Epic track ‘Pretty Cliche’ from the WARA EP on Movimientos Records has made its mark as a live favourite and as one of the first tracks ever to blend Cumbia with Cuban Timba and Hip Hop – a true Latin-London style mash up!! Both our remixers bring their own unmistakeable dancefloor sensibility to proceedings with Makala giving it a Cumbia-Moombahton type treatment and Palov infusing the track with big Afro-dancehall bounce.

The Remixers:


A prolific DJ, musician, producer and remixer who’s been on the scene for two decades, playing massive clubs and festivals across Europe. A stalwart of the ever excellent Lovemonk Records with several releases and a recent album, ‘Unexpected Tapas’, on the label. Makala also hosts monthly Global Funk Parties in his local Basque Country with the likes of Alice Russell & TM Juke, Nickodemus, & Daniel Haaksman. His production styles veer from Spanish rumba beats, gypsy swing, funk and jazz to more tropical sounds like latin, boogaloo, cumbia and ska, seamlessly combined with modern electronics.


With a style that blends latin flavours, block breaks, exotic soul, cumbia, swing and tropicalismo, Palov’s reputation continues to soar following a highly acclaimed series of E.P releases with his partner Mishkin (as production duo Palov & Mishkin) for labels like Gamm, Resence, Scribble, Rebtuz. He’s also remixed for The Hot 8 Brass Band and Lovemonk’s Más Achilifunk – Gipsy Soul From 21st Century. He recently launched his own label Carnibal bringing more funky tropical beats and mash ups.
