Try Otra Vez
7" Vinyl Single Record
Brooklyn bass ambassador and host of East Village Radio's "Worldwide Smash" show, DJ Still Life, makes his debut appearance on wax for BSTRD Boots with "Try Otra Vez", a big CumbiAlliyah track! Originally released digitally by last August on the 9 year anniversary of Alliyah's death, Still Life's tropical re-fixings of Alliyah received international attention and had the blogosphere on fire. "Try Otra Vez", an infectious cumbia re-working of "Try Again" is now seeing the light of day on 7" wax through the Brooklyn-based BSTRD Boots label. Big shuffling drums, accordions, deep deep bass and a hint of squelchiness make this a solid recontextualization and playful appropriation of a performer whose talent continues to unite listeners years after her untimely passing nine years ago.
