The fourth release from future looking Latin American netlabel Antartek comes from Amsterdam based Argentine born producer Makina. Potro (which translates as horse) consists of four prime cuts of ‘Ghetto Folk/House/Pisco Sour/Cumbia’(!) Makina takes house music foundations and layers them with slices of chicha guitar, cut up cumbia rhythms and even a drop of swaggering moombahton. The tracks have groove and are made for the dancefloor, following on from Antartek’s previous releases from Daniel Klauser and Matanza. Have a listen to the EP below and then go and download this along with all of the label’s EPs for free here!
