LA producer/DJ Kid Gusto is tapped for the 15th volume of Brooklyn's BSTRD Boots series and he's coming strapped with that latin heat. Right out the gate he drops a killer version of Afrosound's "Tiro El Blanco," a track that's been popping up on mixes and other cumbia edit records lately, and with good reason - the track is the bomb! Kid Gusto adds some new drums to it for extra bang on the dancefloor. A similar rework treatment is given to "Angola" with fat boom baps added for more of a head nod feel. On the flip "La Zenaida" gets a subtle bump, while "Safari Salvaje" murders with powerful breaks, big horns, and tropical chants galore. Recommended.
