Fresh off the five-year anniversary of its monthly Tormenta Tropical party, the Bersa Discos crew is back with a new batch of can't-miss dancefloor heat and a new addition to the California-via-Buenos Aires label's roster - DJ Quality.
Hailing from Chicago, the 25-year-old Mexican producer was once firmly rooted in straight hip-hop, but he eventually began combining the Latin rhythms of his youth with more modern club sounds. Now, his efforts have culminated in Bersa Discos #8, a six-track outing that finds him weaving together bits of cumbia, bachata, Southern hip hop, R&B, Baltimore club, and more. Simply put, the results are potent, as the songs marry hard-hitting beats and club-ready sonics with genuine pop hooks - in Spanish and English.
Much like the Little Village neighborhood he calls home, DJ Quality straddles two worlds. Although his Latin heritage undoubtedly plays a significant role in his musical vision, Quality's production sensibilities clearly stem from years of bumping rap music on the radio and hearing high-end electronic music in the club. This intersection of sounds and cultures is something that Bersa Discos has always celebrated, which is what makes him such a welcome addition to the crew.
