Founded in 2009, PAPAYA REPUBLIK fuses Afro-Caribbean rhythms from Colombia with elements of jazz, funk and electronic music. The band’s first CD (Vol. 1) is an eclectic genre-bending collection of songs ranging from a classic bolero to infectious champeta, cumbia, chandé and porro-infused tracks featuring satirical lyrics that speak of Colombian reality.
This EP features 2 remixes from Krak in Dub and Charles Tox, and the original version of “Culo E’ Vaina Jopo”, one of the main hits from Papaya Republik.
Krak In Dub remix of “La Flaquita” completely reimagines the original tune, giving it the strenght of drum and bass rhythm, with powerful synths and sub bassline. Charles Tox went for a strong tropical champeta-like rhythm, decomposing samples, and adding wobbling synths.
