2Peke's Zouk Bass Banger 'Txillo'

Stream Portuguese producer 2Peke's Zouk Bass banger "Txillo."


Up-and-coming Portuguese producer/DJ 2Pekes recently blessed the internet with "Txillo," a  flavorful zouk bass banger. 2Pekes, influenced by the likes of afro-house and dancehall, has been perfecting his craft since the beginning of the millennium, becoming a presence in the new zouk bass scene. "Txillo" fuses modern upbeat synth tones with traditional African percussive elements to create an innovative cut. With an entrancing synth shifting throughout the beat followed by sharp hitting snares, the track is a vibrant and consistent piece with subtle dynamic breaks. Stream 2Pekes' "Txillo" bellow and grab it from Generation Bass' solid Deep In Zouk EP.
