj ALLCAPS repeats Navidades spot this year with his new project Dots & Feathers track Venue taking us on a lengthy and interesting journey.
7. We welcome A.J Holmes & The Hackney Empire who join the Etoro Records family with their uplifting Mulumba, one of the two African flavoured tracks of the compilation.
8. Xmas is Here! A brilliant, catchy and very xmassy song by super producer Captain Bubbles featuring Isa GT on vocals, remind us of xmas omnipresent xmas cheer.... Xmas number 1 material ;)
9. The Grupal Crew Collective, a joined effort of artists from Colombia, Russia, Chile and italy, bring us Pato Feo. Tricky rhymes and hard clubby sounds make this powerful song.
10. For the most club oriented part of the compilation, we have Caballo & Dei5hon with TU, a catchy cumbia reggeaton.
11. African house new promise Moroka with a xmas infused afro house track, makes you wish all xmas songs were like this one.
12. Diablo is the song Latin music superband Plastic Caramelo bring to this year’s compilation, so catchy, this mega banger will surely be making you dance, check the video for this song on YouTube, straight up hotness!
13. Ven Papi by Dembowsky carries on the mood, the party mood, and the party don’t stop!
14. Mash Up International, Isa ‘s Swedish friends bring their unique track a remix of Utomlands by rapper Zacke. The only track in Swedish and with the funniest lyrics - Wear your flip flops/ Put your hands in the air and clap.
And to wrap up the compilation 15. Mayan Prophecy by Isa GT, a complete banger with hypnotic vocals that will make you fall into trance.
We hope these 15 tracks become the soundtrack of your xmas and new year festivities!
