Just last month, the Dominican songstress known as Maluca, unleashed her latest record entitled “Trigger”. Opening up with a nostalgic sample of El General’s “Tu Pum Pum”, “Trigger” rapidly pivots from the pitched down sample to an enticing blend of airy synth lines and Maluca‘s sultry vocals. A potent concoction of latin-pop, reggaeton, hip-hop and electronic undertones; “Trigger” is back yet again with a host of top-notch remixes from the likes of Brenmar, ETC!ETC!, Mess Kid, and Rizzla.
Lending his sound to the original, NYC based producer Brenmar kicks off this healthy spread of remixes with his captivating rework. Raising the tempo with the addition of an ingenious jersey club chop, Brenmar‘s rendition will undoubtedly have you bobbing your head hypnotically within seconds of pressing play. Next up on the EP, trap-lord and moombah extraordinaire, ETC!ETC!, delivers his inventive take on “Trigger”. Deviating the focus from Maluca‘s vocals, ETC!ETC!‘s remix builds steadily, bolstered by a rhythmic drum kit, before a barrage of sirens, chambered bullet samples, and high-pitched synths unload and flip the original on its head. Concluding the EP, Mess Kid and Rizzla pay homage to the alluring nature of Maluca‘s vocals with their reworks of track. Slowing down the pace of the original, Mess Kid‘s remix functions as a full-blown R&B ballad. Vocal splicing sits center stage, as lofty synths envelope the listener and gently push the progression throughout this emotive rendition. Retaining the dembow beats of the original, Rizzla‘s effort cleverly strikes the balance between R&B jam and a dance floor destroyer. Atmospheric yet propulsive, Rizzla‘s rework is an ideal combination of sex appeal and bounce.
