Douster‘s latest move into modern methods of curating organic cultural music as King Doudou has been one of 2014′s more consistently entertaining, yet left-field projects. Thus, with the release of Compilado 1, what has been an entertaining series of edits and mixes reaches its height with the aid of a diverse contingent of South America’s most intriguing underground-to-mainstream trending artists. Peruvian bass groovers Dengue Dengue Dengue and Los Mirlos, Chilean rapper Zonora Point and Argentinian digital cumbia band Fauna. The true standout of the entire five-track EP may be “Meow,” a sumptuous bit of Baltimore club-feeling bass featuring Argentine emcee Catnapp. Not since the days of Roxy Cottontail and Larry Tee’s “Let’s Make Nasty” has there been a track to articulate funk and strictly feminine sex appeal and maintain true danceability. As an entire release, the project definitely highlights the talents worth watching from the robust and evolving South American continent.
