Bullerengue is a musical style and dance from the Caribbean Region of Colombia and the Darien Province ́ in Panama, and traditionally sung exclusively by women. 16 years ago, Panamanian producer Ingmar Herrera a.k.a. Lord Bontown & Kiribati went into the Darien jungle to record and produce the album Bunde and Bullerengue. Today the Berlin based Cacao Records bosses and brotherly duo of K.E.E.N.E. revive some of these powerful chants and percussive elements for Connected and the electronic dance community. The Darien Jungle and the heat are deeply present in the grooves from the off as ‘Bullerengue’ opens things with chunky drums and vocal wails that are authentic, organic and hypnotic. The bass is taught and tense and helps keep you locked in this most perfect moment. The brilliant ‘Bunde' then stays just as deep and humid, with the sound of jungle animals in the distance and a mesmeric lead synth spraying about the mix to enchanting effect. Last of all is a remix from fellow Berlin based duo Boot Slap who have released on Exploited and Get Physical and flip ‘Bullerengue’ into something masterfully melodic and deep rooted. This is another hugely atmospheric EP from Connected
