PANAMA CARDOON: Hasta La Wiggle (2014)

Hasta La Wiggle Panama CardoonIf you were wondering why there hadn’t been much action from Panama Cardoon and the Carnibal Records stable recently, here’s your answer. After a few years of booties and remixes on such labels as Resense, Bombastic Jam and Danny Massure’s Spring Strut, Carnibal main-man Cardoon is releasing his debut LP Hasta La Wiggle on which he gives full rein to his twin loves of latin breaks and reggae beats

SMOKEY BANDITS: Debut Remixed Vol. 1 (2013)

George Fotiadis and Quasamodo enlist the aid of a wild bunch of remix bandoleros on what the ‘Vol. 1′ tag would indicate is only the first in a collection of remixes of Smokey Bandits‘ debut LP Debut. Buffalo soldier Blend Mishkin dubs up the riddim on dusty reggae cut Smoke From The Attic, Washington bandidos Empresarios increase the beat on A Son’s Lament, and remix rustler

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 008 (2013)

Carnibal Records have, within seven releases, established a reputation for top quality latin breaks with the occasional bit of something else thrown in for good measure. Carnibal 008 eschews the sound of South America however, and takes in as many continents in a single release as the plot of World War Z. First Panama Cardoon smuggles his mellow vibe from Europe to Asia Minor in Bosporus

DJ ROAST BEATZ: Panama Ho’s (2013) Free download

Rating: ★★★★★ I’m all for sisters not being held back by gender inequality but have you ever noticed how when DJs play tracks containing iffy lyrics like ‘shorty get on it’ and ‘she’s leaking, she’s soaking wet’ that the ladies, far from storming off the dancefloor in a fit of pique, get more filthy? It’s something that is almost certain to happen with this mashup bomb from DJ Roast Beatz

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 007 (2013)

Latin breakbeat freaks Carnibal Records are back with their seventh release and in the way of such things it is entitled Carnibal Records 007. Which, in the way of such things of course, immediately makes me think of James Bond causing havoc at some sort of fiesta. Thus it is that Palov & Panama Cardoon and Senor Griff all prove themselves capable agents in the field with Vamos

PANAMA CARDOON: Now That I Found You (2013) Free download

“It’s not bassy enough and the beat’s a bit weak.” Not the usual complaint levelled at Jamaican reggae, even old school stuff but that hasn’t stopped Athenian producer and Carnibal Records main man Panama Cardoon adding big drums and giving the bottom end more boom on his Now That I’ve Found You re-version. Some may feel that this is gilding the lily but as a wise man once said to

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 005 (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
Moving at breakneck speed with their release schedule, Greek label Carnibal Records drop volume 5 today and it’s the best one in a while. Lest anyone should accuse them of being a one-trick pony, this time they leap the hedges of the Latin breaks enclosure in several different directions at once. Doctor Stereo canters along the road

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 004 (2012)

The Carnibal cabal step up their activity here delivering Vol. 4 of their latin breaks series (which actually came out at the end of May) before the dust has even settled in the wake of mid-May’s Vol. 3. Time was when I would receive PR for a release a couple of months before it was due to generate ‘buzz.’ Then some marketing bell-end somewhere must’ve realised that ‘buzz’ has a

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 003 (2012)

The latin breaks party continues apace with Hammond Classics, Palov, Mr Bird and, of course, Panama Cardoon. A subtler affair than it’s predecessors, and largely mid-tempo there’s still plenty of upright bass, latin piano and shuffling breakbeat rhythms to swing those hips to which the ladies love – as all concerned are well aware. Caribe opts for a sweaty cumbia groove
