Farruko – “Pepas (King Doudou Bouyon Remix)”

One of the indisputable musical highlights of 2021 was Farruko’s ode to the chemical party called “Pepas”. But King Doudou, a producer who knows a thing or two about party music, has renewed the power of the song. In his hands, “Pepas” becomes a frantic rush somewhere between happy hardcore and electronic merengue. This limited edition remix sums up the nervous feeling of facing an uncertain New Year. – Marcos Hassan

Los Walters – “Dinamarca”

Following the release of their double farce Miss Universe LP, Boricua’s synthpop dynamos, Los Wálters, cap off an already stacked 2021 with a punchy new single titled “Dinamarca”. The track focuses on the feeling of being lost in the woods that we now experience on a daily basis, leaning into the darker industrial sound cultivated on songs like “Pop Sin Tí” and “Antifaz”, and celebrating the end of another with emotion. eventful year. – Richard Villegas

Lienzos – “Contando Estrellas”

With her new single “Contando Estrellas”, the Venezuelan Lienzos empties her reserve of older songs to close a chapter of her career before moving on to music. Originally recorded in 2020, this pretty sparse electronic pop jam is bursting with optimism. Lienzos dreams of someone special day and night, but she focuses on the beauty of their connection rather than worrying about what might come out of it. She takes a leap of faith while clinging to hope. – Cheky

Solo Fernández, Gaby de los Santos – “Lugar”

Dominican independent rockers Solo Fernández have had a record breaking year, gradually recovering from pandemic stagnation with numerous festival performances and a series of groovy new cuts from their upcoming EP, due for release in early 2022. Their latest single is “Lugar”, an atmospheric, math-rock flavored collaboration with indie-pop acoustic pixie Gaby de lo Santos, pondering fleeting moments of magic that should be cherished lest we ever experience them again. – Richard Villegas

El Club de Amigos Los Mejores del Amor – “Octavita en El Pozón”

The Maracaibo El Club De Amigos Los Mejores del Amor trio are regaining power by being outspoken and keeping things as local as possible. For the first glimpse of their next one Volume III the album “Octavita en El Pozón”, they took the hilarious ad that serves as the cover of the single to develop an indie rock story of a hopeful man dressed and ready to celebrate New Years Eve in a traditional place of Maracaibo, only for his wife to break her dreams of drinking beer and dancing on the gaita. Tears and laughter are guaranteed here. – Cheky
