Rumba to the Boombaa
Richard Vission & The Violator - 2 to the 3 (Original Mix) [Mixmash]
Richard Vission - Boombaa (Original Mix) [Mixmash]

Veteran American house DJ Richard Vission knows how to throw a party. He’s also a very solid producer with a ton of diversity in his style, always keeping his stuff fresh and fun. His new EP Boombaa, released by Laidback Luke’s Mixmash label, is just that–two hard-hitting bangers with a mix of Dutch, breaks, tribal, and good ole school house.

The real killer in this EP is the second track 2 to the 3. Combining fidget, breaks, and insane electro, I’m absolutely loving this track right now. Namesake track Boombaa is also quite excellent. It has the more “traditional” trademark Dutch whistle. Let’s be honest… it can either be great or get really old these days. It works pretty well in this track, though. The buildups drop into a catchy old school beat that reminds me of Vission’s fantastic album Automatic. Keep an eye out; this guy’s still got the goods!
