Download DJ Eko's Global Bass Mix '¡Paleta! Vol. 1'

DJ Eko drops '¡Paleta! Vol. 1,' a 50-minute mix of global bass with music from Magic System, R2Bees, D'banj, E.L. and more.

OG soultronica bass selector (and OKP Mixtape Mondays regular) DJ Eko rounds up the hottest global bass tracks in her latest musical odyssey. Inspired by her Brooklyn party of the same name, ¡Paleta! Vol. 1 is a masterful curation of classic azonto, zouglou, kuduro and kaseko joints across continents and decades. The 50-minute mix seamlessly places Abidjan quartet Magic System and Mali's Issa Bagayogo alongside reigning Nigerian/Ghanaian heavyweights D'banj, E.L, Omawumi and  R2Bees.
