La Raza: A tribute to Kid Frost and El Chicano (featuring El Dusty, Mellow Man Ace, Niña Dioz, Mexstep, Kool AD, Amaze 88).
Austin-based Grammy-nominated psychedelic latin funk band Brownout debuted their remake/tribute to Kid Frost's 25 year old Latin pride hip-hop classic "La Raza," digitally via NPR last year. Now, after many calls for a physical release, on Oct. 12th, 2016 or Dia De La Raza, Brownout adds to the celebration of the heritage of Latin America and the ethnic and cultural differences that make it distinct, by releasing this limited run 45
Arabeesh: The flip-side is an instrumental original that, as the title teases, has some Arab flare. The recipe for this cut seems to blend a dash of Cairo Jazz Band with and a pinch of desert-psych funk groove, in turn creating a full, slow-burning groove that is sure to mellow and get heads nodding.
