Maybe what rapper says is true: it’s not likely summer time till  (aka trapero crew Los Santos, previously often known as PXXR GVNG) says so. If he’s proper, pull out your sunscreen and cost your seashore audio system as a result of the group simply dropped two mixtapes on the influential Barcelona-based label . Together, Reggaeton Antiguo and 808 & Xapiadoras comprise a alternative playlist for a celebration on the dunes or within the sheets.

Starting with the perreo undertaking: the effervescent “Es De La Mafia” hardly sounds just like the reggaeton antiguo the mixtape title guarantees, and “Tu Me Querrias?” offers extra Drake vibes than anything. But followers are unlikely to care concerning the misnomer; it’s horny music para bailar pegado, or hug your pillow and fangirl over your fave Mafia del Amor heartthrob. And there’s little doubt the boys are rising into these popular culture roles — is rapping about Roberto Cavalli (“Dice Que No Me Quiere”) as befits a runway . Mafia’s tracks proceed to easy into merchandise worthy of gents with their years within the business; much less fighter, extra lover.

The different mixtape is known as 808 & Xapiadoras, maybe to keep away from the intense over labeling of lure that we’re experiencing in 2017, a 12 months during which all the pieces from R&B to experimental membership music has been thrown into the style’s basket. PXXR GVNG has been with the style for years, to the extent that they’ve give you their very own definitions. “El lure es vender coca y ver memes,” tweeted Yung Beef the day earlier than the double mixtape dropped, nearly as good of a definition as you’re going to get today. As far as standouts go, “Lookin’ Like This” options FKi 1st, an Atlanta titan and Diplo mentee who describes his work as homegrown “trap that goes left” and joins a powerful checklist of who’ve labored with this crew. “Disisamor” is a candy, radio-ready R&B ode to ratchets that makes it clear, à la 2015 Mafia hit “Independiente,” that the crew’s precedence is babes who aren’t jealous.

The Mafia simply kicked off summer time; present some gratitude.
